    Brand new RTX's for sale

    Why are new RTX's already for sale at CEX. They are more readily available than the like of Scan.

    No, they just want you to pay £1200 for a 3080.

    Re: Brand new RTX's for sale

    I presume anyone selling a card to CeX will do so at a slight loss. Perhaps this is attempted scalpers who are now finding it impossible to shift cards on ebay at a profit, so are dumping them on CeX to minimise losses.

    Re: Brand new RTX's for sale

    Guess it is the same reason why the latest consoles ended up there too. It's sad to see Cex buying products above RRP, to then sell them for even more... As if getting stock wasn't already hard enough for so many people and then you have this basically encouraging the issue

    Yup doesn't feel right at all.

    Hopefully people have the sense not to fall for it, it may be good but is it really that good?

    Is there any reason to want a Founders Edition card?

    The 3080 isn't hard to get, this one is £720: https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/comput...14430-pdt.html

    Re: Brand new RTX's for sale

    Never mind Nvidia 3000s, CEX currently have almost nothing in stock.
    Just 16 'cards' which ancient stuff like a HD6570, GT530 and two Blackmagic eGPU cases (Apple stuff with a 580 or Vega56).
    Nothing between the £125 1050Ti and those £470 Apple eGPUs.

    Curry’s cache the hell out of their website. The app is highly recommended if you want any chance of a fast (for Curry’s standards) transaction.

    It let me add one to basket, as long as I want to collect from the local store (which is OK for me, it's a 15 minute walk and I could do with the exercise).
    They have 5600X CPUs as well, a bit more interesting for me.

    Probably not, but for some reason they often seem happy to deliver a card to the local store when they wouldn't deliver one to me. I guess they run different warehouses for delivery to end users and stock replenishment.

    I had the opposite when buying an Oculus Quest 2, they would send one to my house but I couldn't get one delivered to store. So I got it from Amazon with free delivery, *shrug*
