Try buying a new Nvida RTX 3800 video card. Bots are starting to proliferate and resellers (like scalpers) are growing. Very annoying to the consumer.

Ha! I was able to snag one from EVGA.com when they went on sale Thursday morning. I got lucky I guess.

I have 3 hobbies: building custom watercooled PCs, photography, and audio (as in an audiophile). They're all very expensive hobbies.

So I built a fully custom watercooled PC earlier this year, and the 3080 is an upgrade to that system. The R5 arrives tomorrow. And I assembled a power amplifier with state of the art components a couple months ago. It's been an expensive year.
