Nvidia's highest priced cards have fallen another 14%, for the RTX 3090 Ti. In fact, that's one of the few graphics cards where the current best retail prices beat the average eBay price — the RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition is in stock for just $1,100 at Best Buy (opens in new tab), while Newegg has the Asus TUF for $1,200 (opens in new tab). Both of those are better than the average eBay price.

Other current generation cards that you probably shouldn't buy on eBay include the RTX 3080 Ti (opens in new tab) ($810 after instant rebate right now), RX 6650 XT (opens in new tab) ($314 at Amazon), and the RX 6400 (opens in new tab) ($135 after $15 rebate). The retail prices are prone to large fluctuations, of course, but with the reportedly high inventory levels and the pending arrival of Nvidia's RTX 40-series and AMD's RX 7000-series RDNA 3 GPUs, we can expect a continued erosion in prices on the current generation cards.

Previous generation cards also continue to drop in price. It's shocking to think that many of these cards were selling at more than their original MSRPs just six months ago. Now, the average is one third below MSRP, and that's being propped up by the relatively high prices on cards like the GTX 1650 and GTX 1650 Super.

If you're after a good deal on a graphics card, Nvidia's RTX 2060 is staging a comeback. The EVGA RTX 2060 routinely goes for $230 an Amazon (opens in new tab), sometimes lower. Performance is lower than the RX 6600, at least in non-DXR/non-DLSS scenarios, but it's also double the performance of a GTX 1650 and 20% higher performance than the GTX 1660 Super. It's one of the few previous gen GPUs other than the GTX 16-series that's still available at retail.

    "The most desirable cards are now selling for close to triple their official launch prices."And THAT my friends, is why we don't buy sh*t on eBay (aka: Scalper's Haven).

    Me blindly buying a second-hand Vega 56 above MSRP years ago didn't look so bad now

    This scalping <Mod Edit> needs to end and Nvidia, ASUS, EVGA, MSI, Sony could stop this if they wanted to in a second.
    Years ago I ended up with a DVD exercise program P90 I think, since I didn't want it I listed it on ebay took about 15 minutes for the add to be pulled for copyright infringement.
    I wasn't a authorized dealers and P90 was there copyrighted trademark like Nvidia, ASUS, EVGA, MSI, Sony are all copyrighted trademarks so they do have the ability to stop this.
    People should be able to sell there stuff on ebay and make money but not in this way sucking everything up from every retailer amplifying the shortages for there own benefit.
    Nvidia could simply ask for every add that uses there copyrighted trademarks more then 10% above MSRP pulled down the scalping and bots would disappear overnight.

    Only eBay can stop this in a heartbeat. All they have to do is ban people from selling new graphics cards or game consoles or whatever for 6 months. That’s it. People need to wise up and boycott eBay altogether until they wise up.

    You know what else needs to stop, on eBay? 0 feedback accounts.

    I've been watching Nikon Z6 auctions for over a month and EVERY single one is bid up to around £850. EVERY. Single.One. All tech item prices are seemingly being inflated and that benefits oems, eBay and share holders. It's annoying. It's obvious. It's so obvious, yet most threads are full of people shouting that it isn't an issue and that there's nothing going on.

    Yeah, okay.

    It used to be really easy to track on auction sites with a little detective work.
    It has been many years now since ebay hid the bidding IDs so it was almost impossible to confirm it, and of course now that you can't see the obvious, it doesn't happen as far as ebay is concerned.


    Shill bidding in auctions is the deliberate placing bids on the seller's behalf to artificially drive up the price of his auctioned item. Shill bidding has been known to occur in auctions of high-value items like art and antiques where bidders' valuations differ and the seller's payoff from fraud is high.

    Ebay makes far too much money to ever do this willingly.

    ^This!
    Honestly in this climate MS and Sony should just stop selling their consoles for a loss and sell the consoles for a higher price themselves and keep the profits vs allowing these low life scalpers (aka leeches) to make a quick buck.

    GPUs are a different story though, what needs to happen is for all the Cryptocurrency servers to be shut down in China and where ever else they are currently running. Kill Crypto and this whole thing goes away. There is absolutely no reason from Crypto currency ponzi scheme to exist.

    At least mining is getting diminished returns, hopefully it keeps dropping more and more and not only do they stop buying they will need to sell them to cut their losses.
    I would be happy if all gamers boycotted the 3xxx series just to let crypto crappers suffer all the losses but that isn't going to happen,

    Ebay is making money off the scalpers there is no reason for them to stop it. On the other hand Nvidia and it's vendors are dealing with pissed off customers and losing sales with tie in sales. I suggested a solution to this issue one call from one of Nvidia's lawyers letting ebay, stock-x, Facebook market place know if there products are sold on there sites all sellers will need to be authorized resellers. or they can expect legal action seeking damages for copyright infringment
