    RTX2080ti - Black Market

    Why is the topic called "Black Market" ?
  3. BarackOBatman

    What really annoys me

    What really really annoys the crap out of the techie in me is when almost everyone i know refers to a USB Micro B cable as an "Android cable/cord"

    I think Newegg may have made an oops here? Seems too good to be true, but I got my order in, so we'll see... Sold by GeIL and shipped by Newegg, no sketchy marketplace seller or anything. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAGG87MM1929

    True to a degree, though it is entirely possible that this was completely beyond my control.

    I wanted the best, what can I say. lol But yes I understand that preordering is always a bad idea.

    In my opinion, I take my security seriously. Though it is ultimately up to me to make sure my numbers don't get stolen, so in that regard it is my fault.

    Thanks for the heads up. Is that better.

    Nvidia Rant

    This is a bit of a rant post. Had a bad experience with Nvidia's customer service. Someone got unauthorized access to my credit card, so my card company had to cancel it. This happened to be the same card I used to pre-order an RTX 2080 ti. When I reached out to Nvidia to tell them use my bank card instead, after being transferred to many different reps (including technical support) for 20 minutes or so they told me I needed to cancel my pre order and instead re order using my other card and also that there was no way for them to use another card for my order. This obviously wasn't going to work because all the RTX 2080 ti's are all back ordered up... When I explained that I cant re order, they apologized and said that I will have to wait until they come back in stock... Awesome... The fact that I'm a 2080 ti pre orderer aside... This is pretty lame. Like despite what product I ordered, they should be able to help with something like this.. I should have went to Newegg instead, this would not have been an issue. I already sold my GTX 1080 and now I'm stuck with a GTX 760 for gaming in 1440p. Well, at least now I get to see the launch reviews before I buy.
