Only one card per household my ass

Is there a point here..?

 

People are doing what they can to scalp cards and sell them, it’s just business. It’s not cool, it’s not fun, it’s not “gamer”, but, people will always work the system if there is a system to work. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yea... if you dedicate the time to it, you can get them. Most of my friends who really wanted upgrades all got 3080’s and 3090’s. Just takes effort right now - and some luck.

No, that's not just a name? That's contact info. Thanks for the link to turnkey rigs though may as well give you commission on this one.

I'm not triggered. I got my cards. More wouldn't hurt.

 

Edit: I'm also pretty sure it was only one or two retailers that were trying to say only one card per household. And even then it was actually only 1 every 30 days.

The thing is that most manufacturers and retailers don't care. They give lip service, because they don't want the angry mobs aiming their pitchforks at them, but a sale is a sale. They could care less who gets them.

 

Now, that's not to say there aren't people within those organizations that do care. That's why LMG has been able to do this Verified Actual Gamer program.

I'm pretty sure only a couple of retailers said they were selling one per person. It's also possible he got them all from different retailers.

The title really makes no sense in relation to the picture.

On top of that, who cares? Certainly not the companies. A sale is a sale.

I mean, he's selling them. It's not exactly doxing when he put the info out there himself.

Thread locked. With the screenshot from the first post removed I think the purposefulness of this thread has run its course. I can sympathize with the frustration of not being able to get graphics cards at the moment but miners are going to mine, scalpers are going to scalp. Not much you can do about it and complaining every time you see A miner or scalper isn't going to help.
