The great difference of GPU prices depending on countries.

The other day I was looking for a new prebuilt computer that was powerful enough for my game development career, so i swept into amazon thinking "Its going to be difficult, youtubers and everyone keep saying the prices are too high nowdays".

Well how wrong I was.

I bought a prebuilt computer second hand with these specs for only 666€.

 

Spoiler

GPU: RTX 3070 8GB
CPU: Ryzen 5 5600X 6x 3.7ghz Turbo
RAM: 16GB DDR4 3600mhz or something like that
STORAGE: 240GB SSD & 1TB of HDD


Looks like a scam right? Well it wasnt when it arrived. Of course the packaging could've been improved, but the computer works! And I verified the parts with a friend!

The purchase was done from spain, and it was shipped from netherlands apparently.

The same company offered similar products for such good deals.
Like a prebuilt computer with 2 GPU's for just 517€ (RTX 2060 & RX 570)

The best purchase of my life. Amazon doesnt seem that bad now.

Now leaving that asides, checking on the prices of some cards in spain, im quite surprised, because I had found cards like the RTX 2060 for mere 500€ itself or even 200€!
It's impressive how the prices are different from each other.

How are prices on your countries?

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really.

Most of the RTX 3070s hover (wildly) at the Rp. 20,000,000 range (around $1380) brand new in the local marketplace site I frequent. MSRP for RTX 3070s start at $499 so I guess it's still super inflated in my country.

 

I also just bought a second-hand GTX 1050 Ti a few weeks ago for my new build for Rp. 2,900,000 or $200. Not really a good deal imo, considering it cost $140 MSRP brand new 5 years ago, but with the current state of the market, I'd say it's pretty reasonable. Plus, it was in a super mint condition. 2 years of light usage, no scratches except at the fan labels, no dust at all, and performs basically like new. I've seen other listings asking for $250 and some even were crazy enough to ask for $345 and they are all in a worse condition.

My Rigs:
Hikaru (Main Gaming Rig): MSI B450M Pro M2-MAX | Ryzen 5 3500 | Palit GTX 1050 Ti 4GB GDDR 5 Dual OC | 12GB HyperX Fury DDR4-2666 (1x4GB + 1x8GB) | 1TB Seagate Barracuda + 1TB WD Blue | 550W Corsair CX550M | Armaggeddon Nimitz N5 Aurora Black | Maono AU MH-601 / Audio Technica M20x / Some cheapo tower speakers I ripped off a TV + DIY mini-amp made by my friend

 

Tsutomu (Relegated to HTPC): Gigabyte GA H81M-DS2 | Core i3-4170 | Zotac GT 730 2GB DDR3 | 4GB V-Gen Rescue DDR4-2400 (1x4GB) | 1TB WD Blue | 500W Deep Cool DE-530 | Unknown Hand-me-Down Late 90s Beige case
