“Market Isn’t What I Thought.” Says the Seller Who’s Trying to Unload RTX 4080 Graphics Cards at MSRP in Order to Avoid Return Fees


The “Market Isn’t What I Thought.” is what one seller is claiming as they try to move their various RTX 4080 graphics cards at MSRP. This particular person has seemingly gotten involved in the oft-profitable trade of scalping GPUs but now in a karmic twist of fate has been left holding the cards that many simply do not even want at MSRP.

Market isn’t what I thought so instead of sending them back to manufacturers, you can get them MSRP from me. Still very hard to get these cards. Receipts in hand and all are sealed brand new untouched.

As many people have already spoken up that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 is overpriced at $1,199 it has been the first RTX launch in many years to remain on the shelf. This seller lists the cards they are trying to move and it also paints a picture that perhaps AIB partners perhaps should’ve thought more about their pricing as well.

  • GIGABYTE Eagle OC RTX 4080 – $1,360
  • GIGABYTE Gaming OC RTX 4080 – $1,385
  • ASUS TUF Gaming RTX 4080 – $1,500
  • MSI Gaming Trio X RTX 4080 – $1,420
  • ASUS ROG Strix Gaming RTX 4080 – $1,850
  • Zotac AMP Extreme AIRO RTX 4080 – $1,500

As gracious as this offer would seem to be, a recent poll showed a majority of its respondents indicating the MSRP should be in the $700-$800 range so it’s doubtful this seller will have much luck moving these cards (but you never know). There have already been sightings during the recent Black Friday sales where some retailers discounted their own inventory. Additionally, some are speculating that the RTX 4080 could see discounted prices in the new year after the AMD Radeon RX 7900 series and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 12 GB graphics cards launch.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
