VIDEO CARD PRICES EASE

Looking at a few models of video cards, prices are starting to ease over on fleabay. RX 5700 XT cards are now lower but still above MSRP. RTX 3080 cards are also much lower now but also still above MSRP. RX 6800 XT are still not in good supply so the few cards in the market are not finding their way on fleabay just yet. The RTX 3090 is a very power hungry card and while several have been sold again not many are available. The RX 6800 XT and RTX 3080 are rivals and pricing is still more than I want to spend.

High capacity power supplies are in short supply due to parts shortgages which limit manufacturing. Motherboards are abundant most models are available. Supplies of Intel and AMD processors seem to be good.

Over the last few months after Bitcoin came down it is now moving in a narrow band. The highly leverage exchanges are now reducing positions as prices are lower. Chia has slowed which has allowed more hard disks to be available for NAS users etc.

This graphic from a German survey shows prices have eased. Prices vary widely and auctions are still above MSRP.
