Considering the prices of GPU's today I was planing on getting a Vega 64 but right now they are 2x - 3x as much and I am not paying more for the GPU then my entire rig lol.

I bought the

NVIDIA-EVGA-FTW-GeForce-GTX-1080-8GB

off of ebay like new was this a good deal?

I currently have a R9 390 and I can no longer max out FPS while on Ultra and I game at 1080p and I would like to hit close to my 144hz FPS on my monitor.

Ya I was thinking of getting a 1080 ti but they are all over $1k right now and I do not want to wait a year till they drop in price. Also no one has any in stock on almost every web site just eBay right now.

That's $230 above MSRP, but what can you do.

This is hilarious.
OK so your saying it tried to use a blocked port, got blocked, and switched to an unblocked port while waiting for the user to respond? - Why I love Gfaqs.

considering prices right now and No one has any in stock local and the cheapest on eBay is over $1000 I think it is a good buy with the inflated prices for the GPU market.

Also it is like new so it's just like buying a new one, I think I got a good deal considering.
