WTF? Video Card Shortage

Post by Scooter » Thu Mar 11, 2021 10:12 am

I was recently looking to buy a new 4GB GeForce video card. Found a nice GTX 1050 Ti 4GB GDDR5 card for $400 bucks on Amazon. Purchased this past Friday, free next day Prime shipping. The card never came. Waited Sunday, nothing. The order then stated "Delayed Shipping". Contacted Amazon, they said the same crap. Told me it would ship within 24 hours. As of yesterday AM, still not shipped. Called ALL OVER the ATL area, no one had any video cards. Seems there is an issue with production wherever they are made, and no one has them.

Ended up going to a small PC shop and buying a used 6GB DDR5 GeForce GTX 1060 for $400.

No one is sure when they are getting cards in, but Amazon is STILL selling them. Listing on Monday showed they had 14 in stock. GD liars.
