If you want an Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card, then two months ago, you could have paid up to $ 1,773, two and a half times the manufacturer’s retail price. However, according to Tom’s Hardware statistics, this price has dropped to 11%, just under $ 1,600, in January.

The RTX 3000 and AMD Radeon RX 6000 also have 5% to 10% discounts. This is the selling price listed by Tom’s Hardware on the eBay retail site, so it is not the manufacturer’s retail price. However, it shows that owning a gaming graphics card has become easier than before.

According to, the signs of cooling down are not only happening in the second-hand graphics card market, but even retailers in Germany have begun to reduce the selling price of VGA.
