Eight thousand dollars for a card that looks like it would struggle with running the dwm, never mind a game. That's obviously a typo.

By the way, just by looking at it I'd say you wont get much change out of it in gaming.

Supply and demand. There isn't that much supply...so the price goes up for people who have them.


If you look at the link for the sellers....the price is for a 20 pack of cards. Often businesses buy in bundles....hence why they have a pack of 20 of these.
