I wasn’t quite as lucky as you Dylan as I had to wait in line for about 11 hours. Of course Indianapolis is a little more populated than the frozen tundra of Victoria😀
My first choice was the 3090, but those were snapped up quickly. I was about the 60th person in line arriving at 830pm (tickets handed out at 730am) but I did get my second choice in the 3080ti founders edition. At the August Best Buy drop, this south side Indianapolis location had some 3090’s and 3060’s left unclaimed and a few lucky people just walked in after they opened up and bought them.
It seemed as though the majority of people in line were there to buy and resell from everyone I spoke to. I overheard a couple people who were buying cards for mining. I think I was the only person there (at least it sure seemed that way) buying a card to build a computer.
I haven’t flown in nearly 6 years and I’ve been itching to get back to the skies again since the new sim was released. In 2019 we had planned to move in 2021 to get closer to work. So we sold the house, moved away from the sticks where an unlimited cellphone plan with hotspot was our only means of internet and now have a blazing fast 500Mbps fiber connection.
I really didn’t want to camp out all night, but there was no way I was going to pay scalper double n triple prices for a video card. I read up on what the best approach would be, discovering the BB drops at the end of each month at select stores, so I took the plunge.
Yup, I was a happy camper…Let the build begin😎
