[Amazon.ca] Nvidia 1050ti $247.98

Long time lurker, first time poster. I know it's not a 3060, but at during this current market situation, this is one of the few graphics cards you can get for under $300.

considering i just sold a used 1050 Ti last week for $300 and people fought over it... This $247.98 card brand new is a very good deal. Though I am seeing it for $330

nvm had to click new and used and it showed cheaper ones

What a ripoff. I bought a brand new 1070 ti last year before pandemic for $320.

Ripoff pricing because of pandemic is still ripoff pricing

Did you have the buyer come over and test out the card? Going to sell my 1070, and the only thing stopping me is how to prove that it works as I don't have a PC to put it into anymore.

Nope, don't need to do this

As long as YOU are sure it's working, then good to go.

That's crazy. I have seen better or equavilent cards on ebay and kijiji for a lot less. Bought a 780 and a 960 for $200 each.

You can find new latest gen GPUs in bundle deals now for about 20-30% over MSRP. Not great, but better than its has been. It's probably still going to be quite a while until you can buy a latest gen GPU by itself for MSRP.

Yet not having a time machine has still not been resolved... I think it's due to the chip shortage... right?!

Except why would I as a buyer trust YOU as a stranger to believe the card works. That's the issue with selling used electronics without being able to test it. All the risk is on the buyer.

I've been burned 1 time that I didn't test it as I was in a hurry and guy assured me it worked. Ended up with a dead machine that had suffered undisclosed water damage. The pics and video the guy sent me showing it worked were obviously not legit.

NEVER.
AGAIN.

If I can't test or see such an item function properly, I'm moving on to the next seller who can probixee that peace of mind.

You do you

As a seller, there's also no way for me to know once the item has left my possession that you didn't do something to DOA it. So it goes both ways.

Caveat emptor or so the saying goes when buying used anything

Like I said, they fought over it, I priced it at $200 when I saw others for $300, they bid their way to $300. You don't have to buy it if you don't want to pay the price.. these are older cards and not scalper pricing. Scalping is buying new stuff that gets sold out and profiting. This was used, and people bought it for $300

I made a video with my phone, showing it installed in my system, and I ran a couple of benchmarks to show the card works. The dude didn't even want to see the video, lol.. just took the card, gave the cash and left.

the 1050 Ti is better than both of those cards, or close to them, thats probably why. The 1050 Ti is near silent, uses very little power, produces very little heat, and best of all.. it runs off the motherboard pci power, doesnt need a strong PSU or its own pins (this is a big thing for people with tight budgets and/or needing tiny systems)

I have an EVGA GTX 1050 that I bought for $150 5 years ago. What can I put it on Kijiji for?
