Only 200 of these graphics cards have been manufactured.

Honestly... Only one word I use to describe scalpers, begins with c, and rhymes with hunt.

Shame to the people paying that much but considering they were competition prizes I think Nvidia should have put in place a term where you cannot sell the GPU, meaning only people who would want one of those would able to enter.

They probably did, but since when has any one cared about that? I've bought most of my ES from Ebay lol.

Most of the people who win competitions are serial entrants any way, and sell their prizes.

Well, if you can afford it and really want it... That said, I'd never spend that much money on a graphics card, even if it is limited edition.

Yeah, it is a shame that so many of these cards went to people who don't appreciate them. That said, £5,000 is a lot of money.

I'm not sure how enforceable such a term is.

Well it's mostly been proven that limited edition hardware is never worth anything. Kinda like Fallout collectables.

Well.. perhaps its gone to someone who will frame it in a glass case and never use it? who are we to judge. If they have limitless cash then good for them.

I could understand if the game had come out and was as good as we've been told. Right now? it's vaporware. Bit risky. I mean, I felt proper stupid for paying £175 for FO76 lol.
