I genuinely would like to know why people are buying the GTX 280 TI at current price. Not saying that is a bad/good price, I am just curious about why people are willing to pay that price. Personally, I would never buy it for the obvious reasons but I feel like I'm missing out something. Are people making money using these cards? Are you mining some weird 1000th type of crypto currency? What exactly is going on?
Lots of people just like knowing their e-peen is the biggest no matter how much it costs or whether it is actually needed. They just ask what's the best they can buy and then buy it. The vast majority of users buying the 3900x and the 2080ti will never come close to fully utilizing those components but they feel good knowing they can.

I know their warranty. How is the actual service though? Because you can have a 10 year warranty and if you have to pay shipping to China to get it serviced and wait a month, it's much better to just go EVGA and pay more.
I had a Zotac card that would produce artifacts, they had me pay shipping to have it looked at. Then told me they didn't find anything wrong with it. I haven't bought a zotac card since.

I get excited whenever my 2080 Ti alert is triggered but I always end up disappointed. It's sad that this card is almost a year old, but $1050 is still considered a "deal". No offense to OP; this is a fine price if it's what you need, but MSRP is just so overpriced. I usually splurge on the best GPUs, but I still can't justify upgrading my 2-year old $650 1080 Ti for a ~20% performance increase with an 80% price increase... it's insane. Nvidia is just price-gouging the top tier gaming cards because they have no competition (help me AMD!)

Also from my experience, Zotac service is horrible; I've done RMAs with all the main vendors and only Zotac stands out as someone I will never purchase from again... ignored emails and given the run-around for weeks. They're also the only company to completely stiff me on a mail-in-rebate (basically told me to f* off after I inquired), and I've done hundreds. Their video cards are the cheapest and have the shortest warranties for a reason.
Couldn't agree more. Well said!

Thank you, I am glad to see that my intuition about Zotac was on target.

I also agree with you about the flagships. The crypto boom gave NVIDIA and AMD a taste of charging a HEFTY premium and we will now see these inflated prices until people stop buying them. I was going to upgrade my 780 Ti to a 1080 Ti and then crypto hit, driving the prices way out of my range, then the Turing rumors started and I decided to wait and now I'm probably just going to stick with my trusty 780 Ti SC ACX until next year. It still does 1080p and even quite a bit of 1440p very well, I'm just wanting to get an HDR-capable card for my X900F TV. The current prices are just crazy though. I paid $730 for my 780 Ti and swore I would never pay more for a flagship GPU so these prices are absolutely killing my interest in PC gaming.

How is Zotac with warranty service? The only component I have had fail in my 24 years building computers is video cards and I usually stick with EVGA because of their excellent service but $1050 for a 2080 Ti is tempting and it would go on my Cash Magnet so I would have AMEX's extended warranty.
My experience: once Zotac, never again. Sent them faulty device after 2 months of emails and videos showing them the problem They sent it back to me, claiming no issues fouud, and notified me after the fact.

Plus most credit cards will add a year or two the original warranty.
Not anymore. Very few cards actually have extended warranty benefits now that MasterCard programs have been revamped right and left. If you have an Amex, you're good, but anything else is a crapshoot.

Yeah, I don't see the economic justification in price premium versus the improvement gains from the 2080ti versus going down to a say 2070 super (absent, of course, a truly slick deal). But then again I also get confused by the people who "need" to upgrade their cell phones every 12 months to the newest model too so maybe it's just me.

EDIT:
For example, on the price premium for the 2080ti, just last weekend, Dell was selling the new Alienware R8 system (https://slickdeals.net/f/13301707-alienware-aurora-r8-desktop-i7-9700-liquid-cooling-rtx-2070-super-oc-16g-ddr4-1tb-nvme-ssd-200-visa-gc-1411?src=SiteSearch) that included as a component a 2070 super GPU, and the entire system was $1411 - $200 = $1211. And it was like $180 more to add a 2080 super.

Yikes! Yeah I would not buy a GPU from them either.

I have had two EVGA cards fail... my 7900GT and my 8800GTS and EVGA replaced the first with a 7950GT with advanced exchange (all the 79xx cards were failure prone at the time) and they replaced my 8800GTS with a week of turnaround.

If the Big Navi doesn't drop the price of Nvidia's top card then $1k will be the new $700 forever. Intel is entering the GPU race but they are price gougers themselves, so can't rely on them to bring the prices down to whatever they were before people made imaginary money.

It's a great CUDA card for scientific computing purposes. My university uses 1080 Ti cards on our supercluster.

Some people just want the best and are willing to pay for it, even if the price/performance ratio is horrible. I liken it to a Lamborghini vs. a Corvette; slight performance increase for ridiculously more money... and bragging rights.

But in all fairness, high-end GPUs have a very high resale value lately, so whenever the next best thing comes out, you're probably not losing much if you're able to sell it. A used 1080 Ti can easily sell on eBay for ~75% of its MSRP from over 2 years ago which is pretty crazy.

I've never owned a Zotac but they have far more refurbished sales on their cards than I've seen any company have for any product, so I dunno man. I'd stick with EVGA.

What I cannot understand is how this deal has higher score than the MSI 2080 ti Seahawk x @ $1020. That's a hybrid card for goodness sake.

And it was like $180 more to add a 2080 super.
I understand your reasoning and I'm technically on the same boat because I have not upgraded to a 2080Ti (yet) and I don't think this is a good price, but to play devil's advocate... there's so much more involved than simple price/performance; even your coveted 2070 Super is far less cost-efficient in terms of FPS per dollar than something like an RX570. Everything gets less cost-efficient as you get to the higher tiers, so why did you pick the 2070 Super? And there's the fact that some games can be basically unplayable at high resolutions/settings with certain cards. Yes technically I could play Assasin's Creed Oddysey with a 2070 at 4K <30 FPS , but to me, that's a miserable experience. Having something like a 2080 Ti, even if it costs ridiculously more relative to performance, if it transforms my gaming experience from barely playable to enjoyable, that extra price premium is well justified.
