I'm lost why would i spend 1k for this card? In about 1-2 months it's half the price of one that will cost the same or less i'd guess.

8k resolution LOL. I don't think so.

I seriously doubt you will see a new/open box or even used 3090 for that price in 1-2 months.

Open box in Houston store still $1529, do they price match with their other stores? I might get a couple if they do

edit: they marked down the open box to $1145 whicha is not bad imo

Be very wary with 3090's. I had to watercool mine. With the memory on the back of the card, it just doesn't get enough cooling. Like 105c hot. My understanding is the 3090ti has all of the memory on the front?? With a dual watercooling setup, front and back, it runs fine. I can't imagine mem chips running at 105c will last long. Compounding the issue is I didn't notice the tjct Temps until I used hw64, or a similar utility. The fans would ramp up to 100% when the gpu Temps were still quite cool.

This was my experience too, got a refurbished one from EVGA and returned because of this exact same issue. Get the EVGA water cooler with a OpenBox, refurbished and this will be an excellent deal.

I believe this is all 3090 cards. I bought the Asus strix, mem chips on back of card just don't get cooled. Another issue is almost all water cooling setups have the block only on the front. I found a bykski that had to waterblocks, one front one back, that connect together. A lot of work to cool the mem chips on the back. The 3090ti has from what I've seen, all of the memory on the front, or gpu side. With the 4th of July deals EVGA has going on I'd go for the 3080ti instead. Unless you really need 24 gigs of memory, then get the 3090ti.

I've had this card running great since December 2020 (nabbed one for MSRP). Not sure why so many are open box. Maybe people returning and rebuying since the price dips? My only complaint is this thing keeps the room toasty and loud when I am playing AAA games maxed out.
