Be mindful of recent listings of in-demand products from suspicious third-party sellers on marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay, Google, Newegg, and Walmart. These "deals" have a high likelihood of not shipping; you should do your due diligence to ensure you do not get scammed.
* Use common sense - if the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.
* Check seller profiles for signs that the sale may be fraudulent.
* The seller is new or has few reviews.
* The seller has largely negative reviews (on Amazon, sellers can remove negative reviews from their ratings- viewing seller profiles allows you to see these complaints)
* The seller has a recently reactivated account (likely their account was hacked and is now being used fraudulently).
If you suspect a deal is fraudulent, please report the post. Moderators can take action based on these reports. We encourage leaving a comment to warn others.
Amazon and eBay generally have good buyer protection. If you choose to purchase from a third-party seller through their platforms and run into issues, it should be easy to get your money back promptly. You may have more difficulties with Newegg or Walmart.

Wait, is this a crazy deal??
6800xt with $200 GC is better if you can use the gift card
Wondering the same thing. Been waiting on a 3070 but now I’m contemplating this.
Worth it. I dont think there is any reason to go Nvidia unless you want nvenc or dlss. Dlss is only good at 4k tho
It's decent but some would argue that the 3070 ti for 599 at bestbuy is a better purchase.
Nobody is promoting the 3070Ti in any capacity lol.
I'd say no for 3070 Ti:
1. TechpowerUP have a [test](https://www.techpowerup.com/review/geforce-rtx-3070-ti-vs-radeon-rx-6800-megabench/2.html) 6700 XT vs 3070 Ti, 6700 XT have clear lead in DX12 and Vulkan titles.
2. Hardware unboxed [tested](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdBCB4Fm0RY&t=212s) 6700 XT w/ May preview driver. it's a huge boost in DX11 and DX 12 game.
W/ these driver improvement from AMD and potential preview driver merge with stable.
6700 XT will have a clear lead in performance(10%+) over 3070 Ti.
And the founder edition 3070 Ti especially sucks overheat and loudness.
Plus, free games and cheaper price from 6700 XT.
And if you are on Linux AMD is easy peasy.
Yeah and by easy peasy, /u/Echelon64 means works automatically out of the box without any drivers or config needed
Long time Linux user that just switched from a 1080ti to a 6950xt and it made me so happy.
AMD Gift - Radeon Raise the Game Bundle:
Sniper Elite® 5
Just to throw this out there, I got a 3080 FE coming Friday with the Face Your Demons Bundle. I’d much rather have the AMD bundle in case anyone may want to swap bundles or a few games (main want is Saints Row).
OOS. Pull think i was the last to buy. Moving from RX 580 ive had since 2020 and before that from a geforce 670 i had for 5 years
Thank OP, sorry guys who missed it
Crap. I'm currently running a 580 as well and had been holding out for a deal like this. I just missed it.
Ha, also, on a 580. Good news is I think there will still be more deals like this to come
Yes the deals are just starting! It took 18 months to get a $20 discount off msrp
