It would matter to folks IF you could actually buy the products. At this point in time that doesn't seem to be the case, so they don't really care what the advertised price is.

No. 

The prices, and lack of availability of CPU and GPU is ridiciulously bad.

I think Consumer PC Component suppliers will go bankrupt if this keeps up.

It is! But I think its pretty normal at this time. Increase in TSMC prices (maybe, idk), exports, tarifs, local taxes, etc..

In a normal situation it wouldn't bother me too much because the GPU would come out at that (MSRP) and 6 months later its price would start dropping seriously, 1 year and it would be slashed in half or even less.

I do regret that last August I saw brand new ROG Strix 5700XT at 300-350€ in Portugal and now you can't even buy one for less than 900€ USED!!!

If it really delivers above 3070 like 5700XT did above 2070 then it looks a goto GPU for the "uppermidrangers".

You had a lucky escape not buying  ASUS ROG Strix 5700XT.

The coolers fall off because the wrong screws and torque was used on those cards. 
ASUS have not done a good job on AMD AIB cards since Vega64/56. 

Not sure about the Paper Launch RX6000 series.

The RX5700XT are pretty lame GPUs. 
I own some now and they perform ~ same as / worse than RX Vega 64 Liquid for 2K/4K gaming and are poor at Compute/Blender. 
You should just skip RX5700XT series.

I've seen in the RoG forums the mess on the 5700XT. Pretty lame QC for a top brand. But even though, I know someone who has one without the "flaw" and its a good performer card, that's why I was after it.

ASUS weak spot is sotware.. i wonder why......  😛

I also have the RoG Strix RX480 and no complaints so far, even goes past 1400mhz but I'm done OC'ing until the GPU Market Drama ends, I don't have nothing else if this one breaks down.

Its crazy out there on the used market, 420€ on a RX480???? I payed less than that back in 2017.

Well, lets hope the market reach stability soon. I need a new GPU.

Asus RX5700XT Strix cooling problems:

They released a new round of 5700XT with fix but the problem is they did not recall all of the original ones so there is still a chance you could buy one new or end up with a used card with the problem.

The PCB construction and components on ASUS ROG Graphics cards is usually excellent. 
They seem to have Quality Control problems w.r.t. thermal pads on VRMs, VRAM and cooler since launch of AMD VEGA GPUs.

@colesdav, true but I called them with card green screening and having weirdly high temps on VRAM. They sent DHL to take card from me and I received new one within a week.

Glad to hear you had a good "RMA experience".

It's going to depend on how the card performs. When looking at the available data, with the card being in Rtx 3070 territory I think it's not that bad. AMD was cheaper when it was not really trading blows with Nvidia.

It also depends on your location, Europe has it bad when it comes to GPU prices while US has to worry about tariffs now.

Anyway we'll have to see if there's enough stock first.
