I'm sorry, but I have to rage in full 3D about the trump levels of price gouging surrounding Vega's release.


AMD is forcing highend Vega vidcard buyers to buy a 'bundle' at a $100 premium with included $200 discount vouchers for a certain monitor + mobo/cpu. Newegg responds by raising the price of the monitor by $200. that identical monitor was $699 preorder, then went briefly on sale for $575, all within the last couple months, now it's $900.


I am freaking livid about this. I'm being punished by both AMD and it's partners for being a launch buyer of Ryzen, and for wanting to get a launch Vega. You screwed up, AMD. I'm not buying *any* Vega at launch.
