Its been a very hard for the avrager perosn to get there hands on a Nivdia 30 series GPU. Giving My Best Buy Elite/Elite Plus memberse a timed window, lets say 5~8 hours to buy the stock before the general public could when new stock becomes avalible when be a novel way to: fend of scaplers, given more of an avrage working joe time to get a card, grab some postive prasie from the from the online communtiy.and help encorage shopping @ BBY to keep youre level up.

 

Can definitly say, Evga implamernting there queuing system has bought a lot of good sentiment to the company during this crazy release. 

 

Feels bad to miss the drop for the cards by 30 min~ and then turing around and see them imidelty relisted on eBay agian.... 

 

Would assuyme also there would be some limit 1 30 series card per houshold / account during this timned window and if you hand already oreded 1 you would no longer be eligable for hte timed window during hte next stock drop.

 It's been very hard for the average person to get their hands on a Nvidia 30 series GPU during release. Giving My Best Buy Elite/Elite Plus members a timed window, let's say 5~8 hours to buy the stock before the general public could when new stock becomes available when be a novel way to: fend of scalpers, given more of an average working joe time to get a card, grab some positive praise from the from the online community.and help encourage shopping @ BBY to keep your level up.

 

Can definitely say, Evga implementing their queuing system has brought a lot of good sentiment to the company during this crazy release. 

 

Feels bad to miss the drop for the cards by 30 min~ and then turn around and see them immediately relisted on eBay again.... They already had enough stock ... 

 

Would assume also there would be some limit, “1” 30 series card per household / account during this timed window and if you had already ordered one you would no longer be eligible for the timed window during the next stock drop.

As a high end computer gamer myself I can fully appreciate the desire to acquire the newer GPU cards.

 

However, when they come out they are well in advance of the media to which they support. the RTX 2000 series are still able to provide better than games can deliver. For now. 

 

Metro Exodus is one of the most demanding games of all time. That is one of the only games where you will see a significant improvement.  

 

But back to the Business Improvement suggestion. I think it would cause more angst amongst others. BB does a good job of keeping the Bots At Bay.  And many of those eBay sellers are good at what they are doing and are probalby Elite Members also.

I think the issue is that bot farms probably already have elite status due to the volume of purchases they make throughout the year. They probably make multiple purchases of 1800$ video cards and other highly sought items immediately after release.
