If it were me I'd actually email the sales manager and ask if he's aware of the site and his email being used. Because nothing on that site is conclusively legit, or outside the realm of the various pop-up scams I've seen before.HK, which matches the email for the sales manager.
That's a much better sign. My guess is some smalltime guy in Illinois asked Galax about "distributing" in the U.S., went and rented a UPS store mailbox. But he's just working out of his house and trying to get GPU's.Ok so did some digging, the main galax site has a US link again:
and that leads straight to the site above (where it keeps my logged in credentials and shows my order as processing). Think we're good regardless of whether the card comes soon or not. Plus I'm not gonna worry about something covered by PP and Chase worst case.
Agreed and never ever use a debit card or bank transfers for purchases on any site, even if trusted, protection never hurts.That's a much better sign. My guess is some smalltime guy in Illinois asked Galax about "distributing" in the U.S., went and rented a UPS store mailbox. But he's just working out of his house and trying to get GPU's.
In general though its good to approach with caution new websites suddenly selling GPU's.
Oof, looks shady as hell. Address is a rented UPS Store mailbox in an Arby's parking lot. Domain was registered only 67 days ago. I don't have time to dig deeper but proceed with caution. There are a lot of pop-up GPU sites that are scams.
Well my card shipped and will be here on Monday, CS also responded to my queries on time so even if they are shipping out of a hole in the wall, no alarm bells are ringing here.The Galax USA FB page links to galaxstore.net, as does their official steam group (which was founded in 2015). Whois shows the domain was registered 9-23-2014. I'm not seeing anything abnormal there.
The address being a UPS store is a little weird. Last time I was through there, there were vacant buildings in that plaza. I'm not expecting to find anything, but I'm going to swing through that plaza next time I'm in the area and see if anything stands out.
Nice. The site was initially reminding me of some fly-by-night sites I've seen posted or discussed in discord channels last few months, but in those cases the prices were usually too stupidly low to even make sense yet they'd still get people falling for it. Or nonsense like "$79 electric bikes" and they only take crypto, and people will still have to ask "is this a scam!?".Well my card shipped and will be here on Monday, CS also responded to my queries on time so even if they are shipping out of a hole in the wall, no alarm bells are ringing here.
I do like the clip on fan, lol. But be nice to have a Galax in the collection.Well fwiw it's just an ok deal, not sure if mining will be worth it with it being LHR, may put it up here for cost. Good thing is they do have a 15 day return for refund worst case and a 2 year warranty on the card, not the best but definitely a legit operation.
I remember plenty of times Intel couldn't keep up with demand on higher end parts.Best 12900K intro price I've seen so far, $619.99 BestBuy
Extremely unlikely we see scalping or crazy ebay prices on 12900k/12700k series because Intel does not mess around when it comes to flooding the supply.
People tried to scalpe the 11xxx CPUs and got nothing out of it. I wouldn't worry too much with scalping on these. Other then the initial batch I believe they will be common.I remember plenty of times Intel couldn't keep up with demand on higher end parts.
If anything keeps these on the shelves it'll be a lack of demand.
Isn’t that only for PS5’s and Series X?Without the queue extensions working , people like me in major metropolitan areas are SOL again. Am definitely going to cancel my total tech trial before the 60 days are up, nothing today was exclusive to TT members who wtf is the $200 for?
Fun possible-fact that's probably even unethical and nobody should do it because if Tim Bestbuy finds he would probably shoot your ass: if you change your birthday on BB you may just end up with another Bday coupon without having to wait a full year. I haven't done it personally, but have seen it discussed with claims it worked.I scored an EVGA 3080 ti FTW3 in todays best buy drop, was able to apply my birthday coupon for a shipped price of $1305.
My birthday is october 21st so i fail to see what point you are trying to make here. They sent me a coupon, i used it in accordance with their policies.Fun possible-fact that's probably even unethical and nobody should do it because if Tim Bestbuy finds he would probably shoot your ass: if you change your birthday on BB you may just end up with another Bday coupon without having to wait a full year.

Obligatory "This is why we can't have nice things" - in advance!
is tied to email addresses, click to checkout to see if it allows you to use it..
you can use it on basically anything if you get rid of free gifts or free addons..
i cant use it, guess NE doesnt want another 3 grand..
mnewxcvI sent a message to the owner of the random EVGA Associate Code I've been using letting him know he probably has $500+ in EVGA Bucks waiting for him lol.
He hasn't posted anywhere in years so I hope he's still around.
If anyone here has a code and wants me to use it please PM. I'd rather the money go to someone here.
Thanks a lot for the mention. If anyone wants to use my associate code I really appreciate it. I try to post evga deals when I see them and share my strategies to get cards when I see (see my step up thread or psu deals)
