I have been waiting for 4090 cards to drop to make a purchase, but they just never do. Do they realize there are thousands of us nerds out here with our wallets open and there is nothing to buy.

Then you have to add the 10% tax on top of that
And the Nvidia Lets Rob the Australian Gamer TAX that seemed to Apply with Nvidia GPU

USA prices do not have tax on them that is added at sales counter and depends on state
Or so I have been told
AMD is so much cheaper in Australia for same GPU I can get a 6800XT or 6900XT cheaper in Australia than overseas
With tax it totals $1050 to buy from USA and have it shipped here and that is without postage, think about $100 for shipping from USA to Here

There are only 5 states in the US that don't apply sales tax, Delaware, Alaska, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon. They just get the money through other means, like higher property taxes and what not. It all evens out really.

Not really sure why AMD is so much cheaper there, maybe it just doesn't sell as good as Intel does there or something. I did hear AMD was releasing a new GPU next month, the 7900x I think, as far as performance and price though, its anybody guess from what I have heard. Just have to wait and see how it stacks up ageist the 4090. And what the price point is.

I live in the states, and here all the 4090 drops are selling out so fast you can't even get it in the cart before its gone. I was lucky enough to get a Suprim x air cooled in the cart last night on Newegg, and before I could complete the checkout it said sold-out lol. But, I guess its to be expected with such limited stock and retailing for around $1,600 here. Everybody is 4090 crazy right now because its the crème de la crème GPU on the market. Went to Micro center this morning as its close by, and 4080s everywhere, mountains of them, but there not selling at all from what the guy there told me. And from what I hear scalpers that bought 4080s are retuning them and getting their money back. lol.

Keep an eye on the store... Occasionally there *will* be something pop up.
Most recently, this was available (as of a few days ago)...

Sadly - it seems most of the 4090 current availability is ... still with scalpers, including those selling through Amazon and NewEgg.

That's what I don't get. The USA MSI store just never restocks. Or, as far as I have seen never had stock to begin with of 4090s. Been checking daily sense launch and its been nothing for months. Even my local Micro Center gets trucks in every week. Although the numbers are low and they sale quickly they still have them weekly. So what gives with the MSI store? Are delivery's coming in and going straight to scalpers out the back door?

No they just do not normally sell to end users at all. they may have a store but as you see they sell nothing so its more of a shell that they thought they may use in the future but never bothered to do so. also after last time with the 30xx series cards they stopped selling direct to end users anyway after they where blamed for helping scalpers get hold of cards so they cut off all GPU Deliveries then.

Wow, I didn't know that. And this being my first go around with the store itself. Good to know thanks.
