So Ima go with "Yes?"

Why? That system's not worth $1400 in addition to the retail price of the card. I'd argue that a 3080ti isn't even worth the $1200 it retails for in the first place, much less scalper prices.

I know cards are hard to get, but people actually paying these stupid prices to get a hold of one has only made the problem worse. Just because you can point to Newegg scalping that card for the same price as the system doesn't mean either is actually worth what they're gouging people for, or that people should be paying it. Neither of those prices are good deals.
Of course they aren't "good deals." But that's the point. There are no good deals due to shortages. Show me where there are 3080tis available at $1200.

As for the value of the rest of the machine:
case - $100
i7-11700KF - $380
1TB NVME SSD - $100
16 GB DDR4 - $80
Motherboard - $200
Kbd/Mouse - $40
Liquid cooling - $100
-------------------------------------------------------
That's a cool $1000.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.
