This is where I picked mine up from

Quite a lot sold out but they do still have some systems available, worth just doing a bit of research into the components of the build to check it is up to what you want it to do

How much did you pay for yours if don’t mind me asking? Does it run every game perfectly?

I got mine for £1089 I think it was (was meant to be £1289 but I got it when it was on a sale)

 

I have had no issues running games like GTA 5, Battlefront 2 and DOOM Eternal on high settings

Managed to snag myself an RTX 3080 yesterday. Now to wait for the LG 27GN950-B to come back into stock...

Christ, the card is absolutely massive.

They've got some fantastic heft to them.  You know GPUs are getting big when some come with anti-sag brackets.

Looking for a pretty standard build atm for both uni work and gaming but getting my hands on a GPU of any quality at a normal price is proving impossible. Ideally wanted a 3060 but seeming impossible, for now would settle for a 2060 or even 1660 super at a fair price. Any tips on getting hold of any stock at all?

Follow stock Twitter accounts or Discords.  I use https://discord.gg/e9phCKgBkA Discord for getting stock which is set up well to filter stuff you actually want.

MY MSI 3080 does, I couldn't believe my eyes when I compared it to my old 1080 which itself wasn't a small GPU. 34cm / 1,5 Kg.

 

While the performance gain is massive, the thing needs a nuclear plant . I'm drawing 350W at full performance, double of the 1080's.

I think it's really not the moment to get new GPU unless you're ready to overpay or you're really, really lucky and literally constantly monitor the online retailers. Set your retailers of choice to notify you as soon as cards are avalaible and jump on your phone or computer because the cards are sold out within 30 minutes tops.

 

Or buy a pre-build for which you'll also overpay. New cards are a generation leap in terms of performance, crypto-mining became a thing again, the pandemic is forcing everyone to stay home and Nvidia / AMD can't satisfy an exploding demand.

 

I've seen RTX 3090s going for almost 3,000 euros in Germany. The 3080 and 3060 / ti disappear instantly. Even the 2000 series and the 1660 prices are going up since Nvidia stopped to product them and the new ones are impossible to find.

 

The prices won't go down before 3-6 months and I'd suggest you to wait.

Sign up to part alert on Twitter and discord, it's how I got my 3070 for a good price.
