If you guys think that some of the Newegg bundles are bad go check out Microcenter they are advertising a 6900 XT for the amazing price of $2499.99! My local MC had a base line 6900XT last week on the shelf for $1799.99.
Yea and they are not selling very fast but they are selling. MC pricing is pretty much msrp for the cards they sell still. Current gen anyway.

Never mind that MSRP is $999.99 on the 6900XT reference card.

Damn, dell outlet delivers. Got my Alienware r10 system today. Ordered it Monday and already here. I believe this is. New unit that was never even used. Still has all the original plastic on the entire case. The other 2 I got didn’t. $2200 for this with these specs was a killer deal
5800x with the aio
64gb (2x32gb) ddr4 3400
Rtx 3080
2tb nvme
1k power supply.

Edit: I've been waiting for the add to cart to turn back yellow for 8 minutes now, I'm guessing I'm not going to get anything. classic

Edit 2:
Error
This item is currently unavailable for online purchase. The item was not added to your cart.

Sigh. why did I even bother

Bb out instantly it seems. What a joke lol. Bots have the site owned now bypassing queue everytime. Not sure why Best Buy thinks changing the day somehow will make it better? Lol

I was in the app before the notifications and still got nothing. Add to cart, to waiting, to sold out. BestBuy is a waste of time thanks to bots unless you get super lucky.

yeah, BB drops are dead unless they fix the bot issue. I'm canceling my snailbot patreon Friday before it re-ups. I was able to snag a 3080 easily a couple months ago. Nothing since.

5900x is up right now. This is how I got my 5950x last time around. 6700XT is giving me the run around with the cart button.

Edit: 6700XT now OOS.

any time these companies' leaders step on stage and say something similar to "We care about gamers" in my head, I just replace any instance of "gamers" with "shareholders"

What's wrong with that? These companies don't exist to make gamers happy. They exist to make money for shareholders.

The only reason they say anything is to try to appease the consumer so they will buy their product instead of the competition. It's just marketing.

i didn't say anything was wrong with that. The fact that amd.com is still bot ravaged despite AMD knowing of it, just reaffirms my brain's regex.

My buddy runs a bot and he says this go around (today's drop) was bot broken on whatever he runs. Bots couldn't check out. He's thinking there was just very limited stock.

Was able to score a 6800 from amd today. Super happy. Been trying to get one since November. Got lucky and got through the captchas the first time.
I'd love to get my hands on a 6800XT or better yet a 6900XT either will be a hell of an upgrade from my 1080TI.

I wanted a 6800XT but none dropped today. So I settled for a 6800. Coming from a vanilla 1080. Gonna be great. Especially since I have freesync monitors that I haven't been able to turn on the feature cuz the 1080 can't handle it.

Sadly AMD's site is bot infested you'd have to be so unbelievably lucky to have a chance.
AMD actually isn't botted anymore since about April 1 - the bot dudes in various Discords still complain about AMD being bot-proof.

The issue is that alert aggregation is at a point where so many tens of thousands of people instantly know when anything is dropping anywhere, that the number of humans you're competing with - and the volume of traffic generated by that human activity against a website - becomes indistinguishable from bots.

Damn I thought Dell was doing quicker turn-around times than the other Pre-Builders
Strong possibility that it will be shipped several weeks earlier than stated. Mine took a week to build with a 6800xt when the estimated time was about 4 weeks. Demand might be higher for the rtx 3080.

I really hate these Alienware cases. These could be awesome systems with a few minor tweaks.

I dont exactly hate the appearance from the outside, but he internal layout and cooling doesnt optimal.
My preorder from Ibuypower wont be the best case either, but I can always swap cases

Tell your friend to bot a 3070 or 3080 for me and sell one to me.
