Holy 200 miles. I guess I'll take some conference calls on the road I guess.

(I'm assuming you can actually change pick-up location later?)

200 miles is a 7-8 hour round trip. It's not that bad. I travel that regularly for various events around my state.

getting ready for BB Drop tomorrow. I am going to have my all the windows open as I can, my laptop, tablet, smartphone. F this shit lol. Coming up on 2 weeks. Unless they switch it to next friday but I think they will keep it this tuesday again for this week atleast since they dropped PS5 last friday.
Pretty sure Best Buy won’t be dropping tomorrow in favor of dropping on Thursday for the RTX 3060 release. They’ve done the same for past weeks that had new GPU releases so wouldn’t surprise me if they did it again this week. But worth still checking tomorrow.

I highly doubt it. 3060 is not really a major release and they have inventory drops on Tuesdays. I doubt they slow down those sales for 3060 launch for Thursday. It just allows them to separate traffic on different days. They seem to have separated the PS5 from GPU and CPU drops already. It used to drop with all tech drops before. If they don't do tomorrow it will likely be Friday they went back to, to trick us lol. But given they dropped PS5 last friday looks like GPUs will be again this tuesday. Now you could be right but I don't see them holding off sales for 3060 launch.

They did it for the 6900XT launch, 3070 launch and 3060 Ti launch. Hasn’t been a release since then to say it won’t happen again. They drop all their GPUs at once so I don’t see them dropping tomorrow and then again on Thursday. Not like 2 days later is a slow down for sales considering it’s 2-2.5 weeks between drops anyway. But who knows, just watch tomorrow anyway to be safe.

BB drop is online only, or in store too?
I called BB yday and they said no drop coming.

Are they dropping a certain card or multiple?

Online only. They ship to store for some cards, but no cards go to the brick and mortar stores otherwise.

It’s unlikely whoever you called knows about the drops or if they do they’re probably told not to say when they will be to prevent botters/scalpers.

Lately they’ve been dropping around 11:30 AM EST on Tuesdays and Fridays. But I would keep an eye out from at least 10 AM EST to 12 PM EST. If it doesn’t drop tomorrow, it’ll likely be on Thursday.

They have so many cards listed that I dont know how Ill see it in time. Is there a trick to it, like watch or like all the cards?

Open all the ones you would want to buy in separate windows. When it goes live they drop ALL their cards at one. Click add to cart for all of them and then wait for the button to turn back yellow and go through checkout for whichever one pops first. I’d recommend using a Discord to setup alerts to find out when the drop goes live.

That’s the one I use.

Alternatively, or in addition to what exlink states, click the little 'Save' flag under the Out of Stock button for each item that you would buy. Then go to your cart and refresh like mad from ~10AM to 12PM (each item is listed in Your Saved Items within the cart). Once 'Add to Cart' shows up on the item(s), right click open in new tab for each item, click 'Add to Cart', wait the prerequisite time for the yellow button to show up, all the while flipping between those tabs that you opened. Keep also refreshing cart to see new items in stock. For me, much less cumbersome than flipping extra tabs on products that may not be stocked.

Log in and check the 'Keep me Signed In' box. Make sure you have your phone handy or email client open for the verification step during purchase.

Hint, clear anything else out of your cart that you aren't buying right now. Best to just check out with the GPU. Good Luck.

6800XT merc model was for sale on Amazon for 4 minutes from 9:55 to 9:58/9. Thought about it and passed @ 1050 or some nonsense.

That was actually a nice system for the price!
If I didnt already buy parts to build a system I would have been all over that.
5800x coming tomorrow rx 6800 came today 32gb 3600mhz ram coming eventually.
But I havent decided if Im keeping the 6800 or not. I cant afford it...

I got an email from Nvidia about the 3600 availability tomorrow.
Not sure if they are selling them directly tomorrow or what?

so you're saying there will be a BB drop today?
(Probably) No one here knows for sure. There won't be a 3060 founders edition so BB really has nothing specifically to do with the 3060 launch.

Given the things we know, though, today is one of the days that seems likely to have a drop.

Does anyone here really want a 3060?
I’d get one/more for mining, if they hadn’t gimped it, but for gaming? No thanks. Probably fairly equivalent to your 1080 or 1080ti that’s coming up on 4 years old.
