Looks like Newegg Canada has the Asus basic model in stock. I can add to cart and it has a price in cart, but I don't need one.

Kansas City store still has cards for those of you near, FE's, EVGA and Gigabytes.

Lot of guys are getting the EVGA's for the stepup program

It's a 4 hour drive, I thought of driving up in the morning tomorrow, in hopes of a 3080, or a 3070. Doubt they will have any.

My Microcenter has a Asus Strix 3070 in stock. $629. LOL
I thought they cost $499.

Gosh Ampere is a huge fail.

yeah, over $100 more than FE is just bullshit on a $500 card. I'm pissed that the EVGA step up program is the same way, in that if I want to step my 2060 up to a 3070, I have to get the $610 FTW Ultra. Nonsense, I'll just sell the 2060 and buy a cheaper 3070 if I want, or wait and see if a 3060 comes out.

What the hell has happened that you can easily get a launch day console, but launch day GPU is insanely difficult!

let's hope no one in their right mind will pay a $300-500 markup on a $500 card.
They will. Whiney entitled people always pay.

Except its not launch day for all the cards and hasn't been for a over a month now....and they are still hard to get. Freaken tickle me Elmo cards...

You look at Ebay and you see all those microcenter cards being scalped. People suck
Yep, read through this thread. Those who are close to MC stores going every day, getting multiple 3080s for the past few weeks. I am sure they just have "multiple PCs" ....

I’m at Best Buy now and only 8 people here. See if they got stock or not since it won’t let me ship it to my house

Greed is a terrible thing... I have 2 3080's one for my wife and one for myself. I have two more pc's for my nephews that are getting 6800's,I could have gotten more 3080's to sell but that's just not the spirit in how I do this hobby and my nephews know that this is about having fun when they make it about hurting someone else I won't include them. Taking advantage of mentally weak people isn't something I approve of.

Best Buy didn’t get a single card in. The guy working that I talked to was a complete dick about the situation. I said it was in stock online but it won’t ship to my house when I go to check out. He said well what do you want me to do about it all snarky.
I walked away before I said something stupid

I feel bad for people who sold off their 20 series cards for cheap thinking that they would walk into a 3000 series card. I go lucky in the fact that I sold my 2080ti months ago, and picked up a 5700xt as a hold over.

I would've told him I expected him to take a card and do something anatomically incorrect with it. He probably wouldn't have understood.

I just realized, I have auto notify at all these places that came in stock....and not a single fucking email came to me.

The more you buy, the more you save. Folks... it's that simple. The more you buy the more you save. It just works.

I'm afraid we will see the same next week with Ryzen 5000 and later this month with RX6000 :(
I just want to finish my build. I mean I still rock my 1080ti and it still runs pretty good, but since I'm living alone and work from home since March, I just wanted to get my hands on some new hardware and rebuild my PC.

They didn't even bother selling any FE in Europe AFAIK, lol.

I could have bought a 3070 priced as high as a 3080 FE, of course (well, I could have tried). But even those disappeared quickly.

South Florida was good when CompUSA and TigerDirect had retail stores. Where I live now I would've had TD within a 1 minute drive. A high school friend is the store Manager at Best Buy down the street but nothing in store since Ampere launch.

It does suck, but remember that this too shall pass and will pass sooner rather than later. nVidia and AMD will keep cranking out products, they'll be available eventually. Don't worry about the scalpers, they don't have infinite money and it won't be long before they just can't keep buying and flipping cards because there are too many out there and not enough people willing to buy at over MSRP.

A month or two can seem like a long time but it really isn't, and that is all it'll take for this to shake out in all likelihood.

Wanted to update this tread. Overland Park Microcenter has about 30 - 35 people in line as of 630am. Manager came out and told the crowd they have 100+ RTX 3070's in-stock and for sale.
Microcenter... the one place where it is possible to beat the bots because the bots are not welcomed, as these are in store only, just Microcenters are almost as few and far between as the total available 30 series cards that have been out there.

Meanwhile a place like Best Buy becomes one of the exclusive FE sellers of cards... and they go the exactly opposite direction with "Online only"

Seriously fuck all these stores and Nvidia, it feels like a South Park sketch. "Cards are out now... and they're gone"

LoL... pay for a 3080... get a 3070 ... what a deal! :D

My gtx 970 is working just fine, and if I really wanted an upgrade, I'm sure finding a 1080ti or 2070 super for way cheaper may be possible in the future. I just don't give a shit anymore.

Sooo....flood of 3000 series cards when?

I should get charged / shipping on my Xtreme sometime this week or next. No huge hurry with CP2077 being delayed again, though. I just hope Zen 3 isn't as much of a shitshow.
