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
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.My Microcenter has a Asus Strix 3070 in stock. $629. LOL
I thought they cost $499.
Gosh Ampere is a huge fail.
They will. Whiney entitled people always pay.let's hope no one in their right mind will pay a $300-500 markup on a $500 card.
What the hell has happened that you can easily get a launch day console, but launch day GPU is insanely difficult!
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.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" ....
you are a better man than me. I hate people like that.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

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.I miss my old microcenter so bad right now. I love south Florida but mid mayfield heights Ohio for stuff like this
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.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.
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.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.
LoL... pay for a 3080... get a 3070 ... what a deal!
$699 canadian is $525 USD.LoL... pay for a 3080... get a 3070 ... what a deal!
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.
