I cannot find one at a reasonable price, used or new. Everything is at least $700, and generally over $1k. I have an order at shopBLT.com but it got pushed back three times now. Is there a huge shortage right now??

Yes. There's a general video card shortage. Just about everything decent sells out quickly unless the vendor prices it well over MSRP. How quickly depends on the card. Radeon 6xxx and RTX 3080s just go poof. 3090s are probably the easiest to get of the new cards due to the high price and margins starting to get too low to scalp them. Even decent budget models don't stick around though. I've seen GTX 1660s and 5600XTs available occasionally near MSRP on Newegg, but look again a bit later and they're gone. I'm not looking for a card right now (snagged a 3090 last month), but I've been kind of keeping an eye on the general situation just out of curiosity.

Do you have a microcenter near you? I've seen 5700xt's there fairly often, although I don't really remember seeing a nitro+. Most days I went they would have at least a few. The holidays was the only period where things got really bad and there would be nothing except for a gtx710. For the price that old video cards are selling at though, I think it's better just to buy a new one at MSRP if you can stand visiting multiple times in the mornings.

That's when there was just a general GPU shortage and not another crypto boom. My Microcenter has been sold out all week. 5700xt is one of the best bang for the buck mining cards right now.

I've also been looking for one of these as MSRP for awhile now. Does anyone have recommendations outside of what was already mentioned?

If anything, things have gotten worse since this post was made. I'm afraid you are out of luck.

You can check this thread for help finding cards on the current market https://hardforum.com/threads/how-to-acquire-a-new-generation-card-step-by-step-guide.2005468/ . Even then it took me weeks to score one 3080 and I just got lucky.

bummer - looks like both of those channels on discord only have stock notifications for 6 series AMD GPU's and not 5 series.

My local MC had an open-box Nitro+ for 400 just a week ago. Doesn't help you now, but there may be a few going through the channels, if you can keep an eye out for one.
