Zalavaarisso... i can't preorder and stock is crazy... if I don't mind waiting could I just buy a 2080 now and immediately day 1 do the step up to the card i want and just wait for it to come in? Seems like a good way to basically get a preorder and still have a card to use.
ZalavaarisI'd be perfectly happy with the 3080 ftw3 actually. So is this a viable plan?
ZalavaarisSo I just got a 2080 super ftw3 from newegg for 770. So I should be able to step up to 3080 ftw3 and guarantee my upgrade at some point in the future. Feeling good if this works lol
ZalavaarisThat doesnt bother me at all. I just want a guarantee of getting exactly the card I want while also having a damn good card to game on as I currently dont have one at all. But this way I can buy the ftw3 block from ek when its out, buy custom cables, etc.
Malkuth74Its the only option for the step up.. But the process to step up is not a cake walk. Lots you have to do. But your guaranteed the card eventually. Right now the best bet was to order it off EVGA.. But everything is sold out. So now you have to buy it 3rd party, and wait for that card to come, and than get in the step up program, after you register the card.And it seems a lot of people already are in line for step up.. So could be awhile. I was going to just get a 2080 Super.. Off Newegg.. Go through the process.. etc... But than I figured you might get a card late october if your lucky.. And than you have that week you have to send the card back, and wait to get the New one... Decided take my chances and wait.
