so... 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.

    I mean you could but than again, you get a limited selection on the upgrades but last I heard, they were giving the option for a 3080 FTW3 so who knows.

    I'd be perfectly happy with the 3080 ftw3 actually. So is this a viable plan?

    Honestly a 3080 and new 5950x may give me better performance than my 3950x and a 3090. So win win for me.

     Yeah, that's very viable but make sure to get a 2080 card that's cheaper than the 3080 FTW3 so you don't accidentally overpay.

    Checking what is being said here, the FTW3 might be the only option currently but don't know how long the que is for one.  Make sure it will fit in your case as these guys are customized PCBs.

    So 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

    You have 90 days.  Just make sure the purchase from Newegg was Sold By Newegg and not some 3rd party seller.  Once you get the GPU, register it to your EVGA account and start the step up process immediately to get into the que.

    Its 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.

    That 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.

    Just make sure it's a authorized reseller and not a 3rd party you're purchasing from otherwise the step up won't work from an unauthorized reseller.

    On a side note, the Step Up FTW3's should start fullfilling very soon per Jacob.  Hope the wait for everyone is short.

    If you buy a new gpu from an authorized seller within 90 days you can do the step up and pay the difference and get the upgraded card.

    Should be fine to enter the queue. If you did not register within 14 days of purchase, you will need to buy the extended warranty. You can do this under Member --> My Products --> View Details and you should see the extended warranty option. Once purchased, go back to that page and scroll down. Just make sure to have a valid invoice of purchase uploaded under Service.

    Thats because the 3090 isn't available until Thursday. The only one that qualifies is the 3080 ftw3. Does that one say its eligible?

    There's no guarantee the 3090 will show up, but keep checking before your 90 days are up.  I say step up to the 3080 ftw on the last day or two if the 3090 doesn't show up so you still get a new card with very little cost.
