I have been trying to get a GPU to complete my build. I currently have a RTX 1050 TI in my build and i would really like to upgrade to RTX 30 Series. I am looking for any kind of suggestion to get a GPU in this market. Appreciate all your replies.

    Man I've been waiting 8 months on the queue list for a 3080ftw3, 5 months for every other 3080,3090 model.I entered the Newegg shuffle after only the second time entering i got a EVGA 3070xc3 ultra but had to purchase a psu too because of combo shuffle.Blind Luck i guess but try the shuffle.

    I’m hoping that eth mining will become unprofitable at the end of 2021, like some people seem to think will happen, and the second hand market will be flooded with gpu’s. Until then? It’s tough.

    why would eth drop if they're making it harder to mine soon? If anything, it's going to increase in value, especially because they're switching from proof of work to proof of stake. I just don't see it happening unless people stop investing into crypto for whatever reason.

    I never said it would
     
    I just hope when eth ever moves to proof of stake (like they’ve been saying for years...) miners will sell their GPUs.

    3060 queue seems to be moving the best.  3060ti queue seems to be pretty slow lately.  Newegg shuffle today seemed to have a good amount of models.
     
    FWIW ive had the best luck with bestbuy drops, so if i were you i would find a discord/stock monitor place, get a bestbuy account setup and ready to go.  Normally drops have been every 2 weeks lately, so i would expect one next week if that stays true.

    I've tried every single best buy drop since I starting actively looking for a gpu in March and I haven't been able to buy anything. Plus I don't think best buy sells the card I'm looking for, namely the 80 ftw3 ultra. You got any tips for us aside from being set up prior? I've noticed they do regional drops but I don't know what to make of that information because every time I try to check out, all the stores within a 250 mile radius are sold out already.

    Keep trying.  Try both on app and on your computer.  The "please wait" queue seems to be independent between PC and APP, meaning you could be in queue on both devices on your same account at the same time.  Also i save any card i want to look at under "save for later", you can add to cart to get in the queue, and then do final add to cart, all from the main "cart" page that lists all your "save for later" items.  I mean you can also do it individually per product page, but that's harder to keep up with multiple cards in my opinion.  So for me, use app and desktop, and save all cards you want for later, and camp on the cart page.  You should NOT need to refresh, it should auto update when you can add to cart.

    Also obviously have CC saved/etc.  Always do txt instead of email for verification if that pops up.  Sometimes i will try to add any item to cart a few hours before i think there may be a drop which will trigger the verification to get that out of the way.
     
    Here is all past bestbuy drops, you can draw some conclusions based on t he history, outside of the last one which threw everyone off.

    ^Great advice for Best Buy up there. I've made GPU attempts on the last two drops and ended up with the same Gigabyte RTX 3060 both times ($479.99, somewhat overpriced but still made a couple friends happy!)
     
    Best Buy's queue system drives me absolutely crazy. I went through a phase getting lots of PS5s and I had a lot of success at Target, Walmart, etc., but never once got one from Best Buy. Kills me that they're one of the only reliable GPU sources right now.

    Only the second time in the shuffle?? That's some real insane luck. Congrats on the new card. Usually, those combo PSUs, aren't that great, and I heard the ones they bundled with Gigabyte GPUs literally blew up(ALLEGEDLY) so I'd be wary about using those.

    I'm on a waitlist for an EVGA GPU as well. :S I was hoping to purchase from PLE computers. Any other suggestions?

    Try Every website you can get get signed up for stock notification from a discord server. Best Buy is your best bet at the moment, every other website is botted and Newegg Shuffle is like impossible.

    Best buy drops are no longer viable. There seem to be bots that snatch those up within a few seconds.

    Not easing up yet. Not sure what's going to have to improve in the supply chain for things to normalize again, but most chipmakers are predicting a long wait for a while

    I've been trying to get a 30-series card since September and haven't had any luck.  I've been in the EVGA queue for several months with no movement at all.  These shortages are just part of the issue.  If these scalpers weren't a factor, the rest of us would probably be able to just get the ONE video card that we need.

    this simply isn't true. It is still more than possible to get a card on best buy. You're probably just going for the big boy cards and that's why you can't get any.

    When you say "Big boy cards", which ones are you referring to?  The 3090's and 3080's?

    It's getting ever so slightly worse every day. Maybe a slight relief in sight when the "lite hash rate" cards launch, hopefully they've been building up a stockpile of all SKUs.

    Let's just hope Nvidia doesn't "accidentally" release the cracked BIOS which unlocks the full potential for mining on those cards.

    This might be highly regional too but I live in a major metro. I got the telegram/discord notification last week and was on in seconds. All the cards were gone.

    I don't know what you mean by big boy cards, because I was trying to get a 3060ti or above. I don't see the point in spending so much for 1080ti performance for a 3060.

    Have you either recently or ever purchased anything from Newegg before you were selected for the Newegg Shuffle?  I've been seeing a lot of posts on a lot of forums that the majority of the "winners" either recently purchased or purchased high-dollar items from them in the past which increased their chances of being selected.

    How are you able to add items to your Best Buy cart if the 'Add To Cart' button says 'Sold Out' and is not clickable?

    A 5 month wait?  I don't understand why EVGA doesn't prioritize their queue 'orders' before providing inventory to retailers.

    I have no idea why Best Buy couldn't just give you the option to ship directly to your home address instead of having to ship to a store to pick it up.  Either way, it has to get shipped from a warehouse, so instead of shipping to a store, why not just ship it to a residence?

    Because contracts and agreements. EVGA can't just stop fulfilling orders because a million people are sitting in the queue.
