Hello I am so desperate at this point that I'm trying to pre-order on any websites I'm so tired of competing with Bots and crashing websites so I found CDW and I have never idea who they are if they're legit or if anyone had a good experience with them in the past waiting is not an issue for me I just need to get over with this because it's taking so much time everyday , first question is are they legit? Are they an authorized EVGA reseller , did anyone actually buy from them and register on EVGA , and finally has anyone actually bought something from them in the past please share your experience.

    Check here.  CDW is reputable; just not very public focused as they are more in the business sector.  Still a great company.

    CDW has been focused on ripping off corporations since the late 90's.  They don't really sell a lot of retail to end users anymore.

    I think as long as you're willing to wait a while, you'll eventually get your card. CDW seem to be among a group of retailers that are putting orders up with no stock, just hope of stock in the future.

    CDW is legit, been around for ages. As everyone said they're focused more on selling to small/medium businesses but they do consumer orders. The problem is CDW reportedly told another forum member that they are backordered until Thanksgiving-ish unless their suppliers increase shipments. So you can backorder but you may be waiting awhile yet for the order to fill. The post was somewhere in this 3000-series forum.

    I back-ordered with them. I talked to a guy there 5 days ago. Mid to late November at the earliest. I back-ordered on Sept 25.
     
    I told him as long as it arrives by 2023.

    CDW is legit but more involved in the enterprise end of things plus, I always felt they were overpriced.

    My experience with CDW has been pretty poor. I ordered a monitor arm ($300) a while back while it said it was in stock at the time. No word for about two weeks and then it goes into backordered and I get an email. Fine, whatever. It's not a hot item, they'll get more soon right? Wrong. Six more weeks go by without any update. I was just fed up at that point, asked them to cancel (which they're response sounded like they'd maybe cancel it) and decided I'd never try to buy anything from them again.

    Yeah, its trash....I wonder if this will be the new norm...... We never really had the shoe scalpers in the gaming market. But, they have all realized they are making a killing and they will be back. They run organized groups on various social media outlets and Discord, and yeah I get that most of this is caused by COVID but I think going forward it is going to suck more than ever trying to get the latest graphics card.

    From Reddit, order was placed on 9/21

    Here's some more conflicting information for everyone to digest :). Fingers crossed this is accurate.
     
    CS Rep: Thank you for contacting CDW Customer Relations Chat! My name is xxx, how can I help you today?
     2:21:52 PM : 📷Me: Hi
     2:22:02 PM : 📷Me: I wanted to check in on my most recent order
     2:22:18 PM : 📷Me: I got an email with an expected ship date of 10/2 but in my account center I don't see that information
     2:22:25 PM : 📷CS Rep: What is your order number?
     2:22:27 PM : 📷Me: Just wanted to see if I could get some clarification
     2:22:32 PM : 📷Me: order number
     2:23:34 PM : 📷CS Rep: Estimated ship date reflects for 10/12
     2:24:06 PM : 📷Me: Thank you
     2:24:41 PM : 📷CS Rep: You're welcome. Please contact us if you need any further assistance.
     2:24:47 PM : 📷Me: What time would you suggest I follow up to see if that is still the expected date? I have an employee waiting for this card so a bit anxious right now
     2:25:14 PM : 📷Me: I recommend following up by end of next week.
     2:25:33 PM : 📷Me: Great
     2:25:37 PM : 📷Me: Thanks xxx, appreciate it

    I can see that Valhalla. I ordered mine 4 days after yours. I am sure they had a lot of orders between yours and mine. 1 1/2 months sounds right. Good luck! Hope it is true.

    I've seen their orders take a very long time to fill, dont be surprised if you wait weeks to get the order filled. I would order with them but I am kinda waiting on a 3090 with a waterblock on it which they don't have and may not have until the 3090 Hydro Copper comes out.

    Not really sure what the point of a 3090 with water block is other than to just say you have one.   As  neither one gets much in gaines past the 2000 mark which you can easily hit on air.

    Maybe he will be benching on liquid or gaming @ max settings in 4K @ 120/144hz. 
     
    Also, a WB GPU isn't as high demand as the air cooler versions are since not everyone runs on liquid and it doesn't necessarily sell faster than air.
     
    At the end of the day, to each their own.

    I have a 9/21 order, seems the latest expectation is 10/12 but nothing is guaranteed until the distributor ships. Meanwhile I have had multiple newegg orders for the ftw3 voided. Had my hopes up for evga store but seems like that issue will not be solved.

    The various institutions I've worked with over the years have spent millions with CDW. They are completely reputable. Although my experience with them is specifically for business purchases both through CDW and CDW-G for government and state purchases.

    You probably will get the card but keep in mind you are buying pretty much a pre-order that could take a long time to fill. The company is reliable but they could always cancel the order. 

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    I preordered the PNY 3080 on 9/22 and recently got an email that its estimated ship date is 10/07. I would really prefer an EVGA 3080 FTW3 so I'm conflicted about canceling the order and waiting for an EVGA or letting it ride.
