I pretty much stopped actively looking for stocked cards to show up. Maybe in the next week or two I'll try again, but there are probably better odds winning the lottery than getting a card right now.


If you are just shopping you are not going to get one for a bit. All the drops are still going pretty fast. Some of that has to with the fact that etailers are sometimes only trickling out card in multiple micro drops. Makes no since to me.

I still check randomly maybe twice a day. But Im not desperate enough to buy from a scalper, there is not really anything new to play at the moment anyways. I suspect we may get desperate in November when Cyberpunk drops

I'll probably give up for awhile after next week if EVGA doesn't bring up their purchasing website with another Elite sale by then. 
 

 
I agree. I think the Elite sale is the way to go to prevent some of the bots snatching up all the inventory.


What's an "Elite sale"?

It was a sale for anyone who registered certain EVGA products or have a certain number of forum posts and signed up for the "elite" program.
 
I scored a 3090 FE during the Thursday Nvidia store drop so I'm not concerned about it any longer but if you can join I'd suggest it as there was a real, albeit slim, chance during the elite sale a couple of weeks ago to beat the bots and purchase a card.  Hopefully, EVGA can improve their payment processing for the next sale(if they do another)  as it was a real bummer to get to the final payment/shipping verification page and get screwed.  That happened twice to me that morning.  Ugh.

Smart!
Get everyone else to give up, so then you have less competition!
Even if you are shilling, I would say don't give up--just adjust your expectations.
Eventually, 2-3 months, they'll catch up, and we'll all have our 30x0s, and the driver bugs will all have been resolved.
(And hopefully the botters will be stuck with unmoveable inventory blocking them from buying the latest AirLebrons or whatever)

Planned on buying the Kingpin 3090 so this wait was expected.

No cards sold in my country, and very little to no info on EU shipments anyway.
Pinged @EVGA_JacobF here and on twitter trough several days, no response. But nice to see GamersNexus got two for SLI testing.
The FTW3 premium over FE is 600€, which is ridiculous. On top of that the wait game looks like we are not wanted as customers.
Deleted my order for 3090.

 (XFactor) The RTX 3090 is here. Shout out to @TEAMEVGA for the Christmas Gifts :)
 Wow EVGA nice you gift this douchebag a card because he a youtuber while the rest of us fight bots and your ****ty web site. 



Not even a big YouTuber either. At least they gave him the crappy XC3, lol.

It boggles the mind when you see these companies handing out free cards to “influencers” left and right while everyone else is left to scramble to try and buy one from the pathetic stock that is left over at any given time.

Yep.
And in our case, not even one has ended up for sale status.
Edit. eu.evga.com out of stock and no deliveries yet to the country. It's like hunting down a unicorn.

So the first EVGA cards appear to be dispatching from Scan this morning they appear to be the XC3s and only the 3080s I think.
 
Also the buyer that I saw ordered very late on during launch day sometime after 9pm so either they didn't get many orders or stock numbers were quite high.

Yup. I am no longer focusing on trying to buy one exclusively from EVGA at this point. I'll wait to see what AMD has coming. IF by chance EVGA manages to get some in stock I will buy a card if the website actually loads for me but I've tried twice now and I had a card in my cart and nothing happened.

And don't buy on Ebay. Let the scalpers die in a fire with Graphics Cards that no one will buy.




They are ruining it for everyone out there

I'm assuming you're talking price on retailers websites. In which case I wouldn't trust them.
For a 3080 in France, EVGA EU store is cheaper by 150€ to 200€ compared to any french retailer (except maybe Amazon, they haven't shown their prices yet). Putting the FTW3 Ultra with 5% rebate at 800 / 810€, less than 100€ higher than the FE in my country. On french retailers, FTW3 Ultra is at 1000€, 280€ higher than the FE. That's for a 3080 and you were talking about the 3090 but that's to say that I wouldn't trust many retailers right now many are playing on the hype to absurdly increase the price.

I'm giving up looking for one of these.  There's only so many times I can hit F5 before I get bored on potential restock times.  Not going to lose any sleep over it either as i know I'll get one eventually.  Even if it's in November or December and hopefully any flaws in the first batch of cards have been worked out in the later batches.

Well since no one that signed up for the step up for the 3080 FTW3 has reported getting past step 1.. I am wishing that I selected the 3090 FTW3 when I did my step up.. I suppose the thought of spending 1k more for 12 percent more performance was just too much to reconcile.  LOL.... big mistake.

I've waffled back and forth on FTW3 vs XC3 and also 3080 vs 3090 primarily because I either want a Watercool or an Aquacomputer block.  Given that of those two Watercool has only announced a block for 3080 XC3 my current line of thinking is I'll wait for the 3090 Hydro Copper to be released and just buy that if I can.

That's actually a good idea. I plan on building a custom loop on my computer(just waiting on the graphic card at this point) but it went over my head that I forgot the hydro copper model.  I guess I'll be waiting on that one.

Hahahaha .. FTW3 3080 available at Newegg for 3 minutes. Not going to bother with Newegg or Amazon any longer.
 
If I manage to grab one it'll be direct from EVGA.

Undoubtedly the scalpers are snatching them up from NewEgg.
They probably don't have a limit on cards.

It seems in Germany not even one XC3 Black Gaming has been delivered by Caseking. When is germany getting cards? Funny the german website is doing nothing not even a forum for the RTX 3080 yet!

Unless they're reviewing manually, I don't believe so. I can add a bunch to my cart from the app. At least from the wishlist screen.

I never even started. Nvidia launches are always trash nowadays. I don't attempt to look for a card until several months in anymore.

I think I'm pretty much done. Hypebeast culture ruins every hobby it touches, and it was only a matter of time.

Meh... never ever tried.
 
Gotta laugh about everyone freaking out over a GPU.
 
Seriously, that is the most important thing in your life? Says a lot about where this country is headed.

I have been trying but I'm still not able to buy an EVGA card. I'm getting super annoyed that the site here doesnt work properly with errors all the time. It really sucks.

I had mostly given up but now seeing Nvidia's comments that there will be supply problems into 2021, I kinda feel like I have to start trying again if I want to have any hope of building a PC in the next 6 months.
