My search has finally ended!
 

 
I got to the line around 5am. This was my second attempt at waiting on line and it was well worth the wait. The first time I waited, I had a chance to buy a 3090 TUF but decided not to.
 
Anyways with that said, I have kindly removed myself from the EVGA queue

 
Cheers all!

    Congrats! enjoy your new toy !
    Honestly, I'm a fan of the founder edition type ( blower type) and have been with EVGA for more than 10years of the motherboard and Graphic card, if this time EVGA won't have its blower type I will go for Nvidia ones or whichever has it. It really hurts their loyal customers.

    Good effort😎👍
    Should have grab some more for your fellow members😼

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    How did you know to line up for a card that day?  I'm in Queens and near the MicroCenter in Flushing, probably should have tried to get a card there at some point.

    Microcenter is the last real computer store. Every state should have one.

    How did you know to line up for a card that day?  I'm in Queens and near the MicroCenter in Flushing, probably should have tried to get a card there at some point.




    I first went there last Thursday at around 11:30am because I needed to buy something else (a fitting for my drain port). And I just saw a Gigabyte Aorus 3070 just hanging out on the shelf in plain sight there. So I spoke to a worker there because I was thinking about pulling the trigger on the 3070 but after speaking to him for a little while, apparently they had gotten a few 3080s that morning and they have been getting decent stock every week lately. So he just told me to come back and try my luck by lining up at around 6-6:30am if I really want a 3080
     
    So the next morning, I arrived there on Friday at 5am and I was #3 on the line. The 2 people ahead were waiting for AMD cpus. MC didnt get any 3080 that day but they did get a TUF 3090 which I didnt want. I then tried my second attempt this Wednesday and got there at 5am and I was #7 in line (the 2 guys in front of me got there like 10 mins before I did and one of them wanted specifically a Strix 3080 only). Thankfully the store had gotten good amount of 3080 stock that day (the rumor on the line was around 10, but I dont know how accurate that is). So I was able to get one without any issues. They let a few people in at a time after 9am, you pick out the item you want from a list (There were some 3090 options, an AMD 5950x, Zotac 3080, EVGA 3080 and I dont remember the other options.).
     
    There seems to be better luck towards the middle to end of the week to get a GPU. I recommend you go to the queens Microcenter either on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday and be sure to get there at approximately 5am, 4:45am if you want to be #1. You will sacrifice sleep that day, but in the long run you dont have to lose sleep over F5'ing websites in the middle of the night trying to beat bots.
     
    Everyone on the line is actually really awesome and helpful and they are just regular PC gamers who want a GPU to game and finish their new builds. No sign of any scalper scum in person which is nice. Best of luck! Let us know if you manage one

    Microcenter always seems to be on the ball... I need to win the lottery so I can franchise one in my city. 
     
    Grats on your new GPU!
