anarchy998I got tired of waking up early every day and pressing F5 on every website that sells these so I just bought a 2070 Super and stepping up.
ThaWhistleGiven that the world will surely be consumed by a giant space monster within a few months, I don't anticipate ever getting a 30xx series card.
Tom Sawyer Only way to ensure you get one!

bsatherI purchased a 2080 Super FTW3 and did the Step-Up for a 3080 FTW3 Ultra. I needed a card as I sold my EVGA 1080 ti Hybrid for what I paid for it. I've learned a couple things....never, ever be without a card and never, ever expect sellers to have any stock of any new release. Wouldn't it have been great if on the 17th of September there were enough cards to go around? I believe it's all done on purpose and for a reason. I just didn't pay enough attention in Marketing class to learn what that is though...lol. I had a 3080 in my cart on the 17th and couldn't complete checkout, same with the 3090 via the Elite page. And I don't even want a 3090, so the insanity of it all got to me. After it was over I thought what in the hell am I doing? 2020 has affected my brain. So I wait for the Step-Up and per chance a 3080 FTW3 Ultra pops up in stock and I get through checkout, then it will have all been worth it.
TheProI have never done a setup before. I'm inclined of doing it cause I want a 3090, but it looks like it might take a while (I'm using a 1080Ti FTW3 at the moment). If I purchase a 2080 super I can do the setup as soon as I get it (or at least get in the queue) and it will be shipped to me once they are available (even if it takes more than 90 days for them to ship it)? Also what they ship is a new/sealed card, no refurbished cards right?I read a bit more and it says you have to send your card in and then they will send you the new one after they received it. Not sure if I'm ok with that. I thought they sent you the new one and then you send the old one back.
LinS123I was lucky enough to get a 3090 order in last week by refreshing from the review order page. Essentially I had saved the link of the place order page and would refresh and click place order. If it knocked me back to the featured product page, I would hit back and it took me back to the place order page. Then repeat until I got an order confirmation. It took about 75 mins of crashing but I got an order confirmation in the end. But just my luck, the card is now stuck in customs at the nearest UPS sorting centre and they haven't done anything to deliver it in the last 2 days. I already paid the COD (taxes/duties) in advance and they're still holding it. Damn it all.
