anyone else feel defeated.. i get the que seems like the best option at this rate we all will have searched for cards for so long we could of just gotten a scalped card.. i can imagine some of our hrly wages would easily cover the scalper cost with the time we have put in.

    Honestly hate to say it but the Newegg lottery seems like the best option. I’m still on the hunt as well, keep trying!

    Keep in mind that you're still ahead of the non elite members.  So if prior releases are any indication, you saved yourself almost a year.

    spiffy id rather pay 3k for a card than wait a year or more. besides how do we ever trust they could come through in a year at this point.. have you seen que times? i hate scalpers but they are looking far more reliable

    The fact that NVIDIA stopped RTX 2XXX manufacturing altogether to concentrate to 30 series production shows just how bad this situation has become. Personally I see this going on for months to come.

    scalped cards might be the go, and maybe staying outside a bestbuy or a microcenter might be the other way to go tbh

    trust me if that was a option for me i wouldnt even be looking onlline. mly best buy never has anything within 250 miles and my nearest micro center is almiost 10 hrs away. and the fact new egg posts pictures of their launch cards with ppl at micro centers is a joke when most of them just went and scalped it and evga patted them on the  head

    I managed to get to the notify page where you put your name and email at 9:10, but for the life of me I couldn't get it to submit. I give up lol. At least I have a decent time for the 3070ti ftw at 6:33

    I don't know , most scalper prices on EBay are currently around 2-2 1/2 times over retail costs...That is a steep hill to climb, if you go that route.

    That 9:35 AM finally getting the field to come up and then NOTHING happening then it happening OVER and OVER and OVER in differing ways (white box only etc) was beyond maddening.
     
    Only finally got Submit to register at 11:10 Am PST....yeah pretty damn late :(

    But EVGA doesn't do **** about making the situation better. I Had setup notifications since september 2020 for 3080 (for all models, didn't care which one I get).. haven't gotten a single notifications yet. the majority of cards scalpers are selling on ebay are EVGA.

    look at it from my point of view. i have searched roughly 200 hrs trying to get a card at msrp.. at 20 dollars an hr on top of the 1300 i already planned to spend i could probably buy two scalped cards before evga gets the next 20 min of their lists filled let alone most ppl will wait up to a few years at this rate..

    And this is why scalpers exist. Because there are people so easily defeated and willing to overpay for something that will be replaced within a year or two with a better product at a lower cost because of lack of patience. 

    That $2000-3000 you'll pay for a scalped GPU, you'll never get back - and you dont have a warranty so should it ever have an issue, you may as well throw $3000 into a fire and you'd have accomplished the same thing. It really irks me when I see people overpay for something when they don't have to if they just practice some self-restraint and patience. 

    If you're going to throw away money like that and have very little to show for it - you're better off investing that money so you can earn interest from it and buy a new car or supplement your rent/mortgage or some other bill than be in a hurry to buy a GPU thats just going to be superceded by a newer, better performing model at 1/3rd the cost


    I have a 980Ti in my rig. When the 10 series came out, I wanted to wait for the 1080Ti, but by then the mining craze took hold and prices jumped and supply was all but gone for a few months. I didn't NEED to upgrade.... I just wanted one. It was doing just fine. Then the 20-series came out and I wanted one because of Ray Tracing and the improvement of that over the 10-series. Again, because of timing, more mining demand lead to low supply and made a decision to wait longer to see what happens with Ray Tracing as its a brand new tech to be released. 
    Now the 30-series launched in September - 980Ti still going strong, still able to hit 70-80fps in 1080p in most games with High-Ultra settings. 

    Knowing my experience with the 10 and 20 series release, i figured I'd better hurry up and get a 30-series while I had the ability to.... this too was not in the cards apparently because I was too late to even be able wait at the crack of dawn for the product pages to go active so I can try buying one. And then the queue's became a thing and so far been waiting 8 months and the 3080 queues have barely moved a few days. 

    Finally, I was able to nab a 3080Ti FTW3 Ultra - I had the money, I could afford it. I had the day off so I was able to spam F5 to get in the queue early enough that I only waited a week to get my notify email.

    I'm not going to feed into a pool of greed that is scalping. I understand the why as its simply supply & demand, I respect their hustle but that aint me; and its sad to witness people begrudgingly have their bank accounts siphoned of more than what is necessary for an item that has an MSRP that is orders of magnitude less. 

    I use my PC solely for gaming. I don't work from it as my employer supplies me with computers and other equipment to work from home. I could have gone one more GPU generation if I really needed to wait to upgrade my GPU so I can be able to move to 1440p/4k gaming.

    easily defeated? dude over 200 hrs trying.. my time is worth way moie at that point.. thats 4000 dollars plus the money i had saved for this.. so around 5500 usd. at this point i could have 2 ftw ultra gaming 3080s or 3090s potentially.  but i made the mistake thinking evga could pull through. i will most defiantly make sure my opinion is seen and i hope more follow suit. if companies cant provide in a semi timely manner then scalpers are my go to. quick and reliable

    your free time isnt worth 20/hr. it's called "free" time for a reason. terrible justification for supporting scalpers. if you're taking off work or something, that's just bad judgement on your part. no one NEEDS this.
     
    better luck next time.
     
    you can cry all over the forums all you like, but don't expect that it'll do any good. EVGA is obviously making money with or without you and there is no shortage of customers willing to take your place.

    With you on that, had a long, long page of Notifies (now since deleted yes!), got in at a good time with the 3080Ti FTW3 Ultra - and the Q Gawds shined on me...what a beast of a card, can't believe during this time I managed to land one.

    Well, I looked at 3080's today on ebay (specifically the Asus 3080) and they're going for $1.8-3k lol. I gave up on the discord/best buy stock drops a while ago. I'll wait, as the card I get will be with me for many years. Worth it to me.

    Honestly I've been debating on buying a prebuilt and dealing with the crappy reference card they put in them.  It's the only way to get anywhere near MSRP right now, problem is I don't want to upgrade my system fully until next year when AMD releases their new chipset. (I'm on a 6700k Still and it's been fine)

    honestly i was just trying to take the moral high ground and not help a scalper but its pretty much no choice at this point. after hundreds of hrs searching 3k for a card doesn't sound so bad when msrp is imaginary. evga has elites that has scored way way more than one card while who knows how many have gotten exactly zero even though they showed up the same time
