Took some serious effort but I got all the hard to gets without giving in to scalpers. Still waiting on my new case so I can isolate my 3080 from the PSU with a shroud but got the 5600x and Suprim 3080. Very impressive combo.

subscribe to newegg on twitter and setup push alerts. They'll notify you before a drop.

I added all combos and all individuals cards to two separate wishlists. When you select your wishlist all potential combos will show and if you get lucky one at least will stick in your cart. They drop almost on the exact second that newegg says they will so be ready to F5 rapidly. Also have your phone with the newegg by your side doing the same thing. Mine had my PC showing no items available, but phone did. I added it to phone and refreshed cart on my PC and the card was there. I've heard a rumor this is what newegg is looking for to help keep cards out of the carts of Bots.

Make sure you have all your newegg account info entered in advance including credit card.

I got lucky on mine and it was a combo drop and the Suprim stuck...ended up bundling with just a VGA adapter they credited back so I didn't have to pay for a legit combo, just the card.

well, I don't know how newegg website works, but after few refresh, Ive got one in stock.



- Im signed in already, and my visa is saved already
- Click add to cart : worked, nice.
- choose warranty options and shipping options : worked , nice
- ready to pay , page refreshes, '' sorry the item is actually out of stock''

what ?

it still in my cart tho ''Saved for later'', not in the wish list ( a out of stock item, you simply CANT put it in the cart)

I did it fast as I can.

Newegg should give us, humans, like 60 seconds to not be skipped by a bot !

Right, I was literally sweating trying to click buttons as fast as I could. Keep trying, you'll get there.

What sucks is now MSRP is going up.

yeah since yesterday they are about 20$ higher , all of them.

I had like 5 or 6 model under 600$ cad, now only 3.

also here, everything (almost) is closed (25dec to 9 feb), also curfew. so no chance to get it locally.

What they should do, is to make it harder to buy a huge batch. All major stores should receive the biggest batch, and put a limit of 2 by buyer/address.

still looking for a 3060ti, but mid-jan apparently

Funny thing is there was a recent report about how money for electricity is hampering margins on mining. Just not getting the results per watt as before.

depends where, here we have ton of mining rig, they have low rate, 0.07$/kW.

Its cheap , im paying around 0.08X$/kW right now, depending of the weather (how many -25C dry buld we got and how many +30C), im around 1600-1800$/ year of electricity for a 2 story old house 1200 ft2/floor.
Got AC and heat. all electric, even the appliances .

Also miner dont heat their facility in winter, they even need outside air to cool down , so free cooling.

Nordic country with hydro = paradise for miners

starting to be ridiculous

- since monday they all increased their prices (sold by newegg),
zotac +20%
asus +10%
evga : +15%
msi : +10%
gigabyte : +0%

So , they make a huge war price for the war between red/green, and most of their commercials were based on that price.
0 stock
Most little consumers (gamers) still waiting for those card.

So they paid their advertisement anyway with those increased prices.


Just like grocery stores making a huge deal on a 0 inventory product, and the week after, after deal is done, shelves are full.

When EVGA established the waiting list (you sign up and receive an email with an 8 hour windows to purchase in-stock) I put my name on September 18th to be notified of the 3080 FTW3 Ultra availability.

I (finally!) got the email yesterday and purchased it immediately - at the prior pricing before the increase AND got a further 5% off using an associate code! I should be getting it this Thursday.

That's the good news.....all of that being said, - apparently there is a very high failure rate for the 3080 & 3090 series cards across ALL vendors, not just EVGA. So disappointing to see this trend...all in all, a very problematic launch for the Nvidia 30XX.

this is why you want to got with a reputable supplier.

Just like AMD R9 280x, they were SUPER problematic, all the batch had major artifact and crash issues.
I had a asus one, and they at first deny the issue. But I sent them at lest 10 reliable article about the issue, no question ask , they sent me a nvidia free of charge.
