FINALLY got hold of a RTX 3080 from EVGA's queue system. Been in it since Oct 2020. And not a moment too soon. Since my wife has been working from home and freelancing, she's had more rendering projects than ever and her home workstation with a GTX 1080 was not up to the task. She'll inherit my RTX 2080TI which should make some of her projects more bearable.
Ride the lightning my friend.

My brother has this older pc, that he wants to upgrade….isn’t there a site out there in which you can list what you got and it’ll list what’s compatible with it?

Nice, I would have preferred a new card to buying the Series X but they are just so impossible to get.

I was able to get a Series X and PS5 on launch week at MSRP. This new GPU took an entire year and at EVGA's inflated MSRP :rolleyes: . I've never had this much trouble getting a computer part.

That's why I configured and bought a pre-build machine. Now, if you just need a part or 2, that really sucks.

I had to subscribe to Walmart + membership to grab a PS5 at MSRP. I'd say it was worth it. It beats having to pay a premium. EVGA has the right idea of having Elite membership, but anyone can join as long they have more than 100 posts or register a recently purchased GPU. They need to improve on the system and not make it so easy.

Best Buy in my area requires a GPU purchase to be picked up locally, no shipping. I think that's a start.

GPU is a nono for me.
