If you're in the market for new tech then you might be in for a long ride as stock is pretty much nonexistent (thanks scalpers).
Since the release of the RTX 30 series, stock has been incredibly hard to find, with only a handful trickling into the market at any one time.
AMD's RX 6000 series and the next-gen consoles are in the same situation too.
Eventually, stock levels should even out and they should become more accessible, but until they do we can try our best to help you grab a brand new RTX card.
Where To Buy An RTX 3080
Well, right now you pretty much can't buy one.
Stock does trickle into the market on an almost daily basis, but it is that small that unless you're extremely lucky you won't get one.
I ended up spending a week glued to my phone for stock updates trying to get a 3080 and ended up settling for a 3070, it's still a nice card but I'm always on the hunt for a 3080 without paying a stupid amount of money, there's no way I'm paying £1500 for a 3080 when the RRP is £650-800, thankfully I got my 3070 FE for £469 in February 2021 so it is possible.
Even if stock was available right now, by the time I finish writing this they will likely be gone, nevermind by the time you find this article.
So instead I will be listing many of the trusted retailers (there are a lot of scam sites out there cashing in), as well as some key social media accounts to follow for stock updates so you can try and grab the latest RTX card.
Who To Buy From
Here is a list of many of the trusted retailers that will receive stock for the card.
Who To Follow
Here is a list of stock alert accounts on Twitter as well as Discord servers to join.
