The RTX 3080, or any other GPU for that matter, is still largely elusive.
This is in part to a lot of reasons, such as people spending more time at home/working from home so they are buying or upgrading their PCs, miners, scalpers, and a general silicon shortage, which could see manufacturing slow down until at least 2022.
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
Right now it is very difficult to buy an RTX 3080, you do see the odd one come onto the market every day but it is incredibly difficult to be the one who actually secures it.
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.
