On launch day I ordered an Asus Strix OC 3080 but its been sorely disappointing waiting with no feedback from Ebuyers poor support about even the queue position. I have absolutely no idea when I might get one after waiting over 2 months! With news that a 3080ti is coming with at least 12GB, likely 20GB, I thought I'm having one of those! But it dawned on me these will be in even worse short supply as everyone and his dog will want one. I figured its going to be 4 months+ from release in January (supposedly) before I can get one I want, way too long. Having just bought a CRG9 (C49RG90 in the UK) ultra wide screen display, how am I supposed to get the best out of it? Then up popped a few forum statements that 3090s are in stock in some stores. I thought about it a bit and went looking for the Asus Strix models but none are to be found. But then came across a shop with just 1 Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme 3090 in stock and bought it. I feel stupid, relieved and very happy. My supposed normal 2 year buying mantra has been converted to 4 years so its not really a higher cost for that period, and should last easily with 24GB. I think its overall the best decision because I'm out of the rat run and wont have to enter it again for 4 years. And have a GREAT card coming at last, woohooo Anyone else with a crazed out buying decision?
