I'm in the US if that wasn't clear and I got most from Newegg but got 1 from Nvidia and 3 from Amazon. I also decided to do a step up for a 3090 from a 1660 the week before it launched (ordered a 1660 on Amazon registered and was in the step up queue within 2 minutes of its launch) The last card came from the evga queue this week for the 3080 xc3 and like I said I missed the 3080 FTW3 through that queue last week. I saw the email 6 hours after it was sent. I've gotten - 3080 founders (Nvidia) 3080 asus (Amazon) 3080 xc3 (newegg day 1) 3080 xc3 ultra (evga queue this week) 3090 asus oc (newegg) 3090 asus oc (Amazon) 3090 zotec (newegg) 3090 ftw3 ultra (step up from evga 1660) There's been lots of ways and options to secure one of you're a even a bit dedicated and know how to think outside the box. I will say the days of signing up for alerts from now in stock and getting a card within minutes of their email is gone. You've got to atleast put in more work than that for sure. I've seen their alerts go off about 1/20th of the times the other discords and such have been.
