    After missing out on the first batch, I managed to get a preorder in from both scan and ocuk for a Strix before both sites died totally. I was going to cancel whichever lost the race but after about 30mins, both checkouts worked at the same time so now I have 2 on preorder :) I'll cancel whichever loses the race to be in stock.

    Seems like ordering one card, and wait several weeks for it to arrive. I actually had this with my current monitor, which was out of stock, and needed to be ordered from the US by the retailer. ofcourse he ordered more for further potential buyers, but that took almost a month of waiting for me.
    Maybe things will quiet down when the new ps and xbox versions are released to the public.

    Sometimes in certain ways from certain circumstances I wish it was 1990 again. :D

    Agreed, there will be some lessons learned from all this excitement for sure!

    You'd think they'd be anticipating it if this is what the case is. Expect the unexpected.

    According to their twitter, it was 6 hours ago it all started dying. https://twitter.com/OverclockersUK/status/1306584561132994561

    Well done, you did well.
    But timing shouldnt be the order of the day for pre-ordering to be delivered in a few weeks or a month though.
    It isnt possible, even now.

    In a few weeks the market will be flooded with Ampere, i mean it should be under normal circumstances at least.
    Anyways i like the idea of waiting till December earliest, maybe January we see 3070ti?
    At the very least waiting till bigger vram variants.

    Looks like buying a Founders Edition card from NVIDIA is going to be near impossible, at least this side of 2020, so the options may be limited to third-party cards. I prefer the design of the FE card personally plus it's a 2-slot design but it does look like the third-party cards offer better cooling (the ASUS TUF Gaming for example is some 10-12 C cooler than the FE for example and only slightly louder fan-wise).

    Does anyone know which third-party cards are 2-slot rather than 3-slot? If I have to buy one of these then I don't want a bulky triple-slot card. I've seen the EVGA 3080s listed as being 2.2 slot (basically 2-slot) but more sites do not seem to list this specification and based on the images it looks like most are triple-slot.

    Waiting will be better in the long run. Prices will stablise and AMD's RNDA2 offerings will be available giving you more choice. I do not expect AMD's cards to better NVIDIA's but they may be competitively priced and even more power efficient. Not that I will be buying one as my ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q monitor only supports G-SYNC so I am stuck with NVIDIA until I upgrade my monitor to a 4K one which will not be any time soon. I am perfectly happy with 1440p on a 27" display and do not see the point of 4K from the viewing distance I sit at. I prefer to prioritise higher graphics settings and framerate over resolution.

    Ho hum... EBuyer are now only showing £700+ RTX 3080 for pre-order and all of them show an estimated availability date of... wait for it... 30th November 2020!!!

    What a complete joke of a launch this has been for us in the UK. Maybe it's better in the US but it seems to me that NVIDIA have launched a product with extremely low availability just to beat AMD's Big Navi announcement next month. It remains to be seen if the RTX 3090 and 3070 availability fares any better but I cannot imagine there will as big a demand for the $1,500 3090 as there will be for the $500 3070.

    Even the Pallit 3080 on the NVIDIA site which is linked to Box at a £649, actually show as £799 on the Box site!!!

    Not that desperate for a new card that I would pay those ridiculously inflated prices so I guess I can wait even it means not getting one until next year.
