    Anyone here lucky enough to buy a RTX 3080 card today? I couldn't find it anywhere that it wasn't already sold out. I had on several sites to notify me when available but never got a notice from any of them except Nvidia which came in 1:15 after the cards went live, thanks Nvidia!:(

    ordered from overclockers at 5.30pm. stock due 21st Sept.
    I asked my brother to order one at 2pm release time but various sites he was looking at crashed or were very slow. and the prices were going up every few minutes too.

    I don't want a 3080. I consider to wait for a 3080 TI/super, or maybe around christmas i buy a 3090, when i get impatient again. :D But in any case a quiet custom card.

    if this is difficult for you, here in Brazil it is much worse, i believe i will only get it next year, even if my g2 reverb arrives this year yet, i will have to push it with my 2080 ti for now and see how it goes.

    Your 2080 ti will definitely do a better job with the G2 then my 2070 super. But either way....can't wait for that G2 to get here!

    Hopefully, most people will stay away from buying from them.

    Here is a quote from an article I read today regarding the lack of ability for most of us to get the 3080 at a reasonable price point....."Nvidia has promised sweeping changes to its webstore to combat bots and those wishing to resell cards for exorbitant prices" So I guess things are looking better for the future ;).
