    I got the Zotac 3080. still unsure on it as I'll have to upgrade my PSU (SF600 to SF750). If anyone has a 2080ti or 2080super we can chat

    PLE was sold out by around 25 mins ago. Website wouldn't load for the first 20 mins, missed out but will see what other cards come out over next few weeks and might try that.
    PLE is also allowing people to pre-order now to get next available stock.
    Prices seem reasonable.

    This launch was a scam. I question if there was any stock of the Founder's Edition other than what was provided to reviewers. I was refreshing the Nvidia and BestBuy websites every two seconds from 10:55-11:05PM and watched the buttons switch from "Notify Me" to "Out of Stock" within a single refresh. Even a sophisticated web scraping script would struggle to purchase all of the stock in less than two seconds, considering multiple requests need to be made. I can handle missing out and having to wait, but fuck Nvidia's dodgy sales tactics. I hope AMD stomp them.

    what do you mean? they just picked a random entry and gave him the card, it wasn't one of the guys on the stream.
    people are so salty. congrats to whoever won, especially if they are on here.

    got a ftw3 card into a scorptec cart. I know it probably won't be here for a while but that's the one I wanted all along (even if it's overpriced compared to some of the other models but fuck it.
