If he's more than happy to wait then go for it. If you pay a little more you can go elsewhere and get it much much quicker.
At this point people should really just wait until the bullshit has blown over and they can get one locally.
I think he wants evga xc3 black
Their waiting list is probably out until Easter lol.
For that specific one? Difficult because stocks everywhere are low. It's a matter of sniping one from somewhere by using techniques to monitor sites or browse forums like here, WP, reddit perhaps, and I'm sure there are others. If he's happy to settle for some other AIB brand and pay a little extra he should be able to secure one before crissy.
MSI Ventus 3080 https://www.computeralliance.com.au/msi-rtx3080-10gb-ventus-3x-oc-pcie-video-card
Gigabyte 3080 https://www.computeralliance.com.au...ing-oc-pcie-video-card-gv-n3080gaming-oc-10gd
both seem to be available (low stock)
Gigabyte 3080 OC available here too: https://www.msy.com.au/gigabyte-nvidia-n3080gaming-oc-10gd-10gb-rtx-3080-gaming-oc-pci-e-vga-card
Classy. Unless a 100ft tall naked guy suddenly appears standing outside my window, that gets my award for todays biggest arsehole.
My TUF RTX 3070 OC is built like a tank. I love it. Best built card I have ever owned.
3080's have been popping up available all over the place, I haven't even bother posting links for a while now. There's been mixed pricing, some pretty reasonable, some just stupidly obscene.
I picked up a 3080 gaming X trio just then from AU First Blood, $1599.
The Galax SG is too loud, hopefully the MSi is quieter.
Friends don't let friends pre-order things from PLE.
50% cancellation rate on the 3080 evga cards (from documented cases), not stellar! And near 50% cancellation rate over all the 3080 cards ordered, not stellar either!
I got so excited yesterday because my PLE 3080 FTW3 Ultra order (SO-8714xx) got an ETA of the 20th, checked it this morning and it was back to the 27th. Why they gotta bust my balls like this?
Should just make the ETA late December and if it comes early happy days
Just read on WP that PLE have updated all their ETAs: https://www.ple.com.au/rtx30-buying-information
This is probably the only thing that can help nvidia now.
If developers optimise more
But even then thats total vram used plus cached its probably not even using close to that, there is no program which will tell you how much a game is actually using.
best 3x8pin sku that's 100% compatible with the strix 450watt bios
bit the bullet and ordered a gaming trio x through HN's as freight was only $10 compared to 40+.... wonder how long it will take to get here
