Thanks for the tip off. This notice is what got me my card today. You're a true gaming hero. Got a 3090 at Best Buy.
Congrats. That was the only card that didnt sell out at my bestbuy right away. The last one sold around 11AM.

If it offered 70% more performance than a 3080, I wouldve gone for it, but at like 14-20% it makes zero sense to spend more than 2x for a 3090.

Huh?


The 3090 is only 14-20% the performance of a 3080? I'm confused? Did you mean to say its only 14-20% more powerful than a 3080? I do agree the 3080 is definitely the golden boy for price and effectiveness. Tragedy that none were around 🤪

I was able to walk in after work and pick up a FE 3060 ti. No line, no hassle. I wanted a 3070 or 3080 but all they had left were 3080 ti and 3090, both way too expensive for me. I’m pretty happy with it, and also happy I no longer have to enter Newegg shuffle. Finally time to upgrade my PC.
