I just stumbled upon an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti without waiting months — and you can too

Getting an Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series graphics card has been a challenge since its release in September 2020. High demand, a lack of global chips, and speculators make any GeForce 30-series all-in-one cards impossible to get at retail prices.

This issue isn’t going away any time soon, as Nvidia warns that the shortage could continue into 2022. If you’re a PC gamer and are looking to upgrade to a new GeForce RTX card, you’ll be disappointed. Even if you do find an RTX card in stock, we feel now is not the time to buy a new graphics card.
