Nvidia’s RTX 3000 series desktop graphics cards are launched and officially available, but finding one is a huge challenge. The latest card, the RTX 3070 Ti (see our RTX 3070 Ti review) was officially launched on June 3rd but was still showing as "coming soon" on most official stores even an hour after launch. And this follows continuing stock issues with the company's flagship RTX 3080, high-end RTX 3090 and mid-range RTX 3070, all of which were gone within minutes on launch day and have been hard to find ever since.  

Still, with companies promising to restock inventory and cancel scalper orders, it's worth checking on their store pages now and then, which is where this page comes in. Nvidia itself has stated that we should expect shortages throughout the year, but that's all the more reason to stay alert for when opportunities do arise. 

The big issue with getting your hands on these cards is not being able to pre-order them. Instead, you have to sign up for notifications on store pages, or set up a bot of your own (perhaps a Raspberry Pi-powered bot) that notifies you when cards become available. Then, if you're lucky, you can swoop in and buy a card before inventory runs out. We've seen it happen

That's why we've collected the different places where you can get your hands on RTX cards all on this one page, so you can prepare to get the new best graphics cards (or systems that include them, which are less likely to sell out) as soon as they become available.

Note that, as of time of writing, we've checked all the listed stores and still don't see any RTX 3070, RTX 3080, RTX 3060 or RTX 3090 cards for sale. However, there's always eBay or other resellers selling some of these cards...for close to or even double the MSRP through Amazon's marketplace.

Live Restock Events

Why you can trust Tom's Hardware Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

Before we dive into our list proper, we should mention that retailers have started occasionally holding restock events to combat the GPU shortage. The most effective of these are held in person, which helps combat bots. With the pandemic starting to ease in certain parts of the United States, we've been seeing more of these events pop up lately, and it's possible that they might start to become more common throughout the remainder of 2021.

As of writing, the current most recent restock event was held by Best Buy on August 26th. We'll update this page as more pop up.

The RTX 3070 Ti is Nvidia's latest RTX GPU, and aims to fill a niche between the normal RTX 3070 and the RTX 3080. Our review noted that this card isn't great for mining, and partner cards are so expensive that it might not prove that great for gaming, either. Still, if you can find a Founder's Edition for the $600 MSRP, it's a strong performer and definitely worth snatching up.

  • eBay: RTX 3070 Ti cards are currently going for upwards of $1,200 on eBay. Yikes.
  • stockX: StockX, a site commonly used for aftermarket sneaker sales, also has RTX 3070 Ti cards on it. These also cost upwards of $1,200.
  • Best Buy currently has the RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition listed, which is sold out, plus a bunch of similarly sold outcustom cards.
  • Amazon, meanwhile, doesn’t have any official RTX 3070 Ti cards live. Although, some scalpers have put their cards on the site at heavily inflated prices.
  • B&H is in almost the exact same situation as Best Buy, with a bunch of sold out custom cards.
  • Newegg is where you'll find the widest variety of RTX 3070 Ti cards, but they're all sold out. You might get lucky and win a Newegg Shuffle, though. 
  • Micro Center is a bit of an oddity, since all of its RTX 3080 Tis are only available in store. Availability will depend on where you live. 
  • Gamestop currently doesn't have any RTX 3070 Ti models listed.

The RTX 3080 Ti is Nvidia's latest premium GPU, coming it just below the RTX 3090 in both price and power. We had some issues with the founders edition fan speed in our review, and questioned whether gamers would be better served by just opting for an RTX 3090. Still, there's no doubting that this is a powerhouse, as evidenced by how sold out it is.

  • eBay: If money is no object and you're willing to pay more than double the MSRP, eBay has RTX 3080 Ti cards going from upwards of $2,400. Yikes.

  • Best Buy currently has the RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition listed, which is sold out, plus a bunch of custom 3080 Tis that have yet to get new stock.

The most popular card of the new series is the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080. As we said in our RTX 3080 review, it’s both powerful and surprisingly well priced, allowing you to get 30% better performance than the RTX 2080 Ti for $700. There’s no doubt the 3080 is in high demand, which we saw when it sold out within seconds on launch day. That said, a number of retailers have store pages up right now where you can sign up to get notified when they go live again. 

This feed doesn't necessarily show when things are out of stock.

  • eBay: If money is no object and you're willing to pay double the MSRP, eBay has RTX 3080 cards going from $1,599 to $2,100. Good news, though. The $2,100 unit has free shipping.
  • stockX: Similar to eBay, there's also some aftermarket RTX 3080 cards up on stockX, a site commonly used for aftermarket sneaker sales. These range from $1,300 to $1,900, but buying from here might mean supporting people who use bots to resell.
  • Best Buy currently lists RTX 3080s from Nvidia , Gigabyte, MSI, Asus, PNY and EVGA listed. Prices range from $699.99 to $999.99, depending on model and manufacturer. All are out of stock.
  • Amazon, meanwhile, doesn’t have any options straight from Nvidia. Instead, it carries models from PNY, Zotac, MSI, EVGA, Gigabyte and Asus. Amazon currently doesn’t have any prices listed on its available, as it is out of inventory, but you can sign up for notifications on when they restock.
  • B&H doesn’t have the Founders Edition, either. Its cards come from PNY, Asus, MSI and Gigabyte, though they're out of stock. You can still sign up for notifications, and prices range from $719.99 to $904.80 depending on model and manufacturer.
  • Newegg has a range of models from manufacturers like Gigabyte, Zotac, EVGA, MSI and Asus. They range heavily in price depending on model, seller and manufacturer. Newegg also has numerous RTX 3080 bundle deals that include related gear like motherboards, though these are relegated to the Newegg Shuffle. You can also sign up for notifications here
  • Micro Center is a bit of an oddity, in that most of its products are only available in store. This can make for more stock, though. There's a lot of options and a lot of local stores to check, but unfortunately, everything still seems to be sold out for now.
  • Gamestop has five RTX 3080 models listed, though none are available for purchase. But good for you for getting in the race, Gamestop. 

RTX 3060: Where to Buy

Nvidia's non-Ti version of the RTX 3060 is here and is ready to offer Ampere at lower prices...if you can find it through official sources. Like we mentioned in our review, we think the official $329 asking price is essentially "fantasy land." If you can find it through official stores, what you'll get is a card that tends to place somewhere in between the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super in terms of power.

As we're writing this, it's currently an hour after when the card was supposed to launch, and stores are either already sold out or are facing technical difficulties in even displaying their 3060 cards.

This feed doesn't necessarily show when things are out of stock.

  • Best Buy currently has several RTX 3060 models listed on its site, including the Founders Edition, although they're all sold out.
  • Amazon has a wide selection of RTX 3060 listings from ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, PNY and Zotac, but all are sold out.
  • B&H has about a page's worth of RTX 3060 options on its store page, all currently showing a "notify when available" banner.
  • Newegg doesn't have any RTX 3060 cards up for sale through the normal store, though you can try to snag a few through Newegg Shuffle.
  • Micro Center has different RTX 3060 models shift in and out of availability, though they can only be bought in store.
  • Gamestop actually has four RTX 3060 models up on its site, though they're currently not available.

There's also, of course, the gray market.  But with official sources being so scant on stock, even scalpers seem to be having trouble getting inventory. 

eBay: A quick eBay search mostly revealed RTX 3060 Ti listings, though adding "12GB" to the end of our search helped us find more inventory. Prices vary between $800 - $1200, which matches the eBay price trend charts on other Ampere cards we put together for our 3060 review. However, only a few of these listings actually show any proof of having the item in hand, so be careful.

stockX is another reselling site, and it's following similar trends to eBay, with prices tending to land in between $1,000 and $1,200.

The RTX 3060 Ti is no longer the newest RTX 3000 series card, but that doesn't mean stock is any easier to find. Like its younger base 3060 sibling, official stores seem to be sold out across the board. While some stores, like Best Buy, were occasionally refreshing inventory shortly after launch, that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. That's a shame, because while we loved the RTX 3060 Ti's value in our review, not being able to buy it from anyone other than a scalper makes that point moot. 

  • eBay: If you really want an RTX 3060 Ti card at all costs, you can get one here, thanks to scalpers. Buy it Now prices range from $699 up to $1,300. Beware cheap Founder's Edition listed as they tend to have descriptions saying that "this is just to deter scalpers and is just a piece of paper with a picture of the card printed on it."
  • Best Buy: Currently lists a wide selection of RTX 3060 Ti cards, including the Founder's Edition, but they're all sold out.
  • Newegg: Lists more than a dozen different third-party cards and all of them are sold out. No Founder's Edition. You can sign up for price alerts for these which presumably would tell you if they came back in stock, or try to snag a card through the Newegg Shuffle. 
  • B&H: Has plenty of cards listed, with prices ranging from $399 to $649, but all of them are out of stock and there's no Founder's Edition. You can sign up for notifications for each.
  • Amazon: As of this writing, the site didn't even have any listings for RTX 3060 Ti cards, but that could change by the time you read this.
  • Gamestop: Like the RTX 3060, the RTX 3060 Ti also has two models up on Gamestop. And like that other model, they're also out of stock.
