It was either 449 or 499 but good luck finding any at those prices now. You're paying 2x that now

thank you
Sign up to one of these instant message alert services, as far as I know the only UK retailer selling FE at MSRP is scan.co.uk - they release their stocks every 2 weeks or so, and they go within minutes (for the 3060 Ti, seconds!) so you'd have to be quick.

:goodluck:

Ah in that case I would hold off for the RTX 40 series, probably set to be announced later this year.

The RTX 30 series has been nothing but a disaster (not in terms of performance)

what are the prices looking like for the 40 series? i was going to make a build with a 5600x and 3070. (around 1500, that being i found a 3070 for 600)

my budget for the pc is around 1500.

I don't have a clue, but would expect it to be probably more expensive

It's not like nVidia / AMD are charities, and they are clearly making the most out of the graphics cards shortage

In 2019, the 1650 was US$159 MSRP, the vastly more superior 1650 SUPER was US$169 MSRP. Both had 4Gb only, but the RTX 3050 (8Gb) which is a lot better than the 1650 (interestingly, not compared to the SUPER version) is US$239 MSRP.

It's also clear that the AIBs (e.g. Asus, MSI, Palit etc.) are not helping and are releasing non-FE cards at vastly inflated prices.

Back in the day, MSRP was the absolute ceiling of the price of a card, I remember getting the Radeon HD 7770 GHz edition, MSRP ~ US$160 for £66 new from Amazon :sadnod:

yep this whole gpu shortage and scalping issue is terrible.

just had a look and some rumours say the 4070 could be around 500 which i assume would be like the 3070 equivalent (not performance, but like the mid range card) . i highly doubt i'll even be able to get my hands on a 3070 at 600 around mid 2022 so expecting to get a 40 series card at msrp on release seems even more unrealistic

might just stay looking for a 3070 and upgrade after a year or few.

Skip RTX 4000 if you can too, I guarantee they're gonna be heavily inflated

was hoping that I'd be able to get myself a 3070 before the launch of 4000 series (mid 2022) and hold onto it for a while until I can find a 4000 card at msrp. with games getting more demanding tho, im not sure how long a 3070 would survive for (pc noob so i dont know a LOT about it)
