The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 stash is running low due to skyrocketing demand and Nvidia has already apologized in advance for the most powerful consumer graphics card selling out before it even gets launched. The good news, however, is that some major sites are replenishing their supplies of the cutting-edge GPU.*-

If you’re from the U.S., here’s a little buying guide to help you know where to get the RTX 3090:  

Nvidia

While the Nvidia site is running slow and getting the GPU direct from the source may be a little tricky, you can still buy the RTX 3090 from the Nvidia online store. In fact, the Nvidia site does not only offer the Founder’s Edition of the GPU but other third-party models as well.

Best Buy

Best Buy is one of the best options to buy the RTX 3090 because it offers a wide range of RTX 3090 models, including the Nvidia RTX 3090 EVGA for only $1,549.99 and the MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Ventus for $1,569. These cards are currently out of stock, but you can check back regularly to see if Best Buy has already restocked.

Newegg

All RTX 3090 cards are currently out of stock on Newegg but you can still visit the site for Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3090 deals. The site sells the GPU for $1,499.

B&H

The B&H website indicates that it is also restocking all its RTX 3090 cards soon, which means they don’t have the products yet. However, you may click “Notify When Available” if you want a head’s up when the graphics cards will be back in stock. The cheapest card being sold on the site is the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity, which sells for $1,499.

Take note that the RTX 3090 is not for the average gamer, as Nvidia said. This monstrously powerful graphics card is for professionals, researchers, and those who have the means to game at 8k, hence the hefty price tag. If you don’t have the budget, then the GeForce RTX 3080 is the GPU to go for. It’s a bit slower than the RTX 3090 but it’s good for gaming at 4K and considerably cheaper at only $699.
