If you get a 3080 I'll buy the 3090 off you.

That would be a pretty penny as Asus has a good markup and then newegg has a markup on top not to mention shipping costs to EU :P

The rate of drops is increasing in the bot discord servers so I wouldn't lose out hope just yet. If I do manage to get a 3080 Strix, I'll let you know though!

How much did you pay for the 3090?

I think I decided on my mainboard. It's gonna be the Dark Hero when it releases, no matter the price. I'm also committing to my expensive 3600MHz CL14 RAM. PSU is pretty much locked in as well, 850W should be enough.

That means the only thing that I'm not firm yet is the cooling. All the AIOs are so similar.

2150 USD including Taxes and Shipping. The MSRP was $1900 USD on Newegg cause they keep on increasing it every time they put one in stock. Asus has an official MSRP $1800 USD I think.

I hope my pre-order come through in a reasonable time then because I don't think am willing to go to 2150usd.  My all in price on my pre-order was $1863.49 (not actually paid anything yet they only charge when it ships)  hopefully that come through.  It not so much the money but it just really bothers me paying over MSRP on principle and by MSRP I mean the OEM not the retailer.

Yea I wasn't really looking at the price as I was doing the newegg trick loll. Newegg is technically $100 above MSRP so it's not the worst but because Asus has $300 above a FE 3090, it makes it look a lot worse. But it is also why I am still looking for a 3080 as that price is a lot more justified. I can afford it for sure and buying a "Halo" gpu is part of my bucket list but yea, this one is a bit oof.

Damn, not sure what market ASUS is aiming for that one. A hardcore Gundam/gaming enthusiast?

In preparation of Cyberpunk and Shadowlands I bought my first NVMe.

Now just GPU and CPU to go :o
