Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi to everyone, I want to replace my asus strix 980 with the new Asus strix 3080 OC, the problem is aviability.

I just found a web page that let me buy one (a trusty web) but only by booking (899,99€). In the page says that the orders made today will be aviable 30 of october.
My question is if you gues that the stock will be fill again sooner or if its worth it to wait to reviews of the strix or to the AMD´s Big Navi realease.

Noone can say how the stock will develop. Patiently waiting for my pre-ordered Asus TUF 3080 myself. 899€ seems to be quite high for a 3080's MSRP of 699€. I ordered my TUF for 799€. But i guess this is what happens when demand is so much higher than supply.

My main concern is if i buy the 3080 and the release a 3080 ti or Big Navy release and the 3080 price drops. Its clear that 899 is a high price, in other webpage they have it for 855 (out of stock).

 

I dont really need the card right now but my brother (who will have my old 980) have just found my old parts (3770k etc) and want to have the card now (for free ....)

If you hold off due to future "possibilities", that's on you. I wouldn't look at it that way, yet.

 

As for our brother... even if you book the card, he doesn't get your 980 right now anyway. Moot point.

 

I just don't think pre-paying for something that won't be potentially out for another 5 weeks is a good idea. 

 

If you don't need the card now, you won't need it in a month either.  Enjoy life, don't sweat all this 3080 bullshit.
