Tracking down where to buy the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card hasn’t gotten easier in 2022. We’ve seen very limited restocks over the last few weeks, and the coveted card remains just as elusive as ever. For this reason, scoring an RTX 3080 via a pre-built PC desktop is often the best method of getting a hold of Nvidia’s latest gaming tech.
This solution comes with its own drawbacks as powerful gaming PCs can be extremely expensive, but that’s where this killer deal comes in. Right now you can get an Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 Desktop with Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 for $2,199 at Dell (opens in new tab). That’s a sizable $700 off its regular retail price of $2,899, and one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for a configuration of this quality. The rig is selling out fast with 74% of stock claimed, according to Dell's website.
