Finding where to but the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 is not an easy process. That's because the $249/£239 graphics card is in high demand with supply yet to fully catch up.
But overall there's a wind of change when it comes to finding Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 restocks, as well as fresh stock of other GeForce RTX 30-series cards.
We are now seeing a downward trend in prices sparking a sign that supply is catching up with demand, as well as card makers aiming to reduce prices so GPUs are more in line with MSRP. Graphics card restocks also appear to hang around on shelves a little longer than last year. As such, it may now be the best time to start looking at buying a new Nvidia or AMD graphics card.

This method has proved a far more reliable and straightforward way to get hold of other cards in the 30-series, and we expect that to be the case with the RTX 3050 as well.
Right now, the card is available in laptop form. Make sure to check out these RTX 3050 laptops at Newegg (opens in new tab)if you've decided that a keenly-priced gaming laptop may be the way to go instead of chasing graphic card stock for weeks, or potentially months.

Retailers that allow customers to configure their own desktop tower also aren't offering the RTX 3050 as a choice quite yet. However, we expect this to change very soon, so watch this space.
