Finding where to buy the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 has proved to be no easier than any other Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series graphics card. This isn't hugely surprising as it's a pretty enticing card that is aimed squarely at the middle of the market, and gamers looking to upgrade from GeForce GTX 1060.
Launching at a cheaper price point than the GeForce RTX 2060, Nvidia could well be onto a winner here. Compared to the GTX 1060, the RTX 3060 has twice the raster performance and 10x the ray tracing ability. Plus, it has 3,584 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR6 video memory, a boost clock speed of 1.78GHz, and a 192-bit memory interface.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060: Latest stock updates
Unfortunately with the well-documented global chip shortage set to continue indefinitely finding where to buy the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 in the wild might be just as tough a task as picking up its more powerful siblings the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080.
Nvidia is at least taking some steps to address the supply issues that have plagued the 30-series since launch, but it's still likely to be a good long while before you're able to buy a GPU like the RTX 3060 without needing a huge slick of fortunate and lightning-fast fingers.
The stock shortage is especially frustrating in this case as with an MSRP of $329 the RTX 3060 is a really strong GPU for those looking for mid-range performance. So, in order to help give you the best possible chance of scoring yourself one of these coveted cards, we've put together this list of retailers that stock, or have previously stocked, the GPU.
If there is a restock odds are the fresh allocation will go in minutes, so we recommend signing up to an alert service if the retailer’s sign support it.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060: from $329 @ Nvidia
Nvidia is a great place to start when looking for an RTX 3060. Its website lists not only Nvidia's own version of the card but also offers links to other retailers that have the GPU in stock. It's a great way to check the availability at multiple retailers in one place.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060: from $389 @ Best Buy
Best Buy has a selection of Nvidia RTX 3060 cards from MSI, EVGA, and PNY. All of them are currently sold out. Curiously Best Buy is listing a pair of PNY RTX 3060s as "coming soon" so it's worth keeping a close eye on these. There is a dual-fan and a single fan option. View Deal
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060: check stock @ Walmart
Walmart still doesn't have the GeForce RTX 3060 listed yet. We'd expect the retailer to stock the card very soon though, so definitely worth keeping a close eye on this one. View Deal
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060: check stock @ Amazon
Amazon has a holding page for GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards though it doesn't yet have a tab for the RTX 3060. However there is an individual listing for the ASUS ROG version of the 3060 but it's currently being sold for a massively inflated $1,199, so we wouldn't recommend a purchase. View Deal
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060: from $329 @ Newegg
Newegg has plenty of GeForce RTX 3080 listed. But unfortunately, every single model is currently sold out. Hopefully, we won't be waiting long for a restock. View Deal

Where to buy Nvidia RTX 3060 gaming PC
If you’re desperate to get a GeForce RTX 3060, an alternative to buying the card itself is to get a pre-built PC with the GPU included.
The best gaming PCs come with the best GPUs pre-installed, and this is a great solution if you’re looking to either upgrade your entire setup or if you’re entering the PC gaming scene for the first time.
Right now at iBuyPower you can configure a desktop with an RTX 3060, making this one of the easiest ways to get hold of the GPU. The cheapest desktop available will run you $1,459 with the price rising should you opt for additional extras.
Origin PC is also offering the RTX 3060 as part of a full customized gaming rig, prices start from $2,000 for the most basic build offered, but similarly, the total will quickly swell once you've beefed up the specs.
CyberPowerPC is now selling a pre-built rig with the RTX 3060 already installed as well. Dubbed the Gamer Infinity 8000, the desktop starts from $1,585 but that total will quickly climb if you increase the specs and opt for some extras.
Amazon also has a few pre-built PCs that include an RTX 3060 such as this Skytech Shadow PC, which offers an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 and a 1TB SSD alongside the 3060 card. It'll set you back $1,7499
If you're after a gaming laptop, Amazon has you covered there as well. Both the Razer Blade 15 ($1,699) and the Prostar NH77DPQ ($1,399) include an RTX 3060. Though as usual with a laptop, upgrading the internals later down the line will be a much more difficult task.
However you slice it a complete rig won't be cheap, you'll likely have to fork over at least $2,000 for a solid gaming PC from one of these sites. As it stands buying a pre-built PC is pretty much the only way to get a GeForce RTX 3060 that doesn't involve grossing overpaying on the resale market.
