Tracking down where to buy the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 remains a tricky task, at least when it comes to finding it in stock and at a fair price. That's all thanks to high demand and a lack of steady GPU supply.
Yet there's a wind of change when it comes to finding Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 restocks, as well as fresh stock of other GeForce RTX 30-series cards.
That's because 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. And graphics card stock appears to hang around on virtual 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. But you still might want to wait before upgrading your graphics card — here’s why.
To help in what way we can, we've listed the main U.S. retailers, and some U.K. stores, offering the graphics card below for your inspection. These are worth checking out and signing up for restock notifications so you can maximize your chance of getting the graphics card as and when it's restocked.

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.
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.
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.
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.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060: from £379 @ Scan
Technology retailer Scan has plenty of RTX 3060 cards listed on its website. All of them are sold out as it stands. Restocks have been happening at a reasonable pace, so this is definitely a retailer to keep an eye on.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060: coming soon @ Ebuyer
Ebuyer currently has the largest offering of RTX 3060 cards in the UK, with models from PNY, Zotac, MSI and ASUS among others. However, all the listings have been marked with 'coming soon' since launch, it's likely just a matter of time before the stock is available to order.
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 (here's our guide to the best gaming laptops) 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.

Best Buy does get them in but snapped up in 1 second off their web site. Why? Because Best buy prefers to have is business model a free for all.
Its not first come first served at all. Its just based on LUCK. You could search for 2 months then have a buddy that has done ZERO work buy a card before you based on luck that he happened to be on their web site the right day right time.
Best Buy and others
No way to get auto emails when product is in
No way to pre pay to reserve yourself in line to get the next one.
What they should do it the web site is offer to reserve a card based on money you pre pay. Then make a list based on the Time/date and not a free for all.
Jon Doe pays 499.00 in Jan 2021 to best buy the reserve his card. He is number 120 on the list of people.
Best buy gets in 20 card per week. So Jon can now estimate when he will get his card. Like 6 weeks. No one gets to cut in line ahead of him this way.
If you find a card some place else just cancel that best buy order and they adjust the chronological wait list. Its the way it works for most things. I buy foot game tickets I dont get there and fight for the seat I paid for based on luck like Best buy does with Video cards.
Toms Guide basically only can say "Good luck" cause we are not help.
How about Toms Guide put some pressure on companies to change the selling practices vs posting "gee we can't help much"
