Tracking down where to buy the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 remains a frustrating activity when the stock is all sold out. And, there's still no clue as to when we can expect a major restock of Nvidia's $699 graphics card.
Still, there's action, at least, being taken to curtain the demand for such graphics cards for cryptocurrency mining; one graphics card maker is bringing back the old GeForce RTX 1060 to attract the attention of miners, who'll hopefully leave RTX 3080 stock alone.
We've rounded up the retailers that are offering the GeForce RTX 3080 to flag to you the best ones to watch. It's also worth signing up for alerts from these retailers to get pinged when the RTX 3080 is back in stock.

Nvidia RTX 3080: Latest stock updates
As of March 3, there is no Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 stock available. And that situation doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. Raw material shortages and the Chinese New Year are being blamed for ongoing Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 stock woe.
But the situation could get a minor respite as AMD will soon launch a new Radeon RX 6000 GPU, which could help reduce some of the impact the huge graphics card shortage is having on the world of PC gaming.
Below you'll find a suite of retailers in the U.S. and U.K that have been selling the RTX 3080, so it's worth bookmarking their store pages if you want to snap up Nvidia's powerful new graphics card as soon as it starts getting restocked.
One trick: Be sure to have all your payment and shipping information saved on the retailer's site, so you don't have to spend precious minutes filling it out — which could mean the difference between picking up Nvidia's newest GPU and walking away empty-handed.
