Nvidia pre-empted that the RTX 3090 would sell out fast despite its £1,499 price tag and apologized in advance that a lot of people will struggle to get one. But it also said that the RTX 3090 isn't really for the average gamer, and is instead aimed at professionals, researchers, and people with the means to game at 8K.

With this in mind, the GeForce RTX 3080 is probably the graphics card to go for, especially as it's only 10 to 15 percent slower than the RTX 3090 when gaming at 4K. And at $699, it's a lot cheaper.
However, some might be really frustrated at not being able to get an RTX 3080 and have decided to splash the cash on the RTX 3090. So here are a list of retailers selling the monstrously powerful graphics card; all are out of stock as of this writing, but you can check back regularly to see if RTX 3090 supplies have been replenished.

There's a good chance that you'll probably struggle to get a GeForce RTX 3090 anytime soon. But if you're really keen on getting the powerful GPU and have other PC parts that need a refresh, then you could simply opt for a new gaming machine altogether.
Alienware, Cyberpower, Falcon Northwest, iBUYPOWER, Maingear, Origin have desktops on offer with the GeForce RTX 3090 as a graphics card option, including versions of our picks for the best gaming PC. Just bear in mind that these are seriously expensive PCs costing several thousands of dollars. You will, however, end up with a PC that will basically chew through pretty much any game you can throw with ease as the very highest of settings.
If all this seems a bit much, then bear in mind AMD Big Navi is on it's way on October 28. It's looking set to offer serious power, potentially at prices that undercut Nvidia's new graphics cards. So if you've not managed to secure a new Nvidia GeForce 3000-series GPU, then there's more to come from the graphics world this fall.
