Nvidia’s elusive RTX 30-series graphics cards are almost never in stock (at least at their suggested retail price), but they’ll be available to buy honestly tomorrow, Tuesday, July 20 at some Best Buy locations around the US (per polygon). Employees at these locations starts handing out tickets to a select few people in line at 7:30 a.m. local time on Tuesday morning, and if you get one of these tickets, you’re guaranteed to get the opportunity to buy a GPU when each store opens at 8:00 a.m. hours local time.
Best Buy has not shared which Nvidia RTX models will be available during this drop. Given that it shows the RTX 3080 Ti in its blog post, that could be an indication that you might have the opportunity to drop $1,199 on one of Nvidia’s most capable and expensive GPUs.
It’s also possible that the retailer will stock a wider variety for more budgets, perhaps adding the RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070 Ti or the RTX 3080. Regardless of what’s available up for grabs, supplies will likely dry up in any location soon, so get there early if you want to be sure of a ticket.
Check out the links just above for reviews of each of Nvidia’s latest graphics cards. You may not have to spend as much as you thought if you were gaming on a 1080p monitor. Conversely, if you’re playing on a 1440p or 4K gaming monitor, the ratings should give you a good idea of which card is best suited for some of your favorite games.
