Best Buy Is Giving Gamers Another Chance To Purchase GeForce RTX 30 GPUs Tomorrow

A month ago, Best Buy allowed enthusiastic gamers to purchase current-generation NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards at local stores... at MSRP. This was a big deal considering that most modern graphics cards are hard to buy at MSRP due to component shortages, which have pushed street prices into the stratosphere.

Well, it appears that Best Buy’s July outing was successful, as it is giving shoppers another opportunity to score a GeForce RTX 30 card tomorrow. Like before, this is an in-store-only event that will be available at select Best Buy locations.

According to a leaked store inventory list revealed by GPURestock, participating Best Buy locations will have between 100 and 200 GeForce Founders Edition graphics cards in stock. It looks as though each store will have around 20 to 30 GeForce RTX 3090 cards on-hand and as many as 44 GeForce RTX 3080 cards. Interestingly, the least plentiful SKU is the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, with stores getting between 5 to 23 units each. All GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs will be represented tomorrow, with the exception of the GeForce RTX 3060.

Best Buy’s link for tomorrow’s event is currently inactive, but participating stores will hand out tickets to customers waiting in line at 7:30 am local time. Your ticket guarantees a card on-hand with that store when the doors open a half-hour later. So we suggest that you get to the store as early as possible, and camping out overnight might be your best bet if you’re really desperate.

While we applaud Best Buy’s continued efforts to get GeForce RTX 30 cards into the hands of gamers, would it be too much to ask to team up with AMD and provide the same kind of opportunities for Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards?
