I am sticking with my 3090 strix tho, should provide highest performance especially since i want to overclock too right? (also customer support told me last week that i most likely go to build this week)

Also there is no preorder on those cards, does that mean they are in stock and you can change and have pc straight away?

Interesting - My PC went into build this morning, I wonder what happens if I switch to one of those (no pre-order and not grayed would mean ready to be picked?)

i am staying with strix, it is better built (higher quality parts) gpu with better overclocking potential for my waterooled pc. Saving 100-150 euro does not matter considering i spent 6.25k :D Also i was told my pc is going into build by the end of this week hopefully by support last week, parts are ready, just load is high.

I would've stayed with the STRIX, although my impatience beat me :( was only a £27 upgrade so not too bad!

The 3090 is still available, so you should be good - I did manage to snag one of the MSI 3080s, which was a 160 Euro saving on the RX 6900 XT (Merc)

I managed to switch to the 3080 and its in testing today! All thanks to your OP - many many thx!!!

Spoken to live chat today, there was only 5 MSI 3090's to buy and they don't have any plans on getting them in again, luckily I was one of the 5 people to buy the MSI 3090 so I've secured my card :) No sign of building yet but hopefully soon!

sweet. I am staying with the strix 3090, been told yesterday by Tove at support that all my parts are in stock. Just waiting for hands to actually go into building :D hopefully next week. Seems like lots and lots of pcs are being build daily if the only think i am waiting for last 2 weeks is manpower

The 6900XT is considerably more powerful than a 3080 though - i’d have expected the saving to be much higher. Is it a 3080 suprim?

It was the Suprim X, for me DLSS + Cuda support swings it in favour of the 3080, I was ordering the XFX Merc 319 as a compromise as I needed the desktop (for work) now and not in September... My gaming will be 4k @ 60hz and while the 4K benchmarks are very similar: https://www.gpu-monkey.com/en/compa...r_merc_319_radeon_rx_6900_xt_black_gaming-195 they are all without DLSS enabled (which will only be needed for games that drop below 60hz on my current rig)

I believe AMD are releasing their version of DLSS. With 4K 60hz you could have easily got away with a 3070, especially with DLSS. I guess the price of the 3080 is so high because of hashrates
