12th November.
45 working days.
Sorry thought you said October, it could be possible that it takes that long due to the stock shortages, however no one will be able to give an accurate eta. If you got to the end of the first week of March your order would be at 80 days, so would hope you would receive it before then, but again due to current circumstances no one can give any guarantees.

Thanks, might switch to the 3070 as I need this PC for work. Is the 3070 stock any better at the moment?

If you’ve got the time contact PCSpecialists and just ask if switching would save time before you do it, as wouldn’t want you to switch and it not be any quicker. I should think it would be, but always worth checking before you do it.

Edit: if you’ve got a pc at the moment it may be worth using your current GPU (if it can support the work you are doing and sourcing your own 3080 from elsewhere).

I would say as a whole the 3070 stock is better, you can see the images attached from Stock Informers discord (hope this is allowed) the restock of 3070s happen more often than 3080s, but couldn’t comment on PCSpecialists 3070 stock position you’d need to contact them to find that out.

Have you tried actually getting one though? It’s impossible before you can even to add to basket it they’re already sold out
Couple of buddies of mine managed just fine, almost gave me hope that PCS might be able to deal with the orders made 2 months ago, but they were just lucky
 
Yeah, that's the thing, apparently, scalping for online shopping isn't illegal. It is only illegal for ticket sales. Apparently, the UK government were discussing changing that law in December though :ROFLMAO:
 
I hope that I am not violating the forum rules by writing this here.

I placed my order with PCS on the 22nd of October for the system including RTX3080 and i9 10850. 60 working days later, I am still in pre-production phase - same as many of you, some of you have been waiting even longer than me. I am not here to complain, I understand this is the global issue and PCS are not at fault here.

As I am not the most patient person you can imagine, 60+ wait time for a system is rapidly becoming something that is beyond my capacity. On the 7th of January, I placed the order with a reputable competitor of PCS, which name I will withhold here for the obvious reasons, for a system including RTX3080, Ryzen 5800x, Asus Rog Strix x570, 32 GB Corsair Vengeance LPX Black DDR4 3600MHz, SSD: WD_BLACK SN850 1TB, Corsair iCUE, H100i PRO XT, Windows 10 included, so these two orders could race against each other. Generally, a bit better rig overall than the one I ordered with PCS (my fault, not theirs). Price tag? £2416. Guess what? Today I received communication that my order has been successfully built, tested and will be dispatched later on today. 7 days after I placed the order with them, even though the estimated delivery date given to me at the time of me placing the order was 26/01/2021. DPD is due to get it delivered tomorrow. The only downside is that I had to pay the full price as their finance company rejected my application.

I am posting this stuff here on forum to let you know that there is an alternative to 3months+ wait time. Also for those who pay additional £600 for a higher tier graphic card or downgrade their entire systems to get through the building phase. The thing is, you don't have to. I am absolutely sure that anyone who'll stick with PCS will eventually be satisfied with the received product as PCS means high quality, which is why I placed my order with them in the first place. Unfortunately, 60 days (and 10-15 more probably) wait time is only as far as my loyalty goes and I decided to use the service of one of their competitors, whose reputation matches the one PCS has, but was able to deliver the product in the quicker manner.
I included no gpu in my build and got a 3080 myself, still waiting 30+ days for build. sent them a message 3 days ago regarding the order and still waiting for a reply. this whole thing left such bad taste that I want to cancel the order and try one their competitors as you mentioned. but of course I cant even do that because they dont reply to emails, guess i have to wait the 2+ hours on the phone instead.

Everyone has a choice. Nobody is being forced to stick with PCS. If anyone thinks they can get a better deal elsewhere then of course they should buy from elsewhere. It's not rocket science.
