Finding RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti stock for their respective MSRPs has been incredibly challenging since both GPUs launched, with no signs of slowing up any time soon, unfortunately.
Both the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti remain to be one of the more sought-after video cards on the market, and definitely, one of the best graphics cards you can buy, due to their entry-level costs but huge performance potential for both Full HD and 1440p especially.

The main differences between the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti are the amount of CUDA cores and GDDR6 memory. The former is running 3,584 CUDA cores with 12GB VRAM and the latter utilizes 4,864 CUDA cores with 8GB VRAM.
Numbers aside, the RTX 3060 Ti performs better than the newer RTX 3060 video card, so if you have the option between the two, we urge the Ti variant overall for stronger performance despite its lower memory capacity.
RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti prices
The RTX 3060 line, in either of its configurations, impresses based upon its price-to-performance ratio, especially when considering that the RTX 3060 carries a $329 / £300 price tag and the RTX 3060 Ti has an MSRP of $399 and an RRP of £369 - not that you can currently find either video card for their retail prices online at the moment.
It's the same story that we've seen with RTX 3080 stock and RTX 3070 stock; you're going to have to pay more than anticipated for either the RTX 3060 or RTX 3060 Ti models right now, however, through certain online retailers, it isn't too much of a mark-up in most cases considering the specific manufacturer variants.

Hope isn't lost completely for the rest of the RTX 30-series range; stock has been appearing sporadically throughout both the US and UK, but it could cost more than anticipated for the cards on their own.
If you're unsuccessful in picking up an RTX 3060 or RTX 3060 Ti today, then the Black Friday graphics card deals should be another great opportunity, too.
