Figuring out where to buy RTX 3080 graphics cards in 2024 can feel intimidating, especially since the RTX 4080 has now superseded the last gen GPU. That said, there are still plenty of reasons to buy one today, as the cars still packs enough of a punch to run the latest PC games at high resolutions. Not to mention you could potentially pay a lot less for one if you know where to look.

The RTX 3080 once sat on the best graphics card throne, but there are now newer RTX 40-series options that pack more of a punch. If you go looking for a GPU at most retailers right now, you're more likely to find Lovelace cards than you are older Ampere models, especially when it comes to mid-range selections. As time goes on, you'll likely see even less new stock on the market, meaning you may have to go second hand.

However, there's still time to snag a new Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 before that inevitably happens. So, we've whipped up where to buy the RTX 3080 below along with some reliable retailers who tend to still stock the last gen GPU.

RTX 3080 price 

It's worth reiterating that the Nvidia RTX 3080 carries an MSRP of $699 and RRP of £649 respectively. That's, unfortunately, the going rate in an ideal world, though - sadly - that's just not reflective of the current market for PC gaming tech. When online retailers have stock of these cards, it's always above the MSRP/RPP the vast majority of the time; at least right now. Though it is getting better. 

We said in our Zotac Gaming RTX 3080 Amp Holo review from earlier this year, that it's a "truly fantastic video card". This sentiment remains just as true in 2022 with today's games as it was when the high-end Ampere video card launched nearly two years ago. Make no mistake, any rig running the RTX 3080 can still easily be classified as one of the best gaming PCs you can build at the moment.

Can you buy RTX 3080s directly from Nvidia?

Generally, the answer to this is a firm yes! However, in reality, it's a bit more complex. While we could originally get the Founders GPU direct from Nvidia, there's basically none of these ever for sale now. However, now what you'll find when you browse Nvidia's store is a wide selection of RTX 3080 variants from the likes of EVGA, PNY, and more, that you can check the availability of and then go directly to live listings at retailers.


Make sure your setup has everything you need with the best CPU for gaming, best RAM for gaming, and best SSD for gaming
