If you’re building a no-compromises PC, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 is the only real option. Consumer graphics cards don’t get more powerful than this as its loaded with so many CUDA, RT, and Tensor cores alongside an absurd amount of GDDR6X memory. This card can beast through gaming and PC workloads just as quickly as it can beast through your budget. And, unfortunately, all the power has made this card as elusive as the rest in Nvidia’s current lineup.
The RTX 3090 normally costs a pretty penny, but with the difficult markups of the past year, it’s gone well beyond MSRP. The Founders Edition would normally cost $1,499 (£1,399, around AU$2,030), with partner cards usually costing a good deal more than that. Surprisingly, the RTX 3090 has suffered from quite the same price inflation as its siblings. You can currently find cards available on Amazon between $2700 and $3000. In the UK, you can find models from Scan, Box, and Overclockers for around £2000 and up.
That price may still be a little steep if you were hoping to get something closer to the Founders Edition pricing. In that case, your best bet is with a pre-built PC. Ebuyer has some reasonably price options in the UK, and you can get a full HP Omen 30L with an RTX 3090 in it for the same $3000 that would have only gotten you the card on Amazon. If you still want to hold out for a lower price on the card alone, keep checking beck, as we’ll continue to update this page with any availability we discover.
