    Noticed the MSI and Gigabyte RTX 2070 Supers just got a massive nearly £200 increase from 599 to 750...? Anyone know why this is? Price seems the same for these on other sites

    No idea but why on earth would you want to buy a 2070 Super for £599 anyway?

    I don't feel like waiting months to receive a 3070 if you get me, and most of them are out of stock. ;-;

    Probably due to lack of stock now, think they stopped producing them a few months ago. Similar things happen with previous gen Intel CPUs.

    There isn't that much demand for 3070's you can literally buy one right now if you look around.

    It's so when they drop the prices for Black Friday then it seems more like a 'deal'. All etailers seem to do it, just a sales tactic.

    It's so under law they can claim it was at a higher price before the sale and so most people don't notice.

    3070s are available but at a much increased price, more than I'm willing to pay. I'm noticing overclockers are £80+ more expensive than elsewhere and the prices seem to be increasing on a daily basis. It does feel like stock is picking up now though, I mean how many people can afford to drop £600+ on a graphics card?
    To the OP I wouldn't recommend pre-ordering, if you have £600 buy a 3070, they're coming into stock every day and I saw there were some on there just now.
