    Unless your payment method uses OTP, then you are wasting your time. That's 3 times now I've been through a basket in 30 secs only to lose out due to verified by visa.

    this thread is getting pathetic. nearly 1400 pages and no one who can give information about cards status seems to give it a look or try to address it. First and last time I order here, glad I avoided this site when I bought my 5900x otherwise it'd be 400+ in a queue and not sat in my pc currently.

    Thanks BitterBeauty for the heads up !
    I've been lurking this thread and after reading all the negative comments about overclockers, mainly greed and lack of communication, I thought I won't shop for them. In addition rtx 3060 ti will launch soon for at least 25% cheaper, which will be only 10-15% slower. However who knows when RTX 3060 ti will actually be available for purchase. Because of the covid situation i have few hours at work, so i got lots of free time to game.

    I overpaid 150 pounds. Is 150 pounds worth several months of gaming when I also happen to have most of my free time until activity at work picks up in the spring ? For me it is. First I need to actually receive the product in hand and see it works properly, but I assume things will go smoothly though.

    Congrats to all who got a 3080 for 650 quid ! I guess we will never see that price again... until it gets replaced by the RTX 4000 series.

    Just my luck I'd been refreshing for the past couple days as I'm on holiday this week, went and made some cheese on toast, of course, they appear and all sell before I come back. I didn't even get any notifications of who's using what to find out so quickly?

    150 FE's just dropped on the competitor literally 10mins ago at £649, they didn't last long ofc, but could have had a 3070 easily...they were available for at least 5mins @ £469

    £11 postage for 3070 and not even a haribo to sweeten the deal, I gave it a wide berth.

    Well I managed to get an FE and just had the email confirmation through. Delivery Saturday.
    What a ride it's been. I can have my afternoons back now instead of sitting watching alerts on my mobile.

    We only had our fortnightly non-update yesterday, so you'll have to wait for a while for a response. Luckily, however, I know what the @ASUS_GPU_Support update will be and I can give it to you right away:

    "We are working extremely hard to have hundreds of cards delivered somewhere by some time and look forward to ensuring weekly deliveries of something by some unspecified date in the future to some retailer I won't mention. However, unfortunately, I cannot tell you when your individual order will be delivered. Of course, you did not ask when your order will be delivered. Still, I like to say that because it makes you appear unreasonable. In the meantime, I have written words that look like an update while cleverly sidestepping the questions you asked. See you in two weeks."

    Of course they tried to scam me, ridiculous to charge that much postage for a piece of silicon. Shame NVIDIA picked them as their store front.
