    Been offered EVGA 3080 FTW3 (LN111000 - guessing they have made these new pn sku codes so as to not put them in with the normal stock)

    Thoughts?

    I'd take EVGA over Asus any day.

    Same advice as I'd give to someone looking at a desert menu: Take the Cheesecake

    Yeah, I chucked a 3060Ti in the basket just to see if it's legit - Honey knocked £50 off the price too, which brought it down to £463

    I honestly don't expect this to work - just waiting for the "order delayed" emails starting Monday.

    I paid via CC for a wee bit of protection.

    Yeah I'm expecting it to be delayed, but I hope most people aren't going to viking so the queue will be smaller! As long as I get a few months of mining to pay it off I'm happy! :p

    No, I mean delayed like Scan does it - updated with new delays every couple of weeks.

    Delays on the never never, if you will.

    Does that work in this case though?

    I mean the shop never promised you a delivery date, so you can't ever accuse them of not delivering because they have until the heat death of the universe to ship the product...
