    I'm ready.. But whats the wait at the moment? the only thing out of stock is 3080 or 6800XT I would take either.
    Anyone been waiting for a PC build and how long have you waited and how long left ??

    I've been waiting over a month and heard nothing back, they couldn't even give me a rough date of when it will be ready. I'm also waiting on a 3080.

    Contact them on the customer service forum.

    My machine arrived at the weekend with a 3080 which isn't currently listed for sale on OC (even as pre-order). The machine I ordered spec'd a Gigabyte Gaming OC which had an unknown wait time and they offered me a stocked alternative. I doubt I would have been offered the alternative card (and still be waiting) if I'd not contacted them.

    If you're not wedded to the idea of a particular brand they might be able to do something for you.

    Think OCUK and vendor reps and stated system build GPUs are on a different allocation . Few system builder only sites seem to ship systems off quicker as I'm guessing their buying /order power is greater


    ^^^ gigabyte as above being one that has said stocks for differing parts of the business are kept separate

    You could send them a note and tell them whi hever gpu come in stock first you would be happy with, if that is still the case.

    Good luck, and I'm sure you'll enjoy the machine.

    I'm totally blown away by my 3080 (did come from a GTX970 though!)

    You are lucky you haven’t specced a 3090 in your system cos they are busy selling them at a stupid mark up of more than £1000 over MSRP.

    £2500 for 3090...if that was in your prebuilt spec, I think you would be waiting for a LONG time.

    £3.6k is alot for a rig but we are being squeezed by these tech companies.
