I just noticed that the rtx 3060's have released and are already sold out.  Just a reminder to myself about how lucky I got.

Yep. You somehow stepped on a leprechaun basically.  ;D

I have friends that are at the point where they will take 3060/3070/3080, doesn't matter which, and still can't land one despite all the stuff I mentioned a while back - multiple discords, store pages auto-refreshing/notifying, etc. It's just stupid.

And the AMD 6xxx cards are no better.

I got a promo email from Newegg for the 3060s yesterday I think.  I went to the site to see how much they were and they were all sold out.  They were also advertising a pre-order for a pre-built system by ABS with a 3060 RTX 8GB, i7, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD for $1300.
