Have you thought of getting your hands on a different card like a 3070 and selling it once you get a 3080? The way I look at it, until end of February, you can probably make someone happy selling them your used card at retail price. Of course, your current GPU might be 10x better than my 780, so it's not really worthwhile to have a temporary upgrade.I'm not going to lie, I almost pulled the trigger on a scalped 3080 for 1600 shipped.
Its been nearly 3 months since 'release'. This is insane.
