While console users have a hard time finding an available PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, PC gamers have been experiencing the same dilemma with the latest graphics cards. The good news for customers in the United States is that Best Buy has announced ahead of time that more than a hundred of its stores around the country will be selling Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 series cards on Tuesday, July 20.
Best Buy announced Monday that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 cards would be available in-store in more than 100 locations across the U.S. PC gamers looking to buy a new graphics card can check the retailer's official announcement, where they can find all the cities with stores that will have a restock available this week.
Tickets will be handed out starting at 7:30 a.m. local time, and getting one will guarantee a chance to purchase an Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 card once the stores open at 8 a.m. Anyone who is familiar with how in-store sales for in-demand gaming items go should know by now that lining up way before 7:30 a.m. could help increase their chances of getting a ticket.
This should be one of the most certain ways to purchase the graphics cards at the right price and without worrying about bots of resellers boxing out legitimate buyers while in the queue. Best Buy also confirmed that one unit of graphics card will be sold per one customer with a ticket. The complete list of cities where a Best Buy will have an Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 restock is available in this link.
Meanwhile, Best Buy also reminds customers that they no longer require masks for fully vaccinated individuals, except in locations where there is a mask mandate. But the retailer also said their stores will offer free masks at the entrance for anyone who wants to wear them while shopping indoors.
Best Buy did not specify which Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 models will be available in its stores on Tuesday. It is then possible that the restock includes all cards released in the series, such as RTX 3060, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080.
