Stock shortages have been persistent since the release of AMD's RX 6000 GPUs, and the RX 6900 XT is sold out practically everywhere. There are a bunch available at obscene prices, but those are posted by scalpers and are best avoided unless you absolutely need a new card today. Our guide on where to buy AMD Radeon RX 6000 GPUs has more information on when and where to find the cards.

If we're making some suggestions, in stock or not, the XFX Speedster MERC319 RX 6900 XT is perhaps the best looking card out there, available at a lower price compared to plenty of the third-party options. The black and white design should fit in with most cases out there, and its three fans help keep it cool under load. It manages a boost clock up to 2,340MHz, and the core clock hits 1,925MHz. Have a bit more room in your budget? The Sapphire Nitro+ RX 6900 XT is a reliable option that's built well and able to deliver a high-end gaming experience.
