If you're trying to build a PC these days, you probably want to find an RTX 30 series graphics card. You've probably also noticed that isn't so easy. At most retailers the cards are completely out of stock and getting bought up as soon as they come in. If you can find one somewhere, it's usually extremely overpriced. If you haven't gotten too far in your PC part buying, you might find some relief in antonline's collection of bundles that combine EVGA RTX 30 series cards with other essential parts, including processors and power supplies and more.
Let's be honest with each other for a second. If you're looking for an RTX 30 series graphics card, you're not looking for a deal or a discount. At this point you're looking for something that's in stock at all and as close to the MSRP as possible. Antonline's prices are about as good as it gets.
Take a look at the bundle that includes an EVGA RTX 3070 Ti 8GB FTW3 Ultra gaming graphics card. The card itself goes for $800 at MSRP. The included processor, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, goes for about $290. Altogether, if you were to buy the individual pieces of this bundle you'd spend about $1,270. Of course, you can't do that because the graphics card just isn't in stock anywhere. So you pay just $140 over that price and get it all right now. That's really not too bad considering you can find the same $800 card going for $1,200 by itself from other sellers on eBay.
The bundle including the EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 Ultra gaming graphics card is very much the same. Altogether, the individual pieces of this set would cost about $2,423 at current prices and assuming you could find the card at MSRP. Instead, you pay a total of $2,599.95 (just $177 over) and get a bunch of the pieces you need for a full build. A quick search on eBay shows the card by itself going for as much as $2,600.
Many of the bundles have already sold out, but if the one you really wanted isn't around keep checking back as I'm sure antonline will restock them as they become available.
