What you need to know

  • Arguably the oldest egg in town, Newegg, is at it again with another Newegg Shuffle.
  • Here's how it works: You tell Newegg what you want to buy, they tell you if you're allowed to buy it, then you have a limited amount of time to give them your money.
  • This time around, the shuffle has an emphasis on GPUs and DDR5 memory.

Still a participant in the endless, bloody battle for the best graphics cards? Have you seen the snow fall, pile up, melt, then fall again, having spent a year or more wondering when you'll finally get a GPU with which to play the widely beloved Square Enix game Marvel's Avengers on your PC? Newegg Shuffle is here for you.

If you're one of the "west coast best coast" crowd, then the shuffle kicks off at 8 a.m. PT and goes 'til 10 a.m. PT. That's your window to select what you want. Then, from 12 p.m. PT to 6 p.m. PT, Newegg will decide if you're worthy enough to purchase anything. If you are one of the chosen, then you have two hours from whenever Newegg pings you to cough up the money.

For those on the east coast, just add three hours to all those times. So your shuffle starts at 11 a.m. ET. But remember, this is all January 6, 2022! If you see this post on January 7, all hope's lost and you should probably give up on ever getting the components of your dreams (just kidding; keep an eye on our coverage and we'll let you know when more appear).

This Newegg Shuffle is all about GPUs and DDR5 memory, so if either of those are on your wishlist, prepare to camp out at your computer. That RTX 3060 isn't going to buy itself!
