Pre-built PCs are a great way to get a powerful GPU that's difficult to purchase on its own.
What you need to know
- The NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti is already sold out at several online retailers.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti went on sale today and has already sold out at several retailers. You may still have a chance to grab one on its own at Best Buy in person, but if you want to order one online, you may have to go a different route. Pre-built PC makers, such as CyberPowerPC, have builds available with the RTX 3080 Ti inside.
If you haven't read up on the RTX 3080 Ti yet, make sure to catch up with our post covering its announcement.
Granted, purchasing a pre-built PC will cost more than you were planning to spend if you were only in the market for a GPU, but if you were already shopping for a new PC, it could be a great way to get one of the best GPUs on the market.
Pre-built PCs with the RTX 3080 Ti inside appear to start at $3,359 through CyberPowerPC. The build with that price comes with an Intel Core i9-11900KF processor and 16GB of DDR4 3000MHz RAM. If you prefer to go with an AMD processor, there's the Gamer Master 9500, which starts at $3,535 with the RTX 3080 Ti inside. That PC comes with an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor and also has 16GB of DDR4 3000MHz RAM.
Note that the estimated shipping date for these PCs is July 2, 2021, so you'll have to wait some time to get them.
At the time of publication, only CyberPowerPC appears to have pre-built PCs with the RTX 3080 Ti in stock, but we'll update this article if we find more options.
