If you’re hoping to buy the $499 RTX 3070, Nvidia tells us that you’ll be able to do that starting on Thursday, October 29th, at 9AM ET / 6AM PT. And instead of Nvidia directly selling its Founders Edition (FE) GPU through its online store, it has ceded its stock to Best Buy and Micro Center. If your hunt for the GPU isn’t limited to the FE version, several third-party graphics cards made by OEMs like Gigabyte and PNY will go on sale at the same time from a few other retailers like Amazon, Newegg, and B&H Photo, in addition to Best Buy and Micro Center.
