    Re: 3000 founders edition cards UK

    I like the look of the FE cards and would love a 3080FE even if it was £100 higher. Just a shame about the supply. It doesn't seem that Scan will be getting a delivery this week. Had all my hopes for a drop yesterday but sadly didn't happen. Will keep my fingers crossed.

    I'm still hoping for a 3080, but the 3060Ti will have to do for now, if I get a 3080 I'll stick the 3060 on here..

    Also looking for a 3080FE.
    A mate of mine recommended the discord channel and helped get me setup on it as never used it before.
    Now have it on in background when working and drop everything when I hear a ping. Sadly I'm not fast enough. Tho after reading this thread I've picked up some useful tips. Thanks guys.

    Re: 3000 founders edition cards UK

    Interesting video suggesting that if you have a 1070 / 1080 / 1080ti, there's relatively limited value in upgrading to a 30-series, even if there weren't stock shortages.

    Got declined every time I tried to get 3080FE today Could well be to do with the fact I had 3070 already.

    Re: 3000 founders edition cards UK

    I heard they are checking, so same address, IP etc might be why, I tried to get one but missed the message from a friend so by the time I got in and had changed to the secondary internet connection and changed browser it was saying out of stock :/
    I'll get a VM on the test network at work setup ready to go for next time though lol

    Good luck lol, I was working from home, changed to my PC screen a minute before the drop almost like I knew, clicked immediately and checked out within 30 seconds, got declined the first time. Button re-appeared couple more and got declined again. Will try another form of payment next time (was using guest checkout). Guessing my address might not be eligible for one but that 3070 was just meant to be temporary solution

    Same here

    Came home from a little bit of essentials shopping only to see the PC alerts lit up flashing like crazy.

    But I was just a little too slow!

    Better luck to us all next time

    Re: 3000 founders edition cards UK

    I managed to grab one yesterday after trying for about 2 months. Can't fault Scan, it was delivered this morning just after 8am.
    I used Amazon Pay for checkout, as I thought it might be quickest, but didn't realise that it would mean that I got charged for delivery. Hey-ho, it's only an extra tenner, still significantly cheaper than all the 3rd party cards.

    Re: 3000 founders edition cards UK

    If it helps anyone, I used alerts from Part Alert and UK Stock Alert, both from their Twitter and Discord channels. In my experience, sometimes Part Alert would be quickest, other times UK Stock Alert. And there was no pattern as to whether the Twitter or Discord alert would come through first, so I ended up by trying to cover all the bases.

    Re: 3000 founders edition cards UK

    Yeah, I used both those, just the discord though. I only started using them a couple of weeks back, so I consider that a good result.
