We’re hoping that finding where to buy the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 will be a lot easier than trying to find other Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards. But being aimed squarely at the middle of the market and gamers looking to upgrade from the GeForce GTX 1060, the GeForce RTX 3060 is a pretty enticing card.
Launching at a cheaper price point than the GeForce RTX 2060, Nvidia could well be onto a winner here. Compared to the GTX 1060, the RTX 3060 has twice the raster performance and 10x the ray tracing ability. Plus, it has 3,584 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR6 video memory, a boost clock speed of 1.78GHz, and a 192-bit memory interface.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060: Latest stock updates
Unfortunately with the well-documented global chip shortage set to continue indefinitely finding where to buy the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 in the wild might be just as tough a task as picking up its more powerful siblings the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080. In fact, we’ve even seen scalpers hiking up the price of the card before the actual release day, and if that wasn’t bad enough actual retailers seem to be overinflating prices as well.
Nvidia is making some attempts to tackle the serious supply issues facing the RTX 30-series but there’s still a long way to go before you’ll be able to buy GPUs like the RTX 3060 without needing lightning-fast fingers and no small amount of good fortune.
This is frustrating because with an MSRP of $329 the RTX 3060 is a really great GPU for those looking for mid-range performance. So, in order to help give you the best possible chance of scoring yourself one of these coveted cards, we’ve prepared this list of retailers that stock, or have previously stock, the GPU.
If there is a restock odds are the fresh allocation will go in minutes, so we recommend signing up to an alert service if the retailer’s sign support it. We’re also on the hunt for stock every day and will update the list below if we catch any restocks. For now, here’s a list of the best retailers to buy the RTX 3060 from.

Where to buy Nvidia RTX 3060 gaming PC
If you’re desperate to get a GeForce RTX 3060, an alternative to buying the card itself is to get a pre-built PC with the GPU included.
This is a great solution if you’re looking to either upgrade your entire setup or if you’re entering the PC gaming scene for the first time.
Right now there aren’t any retailers offering pre-built rigs with the RTX 3060 already installed, but we expect this to change once the card is officially available for purchase.
Places like Origin PC, iBuyPower, and CyberPowerPC are worth keeping an eye on as once the RTX 3060 is on the market these retailers will likely offer pre-built PCs that include it.
