For the first time in over a year, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 is now hovering close to MSRP at several retailers, thanks to rapidly falling graphics card prices.
You can now pack yourself an EVGA XC Gaming variant for $ 389.99 in the US – only $ 50 more than the original MSRP for the card. Those across the UK can also get an Inno Twin LHR variant for £ 379.99, which is only £ 79 above the official suggested retail price.
While both of these listings are still above MSRP, together they represent what may be the best option in the last two years to take a decent 1080p card without breaking the bank. We are even without a doubt in the area where we are able to build yourself a decent budget gaming PC here – one that will easily maximize most games at 1080p for around $ 800 to $ 900, depending on your specifications.
Of course, if you already have a decent setup and want to upgrade from an RTX 2060 or a graphics card with similar power, then these lists are not quite as tempting. Many players are enduring an upgrade right now and that is not an unwise policy. Later this year, we were to see the release of the next generation of cards in the RTX 4000 series from Nvidia and Intel’s long awaited Arc series. Right now the details are thin (such as the release date), but we want the latest here on TechRadar as soon as more news comes out.
Cheap RTX 3060 lists finally return
Several GPUs are recharging this week
While we believe these RTX 3060 lists are without a doubt the best graphics card deals available this week, they are not the only ones available. Just the last day, Nvidia cryptically tweeted the announcement of a new Restocked and Reloaded page on its website. At the time of writing, all current stocks are around MSRP in the UK, but the tweet mentions that more stock will be available soon, making us hopeful for US listings.
