The RTX 3060 is finally within reach with this week’s GPU price crash

For the first time in over a year, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 is now hovering close to the MSRP at many retailers, thanks to the rapid decline in graphics card prices.

You can now buy the EVGA XC Gaming Edition for $389.99 in the US – just $50 more than the card’s original MSRP. UK residents can also get the Inno Twin LHR variant for £379.99, which is just £79 more than the official recommended price.

Update (04/26): Unfortunately, Newegg’s listing above in the US has again gone up in prices. On the bright side, OCUK’s UK listing is still available at a reasonable price. The original article continues…

While these two lists are still higher than their MSRP, together they are probably the best opportunity in the past couple of years to carry a decent 1080p card without breaking the bank. We’re arguably in the area of ​​being able to build a decent gaming PC on a budget here – one that can easily maximize most games in 1080p for around $800 to $900, depending on your specs.

Of course, if you already have a decent setup and are looking to upgrade from an RTX 2060 or equivalent power graphics card, these lists aren’t exactly tempting. Many players are demanding an upgrade at the moment, and this is not an unwise policy. Later this year, we should see the release of the next generation of Nvidia’s RTX 4000 series cards and the much-anticipated Arc series from Intel. For now, details are thin on the ground (like the release date), but we’ll have the latest here at TechRadar as soon as more news comes out.

More GPU Restocking This Week

While we think these RTX 3060 lists are the best graphics card deals available this week, they aren’t the only ones available. Just last day, Nvidia tweeted an announcement of a new restocked and reloaded page on its website. As of this writing, all current restocks around the MSRP are in the UK, but the tweet notes that more stock will be available soon, which makes us hopeful on US listings.
