The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 was supposed to be a more affordable Ampere-based GPU but if you want to get your hands on a model it's probably best to wait a couple more months to avoid frustration. With shortages everywhere, and cryptocurrency miners buying up not only discrete video card but also laptops in bulk, it's a terrible time to buy a new video card.

The launch date of the RTX 3060 is set for February 25 but it's already certain this model will be tough to get at the official suggested retail price. VideoCardz writes European retailers are now listing the GeForce RTX 3060 at prices that are 50 percent above the MSRP!
Meanwhile, European retailer ProShop, which operates in a number of European countries, is already listing the cards at increased prices, before anyone even had a chance to order one at MSRP. Proshop now offers GeForce RTX 3060 at 499 EUR or 2799 PLN minimum. Official MSRP in Europe is 329 EUR or 1599 PLN. That’s a 52% and 75% increase over NVIDIA MSRP.
Curiously, the GeForce RTX 3060 and GeForce RTX 3060 Ti are now listed at almost the same prices. There are also all sorts of shenanigans going on, with some retailers hiking up prices and canceling pre-orders to force customers to reorder the card at a much higher price.
