I just hope my 600W PSU is enough... it's gonna be close but I only have a I5 8400, the entire system only needs 60-70W so I don't see how a GPU could overload that, but we'll see that too.
The FE can use 320w.
750W required (their words, not mine)
A lower power rating may work depending on system configuration.
I bet you’re gonna be replacing that psu and you system is cpu limited.

All the new Nvidia 30xx series will be in short supply till next year because Nvidia does not have that many to release. Microcenter got 100 for all their stores. That works out to 4 per store with no information on when they are getting more of them. If you really have to have one I suggest you look on Ebay and open your wallet.

Remember to buy a POWERFUL and RELIABLE PSU with the RTX 3080. In a Crysis Remastered test, German game magazin PC Games Hardware ran into problems with their MSI RTX 3080. They had to exchange their Seasonic 750 watt PSU for a 1000 watt PSU and the problems were solved... So: yes. It needs power. LOTS AND LOTS of power.
Did they massively OC their (assuming they're running Intel) processor, or run some crazy test bench. 750w gold PS should be more than enough unless they've gone nuts with their setup, well beyond what an average consumer would do.
IIRC a "750 watt" power supply can't actually supply a stable 750 watts. It's always better to calculate what you need, and add about 20% to that when figuring out what watt power supply you should get.

I can never, ever, literally not ever, fathom why companies with billions of $ do not have the capacity to add a "pre-order" function to their fucking sites and make sure to meet that FIRST demand which is always there, except I know why. The 700$ price is a loss for Nvidia, I can already see the real price for the 3080 - 790€ ~ (which is 940$) and let's face it, there won't be any 3080s to buy for months.
There's probably corporate metrics floating around still, showing a net gain for the companies if they release a small amount to massive demand, then dribble more out over time. Especially for something like tech, where there is usually no direct competitor released at the same price/period. Nintendo did the same thing for the Nintendo Classic, they keep doing it for cell phones, etc. The huge problem for consumers is this directly encourages scalpers, let alone actually getting one of the item.
Also, it's probably cost prohibitive(in corporate eyes) to build up tens of millions of units in stock before the initial release day.

Or rather, let's talk about the fact that the last patch for MW5 was 6 months ago.... and to this day the game is completely broken, badly designed, has a memory leak and one of the shittiest spawning campaign AI's ever made in a game. Or basically, it really is a Piranha Bytes game.
