Out of the Blue

We finally got the roadside assistance guy out to jumpstart MrsBlue's dead car, so it was homeside assistance in this case. He got it started, and confirmed what we suspected, that the battery was basically shot. So rather than let it idle to try and recharge the battery, I just drove it to the auto parts store and replaced the battery. It's now working right again, and it's nice to have confidence in it, especially in winter weather. Thankfully it died in front of our house where it was easy enough to deal with, rather than leaving us stranded somewhere.

I managed to get a 3070 ordered on Amazon today. I'm not getting my hopes up until it ships after they canceled my 3080 order yesterday.

Holy shit, you were actually able to place an order for a 3080 and a 3070!? And possibly actually receive a 3070!? From Amazon.. amazing. anytime I look(which admittedly, is not often) they are all sold out, even third party sellers.

I got my 3080 last week, direct from EVGA. I was on their notify queue since late October. Finally got my email on Monday, and received the card the next day (hell yeah I paid for overnight!). Was up and running for my Wednesday night GTA online game with my crew. I posted some photos and before/after benchmarks here: https://www.pcabusers.org/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=64703&p=373314#p373314

I'd recommend anyone looking for a card register for auto notify on EVGA's online store. If you find a card before they notify you, then just pass on it. They have the best system to beat the scalpers. I had 8 hours after receiving the email to buy the card, or it got offered to the next person in the queue.
