What is the price of an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti?

With an MSRP of $1,999, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is one of the most expensive graphics cards ever launched by Nvidia. However, in the time since its launch, it can now be had for much less but availability of new stock is hard to come by.

Given the age of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, you’re unlikely to find much in the way of brand-new listings. As such, those that remain will retain higher prices given their limited availability, so you can expect to pay anywhere in the region of $1,500. For that kind of money, though, the GeForce RTX 4090 is a much better buy.

At the time of writing, used GeForce RTX 3090 Ti models are available for less than $1,000, making them a much more palatable buy. That said, the GeForce RTX 4080 Super will likely push prices down further. So, if you’re dead set on purchasing one, it may be worth waiting a while longer before splashing your cash.
