I live in the Columbus area (hour and half round trip to Microcenter though) and wanted to see what is a good strategy at just buying a midrange GPU ($200-$500). In these times, it seems its best to not be picky, haha (1660, 2060, etc.). I am replacing an R7 370 (that was an XFX warranty replacement many years ago for a 5850).
How is the supply of midrange GPU's at the Columbus Microcenter?
Is everything perpetually out of stock for all cards except low end?
I realize the store opens at 10am. Certain days of week better than others, should I show up a couple hours or more before opening?
Thank you for any help for just an average joe consumer who's last "real" GPU I purchased was almost 16 years ago when I had the 8800Ultra, lol. I think I saw that card going for over $100 on ebay, it must be real bad out there!!!
Thank you for posting on the Micro Center Community! I recommend taking a look at this; https://community.microcenter.com/kb/articles/245-limited-availability-product-launch-faq for general information on getting a card.
We generally do not receive stock on weekends and from what I see when I do go in, I do occasionally see one or a few 1600 series card that haven't been picked up.
