Day 2 of the RTX 4090 launch period hasn’t been quite as bountiful as yesterday was, although waves of stock have periodically become available across several major storefronts. As always, stay vigilant and frequently refresh each store page to give yourself the best chance of snagging a GPU when fresh supply becomes available.
We’d also like to remind everyone looking for a 4090 to make sure that they’re logged into each retailer’s website and have their payment and shipping information saved. This way, if you’re lucky enough to snatch a card when stock is available, you can checkout as quickly as possible and secure your order before anyone else beats you to the punch. Good luck and good hunting. — Brendan Lowry
Can’t find an RTX 4090? Consider getting one of NVIDIA’s 30 Series GPUs
While the RTX 4090 is unquestionably the most powerful GPU on the market right now, that doesn’t mean that you need one in order to have a great gaming experience. Several of NVIDIA’s previous generation 30 series cards like the RTX 3080 Ti, 3090, and 3090 Ti are all great for 4K gaming, too, and if you’re willing to drop down into the 1440p range, the RTX 3070 and 3070 Ti are fantastic as well.
There’s plenty of 30 series stock available, and for the first time in years, many of these GPUs are actually available at prices that are close to or even below MSRP (imagine that!). If you’re struggling to get an RTX 4090, it’s not a bad idea to go with one of its predecessors.
In the list below, we’ve linked some great 30 series GPUs that are fully in stock and available to purchase now. You should also check out our roundup of all the best graphics card deals, as we always keep it updated with the best deals we find. — Brendan Lowry
What about the UK? Well, so far there are no sightings of cards to be had sadly. But that doesn’t mean RTX 4090 stock won’t reappear at some point today or perhaps over the weekend.
We are expecting more and more pre-built PCs to appear though. There’s just the one over at Ebuyer so far and considering it’s £4999, it’s got a bit of grunt to it besides the RTX 4090. You also get a 12th-gen i9 processor, 32GB DDR5 RAM, and a 4TB SSD. There’s also a three-year warranty included (one year parts, three years labor) to ease the sticker shock a little.
Even so, that’s a lot of money upfront. And given that’s the only pre-built rig (and card!) around at the moment, Ebuyer can kinda charge what they want. We’d consider just holding on a little and seeing what other pre-builts appear before biting on this one.
Ok, so after a quick sweep of the US retailers this morning there isn’t a lot to choose from. Third-party merchants have started to appear on Newegg – you know where this is going right?- and you can pick up a Zotac Gaming RTX 4090 Trinity card for a whopping $2249.99. Of course, that’s something of a predatory price to say the least. Don’t buy that unless you really have to have the fancy cooling and RGB, better priced options will come back around.
If you don’t mind waiting, B&H Photo has a near identical Zotac RTX 4090 card available to preorder for a much more sensible $1649.99. There’s no shipping date, but unlike all the other entries for the RTX 4090 on the store at the moment, the preorder button is still live and you can complete the transaction, so it feels like a good chance. And hell, if you get lucky elsewhere before this one ships, just cancel it.
Day 1 of the RTX 4090 launch has officially ended, and nearly all retailers selling the card have depleted their stock. But fear not! After several years of scalpers dominating the GPU market due to low supply, things have finally stabilized this year (for the most part, anyway). As a result, consumers should expect to have an easier time finding new graphics cards like the RTX 4090 in the coming days, weeks, and months post-launch.
Even though most storefronts are out of stock at the moment, you should still keep an eye on all of the listings we’ve highlighted in this live blog. Fresh waves of RTX 4090s are likely coming soon to meet the PC gaming community’s ravenous demand for the GPU, so as always, don’t give up and keep on refreshing.
Notably, Newegg still has the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 4090 Trinity available at the time of writing. It’s quite pricey at $2,250, but it’s also a very elite version of the card with advanced cooling, RGB lighting, and more. If you’re still looking for an RTX 4090 and don’t mind paying extra for a premium board partner version of it, don’t miss out on this chance to snag one! — Brendan Lowry
Several of the listings for RTX 4090-equipped pre-built gaming PCs at U.S. retailers we found earlier in the day have now gone live, and the PCs can be ordered now. While a few of them have sold out quickly, many of them are surprisingly still available and in stock.
If you’re having trouble finding a standalone RTX 4090 GPU, going with a pre-built system is a fantastic alternative. While they’re generally more expensive than what it would cost to buy PC parts separately and put a rig together yourself, you won’t have to worry about the hassle of building your PC and can get gaming as soon as the computer arrives at your doorstep.
Below, you’ll find a list of all the pre-built RTX 4090 gaming PCs still in stock at the time of writing, including some that will ship with Intel’s upcoming 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs. Get them before they’re gone! — Brendan Lowry
We’re well into the RTX 4090’s launch period now, and as a result, it’s getting harder and harder to find available stock of the beastly GPU. With that said, you shouldn’t give up, as many retailers are making their inventory available in incremental waves. Even if a storefront says it’s sold out or out of stock now, a fresh batch of cards could become available soon. Keep refreshing, and make sure that you have all of your payment and shipping information saved so you can checkout as fast as possible if you’re able to snag an RTX 4090 from a new wave.
Notably, the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 4090 Trinity OC variant of the card remains available for preorder at B&H at the time of writing. If you’ve yet to secure a GPU, this preorder opportunity might just be exactly what you need to seal the deal. — Brendan Lowry

If you’re in the UK, there are currently two retailers so far who have RTX 4090 stock available to buy:
Next up is Best Buy! Here are all the listings for the mighty RTX 4090:
Some are sold out already so act fast if you want to secure an RTX 4090!
The NVIDIA RTX 4090 is officially available right now! NVIDIA announced on Twitter the availability of the flagship RTX 40 graphics card. To kick things off, we’ve spotted countless live NVIDIA RTX 4090 graphics cards listings on Newegg:
So we’re expecting stock to come online in just under 90 minutes’ time now, but that’s still far from confirmed. Our advice though, if you’d be happy buying from any of the stores above, is get everything else ready.
Get yourself signed in, make sure your payment and delivery details are already entered on your account to make the transaction as quick and as smooth as possible if you’re able to get an RTX 4090 into your basket.
We’ve seen plenty of retailer sites struggle and crash during launch events like this, so the less time you have to spend entering information and loading new screens, the better. If you picked up a GPU or next-gen console in recent times, you may well be aware of what we’re talking about here.
That, or it’ll be easy because nobody can afford a damn $1600 GPU right now!
NVIDIA is launching the mighty GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card today and it’s quite literally larger than the Xbox Series S. The price could also be considered colossal, starting at an MSRP of $1,599, but so too is the performance with NVIDIA claiming this graphics card could be used for stable (and enjoyable) 8K gaming.
We’ve had some serious issues with the supply of graphics cards in recent years, but there should be better availability of this new flagship GPU from launch later today. Here, on this live blog, you’ll see contributions from Senior Editors Cale Hunt and Richard Edmonds, as well as other Windows Central staff, as we cover the launch.
