It’s no secret that Nvidia’s RTX 30 graphics cards are some of the most difficult high-ticket items to purchase right now. If you are still looking to get your hands on one of the latest Nvidia GPUs, Best Buy has announced that select locations will sell RTX 30 GPUs tomorrow.
Best Buy did not specify which RTX 30 graphics cards it would be selling, but it is likely that the retailer will have various RTX 30 cards such as the RTX 3060 and RTX 3080 available across different manufacturers such as EVGA and MSI.

115 Best Buy locations across the United States (including one location in Puerto Rico) will be selling limited quantities of Nvidia’s flagship GPU line. In an effort to make sure as many people as possible can purchase an RTX 30 card, Best Buy confirmed that each of the eligible retail stores would be enforcing a one-GPU-per-customer rule, with employees slated to begin handing out tickets at 7:30am local time. Acquiring a ticket guarantees you the opportunity to purchase an RTX 30 GPU inside the store when the doors open at 8am local time.
This marks the second time Best Buy will have sold Nvidia’s RTX 30 series cards in-stores. Last month, select Best Buy locations sold limited quantities of RTX 3080 Ti Founder’s Edition GPUs. Since its debut in late 2020, the sale of RTX 30 cards in retail chains like Best Buy have been handled primarily online.
