Zen 3 3070 and 3080 Gaming PCs [16GB 3200/B550 Aorus Elite/240NVME]: $1999 / $2348 + Shipping @ TechFast

Zen 3 CPU + RTX 3070 for $1999? Yeah, you do.. Our full, large allocations of Gigabyte and Galax cards have arrived already, as have much of our MSI allocation (which means existing orders are already shipping just 5 days from launch last week!)

Again coming in with a high spec, this deal is very similar to the Zen 2 deal starting at $1788 subbing in a Zen 3 CPU and a 240GB NVME for the 480GB SSD.

AMD Ryzen 5000 Series | RTX 3070 8GB Gaming PC: $1999 after 5600X-3070-LAUNCH

  • AMD Ryzen 5 5600X / Ryzen 7 5800X / Ryzen 9 5900X Processor. Note: the 5800X and 5900X now do not come with an AMD air cooler so a liquid cooler is required (no third party air coolers available at this time due to previous shipping damage issues)
  • Gigabyte Eagle RTX 3070 8GB (Galax and MSI also available)
  • Gigabyte B550 Aorus Elite motherboard (upgrades available)
  • 16GB 3200MHz RAM (brand/model may vary)
  • 240GB NVME m.2 SSD (brand/model may vary)
  • Gigabyte P650B 650W 80+ Bronze power supply (Gigabyte P750G and Aorus AP850G upgrades available)
  • MSI MAG Forge (others available)

Next is the Zen 3 chips with an RTX 3080 10GB, offered on preorder. We have GPUs on order, so this is offered for you to reserve your purchase of an RTX 3080 powered PC (brand/model may vary as per our regular business model) as soon as stocks become available. This price increase is because in the Zen 2 launch there was a CPU rebate which has ended, plus 3080 card prices have all been jacked.

Updates on existing orders

RTX 3070 Orders
As above these systems will start shipping from today, just 5 business days after launch. This should provide some insight into how significantly NVIDIA’s 3080 delays have affected the industry!

RTX 3080 Orders
A big number of MSI Ventus, Gigabyte Eagle and Gigabyte Gaming orders will be shipping early next week, while we have received dispatch notification from Galax so they should also be next week. We’ve prebuilt orders to minimise the time between card arrival and dispatch.

While this will account for a very good chunk of orders, based on information from manufacturers and their suppliers, we are officially in delay territory for the remainder and likely to beyond our general 14 business day estimate assuming the cards arrived worst case 31 October as an October card could have. Other Eagle and Ventus orders are most likely going to be shipping from halfway through November onwards. This is also the case for November card orders across all brands. This is 100% down to NVIDIA’s reference card manufacturing delays and their knock on effects which they have admitted to. We originally labelled our cards with months (e.g. September, October, November) based on advice from MSI/Giga/Galax and their suppliers when we placed our orders back in September, and we are pushing and pushing, but we and most other retailers are still waiting.

As a result, if you want to cancel your order, you may do so without any restocking fee, via email to support@techfast.com.au.

This is obviously disappointing, but my honest recommendation would be to hang in there, if you can. If you want a 3080, you may very well be leaving a position in our queue to join the end of another. 3080 prices have also been jacked due to no supply, so you’ve locked the absolute lowest possible pricing. And your cards will be coming, and your system will be prebuilt to minimise delay.

If you want a status update to see if your order is close to dispatch, please email sales@techfast.com.au and we’ll reply as soon as we can.

If you’re livid about the whole 3080 thing, please submit your thoughts to jensen@nvidia.com (freely visible on reddit btw).
