First try ‘n Post on the Newegg Shuffle was a couple weeks ago. It was one of the usual Combo Deals involving the purchase of two products. That first try was for a  EVGA GeForce® RTX 3060 12GB – PLUS – a full modular power supply…not bad, i.e. both were about $512.

      • UPDATE: Newegg – You Weren’t Selected Oh well…they let me know quicker this time, which is good!

Of course, I want the NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition, but the 2 fan versions are rarer than hens teeth.

There are two EVGA GeForce® RTX 3060 12GB versions, the 12G-P5-3657-KR (that I entered contest for) and the 12G-P5-3655-KR. Best I can tell they are the same other than slightly larger Boost Clock on the 12G-P5-3657-KR.

Have read where some 100,000 people enter the raffle, but it doesn’t actually say how many products are being raffled.

Last time Newegg let me know close to 11:00 PM EST that I lost, and that’s hour to hour ‘n half past my normal bedtime (roughly). If you win, there is a brief window where you can buy the product, and if you miss that window you’re outta of it.

I had to edit that notice with Adobe Photoshop Express and GIMP – cut it down w/ Express ‘n pasted the two halves together w/ GIMP – because it was super wide.

Durn GeForce 1050 Ti can cost that or more now, so $399.99 is a steal during these shortages!

LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
