Graphics card availability?

Hello people. Does anyone have an idea of when a AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Graphics Card (or anything that would work with my iMac, even the 5000 series) might be available? I desperately need one so I can (hopefully) use redshift in Cinema 4D on my iMac. Last week I had a live chat with Kaleb, from South Dakota, who was very helpful. He told me to check the site on Thursday between around 11:30 - 3:00, and that for the previous two Thursdays the site was restocked at around the same time. So I checked, and they did become available at around 1pm, but I couldn’t get one. I think the site was overloaded with users. So today I tried again. I sat at my computer and refreshed the page every 20 seconds for 4 hours. All this week I’ve been checking the site to see if the chat might become available. And it never did. Does anyone know, is there a certain day of the week when the site might be restocked? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

No, if seriously, i think there is just no other way, just to have  some luck, same story if you want to buy some ticket on rock concert or etc. if you are lucky you will buy it if not you will see a broken website's page.

Right, but, with no clue whatsoever as to when things might become available, should we just sit at the computer refreshing the page all day? 5-6 days a week?

I'm pretty sure I've been perma banned from their website for refreshing so much at every drop... I click the add to cart button and it doesn't do a thing for me.

Re: Graphics card availability?

Really? Can I ask, how do you know there was a drop? Do you know what time it was?

AMD changes the drop day and time, so only scalpers and other bot users are able to buy cards with reasonable money and make money selling them. Legit gamers have about ZERO change getting a card. It's so utterly brilliant.

Yup thats the truth, if only they could make a queue for Red Team members like EVGA does for its users then we could wait patiently without all the stress for our carts but instead they make it a disappointing rat race where only the scalpers and miners win.
