The RTX 4090 is already sold out. Here’s how you can still get one

The RTX 4090 is the best graphics card you can buy right now — just read our RTX 4090 review. And that, unfortunately, means it’s very popular. At retailers, most (if not all) RTX 4090 models are sold out.

But there is still a way to buy an RTX 4090.

Origin PC has announced that it’s offering the RTX 4090 as an option for several of its configurable gaming desktops, and they’re still available. You’ll need to buy an entire system around the graphics card, but Origin offers the latest hardware available today. Machines already ship with CPUs like the Ryzen 9 7950X, and Origin offers Intel’s 13th generation processors (though you’ll have to wait until those CPUs are actually announced before your machine ships).

As you can read in our full Origin Neuron review, it’s one of the better gaming desktops you can buy. While you’ll save some money by building your own gaming PC, we called the Neuron a “premium-worthy turnkey” in our review. It uses standard, off-the-shelf parts, so you can always upgrade the machine in the future.

Origin is not the only option either. Maingear also has the RTX 4090 available as an option for its Vybe desktop. It’s a bit more expensive than the Origin Neuron, but we still rated the pre-built highly in our Maingear Vybe review — and just like the Origin, the Maingear also has the latest Ryzen 7000 processors and 13th Gen Intel chips available.

CLX has the RTX 4090 for its desktops as well, including the small form factor CLX Scarab. If you want something a little more premium, Falcon Northwest has an RTX 4090 available in its Talon desktop. Unfortunately, the RTX 4090 is not available in the excellent small form factor Falcon Northwest Tiki (the GPU is simply too big).

Bigger brands like Alienware and Acer still haven’t updated their desktops with the RTX 4090. Even the Asus ROG GA35 isn’t available with the RTX 4090 yet, despite the fact that Asus sells more RTX 4090 models. These bigger brands tend to be slower to launch new hardware , so you better check with system integrators like Origin PC and Maingear if you want to pick up the RTX 4090 at launch.

While the RTX 4090 is simply the best graphics card you can buy right now, it carries a hefty premium. We checked the prices of all the above brands and for most of them you’re looking at about $1,600 more than the base model. The only exceptions are the Origin PC and the Falcon Northwest, both of which charge about $1,400 more than the base price.

However, if you don’t need a full system, it’s best to wait. The RTX 4090 is in high demand, sure, but there’s no reason to believe it will cause a new GPU shortage. Additionally, Nvidia is releasing two RTX 4080 models in November, and AMD is set to launch its next-generation RX 7000 GPU on November 3rd.

However, if you just can’t wait, there are ways to buy an RTX 4090 — you just might have to choose a system around it.
