Hi, I'm planning on doing my first build and have been told to aim for a RTX 3070 GPU rather than a higher end 20 series. From what I've heard about the 3080 release, it'll be almost impossible to get a 3070 on release, is this true?

I live in the UK and can see that the release will be around 2 pm on the 29th, if it's unlikely that I'm able to get a founder card directly from Nvidia will there be any serious difference with me getting a 3rd party card from overclockers/currys etc?

Also would a 3070 be able to run with a Ryzen 7 3700X and a 650W 80+ Gold PSU? I've heard this would be the minimum PSU.

Any advice would be really appreciated as I'm very new to this!

KFA2 is the euro brand of GALAX I think mindfactory and others sell them. 650W PSU is min but i would recommend a higher wattage so you have some breathing room.
