Recently my power supply was questionable, so I went to the local computer store (Memory Express) to pickup a replacement and I was shocked to discover very few units in stock. I did manage to pickup an EVGA 1000 P2 which their system said was out of stock.
I started wondering if PSUs were facing similar fate as GPUs, and so I put in a parts order with my rep. at Newegg for about 20 different EVGA PSUs and some of them were unavailable. Ok, weird.
Today I visited the memoryexpress.com website, and a message about Power Supply Shortages pops up as an alert.
Video Card & Power Supply Inventory Shortage
We would like to apologize to our loyal customers for the current inventory situation with video cards and power supply units (PSU). Our purchasing team are working diligently to secure as much inventory as possible but currently there is no confirmed eta, pricing and availability.
As such, we will be implementing several inventory measures to prioritize allocation for systems builds and upgrades.
We are currently unable to fill or accept any backorders for individual video cards. Online orders for individual videos cards will be disabled. Über Price Beat Guarantee and price protection will be disabled for all video cards and power supplies Inventory (when available), will be allocated for system builds and upgrades Limit of 1 video card and power supply per house hold per day Inter store transfers will be disabled until inventory normalizes These restrictions are temporary and will be lifted as the inventory situation improves. If you require a graphics card and/or power supply for a system build / upgrade please contact our stores directly. For online customers, please contact our websales team.
Again, we apologize for any inconveniences caused by this current situation. Thank-you for your patience and understanding.
Is this unique to ME and to my experience with Newegg, or is there really starting to be a PSU shortage?
