I have basically given up on renewing my pc. The prices are absurd and I don't want to encourage that system.

I guess pc gaming will die off because of those prices.

Too many people are into PC gaming now and it has exploded since covid. The demand has NEVER been this high, and that is a big reason (but not the only reason) it is damn near impossible to find an affordable setup. The folks that are doing a complete setup have options for around $2k can get a 3000 series GPU.

The ones that are screwed are those that are looking for JUST the GPU...

In time, production will meet demand on all of these things. Until then we have to deal with inflated costs. My hope is that once production and demand normalizes that the MSPRs will decrease. I doubt that that will happen anytime soon. It's pretty unlikely that nVidia, Intel, ASUS, MSI, AMD, etc... dropped the initial MSRPs on new items....
