    There should be some form of taxation for People who buy a bunch of the same product, especially pc parts and other things that are supposed to last for a while. Something like this would have also prevented the stupid hoarding at the start of the pandemic. Oh, you wanna buy 8 packs of the same product in a go? This product that is supposed to last you at least weeks? Good. Pay up 50% extra.

    I had all my parts to rebuild but a GPU in 2020 because I was waiting for 30 series. Biggest mistake ever. My 760 isn’t cutting it so I went on eBay and got a nice 980ti to tide me over for a while longer. It runs what I want it with my CPU nicely and that’s all I really can ask for with the state of the market right now

    I bought a prebuild with a ryzen 7 pro 4750g and no gpu. I wasn't able to find a graphics card on a normal price and I'm not talking about a 3000series card, I wanted something around a 1080. I wasn't able to find ryzen 5 apus nor the new 4000 apus, until I found a prebuild deal with a price really close to what I would pay for it if I bought it by parts. I'm okay with my purchase, i'll wait and safe my money until we are able to buy gpus again, if ever. Good luck everybody.

    Graphics card manufacturers need to put their prices UP. No joke. That allows them to invest in production and increase the supply. The increase in supply will eventually drive the price down and do it faster. At the moment, scalpers are the ones profiting because people are buying them at ridiculous prices and pocketing the money and nothing is going to increase the production. Supply and demand is a law. Be careful to those who attack companies who do put the price up. It has backfired.

    Buying an Origin PC $3500(before tax) 😔 checked the price and it's like $500-800 overpriced. Rtx 3070 & i-9, 32GB ram and 2TB I could build a way better PC and it'll still be cheaper than Origin's. I found all the parts on amazon, best buy and Corsair's site but I don't want to deal with the stress of finding thr Nvidia rtx 3070/3080

    $1500 later, I have a super nice intel i9-9900k with the best parts I could get, but NO GPU....I just have regrets and regrets over regrets. All that spent to be able to do some video graphic work, and can't even work with it. Just pathetic, PATHETIC! I could have definitely wasted my money else where, if I was to have a computer that led me do be stuck with the same as I had 7 years ago. Plus our stupid Quebec PM Legeault thinks he is super smart to close all computers stores because ''Ohh covid! let's close all stores including computers stores! the Quebec government want you to work from home, but hey, screw you if you have problems with your computer, you will wait till it reopens, sometimes, but we don't know when'' (This is the stuppidest I tell ya, no where to buy computer parts physically other than in Ontario or online) Like if computer support was only for government workers...estupidos). I tell you, Quebec province in Canada have the most moronous laws in Canada, always. At least the Ontario got the clue that if they want you to work on your computer, they must leave computer stores opened. What a shame!

    Well Redux isn't selling their cards for MSRP, they are cheaper than scalpers but they still have a $350 mark up on the 3060Ti... Not saying given the time's it's not a good deal though, just wish Bitcoin would crash or something so we could go back to normal graphic card prices.

    Ive got all the parts but a cpu, GPU and ram to finish my first ever PC build, started this way back in November and I didn't think the graphics card shortage would go on this long 😭. Is there a good lower end GPU i can use to just to get my system built and running so i can use it for basic stuff and watching netflix while i wait for the GPU market to normalize? I was planning on running an AMD 3700x which i dont believe has integrated graphics?

    Bought a HP Omen 30L with an i7 10700k with an RTX 3070, good fans, and actually good AIO, 1TB NVME, nice basic motherboard, WIFI6, cooler master psu, RGB, and 16GB of ram that’s hyperx. Returned my Alienware m15 R3 2070 super max P at micro center and I exchanged it for the omen that day. No regrets at all. Only thing I’m going to do is change the case and maybe get a 240mm AIO but not sure yet. Blessed to have it cause I had no idea how bad things actually were.

    I bought 3 pre-built for our office solidworks stations. Ibuypower, cyberpower and skytech. The skytech had best build quality, high end parts but slightly less stats that I could find with cyberpower which is second all around. Ibuypower had a sick amd rig. But it showed up a little rougher with video card not even properly fit. No foam inside to protect it and the case is a bit of a pain. But its fast.

    I build my own pc every 5 years or so, just last year towards the end I got my new parts in, (I know it ain't big or shinny what I got but I went from potato pc to what I've got now), the parts are a Ryzen 7 3700x, Asus ROG Strix b450 f mobo, 16GB corsair vengeance LPX (used to have only 8 so that's BIG for me), a RM550x power supply(750w), and a generic case that the parts fit in. I kept my old ssd and hdd since they were just fine for me. Wanting to upgrade down the line anyway. The thing I didn't buy was also (because I had just so much I could spend sadly) was a new gpu, and looking at the prices now I'm pissed that I didn't just ask someone to borrow me the money and got at least a 2070 or 2080, now I'm stuck with a 1060, which is not a bad card for the games I play, but you know, kinda hurts to see all that better stuff in there and then having that card. Plans are to upgrade from the stock cpu cooling to water cooling and to replace my storage with a 1tb m.2 drive and also prolly get a bigger/better case. Good that at least that those are still easy to get and fairly cheap. Gonna have to wait a year or so for an affordable gpu tho sadly.

    Haha yep... Even my local shops have the 3090's listed for more than $4,000 AND they are NOT in stock! There is no way I'm paying that much for a graphics card. I will say that a pre-built is actually starting to sound really good right about now, since I do have a full system without a graphics card 😕 I'll just sell the rest of the parts I guess and recoup some of the cash. Might as well do a CPU and RAM upgrade on the pre-built while I'm at it 🤷‍♂️ since I bought my parts last year during Christmas, but couldn't get a graphics card...

    This year was suppose to be my year to upgrade my GPU. I have been rocking my 970 since 2015. After endlessly searching for a 20/30 series deal.. I finally bit the bullet and just bought a used 1080 and I just plan to wait out this crap. I think one thing you could of mentioned was possibly buying used older generation cards and just wait this storm out. I was able to sell my 2 970s(I bought another 970 last year when I upgraded my cpu/mobo) and I only ended up paying a little over 100 to get my 1080. I also looked at the prebuilt route, but I just didn't wanna pull the trigger on that because the rest of my computer is still great and able to handle anything I throw at it.

I used to build my own, but... we are only talking saving a few £100, and you don't get a warranty, and when you factor in my time its just not worth it. You can be very specific on what parts go into the system when you spec the system from a builder. In these times, pre-built systems are even more attractive because I just wouldn't be able to get the parts to build my own.
