Currently amused at the irate people on Birdsite accusing PC component retailers of “price gouging” when they raise the prices on their RTX 3080 when it flies off the shelves. At what point did a high end graphics card become a necessity? Nobody is forcing you to buy it - and you don’t need it to live. If the price is too high, don’t buy it.
@naxxfish meanwhile, there are those of us who still use GT9xx graphics for playing games.
I'm so glad I never bothered to board that upgrade train, using "older" video cards that were priced like computer parts and not like actual computers.
