I think it's just dead for 2021. I don't wanna tell others what to do or downplay their passions, but speaking for myself, I'm focusing on other hobbies until PC hardware sorts itself out. Who knows, maybe this will even benefit hardware in the long run.

I was looking at a 6800XT yesterday as if I could find one then I would have the money for it, if they were not heavily overpriced.


I looked on PCPartpicker because it shows the price history and looked at the Sapphire Reference one, at OCUK it was £693 until Thursday when they decided to ramp the price up to £800.


Yeah I am not interested anymore in getting a new card, I will wait until the scalpers and shops like OCUK have stopped price gouging.


I need to get a HOTAS as well, and the X56 is the one I am looking at and they are suffering from price gouging on Ebay whilst out of stock at most shops.


I am getting closer and closer to just selling my pc's and buying an Xbox if this price gouging keeps going on with PC Parts and peripherals.

Smart thing to do. Game developers will still continue to cater to those who are 1,2,3 or 4 generations behind with their CPU or GPU. Meaning your current gear is good to go for a long time.

Im still on a 7700k and its still rocking strong at 4.9Ghz. Id only upgrade because I wanted to, not because I need to. Im sure the only thing im missing with current gen is the obnoxious A-RGB.

My brother who's a far bigger gamer than me is stuck with a GTX 970 and was waiting for the 3060 before playing Cyberpunk. I thought about swapping cards with him so he could play it on my GTX 1080. It's enough for 1080p/60hz; just no RT.
