    I bought a 2070 for 436 after tax, brand new right before the 3000 series came out, my discord buddies thought it was stupid and to get a $500 3070 instead. I think I played my cards right.

    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.

    This shortage isn’t just crypto. All computer components are short supply including CPUs which aren’t used for mining. This is more Covid related since demand for all PC components has gone up like 25% at least in the last year.

    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.

    Honestly because of the markets current state, it would be easier to buy a cheap pre-built with a good card and use the card on your old system. If you don’t have an old system getting a decent prebuilt would be easier and less expensive

    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 have an i9 11900K 12GB RTX 3090 system on order atm, due next month. 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.

    Having built PC's since my first 386 around 1985, I have along the way bought pre-mades and built my own system over the years depending on desire, time constraint and just plain laziness. There are indeed benifits to both. For a first time user I would highly recommend building your own, if possible with a tech savy friend watching over you and walk you through it. Not only will it give you more confidence to keep building them but you'll get to learn what's basically 'under the hood' of a PC and well, you'll see how dead easy it actually is to build one (costum watercooling loops not included, those still scare the s#§t out of me :p ) It will also allow you to upgrade better. I've found that premade's usually use a PSU that is just enough to run the system with not enough room left to spare. Sure bunging in a extra drive or two should be oke but upgrading your GPU might include having to replace the PSU too. Pre-builts have the advantage of just basically being plug and play and if you don't mind and can afford regularly replacing the entire system to keep up to date I'd say it's an option. Still, nothing beats the feeling you get from seeing a PC you built from scratch boot up for the first time.

      @Mr Anderson Oh, I know hence why I said : "and well, you'll see how dead easy it actually is to build one" Using computers is not nearly as scary at times as back then. My Commodore 64 didn't have a reset button (atleast not in the it's early days) so if you wanted to reset it and keep the memory mapping to find cheats and hacks in a game you had to use a paper clip to connect to lanes on the exposed circuit board of it's expansion port... I witnessed a few friend hit the wrong lanes and well, it was quite spectacular to say the least :)

    Buying a prebuild seems to be the only reliable way to obtain a modern GPU without paying scalpers. As a person who builds their own systems I refuse to buy into this scheme. I don't want sub par components that are overpriced just so I can get the GPU I want. I blame the manufacturers and system integrators for the longevity of the scarcity. They are not helping to fix supply and demand with their current practices.

    This is the route I'm gunna take. I own a prebuilt from the 2500k days with a gtx960 2g and my laptops 1050ti isn't cutting it anymore either. So i thought I'll build my own this time and save a few bucks and then saw the gpu shortage and waiting times.
