I've been waiting to get a high end graphics card for like 6 months now and haven't seen any opportunity too. And was wondering if there's an easier way of doing so??? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

You can get one right now on EBay, you just have to pay a premium.

The nvidia cards have quite a markup, but the AMD cards are not as high.

You will pay a lot, but you will have one.

I had plans to build a cheap gaming PC for TV gaming, but the prices on even the old cards are just outrageous. I've been out of the loop for a while. What's going on? Is it bots scoping them all up like the playstations? Or shortages due to Covid or something? Why can't they let you just order one, and then when it's available they ship it out to you, even if it's a few months from now? At least then you know you're on the list... So needless to say, won't be building a new pc anytime soon...

It's pretty much the perfect storm. Covid, Chip shortages, Miners, and scalper bots. I don't think things will normalize anytime soon, so put up with what you have or keep checking the used market.

I always owned low-end GPUs after I build my first PC then GPU SHORTAGE! and now I am stuck with the super cheap options since gtx 1050 ti costs 300 euros just barely my current budget and is not worth it I prefer to buy a midrange with 300 euros this is just BS man! I barely run MSFS 2020 and can't even run cyberpunk 2077 (and not the newly released resident evil 8) and that's for more than 6 mouths wtf and the worst part is I am using an old intel LGA 1551 socket and yes despite seems good it has worse integrated graphics than my current GPU(gt 1030) its not AM4 (amd) so I can install an APU with good graphics LGA 1200 isn't a cheap option either...
