prices have severely skyrocketed in almost every store I've checked offline or online and thought about it, when will be a good time to build a pc?
That's open market, unless supply is grater than demand, prices don't drop, nobody is crazy enough to sell something for cheaper if he doesn't have to.prices have severely skyrocketed in almost every store I've checked offline or online and thought about it, when will be a good time to build a pc?
I’ve never actually looked at it that way. Thanks for the insight lolPlus, another issue that we failed to mention, although Mike touched on it with supply and demand, is that the DEMAND was exceptionally high for nearly a year and half while millions and millions of people, perhaps more like Billions, worldwide, were either stuck at home or having to work from home, which raised the demand for computers and other communication devices by orders of magnitude. The fact that many of the people normally working in the industries that supply those devices were also, by and large, also at home, so supply was a fraction of what it would normally have been and that's without factoring in any of the complications that have arisen from problems at various fabs and a lack of transport.
Likely it will literally take years for things to normalize, even somewhat.
Agreed. I simply wanted to state the issue on a smaller scale. I didn’t use any actual stat numbers, I just made a smaller example. But yes, the issue is much worse than that.Not sure where you are getting your numbers, but IMO the problem is a bit more severe than this would lead somebody to believe.
