No mention of enthusiasts no longer being enthusiastic over CPU/GPU vendors enthusiasm for price gauging, nor how the collapse of crypto (please... Someone make it stop - crypto I mean, not it's long overdue collapse) has reduced if not removed the need for higher end components having to be acquired by purchasing a whole pre-built machine?

(For a while the best way of buying a 3080 or 3090 was to buy a dell/lenovo and then flog the now gpu-less computer since it was less than what scalpers were asking).
