Honestly what has this world come to. I'm ready to blast £2500 for parts yet I can't spend most of it because the most important are not available.

I can purchase a motherboard, RAM, SSD, PSU but except that for GPU nothing really makes sense, nor even for the CPU. 2080Ti is still crazy expensive and now outdated, RTX 30xx are not available, not even the 2070 Supers anymore. So what do you get, GTX 1660? CPU wise? 10900F? Maybe wait for Intel 11th gen, or the new Zens to become available?

So all I can do is to wait?

A snip at £1700!

Hmm... I wonder if I won the Lottery? :)
There's a couple going for £1500 at a well known tree based etailer. I'm in the same boat.. planning a build for a big bday and so far managed to secure a SFX psu and pre ordered the Lian li O11 mini. Had a 3070 delivered but decided I wanted the 3080 so now playing the same F5 page refresh game as everyone else

3090s are available, but you'll have to up your budget.
Pay twice the £ for 10 fps more? Seems a bit insane :rolleyes:
The Ryzen 9 5900X has the same performance as 10900F and is £100 more expensive.

That's what I mean, all of this makes no sense. Trying to be reasonable here.

Id rather wait until there is descent enough games to play at 60fps AND at 8k on a descent enough tv/monitor that doesnt cost A beamer. I walk pass the sony shop and i cant tell the difference.

SEGA to PS2 was a jump WITHOUT A DOUBT... but 1080p to 4K and 8K how can you tell the difference ? And at that price range ??? My depression begins to kick in when it looks abit too real anyway so whats the point ? . Who wants to really experience what senua did in the sacrifice
? lol
