So I've been building liquid cooled computers for about 7 years or so, so I'm still a novice but taught myself through reading.. It isn't hard to do once you do it once but something of a feat for myself because I could have cared less in high school. Built my mom and sister a computer for way cheaper and better than they could have got it.
Anyways I've read many articles about why graphics cards are outrageously priced right now, few saying bitcoin mining (which is highly likely imo) to there is just more gamers. I wanted to bring this here and see what you guys/gals had to say because as is I am not seeing lower prices till at least April? I could post some articles but heck you get the same ones if you google them.

Tell me about it.
I had to buy a lower end card to finish a build until the prices come down or the new 20 series comes out (rumor says mid-summer). Until then, I refuse to pay outlandish prices, sometimes 2x manufacturer costs, for a GPU. It shouldn't cost half my budget for a decent card.
The Xbox One X's real upgrades are under the hood. It features an 8-core CPU running at 2.3Ghz, 12GB of GDDR5 RAM, a 1 terabyte hard drive and an upgraded AMD Polaris GPU with 6 teraflops of computing power. The PS4 Pro has only 8GB of RAM and tops out at 4.2 teraflops. Microsoft's console is clearly faster. That additional horsepower means the Xbox One X can run more games in full native 4K than the Sony's console.
