      Its unironically gotten cheaper.

      If you look at the cost of some of the parts adjusted for inflation, this shit is a really good deal.

        Yeah but then again artificial price bump on GPU with crypto diggers is somewhat stupid. Paying for GPU as much as for everything else combined (case, mobo, cpu, memory, cooling, etc) is kinda ridiculous. I’m sitting on 1060 for about three years now and I won’t be changing into anything else because when I’ll finally do that I’ll be swapping the whole case with everything inside (apart maybe from my storage/ssd’s) in year or two, maybe later. And I’m not interested in none of that flashy rgb bullshit or water cooling.
        Bonus round : extra price on pieces that are "gaming", "for gamers" and with some flashy rainbow rgb lights on it. Just avoiding it as a plague it is can cut the price down quite a bit. But requires more digging.

        this tbh.
        you don’t need RTX3090 or GTX or whatever that shit is called.
        grabbing the post powerful components is a shitty meme started by the graphics card industry and their advertising investments in youtubers.

        kids these day really think they need to match specs with rich streamers.

            His point is that mining and covid scarcity have made even budget cards expensive. Even Newegg is selling 1660 cards at $100 over msrp, if and when they’re in stock.

        It’s really not though, especially if you look at what the MSRP was supposed to be at launch. The fact that there’s a manufacturing shortage for certain components does not mean that we’re getting a good deal, it’s actually the opposite. Buying a GPU new in this market is insane. Hell, even resale prices have skyrocketed.

          Starts falling apart with the train ride. Everything before that is great in my opinion. The parkour, intro, airport scenes is all top quality.

            Not to you, but if they’re selling at those price points, clearly they are worth that to some. Prices change, especially in times when demand greatly exceeds supply. Price gouging is definitely a thing, but it’s not like retailers are getting their stock for same old prices, either.

            It is very much bullshit I agree, but I don’t see it returning back to normal this year, or early next year.

          I mean you can technically get a ps5 for $399 (assuming you can find one), which is really hard to compete with specs/price ratio-wise. Considering how lackluster the modern state of modding is it hardly outweighs the difference

          >but piracy
          Piracy is not a sustainable recommendation for PCfags. If every PCfag started to do it then PC wouldn’t get games anymore. Pirating some shit every now and then is okay but you should never advertise PCgaming to others with piracy

        Just get a prebuilt from a site where you choose the parts and they just assemble it. I got a 3060 ti at retail price because they have direct deals with the manufacturers.

      Building a PC, even in the current climate, isn’t that bad in all actuality.

      It’s the cost of a decent graphics card that really ups the price. Even a mid-range 8GB of VRAM card is quite expensive.

      What games do you even play with an high end pc that costs that much. There are like 5 good games out there that require these ridiculous specs to play it on the highest setting but other than that its just irrelevant. As if it makes that much of a difference if you play the newest battleduty of honor in 4K or 2K. People who spend that much on their pc either have too much money, are completely retarded or need their pc to do work related stuff like rendering videos or displaying gigantic 3d models

      Is Alder Lake worth it?
      I have a 4790k and R9 390 and was thinking of finally upgrading my mobo, cpu and ram. I think I can still roll with my current gpu for couple of years so no need to upgrade that.

          Alder Lake is supposed to be DDR5 ready, right?
          If so then I imagine that being a huge selling point for those mobos.

        if you own xbox you can work your way around this by getting gamepass ultimate for 3 years for £100 which includes gold. so if you own a series s that’s £350 total for the console and gamepass for 3 years or £550 for series x and gamepass. comes out cheaper than ps5 with PS+ and PSnow for the same amount of time.

          Gamepass is a small malignancy that will grow into something lethal if we let it. Streaming and subscription services need to be nipped in the bud.

            it won’t because thousands of games are made every year from small scale to big AAA and less than 1% of those games will ever be on these subscription services. gamepass’s future isn’t 3rd party content anyway. they’re working towards becoming solely reliant on 1st party content hence the massive push for acquisitions.

              That’s what’s concerning. Acquiring everything and forcing those games into a subscription only service where the consumer doesn’t own anything. Obviously it won’t affect literally every game out there, but it would affect a good number of them. Corporations will always push for as much control as possible to strongarm consumers and maximize profit. M$ has been guilty of this numerous times.

                nobody is being forced into anything bud let’s stop pretending. they still sell games on steam and physically at 3rd party retailers and digitally through their own store. it’s just one of many options.

                as for the acquisitions themselves i have no problem with them based on everything we know, which is that these studios were looking/open to be acquired e.g. obsidian straight up said they were looking for a publisher and turned down several other offers. double fine said they wanted the stability and used their extra funding to add bosses back into psychonauts 2 which were originally cut due to time and funding constraints. zenimax owner was also selling and they looked at several offers before choosing MS.

                MS are doing this "play anywhere" approach so these games are guaranteed to be playable many ways. what would be concerning is if someone like sony were to be making acquisitions, because their philosophy is completely opposite to microsoft’s, which is to lock games to console.

                    they never will be because it’s impossible for any subscription service to do that unless they hold a monopoly over content, which is literally impossible in gaming. gaming is too split between hundreds of different publishers for that to happen. MS would have to get EA, Ubi, T2, THQ, KT, Capcom, Sqenix, Sony, Nintendo etc to sign up to gamepass for them to be able to force people into the service.

                      They hold a monopoly over their own content and that’s far from impossible. Honestly, it’s not that different from what Nintendo is doing. Imagine if Nintendo was successful in shutting down every rom site out there. You could argue that’s impossible, and thank god it is, but you know what would happen if they could. Now imagine games were locked down to a subscription/streaming service where you couldn’t even get access to the files to begin with.

                        the thing about MS is that they want big money from gaming. console didn’t satisfy them. and neither will sub services alone. that’s why they’ll continue to offer different avenues to play their games whether it’s sub service, physical/digital purchases across pc, console and streaming. so i can never see it happening. i don’t think what nintendo is doing is strictly comparable.

      The innovation of crypto and proof of work caused miners to buy out the supply, lowering it, while the demand increased, causing a hike in price. Covid19 fiasco exacerbated the above.

      Only nocoiners seethe.

      It costs about 1700 USD to build a PC that will max everything at 1440p 144fps right now. Cheaper if you really gamble and don’t buy quality parts

        And you could knock that down to around half price if gpu markups weren’t insane.

          No that’s with a msrp 3070 or 3070 ti. It’ll be 2k+ with scalped prices. You just have to be on the lookout. Bestbuy online drops, amd store drops, newegg shuffle, etc you can get a card for msrp in a week or two of trying

        The selling point for smart money is how much it costs over the average shitrig or gayman laptop. That’s your TCO vs a console.

            Means nothing these days. Lots of ways to mask your filename and have it uploaded as a generic Ganker hash.

      It cost that much if you are retarded. However it is going to cost more than a console, but you get a better experience all around.

      How many years did you have to wait for that 600 dollar console to reach 300? Or are you just counting how much you spent on your console 20 years ago?

      Meanwhile I’m running the same game with better draw distance and higher settings at 1440/144fps solid.

      When I’m done playing I use the same device to do work.

      -people been knowing for ages that PC is popular, and for that, "superior"
      -pandemic arises
      -normies became otakus/gamers
      -nvidia gen 30 appears
      this is where it gets catchy
      -some people wanna make business out of it by purchasing a bunch and try to re-sell them
      -others for mining bit coin as cripto currency increased lately
      -the rest purchase it for gaming
      >stock is dead and components are hard to get as the start of covid split each country
      >components became harder to get and therefore more expensive

      >people buy them for mining
      while others struggle just to upgrade their CPU.

      I think PC gaming is dead and it’s (not a right) but a luxury nowadays.
      console is the reasonable way to go apparently, and with more reason due to the discovery that adding denuvo de-ptimize video games (village for example)

      Never? You’re a retard if you spend that much on a PC just for gaming.
