Most of us don’t like being told what to do, much less what not to do. But right now is actually not a good time to build a fine-ass gaming PC, due to component shortage factors. 

Graphics cards and CPUs are not that readily available right smack in the middle of this COVID mess since everybody wants to stay put at home and play, so that makes them both very available and…not. Yes, there are many new, state-of-the-art beauties popping up, but not enough to go around. Which sucks bigtime, I know.

Sucky, Sucky Covid-19 Times!

And it doubly sucks since both Nvidia and AMD have new premium graphics cards on their noggin’ or up their sleeves and being released pretty soon, for very reasonable prices. Plus, AMD is even about to introduce the spanking, new Ryzen 5000 CPUs, that may very well leave Intel biting the dust regarding game speed and memory sharing. 

Nevertheless, the rest of 2020 is looking pretty bleak for graphics cards and you can run into lots of disappointment and sorrow trying to find NVIDIA RTX 3080, 3090 or 3070 cards anywhere. The few in stock are selling like beers on a hot day, and there are even scalpers willing to help you get rid of your dough. 

Either way, the new AMD Radeon RX cards are not available just yet, and they are sure to sell out the minute they hit the stores, plus remain out of stock for the medium term at the least, so the wise thing to do is to not expect to be able to build a gaming PC in the next few months. That is, if you’re not downright slapped with a shot of luck.
