If you haven't looked at graphics cards in awhile now is the time!

Due to graphics cards being used for bitcoin mining (and other mining) the market rate for them had skyrocketed to unreal levels during the crypto boom, supply and demand had GPU's costing 2x-4x their normal pricing and anyone looking to upgrade their computer was stuck with a hard choice.

A few weeks ago crypto crashed, and all the miners are trying to offload their (probably half-fried) graphics cards -- effectively flooding the supply side of the market. With this crash it has brought the market rate for new graphics cards back down to their normal levels (not all sellers have fixed their prices yet, but the bigger name companies have dropped their prices back down)

So if you were wanting to upgrade now is probably the best time
