Graphics Card Buying in 2021

2021.10.17 02:26 jb0rys Graphics Card Buying in 2021

TLDR : It's bad; worse that I thought. I was replying to someone on a post, who asked about how bad the GPU market really was. It was meant to be a simple, short reply, but as I collected my thoughts, it finally dawned upon me how dire the situation really is. Am I overreacting? I hope so.
Graphics Card Buying in 2021 If buying new * materials costs have gone up * GPU makers' suppliers have raised prices * shipping container costs have skyrocketed - Example: "The spot price per container on the China-U.S. East coast route - one of the world's busiest container lanes - has climbed over 500%" (Reuters, 2021 August 6) * manufacturers (nVidia/AMD) are raising MSRP before the card even leaves the factory * then the distributors are raising prices * retailers are scalping further * new cards, now at an already higher MSRP than in the past due to factors listed above, and more, get sold out within hours at best, or milliseconds at worst * whatever is available is in very limited stock * most of the time, if a new GPU is in stock, it is often because the price is high enough to deter demand, though sometimes people get lucky
If buying used * many older cards, still somewhat capable of keeping up with current gen games, are selling for multiple times the launch MSRP from many years ago * some old cards have been 'baked' - no guarantee how long they will last * some old cards have been mining 24/7 for years, some in high heat environments - no guarantee how long they will last * newer cards that are scalped on 3rd party seller sites like eBay are selling for multiple times the MSRP with no long-term warranty
Also * Games like 'New World' are destroying graphics cards * You are competing with miners, from as small as a single GPU operation, to warehouses full of GPUs and run by multi-million dollar corporations, or multi-billion/trillion dollar national governments * You are competing with well organized, purchasing bots * You are competing with other gamers * You are competing with other industries like automotive, cell phone, tablets, general consumer electronics, etc. They all want the chips. * You are competing against corporations and government who have now also started hoarding chips

2021.10.17 02:26 TheEKR1998 Possible broken GPU any ideas?

My 3070 I’ve had for about 8 months or so. Today I booted up like normal and I had my screen freeze while just doing desktop tasks. It sometimes will freeze, black screen, and reboot. Sometimes it just will freeze until I have to hard reset.
I’ve checked connections, reseated ram, ssd, and GPU. I tried a different GPU slot and got the same issues.
I have played new world the past week or so maybe a bit more.
Are these symptoms that could be brought on by that game’s performance issues? Or does this point to anything else going on?

2021.10.17 02:26 Connect-War6612 When serial killers are too close for comfort

My mom and I were watching an episode of "Supernatural" that had John Wayne Gacy's ghost in it a year or so ago. She was particularly unsettled by it, stating that any fictional representation of Gacy felt "too real" and "too creepy" to her. Even nearly thirty years after his execution, he still bothers her (I'm from the Chicago area by the way).
You see, Mom's family lived in the same neighborhood as Gacy did or at least an adjacent neighborhood. My uncle, who was about 14 or so at the time was once dragged off by his friend in the dead of winter because he wanted to watch the police dig. Because of my Mom's proximity to the murders, she's always found this one serial killer particularly unpleasant.
I was wondering if anyone else had family members (or perhaps yourself) who felt the same way about other serial killers.

With how long queue times can be, I wish that failed Act 4 lobbies just got to reset and try again. It's the same single mission, so I can't think of a reason not to.

2021.10.17 02:26 stenogirl612 Nose piercing

So I got my nose re pierced about six weeks ago. The stud they pierced it with is so long. Can I change it to a shorter stud cork yet? I’m going to end up catching it on something eventually. It looks like it is healing pretty nicely. I’m just afraid if I have to wait the full six months that I’m going to just end up taking it out because of the jewelry length.
