We are all at fault for the high prices on what we buy, if everyone would stop paying ridiculous scalper prices for their equipment all those good for nothing scalpers would go out of business quickly and prices would get back to normal much faster, I was in the Process of upgrading my very old and outdated desktop when the pandemic hit, my system now has an AMD 1090T CPU, AM3 Motherboard, 12Gb of DDR3 memory and an XFX 570 8Gb GPU, I was going to upgrade it all, but now I am going to wait, WHY you ask? because I for one will not spend my hard-earned money on anything that has an overinflated price due to GREEDYNESS, I will wait patiently for the prices to return to normal whenever and whatever that my be.
Are you a hardcore gamer? Probably not so the wait should be much easier for you than it is for that category of gamer. I agree with you somewhat. But the selling prices are somewhat inherently tied to supply and demand. The return to normal may not come. In that scenario gamers like me, casual to light, would hope for market saturation of more powerful used cards in the future. A 2060ti for me would do just fine at the moment. At the right price of course.
