I have a lenovo notebook with ryzen 4500u to learn, code and basic games nostalgic and a ps4 pro. I just play with older AAA games costs around 10 usd. The whole setup didnt more throughout the years than a new 3080Yeah, I can't either. One of my friends bought an RTX 3080 and when he told me what he paid, I said to him "OMGWTFBBQ! That's more than I paid for my entire platform!"
I have a rule. My video card must NEVER cost more than my platform components combined.
