And as far as mining to pay for your GPU (casual gamer and part-time miner), with EIP-1559 coming up in early Aug, and "The Merge" scheduled for a year or two out, the ROI on a scalper-priced card looks really bleak.Now it will take some time for the price the producers are willing to accept to decrease as more rational/traditional buyers say "I'm not spending that much on a video card". I'm very much one of those consumers........I can wait as long as it takes.
So I applaud those like you, "holding out" for MSRP-priced GPUs. Or at least significantly cheaper.
