As a (sort of - if I had customers) system-builder, it's kind of like "Catch as catch can" as far as finding affordable parts. I'm already seeing the deals on 10th-Gen starting to dry up. Been eyeing some stock-piles of G6400 Pentium Gold CPUs, as they are literally about the cheapest acceptable CPUs for Fortnite and web browsing.My position is based on recent precedence. Miss a firesale like the 9900K or Zen+, and you could be stuck waiting along time to get another great deal. 10th gen Intel has been hitting firesale pricing, has the cores and threads to age well, and they won't last forever.
