The Dell was in stock for quite a while, at least half an hour. Possibly hours, I don't know. I wasnt shopping for one but my suspicion is that most of the posters here aren't either. They'd rather just go with the heard mentality and complain online about GPU shortages instead of actually try to secure one (or a prebuilt with one which really isn't that hard).
Don't the Alienware desktops use proprietary motherboards and power supplies pretty much locking that board and psu to the case?

I have seen a few pre-built for reasonable-ish prices (1660 super, i5-10600k, $950), but we shouldn't HAVE to buy a pre-built and strip it to get a damned gpu. Miners need to be locked out of the market somehow, one farm could supply 20-30 gamers.

30-series for miners
20-series for gamers
Bad times to be a pc-gamer
Makes me wonder at what point they give up on investing heavily in features like Ray Tracing and build these cards more toward mining. Seems that's their main market now. I can't imagine the miners care about ray tracing.

Also I'm sure the miners are fine with the 20-series cards too.

2060 I can understand but 1050ti...I would rather play with igpu.

No you don't.

Of course, you're still gonna see the PCMR jackasses go into threads and say "Build a PC!"
