Any and all information regarding GPU price drops and increase is welcome here. As we all know, these prices are ridiculous and hopefully we will see some drops soon. Linus tech tips and some others are mentioning we might see some lower prices...
Let me know what your thoughts are and if you have spent the money to buy a GPU recently
 
I planned to upgrade in 2020. I was actually buying high end video cards in 2019, like the gtx 2080, to use them for 28 days before returning.
I wish I had just kept one, but I would tell myself to wait for the next generation. The increase in performance is crazy and the 3080 would be in my price zone.
I never managed to upgrade, and at this point I'm forced to continue with my 980. You can't even find older cards at a good price.

I do not think it's ending soon. I think the next generation will be released and a few of us will snag a card not far above MSRP. Depending on what measures are taken by Nvidia and AMD, we will see how it goes.

I believe the video card market will not return soon, and the hard drive market will inflate next. I would buy any M.2 SSDs right now, while you can get a good deal. I never imagined that an entire PC component would be unavailable to purchase in every form.

At this point, I'll likely upgrade by purchasing a pre-built computer. Those companies seem to have deals that allow them to get these high-end video cards.

Nice. I wanted to build a new one but I ended up just buying a laptop with a 3070 inside 🙃
