Just my luck that my decade-old rig would finally die while we're still not fully out of the drought
work won't wait, so it's time to pay the piper and get in for another decade.
Decided to spec up a high-end AMD build with Cyberpower, only for them to immediately jam a wrench in the works because there' no 6900XT stock - which would have been nice to know before they took my money and put it behind a 3-day refund period.
While they did offer to swap it for a 3080... Bitch i'm trying to escape nvidia's bad linux driver situation, not grandfather myself in even deeper
So it looks like I'll be saying fuck it and building it myself - story of my life. Amazon UK seems like the best deal for everything that wasn't CPU or GPU, so I went with currys and newegg for those respectively.
Looking forward to building it next week, but man, being PC-less is rough. No coding, games, movies, TV, ebooks, comics... I need to go outside and look at some flowers or something
