Jeez man, that's what I get for waiting to pull the trigger on the Ryzen 5 2600 I guess...
Christmas build for my son.
Maybe I should keep waiting til Middle December and see what happens, but then demand will probably go higher and naturally prices should boost further.
Check out r/buildapcsales I know the 1700 and 2600x has some large sales.
Many of the stockpiles retailers built up when the tariffs were announced are selling though so we are starting to see the pricing increases.
Well I sure can't blame folks for wanting to get a better deal. I personally am trying to upgrade my son's PC for Christmas on a budget.
