    Can you find Ryzen 3600's still?
    Wouldn't the newer 5600 be in the same price range?

    Looking at shops here in Swedenstan.
    Nvidia 2060's costs more than 3060.
    Why is it called earth, when it is mostly water???

    My plan is(was?) also to try and get a new PC during black week so this thread is a good thread! But the video cards are really fucking things up as far as I can tell.
    Its not that much difference in price/what you get now vs before black week, the gfx card increase is all the difference.
    The one I'm looking at: https://www.webhallen.com/se/product...Win-11#p-specs

    And yes, taking the easy way out going pre-built. There are a couple of similar builds, small differences (mostly CPU variants) around same price.
    All probably need to add a couple of things to them to make them slightly more complete (like a 2nd SSD).

    Edit: Something like this if I go for laptop: https://www.webhallen.com/se/product...RTX3070-Win-11
    I would need my new rig to be...portable in one way or the other without too much hassle.

    Acer one looks good. But take a peak at Inet.se and Netonnet.
    They too got good offers.

    Lots of good advice.

    As far as stores go: I'd only go for Amazon as a second choice. Cyberport and Caseking are better stocked or cheaper. The former does ship internationally, couldn't figure out their shipping though. Here is Caseking's shipping cost. Caseking are proper nerds, local to Berlin.

    Speaking of local. In case your next tour leads you to Germany, Cyberport has stores in several German cities and two in Vienna. Caseking's warehouse is in Berlin and has a small store.

    Yes, GPU prices went down pretty nicely for a short bit then shot back up for some reason.
    Guns make the news, science doesn't.

    Why are you reccomending a Nvidia gpu?

    You get more for your money going with an AMD gpu atm. Current fps/$ chart gives the most bang for the buck with a RX 6600 at 0.37 fps/$

    Something like this should give you headroom for whatever you cant salvage from your old computer (storage/psu/case)

    Buying 6600 atm is not the most sound decision. At least give it few weeks after next gen AMD premiere, and then grab whatever gives you best bang for your buck with feature you require. Late january seems like perfect time for gpu shopping given current premiere calendar. Considering you're shopping for the lower end of the mid market I would say even a bit longer. Simply said I would wait for 7600.

    If AMD's previous release cycles is anything to go by then the 7600 won't be here until July at the earliest. If we're lucky we'll see a 7800 and 7700 in March.

    But prices should start getting pushed down if AMD's top end offerings hold up. eventually.

    Anyway if you're buying anything a 6600 looks far better than anything nvidia has to offer atm.

    Yup, I'd wait for AMDs new releases, if nothing else it might push something like the 6700 down to your budget.

    Cool. Any general advice on the current prices and performance for bestbuy/midrange processors and graphics cards is welcome! I'm still browsing for the next couple of weeks.
    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    Currently it's impossible to beat 6800(xt) in terms of price/performance. But it's 500$ nowadays, might be still a bit to pricey. All in all grabbing the highest previous gen model you can afford seems like the obvious answer. Look for good deals on 6600xt, sub 300$ for new one deals are starting to appear already.

    6700xt dropped to ca $300 here. That's a good price even from pre-covid point of view.
