Right now is not the best time to build a gaming PC. CPU, GPU, and RAM prices are really high because of crypto-currency miners. Who knows when that will die down.

Holy s*** I didn't realize how bad it was. Those prices are insane.

RAM is hit the hardest, you can't avoid it at all. Any kind of solid state media really. GPU's if you get say a 1080 (non TI) then you can expect to pay MSRP although it is a few years old already. CPU's I find are hit the least.

Good luck finding a graphics card at a responsible price that is in stock for more than 30 seconds.

Well I was wrong about the non Ti 1080s. All the cards are scalped or out of stock, unless you want a 1050 or something. The GPU prices should go down eventually since bitcoin took a nose dive, new generation of cards will soon release, and etc. RAM is another story. Cheapest 1080 I could fine was over a grand. And that's a non Ti too. Luckily I can ride it out and the 1080 should last me awhile.

You really don't want to do that.

Which is only needed for shooters and RTS games.
