I just want to be able to afford a graphics card upgrade so I can play in 4k


Yes, because the lack of crypto mining would suddenly make true 4K gaming practical/affordable, lol.

i mean it depends what affordable is. you just added the word "practical" in there to assist your argument despite the word not being used previously. affordable might be $500 and not $1000 as he mentioned.

Doesn't affect me, have no interest in it and I can wait for parts to fluctuate back down if I'm interested in building a new PC.

Not free in economical terms. The cost is the utilities you pay for and the offset cost you could get selling that card now.
If you don't want to argue about something, take the initiative and stfu.
