Making a decision on when to buy a computer and what to buy can seem easy to the layperson, but a lot goes into it. The prices have lately dropped and for the consumer this is a great thing but to the investors of companies this is a problem. There are many different perspectives and approaches to resolve this but for the time being the price drops are about to slow for certain equipment. Relationships with companies that have gone on for many years are coming to an end and people will be losing jobs over it. Please understand this is not intended to be a statement, but show how the prices are going to change.

The DDR5 RAM and the prices we see now are going to change to a cheaper format once they have figured out the higher tier motherboard issues and are ready to mass produce an easier to use, format, and implement motherboard. The newer motherboards and amenities on them are going to be faster and require more power. All of this is going to require people to become more aware of the PSU (Power Supply Unit) and how it's utilized.

The high tier GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) requires three separate 8pin PCIE (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) power lanes from the PSU to have a stable power connection. This means higher airflow and cooling needs as well.

With all this lead up, I am drawing a picture for you to see. A higher tier professional or gaming P.C. and the expense of buying one worth buying is going to go up. Please understand, a higher price doesn’t always mean it’s better, it just means the parts cost more. Some of the P.C. builders that claim to do custom P.C.s are dishonest and rely on their branding to carry them through. Read reviews before you buy a P.C. and make a wise purchase, not all P.C.s or their parts are created equal. Take your time in shopping and if you’re not sure of how to do it, find help navigating it. A bad purchase when spending this much money can be a massive set back.
