    Default What's on your 2021 Christmas list?

    It's that time of year again. Christmas is less that 1 month away - Black Friday just ended, Cyber Monday is tomorrow, busy shopping season for many. What's on your Christmas list this year?

    Well definitely no Computer Parts or Consoles .
    I will try to see if I can get an OLED TV though. PC build has been pushed back....again. So far I have gotten a nice little travel Router that I can install a VPN client on as well as other things.

    All I want for Christmas....two things.

    1. Customers who have outstanding balances to settle them.
    2. Sleep.
    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".

    Opposite for me. I building from now before US dollar get more out of control and shortages get even worse next year so might as well. Ofcourse no video card upgrade until MSRP prices return. Lucky for me I bought a decent one last year right before things started getting ridiculous. Will post the finish build in a few weeks time when remaining parts get here.

    I hope to do a build in Q1 after CES. I don't think the CPU or Motherboard Prices will get out of control for my build. GPUs though....that's another story.

    Well I'm glad so far the prices I payed for my parts are not arm and leg prices like GPU now, but the CPU might take a while to get depending on if your buying a popular one though as remember there is still a global chip shortage. Even power supplies seem to still be affected.

    Well CPUs will be easier to get as it is just the silicon really and the part that was in short supply was what they call the substrate. Every Chip maker says that this should ease in Q1. GPUs and Motherboards etc that rely on other things such as Capacitor and resistors will face more of an issue as there are other materials shortages (and Labour) associated with those products.
