It's a VERY small sum that spend that much. I just, for instance, kept my 6900xt and Instead saved my money. That was not hard to do. Now I have money and a still wicked quick gpu.Fair. Considering nVidia's pricing structure and the fact that their GPU sales are down, it seems like a high range, but not insane range card was the right move to make. Well, I'm sure some people that spend $1600 on graphics cards would disagree, but whatever.
I think the days of 1600$ plus GPUs are going to end. For 2 reasons 1. People don't have as much money under this insano Inflation and 2. Eggs are like $8 to 12 a dozen and increasing. It's like feed my family or play cs:go at 799FPS? Once your starving games lose thier appeal.
