Hi I am ready / eager to build a new PC. As everyone knows, the new Ryzen CPU's, AMD GPU's and NVIDIA GPU's are all out of stock everywhere unless you count scalpers.
I am not going to, under any circumstance, buy from scalpers and feed that tactic. I'd rather wait a year as much as I don't want to.

Regardless, the question I have is related to Xotic-PC. I know if I buy through them, I will overpay for the assembled system by approximately $500-600 over ordering the parts separately for myself (assuming I could actually obtain a Ryzen 5900 and a GTX 3080. However If I paid scalper prices IO would exceed that anyway.

Question is, if I bought from them, what would be a normal expected build / ship time. And 2) do you think they actually have the parts or after I order they tell me it will ship in 2 months when they re-stock the parts I ordered? I asked them a few minutes ago but it is after hours, so I don't expect a response until tomorrow at earliest.

Wait until they reply, no one here knows what their turn around times are or what their inventory actually is.

Thanks, yeah I will wait of course. I just wasn't sure if anyone here had any experience with them.

In case anyone cares they responded positively at least so I am going to give them a shot. Will be the first PC in 20 years I did not build. I did skimp on memory and SSD and just bought those separately to throw in myself as the upcharge on that was too much to bear. Should have it within 3 weeks. I will update and let anyone who may or may not care how it turns out.

Replacing the Ram (64 GB G.Skill 3200 CL14) and SSD (2 TB 970 EVO). As I knew those I could buy separately cheaper and just drop in. Yes I know I overpaid... but I have the money and this will save me some futzing around time and I wanted something before the holiday break. I think I am still saving (or not spending way more) vs. what things were going for off of Ebay.

Xotic is a quality reseller, I've bought quite a few laptops from them. That said, I wouldn't trust anything they (or any other reseller) says about lead time for a system with a 3000-series card. You can pretty much count on them saying "a few weeks" turning into a few months.

Harmattan, yeah I am getting that feeling. 9 days later, the status of the order has not changed from "ordered"...
