Seriously, how can a gamer gurl actually afford to game these days? My 2013 card is still wheezing forward, I have a huge stack of games that I want to play but can't run.

Surely you can get a 2017-19 card for relatively cheap

I haven't felt any need to upgrade my GPU in ages. We finally managed to escape the Upgrade Hell that begin in the '90s, rejoice.

the number of post-2013 games worth playing can be counted on one hand, if not the stump of a handless man.

A lot of my niche tactical shooters are on Unreal Engine 4 now, which still looks pretty bad but has shit performance on AMD. Sub-60 FPS in a shooter is painful. Of course there are also some big budget games I'm interested in like Red Dead Redemption 2 and a few others.

Is there really a need to buy new though with so many trust fund kiddes replacing their cards ever 2 years or so? Just buy a card for pennies on the dollar, make sure it works when you buy it obviously, and if it breaks down the road you can just get another one for cheap. You'll still be saving money.

I didn't mean new in box, I meant that even dusty old used cards' value has been inflated by shitcoin mining so much that they sell for more than they did brand new in 2017 (and I thought they were mad overpriced at MSRP back then). You just can't win, I thought 2020 would finally be the year I'd upgrade, now getting a card even in 2021 seems unlikely.

Ah, that sucks then, fair enough, I haven't upgraded since like 2016-7 or so so I don't know.
