    Thats how it went with GPUs though. People paid £2500 for a 3090 and sat for months waiting for it. Bollocks system that only benefits the people selling the product.

    It's been like this for quite a while, so I dunno if it's anything to do with christmas holidays. It's a combo of either higher targeting/automod stuff not working and a total lack of mods outside of...
