I was going to build the wee lad a PC, he wants to get into computer programming/games development.. not be happening whilst the chip shortage is still happening.
The chip shortage, across all forms of componentry, won't be over until at least next year. If then. Too many things went wrong at the same time for reliable sources of supply to be maintained.
I'm glad I stuck with my Radeon RX590 now, it plays any game I chuck at it on Ultra unless it's one of those stupid-ass Nvidia-optimized ones which rely on their proprietary PhysX crapola.
