Chip shortage is driving computer costs through the roof.

It’s not like the China Tariffs were not bad enough, then the China Virus caused everyone to work from home and now the auto makers and bitcoin mining is making it difficult to find computers and tech components at reasonable prices. Graphics cards are off the shelves for months now.

Bitcoin miners are using bots to buy up any gaming card as soon as it hits the web for sale. Monitor costs are going up 30%, Hard drives costs are up 20% and it does not look like they are stopping there. Pretty much anything that uses chips will either be impossible to find or the price will be astronomical.
