I’ve been wanting to upgrade my video card since July and I only was able to get a new one today. The stupid cryptominers have thrown the video card market out of whack. I still wound up overpaying for my video card by about $50 but whatever, I just couldn’t wait any longer.

I’m probably an idiot though as supply seems to be increasing again and price appear to be on the decline. I guess I could have waited longer but that’s time I could have been gaming. Stupidly, I only had one game downloaded on my computer that could take advantage of this new card. I went from playing on “medium” graphics settings on Overwatch to “ultra” settings. I think I reached a peak of 130 frames per second on “ultra” which is good enough for me.

I’m looking forward to downloading some more modern games to put this new piece of hardware to the test.
