Here's a solution, drivers license required, 1 GPU purchase per 6 months. It would be even better if this was shared between the large retailers, so that a single person can only have 1 order at any given time for a GPU, none of this "I'll make 5+ orders, then cancel the rest once the first order arrives". It also fixes the bot issues. Anyway, the shortage is costing the retailers money. I'm not going to buy a brand new PC and get a second hand 1080ti. I'm also not going to buy a new PC and get all the components bar receiving a GPU for 3+ months, there is no point in that. I'm also not playing in this non-sense pricing and game of trying to secure extremely limited launch stock (which the term "launch stock" is a joke, as it implies there will be heaps of stock to follow, but there isn't). This will be the end of PC gaming. Its simply unaffordable in the long term, better off with a console, which is extremely sad.
