makes me want to cry when I think back to paying $A1100 for a 6800Ultra

Surely is a buyers market at present.

it kind of sucks when doing upgrades with PC.
There are like parts that we want, but dont have no money for it, then we feel sad....
but then, the parts becomes cheaper, and we can afford it
so we go out and get the ones we want
but usually when that happens is when a new and improved one comes out, and then feel sad again because we cant get those parts..
and then the cycle just repeating over and over

Yeah, this is partly why the PC gaming industry is failing.
