My previous computers include a Gateway laptop and a HP Pavilion desktop. I did an "upgrade" on the HP with a low-end video card that was "just enough" for older games. In 2017 I decided to start planning a build, but wanted to wait for prices to come back down before actually starting the build. That was a terrible mistake. Prices went up, not down, but I was at the point where I needed a new computer. As soon as I bought the parts, prices started coming down.

That's the story of my life.
