In 2019 I wanted to start putting something new together. Unfortunately, the crypto market had exploded, and I staunchly refuse to pay inflated prices for a GPU. Until they return to MSRP, I'm still using 5014, despite its age beginning to show and software support for Windows 7 slowly fading.

In the meantime, I have considered picking up and switching to some sort of hyper-efficient nano-PC such as the Chuwi LarkBox, Steam Deck, or Beelink SER3.
