Maybe the OEM (pre-built) systems won't be affected by the shortage, but it might be hard to find and expensive to get a 3000 series card.
They won't be affected by the shortage, maybe. But the pre-built systems are HORRIFICALLY overpriced. I just saw an ad for one company, systems with a 3080 starting at something like $3299. You can put together an entire computer, rig, triple monitors, and the wheel/pedal setup (Fanatec not Logitech/Thrustmaster garbage), for ~$3500.

You don't need to pay a company HUNDREDS of dollars in labor for plugging components into a motherboard and loading up your OS of choice.
