I Knew it, I WAS RIGHT. In fact, I was Rice. In yesterday’s video I talked about newegg and the fact that they seemed to always have their own pre-built stuffed with GPUs making it impossible for us to buy just that component.
Ebay is chalk full of Alienware and Lenovo Legion, HP Omen towers, all without a GPU.
I mentioned this in the other thread too, its nuts.
I dunno about the other manufacturers, but Dell mainly uses "F" processors in their gaming desktops so you don't even get onboard when you strip out the GPU.
That said.... guilty as charged.... I bought a G5 desktop mainly to get my hands on a 5700 XT, although I don't intend on stripping the card and selling the left over bits.
