Thanks to COVID-19 and a variety of other factors, simply purchasing some of the year's most popular tech items has proved to be quite the challenge, even for big-ticket items. Fortunately for you, I've been around the block a few times and have weather many product release storms of the past and will share my expert knowledge with you.
Since the middle of September, I've been abled to acquire an NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU, an RTX 3090 GPU, 2 AMD Ryzen 5800X CPUs, a PS5, Xbox Series X, and Radeon RX 6800 XT (just this morning on launch day!). Don't worry about setting up complicated website-scraping bots or other uneccesarry things to try and buy this stuff — just follow these steps and you'll be the hero of Christmas 2020!
Step 1: Get your mind right
At the end of the day, these are just consumer electronics. It's not worth losing sleep over and becoming angry. If you fail now, it only means you'll be successful later on down the line. I recommend picking up this handy broswer extension that will make your computer or phone beep when one of these items comes in stock at a variety of online retailers.
Step 2: Be prepared
You can't buy anything if you don't have the cash. Nothing stings more than missing out on buying a new console because your credit card gets declined. Make sure to inform your financial institution that you plan on some big-ticket purchases so you don't get caught with your pants down.
Step 3: Put your best foot forward
Thanks to this guide, you'll be swimming in new gear in no time, but your friends and relatives that are not hip to all the best strategies will continue to miss out. Be sure to pick up an extra RTX 3080 or two when you make your own purchase. There's no better feeling than paying it forward.
Step 4: Don't forget to have fun!
At the end of the day, buying non-essential items is the best way to feel good about yourself and these items are as non-essential a they come, so let the good time roll! Don't forget to pick up an extended warranty when you complete the transaction for piece of mind.
