Welcome, NAGlings, to the bi-monthly System Builder’s Guide. It’s a new year and we’re already more than halfway through January already. Crazy how times flies, isn’t it? This episode of the guide talks about the mining industry’s effects on gamers a bit, but it’s a subject that has been done to death now that we’ve had to suffer component shortages four years in a row in the same period of the year. But while some people say that it’s a terrible time to build a new gaming PC, I’d contest that it’s still a good time to get in. By compromising a little on things here and there, we can still build some potent systems today.
