If you can even get a graphics card. Crypto miners buy them all, and what there is for pc people is outrageously priced. I was lucky to get mine and my wife's computers built right before everything went crazy. I wanted to eventually get a better video card (I've got an rx580 8gb) but it does the job well and I can wait. She's got an rx 5700 though, so a little better. Processors shot up right after I got ours as well (ryzen 5 3600 and ryzen 7 3700).
Crypto mining should calm down soon. It goes in waves, every couple years. When random people who don't know windows from linux are giving advice about what the hot new crypto is, you know that the crash is coming soon, and that mining profits will drop and things will go back to 'normal-ish.'
As long as the cards get sold off. I see a shorage of new cards for a while considering the silicon shortage. The plant in china going boom ain't gonna help any! I can only imagine what happened. My first job as an electrician was to help build a silicon plant...that place is ripe for any number of incidents. I wouldn't work at a working silicon plant unless the pay was considerable...and I mean, ridiculous kind of pay.
