400$ is budget now ?
I'm wondering the same.
Always been a budget user myself, my most expensive brand new card I ever bought was a 200$+ Gigabyte Xtreme GTX 950 when it was new 'it was cheaper than the crappiest single fan 960'.
My current RX 570 was around 180$ in 2018 September from the second hand market but it still had 2 and half years warrantly left so fairly new.
400$ is far from a budget card especially when your country has 27% tax on everything and you don't exactly make that much money either.
Brand new RTX 2060 still goes for 400+$ 'non trash models' in my country so this will be way more than that.
I already gave up on these new cards and the retailers,I will just grab something from the second hand market in 2 months or so and be done with it.
Even from there I will have to pay like 330$ for a 5600 XT or anything in that performance range.
