The regular price for cable TV seems to be pretty high compared to a few years ago.
The regular price for Mars bars seems to be pretty high compared to a few years ago.
The regular price for concert tickets seems to be pretty high compared to a few years ago.

You can't compare to prices 'a few years ago'. There's this thing called 'inflation'.

Prices have gone up and the deals are few and far between. Got a Antec EAG 650W Gold unit (rebranded seasonic focus) for $100 earlier this summer for reference.

Last good unit on sale was this: amazon-ca-xpg-core-reactor-750w-fully-m ... 9-2428276/

Good to know. I was actually surprised antec is still around, remember them from the old days (cases, fans, and the earthwatts PSUs), thought they went under like Zalman et. al.

Corsair RMx series was over $50 more for similar wattage at the time, but I needed a power supply and being a rebranded seasonic I bit the bullet.

ya back in the day they were like the go to for high quality cases and psu but now not so much other companies have all passed them in quality.

Zalman is still around to but just another one of those companies who was popular back when having anything but a stock cooler was uncommon now everyone is into having a fancy cooler so other companies surpassed them.

Everyone is at home and wants to spend money to play games. The sad thing is a lot of the people probably wasting their stimulus checks on things and not saving.
