In the US, it doesn’t seem to be that difficult. Here, you need to do a good search.
The graphics card price curve has risen exponentially over the last three years, especially on NVIDIA’s side and even more so now with the new generation RTX 40. The second “cheaper” Ada Lovelace GPU, the RTX 4080it’s costing from US$ 1200 and the value is enough to build a good AMD PC with Ryzen 5 5600X and Radeon RX 6900 XT in the USA.
A video with a joking tone (I recommend watching it, it’s funny), published by youtuber Sebastian Castellanos, shows that he managed to spend $1,198 on a PC with Ryzen 5 5600X, MSI B550-A Pro, 32 GB DDR4-3600 by G.Skill, Asus TUF RX 6800 XTTeamGroup M.2 1TB SSD, EVGA 600BQ power supply and Phanteks Eclipse P300A case.

Leaving aside the mockery of the video comparing an entire working PC against a graphics card, both costing the same, it’s interesting to see what you can buy for the price of an RTX 4080.
The Videocardz site went even further, setting up a PC with a Radeon RX 6900 XT, with a more powerful source and air cooler in a tower, leaving the budget cheaper than the one presented by the youtuber (US$ 1,174.65). Remember that peripherals and monitor are not on the list.
Taking into account that an RTX 4080 has cost more than 30% above the price suggested by NVIDIA, it would still be possible to add peripherals to this computer with an AMD CPU and GPU by buying in American stores.
You have to do a good search in Brazil
And around here, would you do the same? Until you give, if you dig. Is it possible to find a Radeon RX 6900 XT for just over BRL 6,000 with Powercolor’s Red Devil model🇧🇷 In a quick search (on Google and without sticking to brands, just out of curiosity), you can see that several models of this GPU have already sold out in the Brazilian market.
The second most expensive item, the CPU Ryzen 5 5600X it’s costing one just over $1,100🇧🇷 Is it possible to spend less than R$800 in a B550 motherboard and close to R$ 1,000 on a 32 GB memory kit (3600 MHz)🇧🇷 One Reliable 700W PSU costs around BRL 600🇧🇷 Closing the PC, one remains 1TB M.2 SSDwhich can be found by less than R$600 it is a air cooler for less than R$ 200🇧🇷 Oh! O “gamer” cabinet can cost about BRL 150🇧🇷
There is an RTX 4080 costing from R$10,899 to more than R$11,500 here in Brazil. This budget for an entire AMD PC would come out (more or less) close to R$10,300. So give! It is worth remembering that we are talking about a period of promotions now with Black Friday and that in Brazil everything is more expensive in the most popular form of payment: installment.
