Ryzen 9 5900x/5950x scalpers running rampant
Hi I live in Denver and have noticed that every time my local microcenter restocks, it's out of stock within an hour of opening and considering you tend to receive shipments on tues/thurs, M-F working people like myself can't possibly hope to beat the unemployed scalpers waiting in lines in the morning.
I've noticed every time I see stock come and go there is usually a ton of new posts selling Ryzen 9s at absurd markups in the Denver area same day. Is there any way us normal working people can reserve a chip? Can you do anything to combat the amount of scalpers buying out your stock?
If there's any way you can help work with me on this I'd be a return customer for years to come, I just want to upgrade my 8 year old CPU on my editing rig.
Thanks in advance.
