Other news
It looks like I might be able to get replacement GPU's soon. I have seem some retailers now discounting the RTX 3060 and the occasional RTX 3060 Ti's appearing for sale. I'm still waiting for the price to drop a bit more. The retailers are still limiting them to 1 per household.

I'm attributing the increase in availability to the China cryptocurrency crackdown and the light hash rate (LHR) that all the newer Nvidia cards have. It has also made the value of the cryptocurrencies drop so its no longer profitable for them.
