Give it a few years when all these new FABs are online prices will drop like a rock. The semiconductor industry is always going from boom to bust in every area that's how the big boys buy out the smaller ones.
Crypto currency will pretty much crater sooner or later so there will be a flood of used cards cheap.
What we have now is a perfect storm of larger demand because of people being inside more, production and delivery bottlenecks caused by virus, and fabs that were at capacity before all this started. Quite a bit of the chips that are hard to get are low tech ones used in cars and appliances.
If you look through history there have always been chokepoints caused by availability in things like RAM, HD's , and even processors.
Speaking of which. Your state is about to go online with the largest semiconductor manufacturing facility in the world. Very nice!
