There's a motherboard shortage due to the factory shutdowns in China so you'll be seeing really outrageous prices from third party sellers (like $1000 for $350 msrp).

If you want a motherboard you...

lol, bribery to get into USC

I guess if you want to pay $500,000 to buy a Toyota camry you totally can. Doesn't mean it's a good idea, but if you have money to burn then why not?
