If you’re in the market to for a new graphics card for your PC, you might want to get in quick.

According to a report by Taiwanese news source, digitimes.com, graphics card makers are increasing prices for cards using DDR3 memory.

The increase is said to come on the back of increased prices for DDR3 memory, which have risen by 10% in recent times.

With the upcoming release of Intel’s new Haswell processor line-up, the average selling price (ASP) of motherboards is also expected to increase. So if you’re thinking about buying current generation hardware, you may want to do it sooner rather than later.

Intel’s Haswell-class CPUs are expected to deliver higher performance with reduced power consumption, which is hoped will help spur sales of ultrabooks that are struggling with the onslaught of low-cost tablets from Apple, Google and Microsoft. The new Intel CPUs, which are said to be shipping to PC makers now, are expected to be officially launched in June this year.
