Of all the times to upgrade, why did it have to be now? I have an old AM2 system with a Radeon R5 340X hold-me-over that I'm looking to finally replace. Of course, trying to get a decent video card now is insanely difficult. I'm looking to get either a RTX 3070, 3060 or a Radeon 6700 XT when it gets released (Thanks for the heads up Don). The rest will probably be a Ryzen 5 3600 CPU and 16 gb of RAM. I already have a 1TB NVME ssd and a 1920x1200 monitor. The way I see it, I have a few options: I live near a Microcenter and know what days they usually get trucks. I can wait in line before opening one of those days each week. I also plan on getting there extra early for the 6700 XT release. Plan B is to go with a prebuilt system. I have an IT friend that can get me a 25% discount through Dell. To get a 30xx card with Ryzen, it would have to be an Alienware system. I know Dells leave a lot to be desired, but 25% off would make the price almost reasonable. https://www.dell.com/en-us/member/s...rationid=6ffb379b-9981-4f73-906d-02e1815da0c7 25% would make this ~$1330 As far as others, Best Buy recently had this in stock. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/cyberp...tx-3070-1tb-ssd-white/6434646.p?skuId=6434646 This will be a gaming system, but I'm not really deadset on what games I'll play. Probably Hitman 3, PUBG and GTA 5.
