ok nerds!
looking to make a new AMD rig and I havent kept up on things since I built the current pc 7 years ago.
I think Im good with keeping the radeon 5700xt gpu but what to start with the rest.
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

nice rig and great offer but no.
part of this thread is to for me to help myself actually define what Im looking for.
some things that now come to mind.
1. prefer Corsair ram due to my history with it.
2. 1000 watt platinum power supply
3. probably sticking with Samsung ssd, again based on personal experience with it
4. fine with liquid cooling but dont care for lit fans.  it will be in a fully enclosed case by Fractal.

looking for another future proof pc to last 5 to 7 years with only an occasional gpu upgrade.

Can the wife be seduced negotiated logically convinced into contributing to the budget?  :coolsmiley:
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

I can't contribute any advice to actually building a rig, so I'm trying to think outside the box: diplomacy!  :D

There is no diplomacy with The Wife. Do or do not.

A new rig is a lot cheaper than a divorce. Just saying.  :-X

You really need to put a number on a budget in order to get on target meaningful advice, as prices on certain components are in a great deal of fluctuation now. I'd say generally though, if you don't need the latest and greatest CPU and GPU, then now is a good time to buy since retailers are trying to unload inventory of the last generation, with the intel Raptor Lake CPUs, new line of AMD CPUs, Nvidia 40XX and Radeon 7000 GPUs, having recently been released.

somewhere around $2500 I think should cover it.

You're keeping your current monitor?

I just built this quickly on Cyberpower PC for $2,415. You might want to spend a little bit more and get a bit of a better GPU. I believe the 6750 XT is akin to a 3070. For a couple hundred more you can get a 6900 or 6950 XT, which would be a worthy upgrade.
