Well, new rig, check. Like a year ago, but check, anyway. And I did better than what I planned at the time, going to third-gen Ryzen and X570.My wishlist is rather long, but the most important things are:
A somewhat new rig (thinking Ryzen 5 2600X, at least 16 GB of RAM, and the rest will probably be cannibalized from my current system and some other spare components)
A more powerful graphics card (Vega 64 or GTX 1080 at least).
A new monitor, 2560x1440, IPS, between 24 - 27"
Now adding to that old wishlist an extra hard drive. Eyeing Seagate's IronWolfs at 6 or 8 TB.
Although it's a wishlist, I'm kinda reconsidering the monitor. The market for that here has always been, well, shit. There is no 1440p display available as far as I can search, most panels are TN, or they just jump straight to 4K, which leaves me with the HighDPI displays which I don't want to deal with due to my use of legacy apps that just can't handle that or behave rather badly. Plus HighDPI displays would force me to use scaling and I don't want to do that either. Never mind the price tags at that range.
Besides, I'm still satisfied with my current one, all things considered, so maybe I can delay it a couple years more, but I hope the dead pixel count remains at 1.
The GPU market seems to be a little bit better, but my main problem is that I'd need to sell my current one to get close to a RTX 2060 Super, which is the closest thing that doesn't feel like a sidegrade, but selling anything right now would be pretty hard, due to the economic turmoil... in any case, I'm banking on my being on 1080p 60 Hz for games, but I kinda wanted the card mostly for Folding at Home, since I'm encountering more WUs that are taking a little too much time to process
