Its a bad time to be building unless you have lots of spare cash.

Honestly, if you are going that heavy on the cpu and everything else, no point in settling for anything but the best high end gpus.

6800 xt, 6900 xt, 3080, or 3090.  Any manufacturer will do, can't be to picky right now.  Though more pricey, Nvidia seems a bit more stable for more people. 

Get in on the newegg shuffle (I got my 6800xt that way).

Use something like brobot or some other method of finding available GPUs but you have to be lightening fast to get them.

Maybe consider a greater wattage PSU also.  Technically these higher cards should be 300-350 watts, but many people believe the power spikes are causing machines to crash....1000 watts?
