I wanted a dedicated PC with enough threads, disk and ram to run a lot of vms and do fun stuff on Linux. Never pulled the trigger. The only way to get one AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 was to order an AMD Radeon Pack (Vega 64, Ryzen R7 1700X, Gigabyte X370 K7), so now I would have 2 Ryzen systems. The pack was shipped two weeks later. Vega had no problem clearing customs, but CPU+Mobo were stuck on customs for 1+ month. Got them last week and started gathering parts. So now swapping/reusing parts I started building Tongas and F2004.
Tongas was a fictional Robot in a local TV network children show when I was a kid. For the fans of retro gaming that is a QuickShot 1 (Atari 800XL Joystick) on his body.
