So I think the title explains it all. I'm looking to upgrade my PC for the first time in about 5 or 6 years. I still have the trusty old FX-8370 paired up with an RX480, and I have had this set up all the way back when I was making YouTube content and had a small sponsorship with AMD (which I am still extremely thankful for). To put this into perspective this was happening back when I was in high school and I am about to graduate with my bachelors in mathematics  


I'm looking into getting back into the YouTube scene with a full revamp of my current PC (which you can still see pics up on this forum), as well as use the upgraded computing power for my mathematics research.


BUT one issue, I cannot find an Ryzen 3900X at MSRP, they're all sold out, or about double their original market value!
