Very nice!

Braided cables and new PSU are are on my list as well. I'm a long-time PC gamer, and up until recently I've never cared for the window cases and pretty lights. But I just did my first one last month (pics a few posts above), and once you start down that path... <sigh>

I am finally taking the leap & going to build a PC of my own. Is it always this hard to find GPUs? It seems like every retailer is completely sold out.

Yes the chip shortage has the market upended right now. You picked kind of a bad time to try and build something. I have not seen a gpu card on a store shelf or listed online other then a reseller at 100% or more markup since the middle of last year and there is no talk of it getting better for some odd reason.

I have been on evga's waiting list now for over 3 months on several different model cards with no luck. I have pretty much given up hope on upgrading right now and if my card goes i will buy a quadro card as the still seem to be somewhat available, because i would rather suffer with outdated tech then give some worthless idiot profit on reselling..

It also doesn't help that the crypto mining community and scalpers are taking up stock, and using bots to snatch up GPUs online faster than you can blink.

I also put in reservations on various websites, including EVGA. Only B&H Photo has pulled through. Since January, I was able to grab an RTX 2060 Super and an RTX 3070, and just last week I got notified that another 3070 I put in for also became available (which I declined). I could'a been an a$$ and bought it then put it up on eBay at a huge markup, but...
[Show spoiler]I'm not an a$$

Added 2 new PCs to the family... the OMEN 25L and 30L.



Still hate HP, but this was the cheapest way to get a 3070 and 3060 Ti.



HP OMEN 30L w/ GTX 3070, Intel i7 11700k w/ water cooler, 16 GB Hyper X DDR4-3200 RAM, 600 watt power supply, 2TB NVMe M.2 SSD and a 2TB HDD, Logitech G613 and G903 wireless Mechanical keyboard and mouse. This is now my main set-up, connected to my 65 inch LG CX OLED (pics in profile).

put the 3060 Ti in my old custom build I posted 3 years ago, along with the 512GB WD Black NVMe M.2 SSD, and 16GB RAM...



because the processor in that computer is still much better than the AMD Ryzen 5 3500 in the new OMEN 25L.



so I put my old 980 Ti in that, along with my smallest 256GB WD Black NVMe M.2 SSD and a 2TB HDD. Only running 8GBs of RAM from my old HP Envy Phoenix.

All of these are connected to 65 inch OLEDs.

I recently moved and shuffled some things around. I picked up a new ultrawide for my main PC and it left my OLED without a partner so of course I used that as an excuse for a new build:

It's a great case. Keeps things quiet and cool, and the RGB is a nice touch.
