Next years upgrade recommendation please.

Budget (including currency): $800 USD max

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Planetside 2, Halo, Call of Duty, Anno

Other details 

Currently  my system is as follows.

Ryzen 9 3900X * Gigabyte X570 AORUS Ultra * 32GB G.SKILL Trident Z Neo DDR4 3600 16-16-16-36 * GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Super * Fractal Design Define R6 USB-C * Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 500GB M.2 NVMe * Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB 7200RPM * Seasonic PRIME PX-750 80+ Platinum, LG 27GN750-B 27'' Monitor

 

Now I plan on trying to do a max 800 dollar upgrade every year so for next year I am wondering which would give me the most bang for my buck?

A 1TB 4.0 PCIE NVME with a new Ryzen 5900X due soon or a new video card either Nvidia 3080 or one of the new AMD cards assuming they are close enough in performance to the Nvidia 3080.

While I find this post silly to the point of head scratching,

 

Buy the 3080 next year, then replace the 3900X the year after?

 

Why you would want to upgrade annually like that... beyond me.  Especially if your moniker is accurate.

Part of it is because I plan on passing the parts onto my brother to upgrade his system over time as well.

That the current games though but there are bound to be new ones coming that I will want to play especially since I am getting back into gaming more after about 7 to 8 years.

Then upgrade once those games are out? Upgrading without any real reason makes no sense. Especially given the fact that your system is still top notch.

Then you could buy him new components, if he needs an upgrade?

Thanks for reading all this by the way!

By the way, my desktop is a docked laptop. Get over it, No seriously, I have an exterrnal monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, ethernet and cooling fans all connected. Using it feels no different to a desktop, it works for several hours if the power goes out, and disconnecting just a few cables gives me something I can take on the go. There's enough power for all games I play and it even copes with basic (and some not-so-basic) video editing. Give it a go - you might just love it.

Nevermind then.

I clearly came to the wrong forum to get an answer to my question.
