So I've been working away from home for the past 3 months, finally get to go back home November 4th and will have a computer to put together, at least I thought so. I've been buying parts and researching what Id like to have in my PC build and I have come to a bit of a dilemma. I am going with AMD, but have not chosen a CPU, GPU and Cooling solution yet, that's what I'm having a hard time deciding on. I would like to go with Ryzen 5900XT and the RX 6800XT, but I think it will be hard to get both when they launch Nov 5th and 18th, which probably means Ill be waiting to build my PC until I can get my hands on these components. So I was thinking maybe i could just go with the Ryzen 3900XT and an RX 5700XT to get up and running, once the Ryzen 5900XT and the RX 6800XT are readily available I can easily upgrade, not that the upgrade is needed its just a want more than a need at this point ha. As for cooling I do eventually want to do a custom water loop using EK waterblocks and components, but for now maybe a simple AIO for the CPU is enough. do I wait or do I just pull the trigger on what's available now. That's basically where I'm at with my build. Also I'm not dead set on the RX 5700XT, its just that its cheaper than a 2070 super or 2060 super for not too much performance difference, I did think about just getting the 2060 for the time being for $429 CAD as the plan is to upgrade to the latest and greatest once its available. I should also look into a decent monitor.

i think amd won't have availability issues with the 5000 cpu series, so you might be able to grab one on the 5th of november.

as for gpu, if you plan to replace it within a few months anyway, get a second hand one, so it doesn't lose much value when you resell it.

why do you need 64gb ram?

Good point thanks, second hand card is a great idea. I dont think there is actually any benefit to go more than 32gb is there? Ive only ordered 32gb after I made the list but left it in the list as an option.

You mention 3D programs and CAD design as a (partial) use case. Depending on how heavy your cad design is, 64GB might not be the worst decision. However if it is only basic CAD design with not too many parts, 32GB will be just fine.
