Yeah but 20 years ago was 2001, consumer SSD's couldn't do shit until at the very least 10 years ago. 

I went from a spinning disk to an SSD over 10 years ago, and the upgrade was massive, and entirely worth it.  They weren't large at the time, but they were absolutely functionally worth it.

 

Also, the 3060 TI /DOES/ have 8GB VRAM.  https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/graphics-cards/30-series/rtx-3060-3060ti/

 

The 5600x CPU is a great choice, but you want to find it at MSRP.  It should be 300$ or a bit under.  Anyone charging 400$ is scamming you.

 

this is what i have so far

Do you have an SSD?

 

If not, buy one.  Running a PC off a spinning disk should have died 20 years ago.

 

Also that 5600x is scalped as hell.  It is NOT worth 400$

B550, and mini-ITX. Just gotta make sure the product has good reviews and has any features you want, such as oneboard wi-fi.

SSDs weren't even good until 5 years ago.

The one's you choose originally, but you could go cheaper and get something like a Ryzen 3600 and you won't lose anything given you have a 3060 Ti. I was able to secure a Ryzen 5 3600 for $200 (their MSRP is moving between $160 and $200) at my local best buy, they had 4 in stock. When I went back two days later to return a keyboard I bought at the same shopping trip, all three were still there. This was in december when the shortage was still very much real.

So if you have a microcenter or a Best Buy near you, you can head there to have your best chances at securing a CPU and other components at MSRP.

I wouldn't suggest buying a case at a best buy. I did, the case was great, but I had very serious doubts during the shopping trip if I was buying the right one. Going to Newegg for a case is a good idea.

IDK where I thought it had 6GB, I swear I kept on hearing it was 6GB, clearly I was wrong. I thought they used the same memory bus on both the 3060 and 3060 Ti, meaning it would have to be a multiple of 6GB. Guess I was wrong.

Too much. You can find it in other places for closer to $225

No I can't, but brick and mortar stores are much more likely to house a R5 3600 at only $200. Assuming it is in stock. Without knowing your location I can't actually help you much with brick and mortar stores, and tbh I have done too much for you. Not to sound rude, but I have my own life to take care of, and while I like to help forum members, going shopping for you is above my pay grade of $0/hour.
