Thanks for this!i’m just wondering if you have any alternative graphics card suggestions?i‘m from Canada so I’m a bit over budget with that one. Also, I was told that having four 4gb sticks of RAM is preferable to two 8gb sticks; is that appliable here?

2x8GB > 4x2GB

Check Ebay Canada for an RTX 3060, RTX 2060, or even a GTX 1660 Ti (just don't get a used card off of ebay).
