Hello everyone I hope you're doing well.

I'd like to build a desktop PC, but I have no clue what components to buy since I've been out of tune regarding price/ performance ratio for a few years.
I'm thinking about getting one of the new RTX 3000's series (RTX 3080 to be precise), but they are sold out where I live, would it be worth the wait?
My current budget sits around 1500€
Any opinions/ advice will be highly appreciated.

Here's a useful list for guidance:

Approximate Purchase Date: This week, but can wait

Budget Range: 1500€

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Programming, etc.

Overclocking: Not thinking about it

SLI or Crossfire: Not thinking about it

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Monitor: No idea (144Hz or 240Hz)

CPU: Intel Core i-5 10600K 4.1GHz

CPU Cooler: No idea

GPU: RTX 3080 (preferably from ASUS)

Motherboard: No idea, although I've heard about the ASRock Z490 Taichi being a good choice

RAM: 16GB (No idea what brand)

Storage: Maybe an NVMe for OS and SSD for games and files in general

Case: No idea

PSU: No idea

Thanks for your attention!

Entirely depends. New AMD GPUs are incoming too - although likely to have the same supply issues of RTX 3000.

I've done some research and I've got new, more specific, questions to ask.
Having that in mind, this thread is now useless.
Can you please delete it?
Thank you!
