Respectable
ok so the case comes with 3 fans.1 at the back and 2 at the front.The case supports up to 9 fans,and if i were you i would fill all those 9 places with fans,but if u cant buy 6 fans and only 3,i would put 2 new fans at the front (top and middle possition),1 new fan at the rear and 3 coolers that come with the case up top.If you want to populate all 9 of those fan spots,just buy another 3 fan kit that i put in your build that i edited.

Sounds like a plan, thank you very much!

At least wait for RTX 3000. You don't necessarily have to wait for Ryzen 4000.
At higher resolutions, the bulk of the workload is driven by the gpu and less by the cpu. Going down in resolution, and it's the other way around.
Sounds reasonable, thanks for your time!

Oh, when we all thought that the RTX 3000 series and Zen 3 chips were going to be readily available...
and Zen 3 was Ryzen 4000...
So many people's hopes were dashed;
