I just ordered most parts for my new machine...

Case: beQuiet Pure Base 500
Motherboard: MSI B550M PRO-VDH (M-ATX)
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
CPU cooler: beQuiet Dark Rock Pro 4 (double fan)
RAM: Kit 2x16 Gb Patriot Viper Steeel CL18
Main SSD: 2 TB Crucial P5 NVMe M.2 PCIe gen 3.0
PSU: 750 W beQuiet 80+ Gold

GPU would ideally be the AMD Radeon 6800XT but they are pretty difficult to get right now. Only possibility is to pay 150% or more (I have already seen them at 225%) its recommended price. AMD official shop is always out of stock and every time they do a drop, it is gone in less than a minute. Damned crypto miners and their bot nets...

I will be using my current GPU for a while until I get the 6800XT, 6800 or 6700XT

Keyboard is something I will renew as well... but I want to be able to feel the differences before buying one, since I want to go on mechanical with good switches for the first time. But I want to avoid loudness if possible (any recommendations?)

All in all... I am happy and pretty excited, I expect the hardware to come middle of next week...

I just now have to find a legal (and ideally cheap) Win 10 Pro licence since I don't want to use the HomeEdition assigned to my old PC.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
