Kinda weird that this never got made into a topic in this area. Wondering what kind of custom machines people are running and how much HP they have under the hood.

Spoiler

Ryzen 7 2700X 4.0ghz

Crosshair VI Hero Wi-Fi board

EVGA 1080ti FTW3 Hybrid

32gb RAM @3200hmz

Crucial P1 1tb NVMe drive

Corsair RM1000x PSU

Good ol optical drive since this is one of the few modern cases that can hold it.

I built mine back in 2017, and have swapped and tinkered with it ever since. I work in IT, specifically the department that refreshes old equipment with new stuff, so I come across things that have just barely been out of warranty and are still good, so the actual worth of my PC is not even close to what I paid. I think I got my GTX 1080 for around $400 at the time, which is super cheap compared to right now. I must have gotten lucky with a sale.

I definitely want to upgrade the processor to something a bit more beefy at some point but it's fine for now. Also, notice I have a 450W power supply. I have so much crap running on this thing with 0 issues over the last 3 years, yet so many people tell me to upgrade it. I think if I upgraded the CPU then I'd definitely upgrade the power, but this is proof that way too many people overspend on power because of horror stories they've heard. (now watch, now that I've jinxed it, my PSU will blow later today)

I completely upgraded my build a few months ago to 12th gen Intel and a 3070 Ti. Wasn't cheap but I found the GPU for near MSRP which was a major win at the time.

And if you waited a longer longer you would of saved urself $$$$ 😄

I got similar to you except I went for a ryzen 5900x and 64gb  DDR - 3600 memory.

DDR5 is nice just too expensive.

Maybe a bit but I ended up getting my 3070 Ti used for about the same as they are going for new right now. The previous owner only used it for 3 months.
