I agree with everything else you said but I would still recommend an aftermarket cooler with a 3900x. I tried using stock but its loud and runs hot versus aftermarket. Getting a Noctua dropped my temps like 20 degrees at load and its barely audible relative to the Wraith Prism. If you're spending 3900x sort of bux then get the better cooler.
That's true. My friend bought an NH-U12S and likewise saw a pretty nice drop in temps but it's still great that AMD at least provides a nice looking cooler across all ranges which are functional unlike Intel.

From what I understand you have to factor in a REALLY good cooling system in to the cost of the 10900k which just blows any value out of the water. H115i and NH-D15s were what it took to keep this furnace "cool" when any kind of work was put to it.
Meanwhile you can slap on the stock cooler of a 3900x and pocket the difference. AMD also unfucked itself with now including the 4000 series support on older generation boards and the fourth generation is (allegedly) coming in with some pretty hefty gains.

We used to have an elliptical. Younger me thought it would be a cost savings compared to a gym membership - and maybe it was, for a while. But then the machine broke down and it was going to cost $600+ to fix. Meanwhile, Planet Fitness opened up nearby with a very competitive membership fee.
The elliptical lasted 4 or 5 years, so we did get our money out of it, but the gym provides better variety and the membership card doesn't take up half the floor space in my bedroom.

hhahaa Well I just point to the steam hardware survey in cases like these.
95% of gaming is Windows, 86% is Windows 10, 4% is OSX
Linux gaming.. 0.8% and people with VR 2%
And even better, OSX has a registry equiv. called defaults (configs manager) and the Launch Services Database (file allocations) too. So less than 1% of PC's on this gaming planet have no registry or registry-like system whatsoever. ^^
So yes, Registry in 2020 is definitely a thing, and the more complex an OS gets the more they need equivalents, maybe done better, but still same principles.

2 hours isn't enough. A lot of games you need that much time to get setup and learn what the hell is going on. Never mind if the game isn't fully developed or a bugfest, how well it runs on your particular rig, etc. Give people a full day.

Dang it, I told myself I wasn’t going to buy anything until my backlog was reduced, but FarCry 5 for $5 was too much for my weak constitution to handle and I caved.

For free? Nah, not even then. Didn't really care for it. And I hated that jungle map.
The one that you had to run around the edges of the swamp on, forever?
Yeah, hated that....
