Finally upgrading my PC after many years. Going
Ryzen 5 3600
...
I do a lot of emulation, so I am excited for the extra threads and increase in IPC.

DOSBox bench thread (check my signature) lacks newer Ryzen 3xxx to compare with previous 2xxx. Would be interesting to see the results for Ryzen's update there.

After 5 years with a monitor I repaired that someone was going to throw out (it had a bad capacitor I replaced), I finally "splurged" and got me a modern 1080p monitor. My previous monitor was a 23" 1680x1050 Acer from 2007. I replaced it with this:

Still, a very economical choice. I just can't see spending more than $120 or so on a monitor for some reason. The benefits of more expensive monitors aren't as tangible to me. Not like a graphics card or a cpu, so it's lower on my upgrade totem pole.

The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.
