Hi,
This my security configuration for 2020, probably 2021 too. :D

Also I made my own WireGuard VPN server. Spending my free credit...

WireGuard + Pi-Hole (3 million blacklist entries) + Unbound.

I have similar hardware specifications to yours. I'm highly interested in an rtx 3070 of some kind but it's been such a circus and at times, a rip-off with these other 3xxx. So, I'm hoping my gtx 1080 FE hangs in there for a while longer--when supply comes closer to demand. 😬 They're nice gpus, though, for being 4.5 years old now.

I use that combination too in the past but switch to NextDNS as PiHole can't do that NextDNS provide.
Also 3 million is just overblocking.

Password manager: KeePass Portable.
For security reason you should use install version so its protected with UAC.

Actually I don't need an antivirus.
I would say you need. I don't see any Default-Deny or other SRP protection in your setup so you should take a look at Hard_Configurator from Andy.
Else good setup

I just changed SSD. Thats my change. 😀 About RTX's, Xbox Series X says no to me.

I know NextDNS, good choice too. About overblocking, thats your experience maybe. I'm pretty comfortable with that, also I have many whitelists.

Just keeping my notes. Not important things. Thanks. 👍

Thank you for your concern.

OK, but I don't need Default-Deny, SRP or Hard_Configurator too.
