I like your choices, security123. (y)

1. A NVIDIA rtx 3070/3070Ti whenever there's one, just one, available. Prob. the 3070 as my PSU is borderline for watts.
2. Monitor--27" 144Hz, 1440p. LG or ASUS brand but best to keep an open mind. Black Friday deals sound good but will most likely be ordering online. Don't like going into stores any more, for obvious reasons. 😷🤧

Building for my youngest niece who starts school next year. Budget is $500. She has her sister's old peripherals to use.
1) Asrock X300 ~ $177
2) Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G ~ $223
3) Team Elite 2x8GB DDR4 3200 SODIMM ~ $51
4) Team Group MP33 M.2 2280 256GB SSD ~ $49
Went with Crucial bits as Team wasn't on sale here.
So far so good.

I have been thinking for awhile, that a new NVMe SSD would be nice. Probably Samsung 970 evo. The prices has been dropping so much, that it start to look reasonable. For 65$ at Amazon I can get a 250 GB. So maybe I surprice myself with a little Christmas present.

I am interested in this Notebook... seems promising for what I am looking for :)

Apple M1 CPUs seem promising too for my Graphic designs though, specially in the future when Adobe software like photoshop or illistrator are natively supported by this CPU.
