Might depend where you live, but Newegg stuff usually has shipped same day/next day for me, and then arrives a day later. I'm in Toronto though and their office is in Mississauga as far as I know.

I wouldn't personally buy extra warranty on PC parts, but that's just me. Maybe I've been really lucky, but haven't had anything break in recent years, the last RMA I can remember doing was back with the Radeon HD4850 as they had a single slot heatsink and overheated.

for myself I had issues with delivery to my door when ever I ordered from Newegg and if I remember correctly ( its beens a few years) you couldn't pick the service, I prefer CP that way I can just get it sent to the PO less then a block away from my place in BC, this actually was why I Stopped using new egg

I really got an itch to upgrade but with Zen3 + 3D VCache just a few months away, I don't know if it's a good time since I'm already on a 1600AF w/ 3060TI.

I will be curious to see how any zen 3 revisions get supported. My expectation is 5 series boards only. When zen 3 came out it seemed like amd was going to cut some boards for support, but eventually gave in…however I seem to remember reading that that would be it. We will see!

I don't expect my X470 to be supporting any kind of revised Zen 3 / 5K series. It will be a new board + CPU upgrade for me and the 1600AF will be replacing my server (i5-6400 + Z170).

An update - all good news so far. All of the parts arrived, and have been assembled. I decided to go with a new Win10 build, versus cloning. I'm now in the process of transferring a couple of drives into the new box. The VMs run well. Over all, this is a very fast machine, compared to what I have been using. The only item of note was that by default, the CSM in the bios was off, and as a result, the machine would not recognize the NVMe as a usable drive. Turning CSM on fixed that problem.
