3 x Sunon 30x10mm fan as I broke the lead off the only one I had and I can't reach the PCB to repair it. :(

Mean Well RSP-320-24 PSU. Didn't want to pay $20 shipping. So added this to bring my Mouser order past $100 to get free shipping :p. Want to do a comparison between it and a non-PFC Mean Well PSU w/ LED lights tho to see how much of an impact PFC has for efficiency for LEDs.

Some sweatproof bluetooth earbuds for my workouts from Amazon. I'm amazed, $29.11 taxes in and same day delivery.

Not my latest purchase per se, but my son bought a Secret Labs Titan and man that's a nice chair. Kind of makes me want one too! Make my creaky staples brand gaming chair look/feel like junk in comparison. But then again mine was $150 and his was $600 so it should.
Been really happy with my titan chair as well, lumbar instead of pillow was one of the selling points for me too. Still a pillow for headrest though. I got mine however for around $350 shipped with boxing day deals or something like that not the $600 you mentioned. And having gone black with black stitching it doesn't stand out like a lot of the other gamery chairs. I sat in pretty much every chair at staples and any other store I could think of.

I think the Omegas were on sale and he got a Titan. Unfortunately its not boxing day and the pandemic has pushed prices up.

For me I think I would get an XL because I want a little more room in the seat and shoulder area. Plus the heavy duty hardware.

The drop of 5600x processors at my local MemEx was tempting but didn't feel like a real upgrade from a 2700x. The 5800x I just brought home (with $50 discount) was too hard to pass up.

Was tempted to hold out for 5900/5950 but price difference and inventory or lack there of hard to justify.

Plus they make it easy for you to decide if you need to build a pc right away. lol

No fresh build simple CPU swap. 2700x out 5800x in and now I'm unlikely to touch the motherboard/ram/cpu for the next 3-4 years.

More liekly to swap out the PSU or GPU than any other component now. Already spun up with new CPU in place started running some smoke tests with CTR to see what it will do. I think i hit 4.6GHz on all cores and fans ramped up to medium to keep it at 60'c but was getting late and not about to let that run unattended overnight.

Took a fit and completed my early 2021 PC buying spree with a Dell G5 5700 XT desktop (500W w/ clear door model). It's a sad state of affairs when the only way to get your hands on a GPU is a pre-built.

That said, I'm looking forward to playing with it.... they're a super small package so chances are I'll need to do some kind of cooling modifications, but I don't mind doing a bit of work to get it working well.
