Default Tucker's New PC

I'll definite wait for the release of Intel Ark Alchemist GPUs before I buy the next PC. 1 more major competitor can dramatically change the tech market. Whichever the sales price of 1 Nvidia Geforce 3080 Ti or 1 AMD Radeon 6900 XT today, I may be able to get both with the same total price several months later.

You consistently declare your intentions to wait months before you buy. Why do you keep reminding us?
Do you think we're not smart enough to remember your viewpoint? That we'll think you really mean it if you say it ten times instead of twice?

I only want to make sure I don't buy the wrong hardware and regret for it later on because my father will most certainly not letting me purchasing 2 computers within the same year. I'm currently aiming on 3070 Ti 16 GB or 3080 ti 12 GB (release date of Jan 2022), but it's very possible something better will be there 2~3 months later.

However I never got the feedbacks about the pros and cons of the Geforce 4000 series(Q4 2022) which has the 5nm structure. Once I totally make up my mind, I won't ask anymore.

Sorry, I'm the 1 that is not smart enough to figure out which computer will be good enough to bring those exponents up to the desired TF bits and P-1 bounds - https://www.mersenne.org/report_expo...1287000&full=1. It'll be the best if the highest TF level can be finished within 1 full day.

Any computer with a bit of RAM can do the TF and P-1 that you want. Who cares if it takes 1 day or 3? There is no such thing as "fast enough". That measurement is about the user, not the machine. Claiming you "need" a specific speed to do work is a really weird way to be impatient, when you can do the work *now*.

You can get them done now, or wait a year to do them a little bit faster.

Hint: they get done sooner if you do them now, on whatever hardware you have. A budget GPU does a whole lot more work than "I'm waiting until I won't have any regrets." That time never comes.

I bought my current PC from CyberPowerPC in year 2013, so I know they are a trustworthy company. The 2 links below are the 2 PC models I prefer the most at the moment, but I need the opinions of other users.

If you wait until 2024 there will be a better machine available.

Nobody but you cares what hardware you get. We don't need to hear every thought that goes through your head as you ponder your decision. If you have questions - ask them, directly. Or do your own research.

Both appear to be good deals. What would you most like to do with the new PC?

Most users have probably already knew the Mersenne projects I target to complete. With Intel 12900K, 1 M168M PRP will be finished within 6~7 days. I don't know whether Windows 11 will slow it down or not. Suppose I get a Geforce 3070 Ti 16GB(Release Date: Jan 11, 2022), that will be ideal for most of the strategic video games that my friends play too while not spending too much. Of course, the trial factoring speed will be around 3100 GHz/Day.

If I can buy the Geforce Lovelace 4000 cards like in year 2024 or 2025 when they are no longer the frontier high ends and replace the older GPU without having to change the motherboard, that'll be ideal. I won't know about the roadmap of Geforce Hopper 5000 until at least 1 year later from now on.

Attached screenshot below, I already cropped out the parts of the email that include my personal information(Home Address, Billing).
