There's supposed to be a B760 DDR5 version of this board and if there's a significant savings between this board and that Asus board I might go with this one and a single 2TB SSD.

CPU Ryzen 7000 series with 3D V-cache for sure.

Edit: SSD is QLC crap and does not have DRAM. Also 4080 is way overpriced.

SSD prices will change next month.

Also if AMD releases 3D cache Ryzens next month, there is not much reason to consider Intel anymore.

Again I would stay clear of QLC drives.

Since AMD is launching Ryzen 7000 3Ds this month, there is no reason to go with dead end Intel platform.
