What did the final specs come out to be?
It is the absolute worse time to be buying new gaming gear... But I too found myself in that boat this year! Ended up with an AMD 6700 XT at nearly double the MSRP. :/
Well, it certainly is for buying just a GPU which is what sort of prompted me to go for just a whole new system.

Along with a cheap mouse and keyboard, included is free shipping from the west coast plus a 5% discount overall due to the 5 to 6 week long lead times. I think they are also throwing in a free game and a mouse pad (big whoop!) I'll never use the cheapo mouse or keyboard since I use a Yama brand backlit mechanical board (the best board I've ever used since I started gaming) and a Logitech
wireless mouse but I can always put the extras on eBay.
This is the case. They have an identical case with just a white panel in front instead of tempered glass which is $30 less so I may change to it since I'm not that crazy about all those lights. I'm assuming they can be turned off if one wants. I could switch the memory to 3200 Mhz which would cancel out the $30.
exactly. They don't say it will be by Crucial--just that it will be a major brand.
