UPDATE

Got the Gygabyte rtx 2060 pro OC in white finish. Installed it and to my surprise, up and running straight away - benchmarked Redshift and performed better than a 1080 (crazy considering I have a slight bottleneck on the GPU and it's on PCI 2.0). The 2060 was definitely the best bang for buck purchase. 2070 is £150 more - not worth it right now. The 2060 will be moving into my next machine too until I upgrade again.

I've seen that the Zen 2 Threadrippers are being delayed which sucks - my plan is to still upgrade properly to a Threadripper system when prices drop a bit.

New monitor being looked into - LG 34GK950F - this will be my current and next rig monitor. My current monitor is a bottleneck.

The Xeon is the next step - eager to see what Computex has to offer in a couple of weeks.
