For VR, definite yes.

I'm thinking of upgrading I just can't just-fie spending any money since my processor over-clocks to 5.0 GHz.
Yeah mine will barely touch 4.8, and even throws a hissy fit doing it.

Zen, Zen+, and Zen 2 have all occupied the same price points. I expect Zen 3 to come in at the exact same price points customers have been conditioned to expect.
If AMD had the same, or better, single core performance and gaming performance in general, as the comparable Intel offerings, I'd buy AMD in a heartbeat. Alas, they still don't.

You do know that the Obsidian 1000D case is not only overkill, it is for people with big custom watercooling builds, and NOT aircooling like you have. So I highly urge you to reconsider your order. Good airflow in a case is important, and the Phanteks P500A and Lian Li Lancool 2 Mesh are at the top of the charts in this regard. (https://kl.ink/Phanteks-Eclipse-P500A-D-RGB-svart
) Fractal Design Define 7 XL - Black Solid is another option, but it has not got as good thermal performance - but is bigger. Your choice, but please take what I have said into consideration
I wanted to get Noctua fans, but Komplett had absolutely nothing in stock. Ended up buying RGB PWM fans since that's really what the case is designed for.
Yeah I know it's built for those kind of systems. I watched several videos and read several reviews before deciding. I might build a second PC in the case at some point, since it supports up to an E-ATX + mITX config at the same time. I've kept my current case for over 10 years; I'm sure I'll keep the 1000D for at least that long. I have the space for it and I like the look of it. Besides, the 1000D supports the most amount of fans of any case ever, from what I have seen. That means I can run many fans at low speeds to keep temps and noise levels low, instead of a few fans at high speeds.

Or am i confusing that with another case?
There is no other case I like, except the equally huge Phanteks Enthoo Elite Extreme Case. They sadly didn't have that in stock
Yes, the 1000D can accomodate 2 builds at once. Which I very well might do, just for the hell of it. Means I could have a separate PC for watching videos and shows while playing slow paced games on the main PC, and not have to use a laptop for that.
