Honestly not a bad route. I always see everyone reccomending some high end hardware for the most basic tasks anymore.
I think it all comes down to each users specific use case. I'm currently sitting on my "budget" Ryzen.
Does EVERYTHING I need...
Closest for me is 100 miles north. So 200 mile round trip. Even driving the car (30mpg+), i'm lookin at $10-$15 in gas (depending on price of the day) and probably about 4 hours of my time if i don't stop anywhere else.
