So all this assembling PC thing is a continuation for more than 30 years now.
Good lord has it been that long. Our first system was an 8088. We stuck with that until my mom finally bought us a 486DX/50 (not DX2). That was a $2500 system. We had some issues with it due to heat and I think it ended up needing repair at one point or another. The DX50 ran pretty warm.

Same here - started with an 8088 tandy 1000, then an ibm ps/2 80286 (microchannel!), then a 486 dx2 66, Pentium 120, k6 266, athlon 750 (slot a!), Thunderbird 1ghz, athlonxp 1800+, athlon64 3000+, 64x2 3800+, phenom II 955 be, r7 1700, 2700x, 3700x, 3950x.... and a few laptops mixed in there. I call the time between the 955be and the r7 1700 the pc "dark ages" - I spent that time playing with the cell BE in the playstation 3 and the oculus dk1 before amd and the oculus cv1 reignited my interest in PCs.

You lucky son of a gun, an 8088, I only got an 8086 to start with. Lol. And an Orange monochrome monitor to boot. In all honesty my first computer was an Atari 800XL then up to a 1200XL.

I got my hands on a newer 1600 AF as you know and I was ask how that cpu would run Fortnite .. so I put an RX 570 4Gb in and loaded most current driver and I think the thing is doing very well for itself not to be overclocked as most people would be more interested in the DELL or HP type system . I know noting about this gaming lol ,,

I'm perfectly content with my 3600x. 4.5ghz single core and 4.1-4.4 multi-core depending on the load. Noticeable upgrade from a poorly clocking 2600.

Upgraded from a 7700k @ 4.9 to a 3700x and it's ok. I'm not exactly unhappy but with a 2080ti it's turned out to be a total sidegrade for gaming; most games run the same while a couple of games like Farcry Primal and LoL are a pretty hefty downgrade even though the FPS is still plenty high.

Upgraded from a 3770K to a 3900X, been a problem free experience. Now I dont have issues when I tab out of games to do other things, plus I am ready for cyberpunk 2077 whjen it comes out.

I started with a 2700X and a X470 board, I sold the 2700X and kept the X470, popped in a 3900X and after a few bios updates its just fantastic. Now I cant wait to get a new GPU whenever Nvidia comes out with their new lineup!

That’s a self inflicted wound if there ever was one.
