What CPU and RAM do you consider the "sweet spot" as far as price vs. performance right now?

14600K should be out in a month or two so that paired with this RAM would be a good combination: https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-48gb/p/N82E16820374484

If you prefer AMD, 7800X3D with DDR5-6000 CL30 is pretty good too (benefit is that the mobo will receive BIOS updates till at least 2026 and you may drop in faster CPUs with tangible improvements into the same mobo for a very economical upgrade path).

Craigslist, Facebook, or charity auction(SA or GW, you guys can figure the names out but I'm not about to let the whole google search community find out).
