I would like a table saw and some DDR4 3200 for the AM4 HTPC system I am building. A Harmony Hub would be appreciated as well. I would also love some Anandtech swag. I've been reading and commenting at this place since it was still on Geocities and Anand wrote all the articles personally.
I miss his writing, hope he is doing well. (Not that I have any problems with Ryan, he is doing a good job.)

7nm AMD stuff, like a high end Navi! We need some good competition for GPUs.

I'd like to have better connections with my family and friends.

A 200 megapixel display with 1Khz refresh rate wouldn't hurt either.

Like AT&T Fiber 1000? Unfortunately they will still expect you to come to Christmas dinner.

My wish list, with the following tentative parts list. (Note that I have tried to keep the wish list somewhat sane, meaning less than $3,000. In parentheses below, I have listed what I would buy if money were no object.)

(I mostly do word-processing and light games, but occasionally, I run statistical regressions that take several hours to run on a 4 core processor, but which are almost perfectly linearizable, i.e. whose processing time almost perfectly scales with core-count.)

Gigabyte X399 Designare EX (rev. 1.0) sTR4 AMD X399

AMD 1st gen Threadripper 1950X 16-core
(And if I am *really* dreaming, a 2nd gen 2990WX 32-core)

Enermax Liqtech TR4 II 280 AIO liquid cooler

SAMSUNG 970 EVO M.2 2280 2TB
(And if I am *really* dreaming, a 970 Pro. Or heck, a 1.5 TB Intel Optane 905P.)

ASRock Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX 570
(And if I am *really* dreaming, an RX Vega 64. I have a FreeSync monitor, so I'm sticking with AMD.)

Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 1000W 80+ Power Supply

32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) ECC Unbuffered RAM by Nemix
(And if I am *really* dreaming, 128 GB (8x16GB).)

Undecided on case, but I want it to have silencing foam:
Enermax EQUILENCE
Thermaltake Suppressor F51
Phanteks Eclipse P400S
APEX Silent Edition Apexgaming G1
be quiet! SILENT BASE 800
Fractal Design Define XL R2

I want to do a lot of giving, and not as much getting.

I would like the CDN $ to be on par with US $(75cents to 1$ US) so that computers parts will drop in price in Canada! Also my salary would be worth 25% more.

I'd love to get some new computer components... Maybe some RAM, since that's a bit out of control price-wise atm

I just want to update my video or my monitor. They're getting a little long in the tooth by now.
