You're looking at around a month total.

Special ordered the Antec? That may well extend that timeline.

The mobo is the cheapest one. You might consider a little more there. The ROG Strix perhaps? but if it's not in the budget, it'll do.

For $17, upgrade to the Corsair Vengeance RAM. That's a no-brainer. The warranty is lifetime.

The 5700 XT compares pretty well to the 2060 SUPER for 1080p gaming.

What cooler? You should strongly consider the Corsairs, as they are warranted for 5 years instead of one.

If this is strictly a gaming rig, you could get the 9700K and get very much the same performance. The saving would allow some of the other better parts for about same total.
Just sayin'.

This is actually going to be primarily used for programming/development. Looking to run multiple HD monitors, have a server running concurrently, and do some low yield model training (AI/analytics). Of course, if I wanted to go all in there I should have gotten multiple graphics cards.. but don't have the budget for that yet.

You may have a point with the motherboard - will relook at that.

The 390M is micro ATX. Not a bad board, just smaller than full ATX, and limited as to available ports and headers. Some people just overlook that detail. Does have 4 RAM slots, though, and may be just fine for you.

For your purposes, You should know that RAM is quite inexpensive right now, and you will benefit quite a bit stepping up to 32GB. Again the Corsair is advised for the lifetime warranty on it.

The DS cooler is not a poor, cheap part by any means, but the private label means no extended factory warranty. But you should certainly get the dual fan for that CPU. Would let you overclock it which would be of great help for your use. DS is expert in that.

However, you should not overclock the GPU, it's not going to help. It's very capable of multi-monitor performance without making it run hotter for no real gain, IMO.

Hope it helps.
