    Really a bit moot at this point as we don’t know when or even if V3 will see the light of day.

    It will be ready when it's ready, and I'll die when I die

    Thanks

    No idea if it'll ever even exist but if it does I'd probably go for something between the two, like an i5 10400f. The Ryzen system is overkill unless you play other, current gen games.

    "Current gen" games became previous generation games very, very quickly.
    Any top-spec hardware bought today will become old-spec just as quickly.
    Bottom line - there is no such thing as "overkill" when it comes to hardware. Buy what you can afford at the time.

    Especially GPUs. Really wish I’d bought an RTX2060 or similar when I got my 1650 just over a year ago. My current CPU and motherboard would probably have throttled it a bit but would have been a better investment, especially now GPUs are in short supply and when stock does come in have the price marked way up.

    That was kinda why I made the "unless you play non-train simulator games" comment since the train simulator genre (train sim world aside) hasn't really progressed very much in hardware requirements over the last decade or two nor is it likely to any time soon. If all you play is ORTS/MSTS/Run 8, you'd see virtually no difference between an Intel i5 based system and a Ryzen system whilst the latter would cost more. I suppose if you just have cash to burn and it makes no difference though, why not go for the better option?

    Well Train Sim World pushes the hardware a bit as does Derail Valley - the latter doesn't do well on less than 16Gb RAM and a GTX 1650 4Gb or equivalent GPU.
