Pics of the setup!
I might work on that. I'm not the most organized, so it's not really pic worthy right now.

I have no idea how to manage all these cables I have either. I mean, I've got a tv, monitor, ps5, xbox one, comcast cable box, pc, subwoofer + speakers, an optical splitter, a modem, 2 routers, and there's probably something I'm still missing. All of that is placed on the same wall and within about 4 feet of each other. I look at the rats nest I've got and don't even know where to begin. I cleaned it up a little bit a few months ago, but it could still use a lot more work.

I've got an entertainment center with cabinets and cable routing holes so that I'm able to hide the rats' nest. That's the secret! Sweep the mess under the bed.

I fixed the 120hz problems I was having. It wasn't the cable, but I've got a nice braided hdmi cable from spigen now. I just had the wrong option selected in the nvidia panel. I didn't realize the menu had a 'tv' option and a 'pc' option. I scrolled down further and after selecting a pc resolution it gave me the option for 120hz.

So picked up a Gigabyte B550i Aorus and AMD Ryzen 5600G. Computer is running great now. The APU has plenty of performance for me to stream 4k and multitask.

Think I found out what my previous problem of random shutdowns were after removing the old CPU from the socket to take pictures to sell. 1-2 pins on the motherboard appeared to be bent. I took some small tweezers and got them back looking straight again.

If anyone here has a NAS that needs more space, or is looking to build one, or just wants some cheap storage, Best Buy has 14TB easy stores on sale right now for $200 (about 50% off). They limit to 3 online but I was able to get a 4th in the store. Tou can shuck off the casing and then you have a regular 3.5" SATA HDD on the inside.
