I certainly want to say that this episode isn't a brag-a-thon about my new rig. I try to discuss what surprised me most about how PC building has changed in the last 10-15 years.
The parts for my build:
- AMD Threadripper 1920X 3.5 GHz 12-Core Processor
- ASRock X399 Taichi ATX sTR4 Motherboard
- EVGA 850 B3, 80+ Bronze 850W, Fully Modular PSU
- Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3, Premium-Grade CPU Cooler
- MSI Gaming GeForce GT 710
- Fractal Design Define C case
- Corsair LPX 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz C16 DDR4 DRAM Memory Kit
- GELID GC-Extreme thermal paste
- Random 500GB SSD from my parts bin

It's been at least 15 years since I attempted to pick all of the parts and build my own PC, but after hearing your talk I think I may give it another try.
Thank you for the inspiration.

re: productive walk
Glad to hear it!
It was not nearly as challenging as I had expected given the tools on pcpartpicker. The hardest part was actually finding things that could ship! I had to swap parts on the build here and there via that site before I finally got everything together but it wasn't awful.
