First time and this list is nowhere near done. Budget around 1750 USD.

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
NZXT Kraken X53
Asus ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB)
Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB
Corsair MP600 Force Series Gen4 500 GB
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 10 GB or whatever card I can get my hands on that will fit
Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital ATX Mid Tower Case
Corsair RM (2019) 750 W 80+ Gold
 
Budget around 1750 USD
Like @FreezerBurn says, assuming your focus is playing recent & upcoming games, you're probably better off buying pre-built—you should get a pretty good machine for your budget with the crucial top-line graphics card.

My guess is the parts shortage could get worse before it gets better—which could easily be mid-2022.

Too small on the SSD for a gaming build, and the 3700X isn't a good gaming cpu ... especially when its going for over $300 atm. Try this.

Turn off the power limits in the bios and you're off to the races.
