Other news
I managed to buy one EVGA RTX 3060 Ti. Hopefully it will provide a performance improvement over my GTX 1660 Ti's. Its totally overpriced but its from one of my usual computer shops so it comes with a warranty. Now all I need is another 3 to replace the rest of my 1660 Ti's. I need to upsize the power supply in the machine that its going to get the 3060 Ti. I already have four 850 watt power supplies ready to install.

I have now updated both the Ryzen 5900X machines to Debian bullseye. I also updated one of the Nvidia GPU machines without issue so far, apart from all the projects assuming its a new host and having to merge it with the previous one. The exception is CPDN which doesn't allow deleting old hosts, nor merging any with a difference (like OS version).

Update 31 Aug 2021
The RTX 3060 Ti arrived. I swapped the old power supply (550 watt) for a new 850 watt one. I swapped the old GPU out for the 3060 Ti. The old GPU will be sold to offset the cost of the new one.
