Stuxnet3101112dIt feels like you're over thinking this tbh.
I can't tell you what you need, buy it just feels like you could be making it harder than it needs to be lol
skprog186612dTheir is no perfect machine. But my advice is if your getting it for graphics. Nvidia all the way. Dont settle for any on board crap. Get youself a decent motherboard. That takes your preference of chip. And give the stick m2 hard drive a try. If your using it for gaming graphics processing. Dont load your os on it. Buy a separate small ssd for that. Keep at it. And dont give up.
@skprog never thought about m.2🤔, thought putting os and main programs/games on ssd and that's it😐
gaming isn't my main concern, i would also be happy if it wasn't all set to ultra super exremely high settings with a quadrillion of fps ... u know what i mean😅
doesn't need to be a gaming rig but i also wouldn't want it to be set on low graphic settings
kinda smth in the middle
ArcaneEye147712dGfx can be upgraded once or twice in the lifetime of a good MB+Processor+RAM combo, so focus on those. For images and VM's you want a lot of RAM, for VM's you want a virtualization capable CPU. I'd go with Intel/Nvidia myself, but I know that adds cost and I know Linux doesn't always play nice with nVidia, so you might wanna stick with amd - look into and make an informed decision at least.
If u game too
You can get i5 8400+1060 3/6gb combo
And if u don't wanna invest in GPU
2400g is ur best bet
For budget builds
I know you are going through too much benchmarks n comparison
You will never gonna get THE best on budget u have to compromise on something look for things that you need don't chase the best build
Always keep in mind to buy a build which support upgrades in future
@cb219 it depends on ur use case
Intel vs amd here
Display refresh rate
Which memory you will use dual channel or single channel
If ur main purpose is gaming or not
Between 2600 vs 1600
I will pick 2600 but i will suggest to invest a bit more to get 2600x
Because there is not a lot of diff in price(better cooler)
Hope this helps you :)
Feel free to ask if u have more ques
@cybergod i tend between 2400G/1600/2600, I don't have the necessity to overclock so I didn't have 2600x in mind.
No main purpose isn't gaming, it's mostly all the other stuff in multitasking (as described), but if I want to game I also don't want potato graphics - neither do I need absolute highest settings 😅
as long as it's more than 8 gigs of RAM I don't really mind about the channels (as long as it doesn't become a huge bottleneck)
... if you don't mind I would list my components so far, as a little review 😅
cb21922511d@Kandelborg first i thought it was a youtube channel and i was like "... ok not many videos there 🤔 "
... well makes sense now after googling, yeah thanks for the advice (and the disclaimer) 😅
only problem: i'm a GUI guy who likes beautiful, clean desktop environments with good interfaces, so no terminal please 😅 , already tried a few times with linux but too many hurdles for me 😕 , always having to go back to terminal for several reasons ... don't know whether i'll ever be able to switch from windows 😌
but still thanks for the suggestion, appreciate it 😊
cb2192259d@cybergod I know some time has already passed, but I still wanted to have some review on these components.
tell me what you think:

- Asus Prime B350-Plus AMD B350 So.AM4 Dual Channel DDR4 ATX Retail
- AMD Ryzen 5 1600 6x 3.20GHz So.AM4 BOX
- 500 Watt be quiet! Pure Power 10 CM Modular 80+ Silver
- 2 x 23.5" (59,69cm) Samsung S24F356FHU schwarz 1920x1080 1xHDMI / 1xVGA

- be quiet! Pure Base 600 dammed with side window Midi Tower ohne Netzteil schwarz
@cb219 i have almost exactly what you have, these specs can get a little power hungry, you may be better off with a 550w power supply.
Go for a 1080 Ti if you can.
The reason I love PCs is that there's a plethora of options you could choose from within your budget and requirements. If you know what you are looking for, you'd save yourself a lot of money. You also have the option of modifying your build every which way.
Try doing that with a MAC.
cb21922523m@bigus-dickus thanks for the suggestion but i think i might stick the specs.
graphics-wise the 1080ti is a but too overkill for my needs (and expensive too😐)
i used the power supply "finder" of be quiet to find the power supply, it actually also recommended a 400W PSU to maximize the usage🤷
