    BareBones AMD Ryzen 7 3700X PC 8 Core 4.4 GHz Max Boost , 32GB DDR4 RAM

    Ok, I'm seriously considering buying this PC; I've had wonderful experiences with PCs I've ordered thru CPU Solutions, but I'm completely at a loss when trying to determine if the specs of this particular PC are above average, average, or just not worth the price. Could I find the equivalent for cheaper someplace else?? Help, somebody!! My 11 yr. old PC is slowly trying to die so any advice on this is welcome! Thanks!

    32 GB of RAM? That's a beast. Looks like you need to get a separate video card though, and that 250 GB SSD is very small, so you'll need to buy a second drive. You're probably looking at $1500 total at least.

    Amazon has way cheaper ones https://www.amazon.com/s?k=32gb+pc&ref=nb_sb_noss

    Dell is apparently loaded with a ton of bloatware: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5N7aYtkzKJc

    Maybe have a look at the pre-configured list: https://www.cpusolutions.com/store/p...-PC-s-c467.htm

    Lower end, but probably still a lot faster then your 11 year old machine: https://www.cpusolutions.com/store/p...D-467p5583.htm
    I would just get it with 16GB of RAM if you go for that one. And maybe add an additional hard drive.

    Thanks big_M. My current PC was built for me by CPU Solutions and I've loved it every day since receiving it 11 yrs. ago. Never, ever had any issues with it so yeah, I'd like to stick with that company & was glad to see your links. Since my understanding of the tech side of PCs is limited and I'm getting kind of desperate to get a new one I was even looking at Dells, even though I know they've had some bad reviews. Right now I'm waffling between this one:

    and this one.

    I just want a PC that's going to last several years and be capable of handling the games that will be coming out in the near future. Your advice is greatly appreciated!!

    Yes, those are great options. No big difference between them. The first one has less, but faster memory, but 16GB should still be plenty (I don't play many modern games). The second one has also more storage space (500 vs 1000GB), so if you are constantly running out of disk space, that would be something to consider.

    In any case, you can't go wrong with either of the two.

    With the amount of space games take up these days, I'd go for at least 1000GB of storage. At least that's what my current setup has for the main drive and with several games installed it can go easily over 500GB.
