Anyway, to finally answer your question and get you some headway to your new setup, anything like this will probably be fine for Catan, 3D work, and YouTube, though it pains me to go the prebuilt route.

While it's been fun chatting, it appears you entered the wrong thread. LOL. I'll ask elsewhere.

"I want to upgrade my computer"
"Here are some resources to help with selecting new components."
"What I really want is a ready-made computer"
"Ok, here are some prebuilt computers within your budget."
"That's not what I want."

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm pretty sure I was clear about what I wanted form the start. "Please Suggest a Desktop Computer". Your mind just isn't used to operating that way. No reason to take offense.

Admittedly, I have trouble parsing what you're saying to me.  And quite a few of your replies make little sense to me, particularly the CRT post.

However, I really tried to answer the question, as vague as it was.  I don't really know what exactly you're after and it doesn't look like you're prepared to tell me.  So not much I can do on my end.

I've been very clear from the beginning. I have said just what I plan to do with this computer out of the box. I'm going to be clear again, the problem is not on my end.

I will always reccomend AVA direct. You can configure a PC to your needs and budget. There's also some pre-built stuff that is pretty affordable. Also. Best customer service I've ever had.

I got a pretty decent gaming laptop in 2012 that still runs a good amount of games from there. I'll be getting a desktop from them soon for my upgrade

Actually, you haven't been all that clear about what you intend to do with the machine IMO. You indicate in your first post that your current audio hardware has low latency ASIO drivers.  People doing pro audio and video stuff worry about low latency audio. I'm not a gamer but I would suppose the hard core gamer guys might be interested in that as well.

You make no mention of intending to do professional music or audio production nor video with the machine. You mention playing games but nothing graphic intensive which would suggest that you're not what most would consider to be a hard core gamer. Are your games audio intensive? Do you need extremely low latency audio drivers for some reason?

Then you mention that you a lot of 2d graphics work which one would assume means photos and whatnot. Then 2 seconds later you're wondering aloud why anyone needs 500GB of storage. I'm not knocking you so don't take this wrong, but it seems a little out of character for someone who does 'a lot of graphics work' to not understand why people might use lots of storage space.

So yeah, what exactly do you intend to use the machine for? You mention games. What games? List them. All of them. You mention 2d and 3d graphics work. Again, what applications are you going to be using? List them. All of them. What else to do intend to use the machine for? You want to watch netflix and youtube full screen but quite frankly, pretty much anything built in the last few years should be able to do that without breaking a sweat.

Then your reading comprehension is lacking.

Insults. Nice. Make friends much? Whatever.

Here's a machine that should fit your mission.

Best of luck asking for advice in the future. Asshole.

GD .. either accept the red pill (MS et al) or the blue pill (Apple).  Either way you are a slave of the police state.  The idea of a self built PC, or being off the net, just marks you as a terrorist, or worse ... a Sanders supporter ;-)  Linux users are pure Marxists, just ask Bill Hitler Gates.

@gentle_dissident you really haven't been clear You say you don't play graphic intensive games, but that means as much to us as saying to a New Yorker "I'll be there in a little bit. Only a few blocks away" It may seem clear to you, but it's not. A graphic intensive game to you may be not graphic intensive at all to us, meaning you will need significantly less processing power than we would recommend. And similarly, it could be the complete opposite. A game that isn't graphic intensive to you, could be very graphic intensive to us. All you mention in terms of games is Catan, which is a videogame version of a board game. There surely is other games you play. And even a game like that can require some decent set of graphics. Civ 5 is just a turn based game, and you would think it would not need too much graphics... and it doesn't really, but it does need more than you might think.


You need to be more clear, whether you think you do or not. Don't be an asswipe to people that are trying to help you, especially when it's clear that the people you're asking know more about the subject. Hydra and Johan and even myself know quite a bit about computer setups. Johan and Hydra, probably a little bit more than me, even. I'd take their advice. Otherwise, if you're going to insult them for not being able to decipher the very vague information you gave us, you can go to a computer store and have them help you and sell you something.

Thanks for the props PE but this thread has taught me all that I need to know about GD. And that is essentially that from here on out, GD can eat my shit and die for all i care. I am sick and fucking tired of making a genuine effort to help asshats like that only to be insulted by them. People paid me a hansom rate for my computer advice at one point and I never once had anyone even come close to insulting me. Now I offer that same expertise for free on the net to try and help a fellow atheist and this fucking gizz monkey wants to casually throw insults? Fuck him.

Let him go to whatever professional will even agree to have him as a customer and let him pay whatever premium they want to charge. Asshats like that deserve to raped in the wallet. I sincerely hope some professional ends up retiring early off what they end up charging this asshole so he can play some fucking video games.
