Ramlaum asked for some advice on getting a new desktop. His 10+ year old desktop finally died ...

Budget is ~ $1200. Maybe a bit higher if its a nice bump.

I looked at the machines from bestbuy and microcenter and so far the best one I found is:


https://www.microcenter.com/product/635448/powerspec-g509-gaming-pc
$1150 - CPU AMD 5600X 3.7 Ghz base clock - 16 GB ram / 2666 speed (really?) - RTX 3060 - 500 GB SSD

Its kind of sad that its only a 500 GB SSD instead of 1 TB but probably ok. I'm hoping the RAM is actually faster and its just listed at the 2666 spec.


The other machines from HP are ok but I don't like the that the front of the case is closed off with only a tiny set of holes in the side to let air in.

I don't want to suggest using a dell because they are notorious for using proprietary components.

Anyone have a better suggestion ?

I would be nice if its a local store ( Chicago area ) to make returns easier.

ps. He picked up an ibuypower gaming PC from bestbuy and had troubles with it out of the box. Driver issues and random shutdowns.
