    As someone who has worked 15 years in the computer assembly and sales industry, I can confirm this is the best way to build and sell computers.*

    What's that star for? Because some people won't listen. Some people will demand specific parts, demand a specific price, or have no clue what they actually want. When someone would ask me for a gaming PC, instead of asking how much they want to spend, I would instead ask what resolution and what games. A computer's specifications should start and stop with the task it will be put to.

    Glad to see other companies are taking this ethos to heart. Stay awesome!

    edit: Oh, nice to see them using quality cases. I built my latest PC into that exact Fractal Design case, and I agree that they are as quiet as quiet can be.

      @Roberto Cerrud Yes. thank you. Those are the 2 I have been considering, after a long long search. Nice to get the advice from someone other than myself.

      @Dennzer1 budgetwise amd cpu would be Ryzen 3 3200G, but if you could got for the Ryzen 5 3600

      @Zero Cool 1920 x 1080 pixels vs 3840 x 2160 pixels you just quadrupled the load

      For a Non-Gamer purchasing an AMD Ryzen 3 or Ryzen 5 CPU, should single thread performance take precedence over the overall CPU mark? The goal of the system is to watch Youtube video and Blueray movies in 1080p @ 60 FPS, or hopefully 1440p @ 60FPS. The video card will be a Nvidia GTX 750 Ti.
      What is the cheapest Ryzen processor that will accomplish this goal?

              Well according to patato jet, you can get a laptop for 2k-3k dollars that will render 12 minutes of 8k video in 9 minutes.

                            I think 128gb is a lot more than you need. Instead of that, they should put a better gpu like 2070.

                              Imagine comparing your new CPU to last-gen stuff and saying that it's faster than threadripper because the 1920 x is not as fast...

                                I'm sorry I can't trust a guy with an Apple keyboard, no mousepad, and a lack of cable management, but can afford a 4k camera. C'mon man. Get it together, bud!

                                      Whilst it's a great way for companies to do computers (when the computer has one specific task to do) this is not a great way for consumers to do computers (computer has several things to do). think about the digital artist that has to draw, model, render, preproduction and postproduction. would definitely suck if your computer could only do one of those things well and lagged on everything else (not to mention wanting to game in between). This is the reason for the "market hole" they spoke of. I know, old video but you would have been better off building your own unless you do nothing else but edit video on it.

                                        I will just save the additional consult price to trial n erro to change the part 😁 ,

                                                Intel performs better especially in these software due to AVX-512 acceleration, but "generally" more cores with SMT or hyperthreading is better. Applications that utilizes AVX-512 are not that of now

Meanwhile you can go work on computer 1 for more editing or other tasks.

                                                                                            Many years ago I made a two in one computer that did something similar for an architect. It had one hi-res but not powerful video card and monitor for basic CAD editing, and one Nvidia CUDA GPU (with 1024 GPU cores) which did the rendering. This GPU bas connected to a basic monitor to monitor the progress of the rendering. The mother board was selected that he could add 3 more CUDA GPU's. This thing was FAST!
