Get a good MoBo from Gigabyte or MSI.
Get a Ryzen Chip. It is better at multi-tasking than its expensively priced Intel counterparts.
If you are not an intense video gamer or a video creator then AMD Graphics would provide more value to money than NVIDIA ones.
My answer is vague because the prices of components change all the time. And due to the pandemic, a high amount of uncertainty exists.
So I just suggested the brands that you should opt for.
I prefer laptops to desktops.Laptop configuration is based on what purpose we are going to use it. I am going to buy laptop at reasonable price for my office work like surfing the internet,using ms office,paint software and much more
The title of the thread is, "Looking to build a new PC". Do you build your laptops? And when building a deskotp we do choose the components based on what purpose for which we intend to use it. And with desktops there are a lot more choices for components such that you generally wind up with something more powerful, less noisy and that runs cooler than you would with the equivalent laptop.
And welcome to the forum.
I forgot to comment on the RAM.
Yeah I went back through and swapped them, and the manual says if using two, put them in 1&3 or 2&4, so they should be fine as well. I didn’t see any standoffs, I only seen 8 screw ports.
