    @BartMaster1234 Tyler thanks that website looks like a great resource - the build you sent me didn't seem to out of my budget but I wouldn't mind any suggestions on the list I put together - I don't know enough about competing products in each category.

    CPU: $340

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086MG1C7C?th=1&psc=1

    CPU Cooler $42

    https://www.amazon.com/ARCTIC-Freez...MQ9MQ5M/dp/B07MC8BC7C/ref=dp_ob_title_ce?th=1

    Black and Red Model

    Motherboard $170

    https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Gaming-M...aming+plus+atx+lga+1200&qid=1599546866&sr=8-1

    Memory $53

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QRSPFG7?th=1&psc=1

    Storage $53

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XJ2P1LK?th=1&psc=1
    or if it’s not stocked by the time I need parts
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H21182F/ref=twister_B07H23GX5M?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

    Video Card (Bid)

    Case $61

    https://wikibuy.com/p/corsair-carbi...6ZBF?run=8b700677-4c3f-459d-a752-17f8f61fc004

    Windows 10 Home $140

    Anyone that builds PC's is welcome to point out anything I might have missed or am not considering.

    And it looks like "Virtual Desktops" on Windows will allow four finger swipes toggling across full screen apps like how iOS does it which pretty much lets me walk away from Apple. Thanks again Tyler

    Physically pains me that Microsoft still wants so much for a copy of their operating system (I swear 10 Home edition was $99 a coupe months ago) I've yet to pay for a Windows 10 license. Generally get by calling MS support and telling the Indian service rep that I'm considering going to Linux or something. If I'm running a genuine copy of 7 they'll usually give in and hand out a free key. Plus I acquire keys at work sometimes so I've been lucky.

    What usage requires a 1700?

    I'd opt for a Ryzen, especially for gaming.

    This coming from a long time Intel user (E8400 -> 4670K -> 6770K)

    Getting into a computer build for the first time probably is like getting into building anything for the first time - only had 3 prebuilt computers in the past 10 years so I don't have a lot of "spare parts" in a "bin" computerwise. Eventually there might be an (albeit) smaller parts bin for my computer habit lol.

    Looks good, you plugged it into PcPartsPicker and it told you compatibility is ok right?

    My one recommendation is invest in a better power supply. That's a good one, but if you want it to be tidy get a semi modular or fully modular supply so you can remove extraneous power cables.

    I'd be wary of used GPU's - I just had one go bad and it had no warranty left because it was bought used. My friend was out $250 on it.

    CPU cooler really isn't a huge deal, but I like Noctua's offerings. You have one of their fans, and their CPU coolers are very high quality. https://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NH-U1...pu+cooler&qid=1599548680&s=electronics&sr=1-4

    What's the improvement in the Ryzen over the one in the list? Also what's the price - can you link to Amazon please? I copied the list that Tyler had sent me (possibly randomly) based on a video editing build:

    https://pcpartpicker.com/b/QBTCmG

    I know enough about the basic functions (or think I do) of parts, that's where my knowledge stops.

    The reason I'm building a computer is for work where I host a classroom through Zoom while keeping about 6 browsing windows (including one for TW :p) open and am making materials for lessons in Powerpoint simultaneously and my poor 2013 Macbook lappy isn't taking it too well. That said I've done video editing in the past and with a machine that won't slow me down, the likelihood of making films for my school once in awhile definitely is there.

    In the near future the new area to look for work might be digital materials to enhance face to face classrooms (not everyone learns well with plain textbooks so I'd like to develop what I've been doing on PowerPoint and see if I can take a night / online learning programming course).

    I just copied all the things from the parts list you linked me. New knowledge about the compatibility checker.

    Suggest a power supply?

    Can you link a GPU which isn't over $3-500?

    So what's the difference between these and what I saw on MS's site?

    Thanks y'all.

    Not up to date on cards, maybe @what road or @Kwikvette can chime in. But here are some good ones:

    https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce...ild=1&keywords=gtx+1060&qid=1599549951&sr=8-3

    https://www.amazon.com/XFX-Radeon-1...ild=1&keywords=gtx+1060&qid=1599549951&sr=8-2

    As for operating system, it's exactly the same except the ones I linked you are meant for manufacturers or wholesalers. They get the software for pennies on the dollar and sell it to you for cheap.

    This PSU is what I just got for my friend: https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Maste...jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

    @Dalandser My best advice is to use all those build threads on that website as a template, baseline, or simply just inspiration. The best way to learn about PC Building is to do research on each and every part, see what's in your price range, pros-n-cons of each thing, and pick what you want.
