Question Are either of these good? Critique please?


Jan 22, 2010
First, a little explanation - my current system is 7 years old, has a couple of older parts and a couple of newer parts but in general, need a new computer as it's showing it's age.

My current specs: (this is updated to include my new monitor)

AMD Build :
Intel Build:

Some people are not able to see one link correctly when I showed some friends, but it was different for each person. Hopefully they both work.

Approximate Purchase Date: Probably around Christmas
Budget Range: around 1500 USD
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (not FPS mostly Simulation games) watching Twitch.
Are you buying a monitor: No, already have.
Do you need to buy OS: No, I will move my Win 10 Pro to the new system. It is Retail version.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference - but would like to get all parts at once place and maybe have them build it for me too.
Location: Orlando, FL
Parts Preferences: No preference
Overclocking: No/Maybe?
SLI or Crossfire: No
Your Monitor Resolution:1080p
Additional Comments:
I don't need anything fancy like LED lights and stuff.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Having issues running Factorio since I got my new monitor hooked up,

Note: I am legally blind which is why I'm hoping to have them build it for me, however, I can also try to see if I can get someone to do it for me.

Thank you for your time in helping me.


Intel is due to release their locked cpu's and B760 boards January 3rd. I would look at the i5 13400 / 13400F ($225 if I had to guess). You can expect a decent B760 board for less than $200.
