I know absolutely nothing about computers and never wanted to get one until i seen videos and streams of ready or not. And my buddy was telling me that warzone is better in pc. So I need to get one but I have no idea where to even begin nor what any of the numbers and GeForce and any of that stuff is. I need recommendations here people

That game is huge, you are going to want a larger capacity SSD, so I put a 2tb in this.

Can we lose my virginity with a prebuilt then maybe I’ll ask about building but that’s very expensive route
I have built dozens of systems over the years .. but at this point, I'm not so current tech. wise and don't want to deal with the problems or failures so I'd pay for a prebuilt , (back then I worked directly with highly tech. hardware guys at my company so that could help too) probably others the same ... my time is worth more than I'd save .. appreciate any advice though .. and never know, I may build my own if I don't find a good deal ..

I suspect with 40xx Nvidea on the horizon that prices will come down, I'd be happy with a 3070 or 3080 since music is my main use

Neither is very appealing. The first one has too slow of ram, and the second one would be slower, in gaming, as the 5600g/5700g are more comparable to Ryzen 3000 non APU chips. Neither has enough storage. This one would work, but be prepared for ram and storage upgrades, sooner rather than later.

Ok what is an Apu chip and what if I didn’t go with warzone on the pc seeings how I just got a ps5 in November and I wanted a pc specifically for ready or not for the time being

APU is an AMD processor with on chip graphics. The system, at best buy, I listed above, is about as close you are going to get, to the DIY list I made. Same graphics, comparable CPU. Just less ram and storage. Something that can easily be added later.

You have to decide if you want to use a discrete video card or an APU's. Apu's not have the performance level as a dedicated GPU. 5600x or you choice of what. Money is all it takes is money.
How fast do want to go? How much money do you have to spend. Balance things out..

You can also order the parts and have it built in a local computer shop for a small fee. Or the US online retailers stop being stupid and finally offer that service, it's ridiculous they don't do that already. The big ones over here in Germany offer it for ages.

Service things are quite expensive to scale up nationally here because of the massive distances involved. You either have to be very focused on the computer product (such as companies like Cyberpower) or have a very large brick-and-mortar presence.

Alternate delivers to Spain. That's three countries apart and depending on destination approximately the distance between Dallas, Texas, and New York City. I just confirmed with someone who works there that everything gets delivered from the same place in Germany and that they do sell those comletely freely self-configured systems; only thing they don't sell internationally is big stuff like fridges, due to logistics partners limitations. Also, you got Walmart. Don't see how that wouldn't count. I'm also not talking about companies like CyberPower. We got that here, too, like One.de for example, and they are just as crappy.

There is no excuse here. They don't do it because they don't want to, not because they can't.

Never said that they can't. Just that it's not worth it to them because of the additional complexity. And I clearly said "brick-and-mortar presence" as an exception.

And yes, the difference between Spain and Germany (depending on the cities) is about the same as Dallas to NY. But you're comparing their distance limit to something that would be far closer to a typical difference for companies without a large amount of infrastructure. What would be meaningful would be asking what their average shipping distance is.

The Ryzen 5 5600g is not "comparable" to the Ryzen 5 3600. The 5600g is 100 places higher in rank than the 3600 on passmark and take a look at actual benchmarks
View: https://youtu.be/sJMe_rpVVJE
it outperforms the 3600 at every turn until you get to 1440p gaming, the gap is pretty close there. If you are ONLY gaming and at 1440 or higher, the 3600 makes more sense, but if you do rendering, encoding or 1080p gaming, the 5600g wins hands down. I own both and have tested both in the same system. You can see for yourself though, in the video I linked.

The gap isn't as big as you are making it out to be.
