I am thinking its time to upgrade my rig. Currently running a HP Elite 8200. It has the quad core i5-2400 @3.10ghz, using a GT 1030 GPU (2gb) and running 32 gb of ddr3 @665.1Mhz. Probably only using 8-16 of it.
Thinking about a Ryzen 5 w/ a Nvidia GTX 960 . I'm open to suggestions.
Currently using Filmora 9 for YouTube videos. Would like to keep the build cost under $1000. Thanks

This is more on the upper tier of your price range. You can drop the CPU down to a Ryzen 3600 or the GPU down to a GTX 1650 Super or RX 5500XT

I gave you a very fast SSD for editing files on, as well as a good GPU to help with rendering/previewing .

I didnt include an OS incase you already have a copy. If not you can always run Windows without a license or buy a cheap License Key online.
