Been looking to buy a pc for some time now. I almost pulled the trigger on this model below. Should I buy the PC below as a starter pc or build one for the same price?

CyberPowerPC - Gamer Ultra Desktop - AMD FX Series - 8GB Memory - AMD Radeon RX 460 - 1TB Hard Drive - Black http://www.bestbuy.com/site/cyberpowerpc-gamer-ultra-de...

I want to find a build for around the same price. I would also like it have the light scheme like the CyberPowerPC has. I'm looking to spend $500 ($550 after tax/shipping) and would upgrade parts in the future when needed. Thanks to all that contribute.:wahoo:

Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: 1-2 weeks

Budget Range: $550 After Shipping/Taxes

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (Overwatch), Video Editing (Adobe Premiere Pro) , WIX Website Builder, Heavy Internet Browsing, Microsoft Office

Are you buying a monitor: At the moment, I will be using my 60" 4k Vizio TV but will buy a smaller monitor at a later time.

Parts to Upgrade: Awesome Looking Builld

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com or website with best price/warranty

Location: City, State/Region, Country - South Texas, USA

Additional Comments: Performance First but wouldn't mind lookin at a sick build

I wanted to put you into Ryzen, but that would have been just over 600 including OS.

FX series is essentially a "Clearance". Friends don't let friends buy a FX unless they are incredibly desperate.

LOL Thanks for not letting me buy FX then. Is Ryzen one of the new CPUs released? Upside of having one, other than having a cool named CPU.

Ryzen replaced AMD's entire line. They are intended to contend with Intel's Consumer and workstation market. The benefit is that they are giving you comparable (sometimes a little less) performance per core, but the cost is less for the AMD products and AMD is giving you more cores.

The G4560 is no slouch in gaming; its single core performance is great for the price. Once you get into other applications, like video encoding or broadcasting, you need more cores.

Download Windows onto the flash drive and use the key that you buy. if you don't know what this means then do a little research about your options for getting windows. also i'm not 100% sure about that HDD, another guy recommended this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Jjp323/toshiba-internal-hard-drive-hdwd110xzsta but i'd do the research yourself on which 1TB HDD is best.
