Assuming it's a gaming rig:

  • Faster, lower latency CPU with 6 cores (great option for 1080p gaming and future-proofing)

  • 16GB RAM

  • Or you could drop down to 8GB (sufficient for gaming) and grab the RX 580 gaming card for a small premium on top. Not sure if you fancy having a crack at used GPUs as an RX 580 8GB card is possible for around the $120/$130 mark
