So I looked at microcenter and they have a bundle that includes:
Ryzen 5 2600X, Asrock B450 PRO4, Samsung 970 EVO+ 500GB M.2 for 292.97.
Adding a case $50 and power supply $50 and 16GB Ram $60 leads to about 452.97 before video card.
I told him to watch for sales on video cards and he can deal with the built-in graphics till there is a good sale.
I have no idea what it means, but somehow the Androids were involved.
I still have a deadline for the Windows 7, so I am interested in all the Intel and AMD CPUs. I don't have much hope that the Ryzen hexadeca-core will help me compared to the dodeca-core CPU unless there are some other improved attributes of the CPU RAM, chipset, motherboard, etc.
