Ryzen 1300x, ASRock A320M mobo, 8gb ram, 600 Watt thermaltake PSU, GTX 960 2gb (I could get an rx 580 8gb instead), Corsair Carbide 275R Case, 256 Gb Crucial SSD

I'm wondering what this can run. Can it run newer games at max? Ive been told yes. How friendly would this be to upgrading random components?

It's an okay list. If you're planning to buy all of these, I would suggest something else, however, if this a pre-owned PC that you're considering buying, it's okay. The 960 2GB absolutely could not run games at max settings. But, the 580 should be able to at 1080p so if you have the option, absolutely get that instead.

Its a prebuilt for 550$. Bit more for the 580. Im accustomed to max play with a 1050ti on my gaming laptop. Think this setup will be better? The laptop is the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 gaming. Thanks for the feedback m8. I appreciate it. No idea what im doing tbh.

Well, like I said, it's okay but for just a bit more money you could do better if you build it yourself. Which, it isn't very difficult to do. A few YouTube tutorials will do the trick.

Damn look at you go. Is this build good? Kind of no reason to buy from this guy huh. Idk feels bad that i told him i would you know?

Well, if he wants $550 with the 960 2GB, that isn't a very good deal. In fact, he's asking full retail for it or more. So, I would personally feel a lot better spending just a few more bucks and getting all brand new parts and building it myself. For what you're looking at, I wouldn't spend any more than $400 for it assuming it was built properly and everything is in great condition.

The build above isn't a whole lot better in terms of performance but it just comes down to the fact that it's all brand new (including an 8GB RX580) for not much more money.

Say my budget is 800. Could you design a much better build? This is one of his other options.

This one would run me 900$. Ryzen 5 2400G, gigabyte B450 Aorus M, 8gb gskill aegis, 750W thermaltake fully modular, 256gb hdd, 240 gb ssd, rx580 8gb ddr5, 2 rgb masterfans front, 3 argb fans in top and 1 argb fan in the back.
