Hi,

Looking for a PC - that will last me a few years. Primary use case is some amount of data crunching / quantitative processing - In terms of gaming, currently I don't want to buy a high end gfx card, will pick it up later. Will use a very old existing card for now. I want to be able to upgrade the CPU later. Will be getting in 32 GB RAM for now - so pref the board supports 64 GB.

When I do pick up a gfx card, I'll be primarily playing Flight Simulator on Dual or three monitors. So suggest accordingly.

You can go for Intel or AMD, both would cost about the same.
i5 10600 -----------------------------| Ryzen 3600
B460M Aorus Pro/ TUF Gaming Plus | B450M Pro4 / B550M Pro4
2 x 16GB DDR4 2666mhz or higher -| 2 x 16GB DDR4 3600mhz
Silverstone FARA R1 or cabinet of your choice

Go for bronze rated PSU atleast. Go for gold if your budget allows.
Watts depends on what GPU you buy, what do you think you would be buying?

What key difference does the x570 have over the B550s and 450s?
