New computer with budget advice needed.


New Member
I want to upgrade to a new computer and want opinions on Hardware. I am more of a software person and do not understand a lot of Hardware specs as far as Motherboards, processors and their speeds etc. It’s been long time since I have upgraded and computer brands and processors have changed over the years so rather then spend the next two months trying to go through the pains taking process of finding reviews for this stuff, I’d rather just ask all of you that know more about it then me. Here’s what I ‘ve got and where I want to go! I currently have an Acer computer running an AMD fx 6100 6 core processor with 8 GB Ram and Windows 10 Pro 64 bit installed. When I run apps like Pinnacle studios 19, my fan is really loud or even when it does a scan with AVG it is loud. I mainly use my coputer for downloading music and movies, watching movies, listening and organizing music and creating and editing videos etc. and browsing the internet using only Firefox.

I have a budget of about $1300 CAD and have found 6 products so far within this which I have provided links below. If you do not want to go to the links, I have provided brief specs above each link.

HP 600 G3 PC (Intel Core i7-7700 / 1 TB HHD / 8 RAM / Intel HD Graphics 630 / Windows 10)

HP EliteDesk 800 G4 PC - Silver (Intel Core i7 8700 / 1TB HDD / 8GB RAM / Intel UHD Graphics 630 / Win 10)

Dell Precision 3000 3620 Workstation - Intel Core i7 (6th Gen) i7-6700 Quad-core (4 Core) 3.40 GHz - 8GB DDR4 SDRAM - 1TB HDD – Windows 10 Pro

CLX SET GAMING AMD Ryzen 3 2200G 3.5GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti 6GB, 8GB Mem, 120 SSD + 1TB HDD – Windows 10 Home

HP Z240 2TF24UT#ABA Tower Desktop Computer, 4.2 GHz Intel Core i7-7700, 1 TB HDD, 8 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM, Windows 10 Pro

And one more Pro media system here.

I am not too crazy on the first two HP models because of their case designs but anyways I just wanted to know what my best bang for my $1300 CAD would be without having a loud fan!
