Not a great deal, not a bad deal. You probably want atleast 16GB of RAM through.

Check newegg.ca
Also consider building it yourself if you could build something cheaper that would be enough for photoshop.

You could save about $100 going with a B450 that has an updated BIOS.

I have a 3600 with a B450 tomahawk. I run 2 virtual machines in the background, while playing youtube in another monitor, and playing a 3d game on my main monitor, and a scheduled backup happening; my CPU usage does not break 30%.

I also have a 1060. My PSU is 400W 80+. You could save a few bucks with a lower power PSU.

By "disk crashed", do you mean the harddrive failed? If so, what about just getting a used SSD and popping it in? The PC is 10 years old, but if it was serving it's purpose, maybe $100 is the way to go?

If not, that listed system you have looks good, but toalan's points in post #8 are good ones.

I would :
- drop the video card ... add one later if needed
+ at least 16GB (if not 32GB) ... trust me
+ upgrade to a better PSU

They will try fixing the corrupt SSD so hope to have the Gateway as a spare. Am sick of this old gateway.

Why are both of you suggesting the 450 MBB rather than the ASUS?

Friends don't let friends buy Gigabyte PSUs

I'd go for an EVGA or Seasonic

It depends on how much you're paying for the X570 board. You're not using any of the features and some people don't like the tiny chipset fans on the X570 boards, so you could stand to save a bit by going with a B450.

However, if they're going to charge you $50 to update the BIOS, it might not be worth it.

I recently built 2 PC's... Went with 3700X / X570 combo for my main build and a 3600 / B450 for the other
