bill1024 Reuse your windows10You can deactivate the OS from the motherboard and reuse it.Here is how.Uninstall Windows 10 Product KeyWith the computer connected to the internet Press Windows key + X then click Command Prompt (Admin).At the command prompt, enter the following command: slmgr.vbs /upk.Then hit enter.You will get a notice then that the key was uninstalled. Easiest way to reinstall. While doing a fresh install of windows, at the beginning where it asks for a key,click "do not have a key" Instal windows and updates. When done go to activate and install the key and activate. It has worked every time I have done it and I have done it many times never having to call MS
DeadMedicFor price/ performance I'd consider a Ryzen 2000 series with a B450 board. There's a lot of deals right now. The B450 can upgrade to Ryzen 3000 later if you want. I just picked up a Ryzen 2700 with am Asus B450 for $220 the other day.
joeymir+1 on Ryzen 2000 series & B450 Motherboard. Just the other day the 2600 was on sale on newegg for just $120! Absolutely crazy for what a great performing CPU it is. Also the 2700x I've seen for just $200 which is a monster of a CPU for that price. Personally with how cheap one could build a Ryzen 5/7 setup, I wouldn't risk going the used route.EDIThttps://www.newegg.com/asus-tuf-b450-plus-gaming/p/N82E16813119142?Item=N82E16813119142 Motherboard $111https://www.newegg.com/amd-ryzen-5-2600/p/N82E16819113496?Description=ryzen%202600&cm_re=ryzen_2600-_-19-113-496-_-Product CPU $135https://www.newegg.com/ballistix-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820164026?Item=N82E16820164026 Ram $66So entire core system for under $320? hard to beat that, even used! Keep in mind there is always promo codes in Newegg email blasts, which could save you even more money.
