This is my first post. Not sure this is a good deal. Looks like the Ryzen 7 3700X Processor itself is about $300 as per PCPartPicker.

Please recommend it this is a good one for Office/Productivity use.

So the SSD from the system is NOT NVMe?
It is NVMe, but not sure whether it is x2 or x4

It's most likely the EX920. If so, it's x4. Benchmarks suggest that the drive can perform very well but that system configurations cause much lower performance in the real world. If p0tempkin is right, above, this would be one of those poor configurations, limiting the speed you get out of this drive.

I think the Walmart deal is better if you are doing any gaming at all.

I5-9400F + 1660 TI >>> Rizen 3700X ann RX550.
The I5-9400F will handle pretty much anything you can throw at it minus heavy Video editing...maybe.

You can see here the processor really doesn't matter in games nearly as much as the GPU

The processor will matter for things that aren't games though. The ryzen will perform much better on handbrake.

It's an ok deal if you are into prebuilts. You can probably build one yourself for the same price with higher quality components.
This^^
On paper it's a good deal, but you are getting inferior parts. If you build your own, you could get higher quality parts for roughly the same price. Pretty good deal if you're not up for that though and just need a basic PC that will not be very upgradeable, but semi-future proof.

Sell the 3700x since it's overkill for this type of machine and replace with 1600/1700/2600/2700.

If what another poster said is right, this comment can't be right. 2666MHz RAM should be considered a mismatch with a chip like the 3700x, as the newer AMD chips actually rely on RAM speed for good performance. I didn't believe it at first but look it up, it's true. I recently bought a 3800x and made sure to get RAM that would pair up better - in my case 3200MHz. It would be best to replace the RAM to maximize the performance of this PC.
Well its not. I tried several sticks of ram and while I could make memory benchmarks move, overall system performance didn't change much. Folks seem hung up on ram speed, but unless you're working with a high end board (and this isn't that) you don't see much of a difference. That however will not sway people from throwing a ton of money at it and getting frustrated as a result.

What's the deal? Competition. From cpu's to desktop builds, if you aren't on top of your game and pushing the envelope hard you're going to get left behind. I'm seeing everything from cooling problems to people swinging wildly trying to make their machine overclock or go faster and its simply not there.

I said it many times about this machine. It is what it is. Adding a second stick of the same ram for $31 enables dual channel and that DOES make things go a lot faster. Other than that, overclocks and "faster" ram only seem to matter if your primary application is to run memory benchmarks.

Whoa, CPU Benchmark is 23,857 - seems really fast/a good deal for a $550 desktop.

Yes, this isn't a gaming computer and never was. If someone buys it for more than low to mid range gaming, they bought the wrong computer.

For me, I already had a gaming rig and an older i7 desktop for mainstream use. This replaced the latter with about 2.5x the cpu power, faster ssd, etc.

That other one isn't as good as the gaming rig I have now and doesn't have enough cpu to interest me as a desktop replacement.

I'm interested in this rig for Photoshop and zbrush. Not for gaming. You think this is desktop is meant more for work?

I am not sure why you would say it isn't a gaming computer. Any computer with a decent processor (which both of these have) and a good graphics card (1060 gtx and above) IS a gaming computer .
If you game for a living maybe not but for the rest of the population its just fine for gaming. I never understand why guys come into these threads and say that pre built computers are not "gaming" computers....what does that even mean ? all of the 1500.00 + "gaming" machines are overkill for just about everyone who doesnt game professionally.

It has a 310w power supply and cooling issues. So far anyone who tried a gpu said it ran hot. Its not a gaming computer beyond its existing capabilities.

And you picked the wrong guy to TRY to start an argument with. You have a nice life now.

Carved from a solid block of granite for that purpose. Add another stick of the same ram for $31-32 if you need it (it runs faster due to dual channel memory) or a pair of 16GB sticks of the same ram for <$100 if you need 32GB. Has space to add one or two sata drives if you need more storage. The included gpu is fine for workstation stuff like you plan to use it for and light gaming. IIRC (its been a while) some photoshop stuff does better with an nvidia gpu as it can use Cuda cores so you may want a cheap nvidia card in it instead of the amd card it comes with. Not sure if that's still the case but look into system requirements for your apps for anything favoring an nvidia card. I know zbrush is all cpu and doesn't care much about the gpu.

Yep, you have to delve into the newer Threadrippers or an i9 to do significantly better and stuff like a 3800x isn't considerably faster. Unless you get a high end mobo and spend some serious cash its hard to do better for the $$.

A long time ago I had a Ford Taurus SHO. Looked like a family sedan but it packed a 365HP engine. Pretty embarrassing to a lot of sports car owners to get whomped by a sedan.

This is the 2019 computer version of that.

Dang dude, defensive much? It's OK for other people to have an opinion. It's OK for them to be right, and it's OK for them to be wrong. The same goes for you. Chill
