Hi Guys,

- I am a recent architecture graduate.
- My company said that they will sponsor me to get a better PC, with the limit up to £710.

Requirements:
- 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 1T HDD, WiFi and Windows 10
- Either i7 or ryzen 7
- Two monitors (not included in the £710)
- GPU is not mentioned.

I did some research and found two set ups. I think GPU is important in design.
Both have 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 1T HDD, WiFi and Windows 10

- Set up 1 - CPU - Intel i5 9400f with GPU - GTX 1660 Super 6GB

- Set up 2 - CPU - Ryzen 7 2600x with GPU - GTX 1650 4GB

I understand that 1660super is much better than 1650, however I'm worried about the cpu as i5 6cores and 6threads, compared to Ryzen is 8cores 16threads.
- Which one would be better for me, providing its for architecture not gaming or do you have even better one in mind, please?
- Since GPU is not mentioned, should I focus on better CPU with integrated GPU?

Thank you in advance.

either setup would be good, we have architects that use machines with both cpu's i think the gpu is more important for CAD, they have Nvidia Quadra work station ones rather than gamer variants

Ah great, I'm not the pc expert. Which Nvidia Quadra I should go for? Would you have any tips of where to look for such a computer, please?
