Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT Intel i7-4770 3.40GHz 8GB DDR3 No HDD 125.00 Ebay
Upgradeable to 32gb Ram I won't need another computer ever again.
1060 GPU later on I should be golden.

I cheated in my workshop, I had a C-Media Audio Adapter (Unitek Y-247A) type: USB sound adaptor [only a cheap one but works fine]
My 400g2 cost £80 inc next day delivery, but it was virus infested..yes it was preinstalled with Windows 10 :D

I have just come to terms that Linux just doesn't coexist with this HP computer. I did how ever find a how to debloat windows video and it literally shuts like 300 things down before the main script goes in .

Depends on the use case. An i5 is good for low-mid level games/graphics. The i7 is good for mid-high level games/graphics. Or you could go for the i9 which is slightly overkill for most users.

I am going to have to re-read this Thread, it looks extraordinarily interesting :)

I have had Linux on an HP no problems, but have not so far found a better home for Linux than a Dell.
