Update: Was able to recover my Windows 10 Pro license.
1. Budget & Location
Under 500 USD. USA. Probably Amazon or NewEgg. Not both unless I really need to. Amazon is probably preferred.
My goal is replacing my replacing A10-5745-based Laptop. I'd like to be able to play Devil May Cry 5.
I have one 1080p@60Hz monitor and I might also use my 800x600@120Hz projector a few times a month.
I have plenty of peripherals. I have my old Windows 10 Pro license.
5. Why are you upgrading?
I don't feel like replacing capacitors.
AMD Only for the CPU.
AMD preferred for the GPU.
"APU" is acceptable.
I have a case.
I have an SSD with my Laptop's Windows install on it.
I have a few extra HDDs.
Try to scale the RAM for eventual max capacity(i.e. If the max capacity is 32GB and there are 4 slots, suggest 1 or 2 8GB sticks).
I am willing to wait until Black Friday, if that matters.
I'm currently looking at buying one of these:
AMD Ryzen 5 2400G
8 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB)
AMD Radeon Vega 11 Graphics
2 TB 7200 rpm SATA
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
