Optiplex 790 i3 2120 @3.3 ghz

I have $100 and this seems to be a great deal for $50. I want to use things like photoshop and after effects. Will this run these things? Is 2120 any good?

2120 is horribly weak for these things, but if your budget is $50 I wouldn't exactly go straight to Pcpartpicker. If you could, I recommend getting that PC and getting an i5 or an i7 from that generation to help out the process.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

How much would that new processor cost? What is decent for these?

You can get an i5 2400 for like $35 on eBay, and an i7 2600 for something around $80. I highly recommend the i7, and then save up for a cheap graphics card like a gtx 750 for $50 or so

So a 2600 would be that much better? The four numbers are the power correct? Like how strong it is?

a bit, the first number represents the generation. for example 6=skylake 7=kabylake

the rest of the numbers indicate it kinda. 1 to 3 is an i3 (dual core hypertreading for 2nd gen) 4 to 6 is an i5 (4 cores no hypertreading) and 7+ is an i7 (4 cores with hypertreading)

With the exception of the earlier i7s, like the 2600. But yeah, generally that's true, and power consumption is largely not related to generation.

There are new processors.  Just used ones.

 

i3-2120  is only good for esports titles. You need at least an i5 or i7 for your usage.  An SSD upgrade can also help. :)

CPU: Sempron 2500+ / P4 2.8E / P4 2.6C / A64 x2 4000+ / E6420 / E8500 / i5-3470 / i7-3770
GPU: TNT2 M64 / Radeon 9000 / MX 440-SE / 7300GT / Radeon 4670 / GTS 250 / Radeon 7950 / 660 Ti
