Am looking to buy a gaming PC or maybe try building one on my own... Am not really looking to play new triple AAA titles that require high end graphics cards... Most games I wanna play require better than a intergrated graphics which my PC just has a ATI 4200...

I saw this HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0034 Ryzen 7 2700, Radeon RX 580, 16GB DDR 4RAM, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD for $700. But I don't know much about the Ryzen Processor, am just used to the Intel ones or how good Radeon RX graphics cards are over the Geforce GT cards...

Here are some of the specs needed to play some of the games I like buy but other games could require more...

Graphics: Radeon 8500 / Geforce 3
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 660/750, AMD Radeon HD 6970/7850

It's fine. It'll do what you want. $700 is a good price.

That's a solid price for a pre-built. Sounds like the RX 580 will meet your needs, and that CPU will be good for 4-6 years probably. In that time you'll be able to add a new GPU or two if you see the need.

Solid PC for the price. 580 should be fine for what you're doing now. You can always upgrade down the road.

I also meant to add that Xbox One has this new app Wireless Display to where you can stream your PC games to your Xbox... I think the HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0034 should have no problem doing that?

Streaming will depend on your internet connection. The only benefit is getting it onto your tv. Otherwise it’s kind of a waste. I’d just book my PC to my tv all the time

No. Don't tell him that. Chances are he can NOT upgrade an HP Pavilion. He's not buying a standard size generic case. I guarantee that Pavilion is a weird, small case with a proprietary motherboard and some super slim power supply. Upgrading will be a pain unless he's some super modder.

It’s not super slim and it has a PSU that can handle a power-hungry 580. The motherboard won’t precent a GPU upgrade, either.

Is the rx580 4gig or 8gig? If it's 8gig than that's a good deal for $700
