    $1,500 budget for new desktop PC and monitor

    Not really into gaming but RDR2 looks like fun.

    Would prefer to buy a desktop PC rather than build.

    Looking for something I can get years of use out of. Currently using 11 year old XP PC I built. One of the fans is now making noise and I would be stupid to spend any money on it.

    Thanks for your help.

    This would fit your requirements. 1080ti/i5-8600k, 3tb hdd, 1tb ssd, 16gb ram but you'd have to build it.

    https://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Gaming-RDY-VIBG202

    i7-9700k, 2070 gpu, 16gb ram, 240ssd, 1tb hdd, liquid cooler, w10 included and battlefield 5.

    Pre-built, not 100% sure how ibuypower is, comes with windows 10 and a game but you're obviously losing some performance downgrading from a 1080ti to a 2070. Substantially less storage but if you arent much a gamer thats probably not an issue.

    If you can wait till April for Ryzen 3XXX series chips to come out, I'd say that's the best option. RDR2 for pc hasn't even been announced/date given yet, so you have plenty of time.

    Ryzen 5 3600x or Ryzen 7 3700x will match Intel's current highest end chips for nearly half the cost.

    More money to spend on a GPU. You could probably fit a 2080/2080ti into your budget with a solid 1440p/144hz monitor at that point.

    Honestly you could probably get an amazing gaming laptop for $1500. Less ability to makes changes to it, but it's awesome having a laptop that you can take/put anywhere.
