Im looking at upgrading my old desktop. My budget would be 700 usd approx.
New build spec is an amd ryzen processor
480gb ssd boot and 3x 4tb drives for storage
Already have a case and psu.
Then I found an ad online where a local guy is selling a Lenovo thinkstation D30
Dual xeon processors 12 cores each 24 threads each
512gb boot ssd
3x 2tb data drives
Nvidia gtx1070 graphics card
All for 700usd.
My question is would i get better performace on the older thinkstation pc vs a new build ryzen??
Thinkstation is approx 7-8 yrs old with a clean build of Win10 Pro.
Mainly want it for running vms and some video/photo editing. Not really into gaming.
Any advice would be great
