    Considering building a new PC/Help please


    Hi. My old desktop just got the news that it does not meet the requirements of Windows 11. So I,m thinking of building a new computer. Haven't built one in over 8 years. Think I'm a little rusty.
    Would like either an I3 or I5, 8-16Gb memory, 250Gb SSd. The video card I'm lost on. I have a Dell 24" monitor, 1920 X 1200 (2407WFP) resolution.
    I pay bills on-line. Check News, check grocery store ads. Print recipes my wife is looking for, and watch YouTube. I think thats the problem. YouTube has 4K, 8K, and even 12K resolution videos. I'm lost as to what kind of video card to get.
    And I would prefer Intel CPU's. Don't want a compatibility issue somewhere down the line.

    Thank for any help.

    Building a new one at the budget you mentioned seems difficult. But these old ones are very reliable.

    I you want to build a new one the Board, CPU and Ram alone will cost more than that.

    Thank you. Will the graphic cards work on the 24" monitor?

    Don't forget, @milford want's something that is Windows 11 compatible. Those CPUs listed are not Windows 11 compatible.
