The nice lady at Best buy after asking a few questions, recommended this one.

After taking what she told me I did some more digging and found this one on Amazon. I coupled that with a aftermarket warranty. I have had real good luck with refurbished items in the past.

HP Envy 795 Desktop PC - Intel Core i7-8700 6-Core 16GB 2TB 7200 RPM HDD+256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB GDDR5 (Renewed)

I am basically using my computer for the streaming, and light business stuff Excel,Word, QuickBooks ect. Last computer I bought was a tower only at Costco and it has served me well but this is like a Lamborghini compared to what I am working with now. I use my TV as a monitor and we have a12.9 in iPad for the mobile around the house stuff. I know very little about computers as far as how they function and had never heard the term solid state drive till PC mentioned it yesterday. But my take away from her expanded explanation was that it is a must have, and that I didn't need both partitions to be solid state, just the one that the operating system is stored on. The Amazon one had more ram (epandable to 64), bigger solid state drive and another terabyte of storage. Either one of these is probably over kill for what I am using my computer for but I would rather have more than I need than not having enough. I am not sure if this helps you, as this was a kind of tailored to me and sounds like you are more computer savvy than I am. I pretty much told her I want to click it and it appears, like magic
