Hi CX,

Sorry I missed this earlier.

RAM: go with 1x8GB ram. This will preserve the other slot for future growth. Our office uses 8GB ram standard with heavy users getting upgraded to 16GB. A heavy user is usually folks that have several large spreadsheets up at once or engineers doing 3D modeling.

Edit: If you want to go with 16GB, that’s not a bad plan. While you probably won’t need the 16GB ram now, it will be useful as your new fast machine becomes loaded down with Windows 10 updates over time.

As Dan said, SATA Class 20 is good option. Class 20 is rated consumer grade speeds but is still much faster than the old spinning drive.

Edit: I checked the other options and was impressed with the NVIDIA chipset and graphic cards.

Good luck!!!
