Buying a HP Z420


I was planning to buy a hp z420 from a local shop near me. The guy there offers a HP Z420 with E5-1650 v2 3.5 ghz processor

8GB ram(2x4 GB DDR3 1866mhz)


Now there are three Graphics Card he offers to choose from

1 AMD RX 470 4GB DDR5 256 bit

2 AMD RX 560 4GB DDR5 128 bit

3 Zotac GTX 650 2GB 128 bit

All this for 380 usd

Is it a good build? Should i buy it or if anyone can suggest upgrades. And are these cards worth giving a try . I was ps4 gamer low on budget wanna try pc gaming

Thanks :)

  • Jalal Afzal Jr. what games do you plan to play?

    • Jbigticket23 pubG far cry fortnite the recent ones also i wanna use this pc for adobe premiere video editing. Planning to get 16gb ram and maybe n ssd. Will this pc do?

    • Jalal Afzal Jr. I'd go with the GTX 650 to start.  Then upgrade that GPU and memory as you have budget.  You'll have to tweak the settings to get decent FPS.

    • Jbigticket23 thanks jb. Here's a slight change of plan. I am increasing my budget going for e-1650 v2 with 256gb ssd, 1tb WD Red, 16Gb ddr 3 ram

      And now the big question i m confused between Nvidia GTX 1050 TI 4GB and AMD RX 570 8GB. Which to use?

      And i have heard some older server processors bottleneck latest GPUs how accurate is this statement. And how far this above mentioned pc will go.

    • Jalal Afzal Jr. There will be some bottle-necking depending on the gpu that you plan to install.  Typically there will be little to no bottle-necking with the lower end cards like the ones you are choosing from.  The GTX 1050 Ti and RX 570 are very similar in performance.
