    I’m thinking about upgrading my current desktop, but I’m wondering where I should cut my costs. Is it more important to utilize a CPU or GPU when hacking? Is there advantages of using either (If comparing a modern CPU vs GPU)? Is it fine to just use a PC with a modern CPU (I7/Ryzen 7, etc) and no GPU or should I use something like a i5/Ryzen 5 and a GTX 1050 or something?

    I’m on a tight budget so I can’t just buy a top of the line gaming PC but I can either build around what is important or find a pre-built laptop/desktop with similar specs.

    Can anyone help me understand the key features of both?
