    I'm looking to replace my current PC with a two-monitor setup for a new tower with a three-monitor setup. I'm not an expert in this area and would love some feedback on which would be best for my needs.

    I'm self-employed and the bulk of my work is done in Outlook, Excel and several web-based applications. I don't do any video editing and do minimal photo editing, where I used Pixlr. If any additional info may be needed to assess which tower would be best, please feel free to ask.

    With that said, here are my current options. If a better alternative around the same price is available, I'm definitely interested. So...what do you think is best and why?

    Lenovo Ideacentre 720-18ASU
    $850.00 at Best Buy
    3 GHz AMD Ryzen 7
    4GB AMD Radeon RX 560
    1TB HDD
    16 GB RAM
    1 HDMI
    1 VGA
    1 DVI
    1 DP
    6 USB Ports

    Dell XPS 8920-7922BLK-PUS (This looks like I could only do two monitors??)
    $899.00 at Costco
    3.6 GHz (8M cache, up to 4.2 Ghz) 7th Generation Intel i7-7700
    8GB AMD Radeon RX 480
    1TB HDD + 256GB SSD
    24 GB RAM
    1 HDMI
    1 DP
    8 USB Ports

    Dell XPS 8930-7401BLK-PUS
    $899.00 at Costco (Reg. $999. $100 off until 2/4/18)
    3.2 GHz (12M cache, up to 4.6 Ghz) 8th Generation Intel i7-8700
    4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphics
    2TB HDD
    16 GB RAM
    1 HDMI
    1 DP
    I thought this had 1 VGA port in the store?
    6 USB Ports

    Anyone? I just remembered I also have music or video streaming at all times while I work.

    I don't plan on doing any gaming but want a work PC that will last 5+ years.

    The third choice looks good to me.

    You may want to look for a prebuilt with an option to replace the system drive with a high capacity SSD if possible.

    Well I would take #2 because of the SSD and GPU. But 2 and 3 are from Costco which mean you get a 2 year factory warranty and if you pay with a Visa you can get 2 more years.

    #2 has the most RAM an SSD and the best video card of the bunch (despite being from the previous generation).

    Maybe a good question would be what are the specs of your current pc?
