Ideal desktop build?

Hi I am new to qubes but I am going to upgrade my 10 year old computer.

What would be the ideal desktop build that would work, I am finding creating something very hard.

I was thinking AMD Ryzen 7 5700G with Wraith Stealth, Gigabyte B550 Aorus Elite AX Motherboard and 32gb of ddr4 3200 RAM.
This build isn’t only for qubes though, but would like to use and learn more about it.
But its very hard knowing what is “ideal”, I just read about Intel platypus attack, etc…

Hi @Mew1, welcome to the Community! I’m glad you are interested in running Qubes OS. For hints regarding how various hardware works with Qubes, have a look at Hardware Compatibility List. See also community-recommended machines. Currently, only one of them is a desktop. Note that a USB keyboard is not recommended.

Hi Thank you for that, I went through that list, but not sure if the parts I picked will work :frowning:
the CPU and motherboard are the hard parts to pick for me. Once I buy and use them, I can’t return them.
Cant find the whole CPU specs either…
