[mythtv-users] new PC build that's MythTV compatible

Looking for advice on what folks have working in their setup.

I'm replacing my old Core i7 2700K system that uses an Nvidia GT-1030 GFX
card. The reasons are other than Mythtv, but I want Mythtv to work just as
well as it does today.

I know the Core i7 10600K is a respectable 6 Core 12 thread CPU and it has
Intel GFX. I'm not disappointed with what my GT-1030 is giving me, so I can
always put that old card into the new system if the Intel GFX sucks. But
then I'm wasting money on GFX I'm not using.

I've been looking at the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 which is 6/12 core/thread and is
very respected. If I get a 500 series motherboard it would also support the
5000 Zen 3 processors when they come out.  I could use my GT-1030 GFX card
or add a Radeon RX 570 GFX card and still be cheaper than the Intel Core i7

My research says Linux drivers are available for AMD, Nvidia, and Intel so
I'm hoping Mythtv would work fine.  However, my son says to stay with
Radeon if I go Ryzen 5 3600 for gaming software compatibility. (I have no
idea why)

Any opinions on any of this?
