Here are 2 that are in stock at best buy

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/ibuypower-tracemr-gaming-desktop-amd-ryzen-5-5500-8gb-ddr4-memory-nvidia-rtx-3050-480gb-ssd/6510801.p?skuId=6510801
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/skytech-gaming-archangel-3-0-gaming-pc-r5-3600-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1660-500g-ssd-8g-memory/6471873.p?skuId=6471873

Both are rated better then my computer for both video card and video card specs. RAM is 8gb but those are super easy to upgrade on your own. Those have AMD chips but they are rated better going by Userbenchmark.

My pc has an intel i7-3820 rated at 3.6 ghz and a geforce gtx1060 3gb. I can run AH perfectly fine. I dont have every single shiny thing enabled as a lot of the eye candy doesnt appeal to me, and the game runs for me at 59fps in the main arena. I have no desire to use VR for anything so this computer meets my needs to play the game. I built this myself so parts wise it was cheaper to build it rather then buying a pre built one. I got lucky on this one, someone upgraded their computer and didnt want this one anymore. I got the case, motherboard,  32gb ram, and cpu for free since they was going to toss it in the garbage since they got a new gaming pc and "this one wasnt good enough for them" I just moved my video card to it and bought a SSD and reinstalled windows 7 on it. Couldnt pass it up.
Could we convince you to try vr if it was at no cost to try? IT IS RAD in AH

All Iím wanting to do is play this game and download and save pictures that I take. I wonít use it for anything else.

I run Aces High in 1080p.

For that, I get 60 fps on a $500 computer system as follows:

Oh you say that now! Once you see the world in VR where you're sitting in the cockpit, not just looking at it, that'll change.

Costco. Use your Costco cc to pay for it and they will extend your warranty by two years. I went with a Lenovo Legion gaming PC. Runs great!
