Will getting a faster machine speed up my workflow on Dev Desktop?

I want to buy a new PC, thinking about Ryzen 1600 or so with about 16 Gigs of RAM. Might also get an i5 8400

Any experience with you guys about the speed of Dev Desktop after hardware upgrade?

Does it help for this application?

Thanks
Bruno

There is always some benefit to getting a faster machine, and I think your specs are pretty good. The graphics card will have almost no benefit - the memory you add will be the biggest help along with the CPU. If you're building a desktop computer then go for way more RAM than 16GB - 128GB or 256GB would be better. 16GB would just be too slow for anything.
