I am having a u nit built to operate SU 2016 pro and to migrate to SU 2019. Wanted to know if the specs listed below will work with both? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

32GB Ram
750 Watt Power supply
DVD/RW + Card Reader
Front USB 3.0
GTX 1660 5 GB Ram
Windows 10 Home

I'd change the 1TB M.2 NVME SSD to a 512GB Samsung 970 Pro SSD (this will be OS drive with apps installed here also), then get a separate 1TB Samsung 860 EVO SSD (for data / storage). Rather get Windows 10 Pro, you can join network domains that way. Consider changing the GTX1660 5GB for a GTX 1070 8GB (or GTX 1080 8GB or better) if you're planning to do any rendering. Make sure the 32GB RAM is in a 2x16GB configuration, this will leave you with the option to buy another 2x16GB (of the same) if you want to upgrade this, will save you the trouble of buying a complete 4x16GB set and try to sell your 4x8GB at a loss.

SketchUp runs on a single core only, thus favors higher clock speeds. Rendering apps will make good use of the more RAM and better graphics card.
