    CPU power is kinda moot if you have a moderately fast GPU. Any Intel IGP is more than capable of driving a modern composited desktop, and even a Llano APU might be grossly overspecced for such task.
    The rule of thumb which is known for ages says that you never should save money on RAM

      I can't agree with you. I use Fedora 32 with GNOME 3.36.3 on ancient AMD E-350 system, which came from 2011 (and even on release time it wasn't the fastest one on the market). It works better than I thought. Moreover I use another same hardware with CentOS 7 with GNOME as well. Both systems allows me to work efficiently and slowdowns are rare.
