  1. I thought they may like CUDA for video editing, but I'm not sure if and CAD programs utilize CUDA acceleration. Still waiting for an answer on the CAD program, sorry.
  2. My father uses Autodesk, which used to require "pro" cards, but I don't modern versions do. I'll try to find out the software.
  3. Hello I've had plenty of experience with gaming PCs, but a friend has asked me for help with a CAD and video editing desktop. This isn't exactly in my skillset, so my first thought was the forum! Below is what I've pieced together so far. My friend would like to keep the budget below $850 USD but he's said up to $1,000 is possible if necessary—yes, I know that complicates it. They would like it to be a regular size (in relation to a Define Meshify C). Mouse, board and monitor are needed. The parts below can be bought at my local Micro Center (Dallas store), though that is not essential. Again, I'm not well versed in CAD requirements, and I don't know which specific program they use. I would have added a graphics card and such, but I don't know which are proper. If you have any questions, I'll be happy to relay them. If this post does not meet posting requirements, I can make changes.

  4. Bump - problem still persists Again: fresh drivers (post-DDU uninstall), fresh Windows on a freshly formatted SSD. Any idea how I could diagnose the issue?
  5. Will do. I have used DDU in the past, and I'll give it another try.
  6. While playing games, my graphics card drivers will randomly crash. The game will still be running, but the window will be invisible, and I have to kill the program with Task Manager. There used to be an error notification that showed up when it happened, but now there is no such notification. The notification was: "Display driver stopped responding, and has recovered." No error codes or anything, no BSODs. Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit (Newest updates, fresh copy) MSI Z97S SLI Krait (Most recent BIOS from MSI's site) Intel i7-4790k (Stock speeds) Kingston HyperX FURY 2x8GB 1866Mhz Sapphire R9 FURY Nitro Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD (Boot) Toshiba 7200RPM 2TB HDD (Storage) EVGA 650W G2 This issue has been happening for years, and since the cause could be so broad I've never been able to find a solution by Googling. So, I've finally come here to ask. I have reinstalled Windows multiple times, most recently yesterday, and the problem still persists. When I reinstall, I fully format the boot disk. It really messes up my CS:GO games, and it sucks to lose whatever BF1 server I was on. Doesn't happen on every game, I can't recall it happening on Minecraft. Thanks for reading/helping please ask if you need more details.
  7. Flight calendars don't go all the way to July 2020, so this is based on June 2020. It should be around $450 round trip if you fly economy and book your flight months in advance. Tickets will get more expensive as the date draws nearer. Flying nonstop might be more expensive than a flight with a connection. Flying out of DWF will be cheaper than flying out of DAL (Love Field), since you won't need a connection at an international airport.
  8. I put the salt in the coffee grounds when I'm using my pour-over coffee maker. Really only needs a pinch. It makes the coffee less bitter and less acidic tasting without adding creamer. If you're adding cream and sugar then there's no need for the salt probably.
  9. black. maybe a tiny pinch of salt
  10. bruh what kinda sandals you wearin on your feet that dont grip em
  11. So much Texas on that 5G launch I'm excited. No 5G phones yet though.
  12. why EDIT - After a quick Google, the shirts were only available online, and are not available anymore. You might just order one from American eBay from a seller that will ship internationally.
  13. But as far as crossplay goes, MS is winning, because they control both Windows and Xbox. There's definitely more than 78 million PC gamers, and being able to crossplay with their 35 million Xbox friends will be beneficial to both parties. Sony locking themselves out is asking for trouble. It won't affect them this generation since, as you said, they already have the market share and they can't lose now. But when the new console platforms launch, market share could start swinging to Microsoft, as long as they don't launch a worse console for more money (Xbox One.) It swung from Xbox 360 to PS4, it can swing back.
  14. All of the "lite" apps are releasing because Google released a bare-bones version of Android Oreo for budget phones in developing markets. https://www.android.com/versions/oreo-8-0/go-edition/ Android Go released with "Go" versions of most Google apps. To go along with those lightweight Google apps, lots of app developers are launching lighter versions of their social media platforms. Facebook doesn't say that Instagram Lite is for Android Go, but I'm sure that's where most people will download it.
  15. absolutely true statement Even in Texas WRXs are beat up by their owners. Even still, used ones are expensive, with head gasket problems and oil leaks! I'd be really careful when looking at used WRXs. Super fun and cool cars, but the second they leave the lot they're typically on the road to the tuning shop. EDIT - also strangely, people seem to drive Subarus until they die. Looking on Craigslist now for WRXs, I can't find one from the early to mid-2000's with less than 210K miles. If they have fewer miles, they're above market value. That's why I ended up not buying a Subaru.
