  1. Thank you very much for the advice and the compliment which I find is helping my decision. Good luck with the Oculus Rift S!
  2. Thanks for your questions, I updated the OP. I have everything on the list. I picked that monitor to use for connecting my DELL XPS 13 2in1 and my workplace assigned laptop, and to playing most game genres.
  3. Desired outcome: productivity (video editing, virtual machines, etc.) and current gaming on the 49" DELL (60 Hertz, OC potential to ~75, I believe). To be frank, I want to also enter the VR arena, so I guess that might mean bring on a new graphics card? What would you do; replace everything or keep any of it? I want a rig to stay with me a while (3+ years) so if the case I have is a good choice for staying current on motherboard sizes, I think I'll just keep it, though RGB and watercooling is a fun splurge I'll go for. Budget: What is best done (+/- $250) up to $1,000, $2,000, and $3,000? I currently have everything on this list https://pcpartpicker.com/user/JimDandy42/saved/#view=ffgNP6 PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (14nm) 3.2 GHz 6-Core Processor $249.98 @ Amazon CPU Cooler AMD Wraith Max 55.78 CFM CPU Cooler $55.00 @ Amazon Motherboard ASRock AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard $142.12 @ Amazon Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory $58.59 @ Amazon Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory $58.59 @ Amazon Storage Samsung 970 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $99.99 @ Amazon Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6 GB SC GAMING Video Card $419.99 @ Amazon Case Fractal Design Define Nano S Mini ITX Desktop Case $79.99 @ Newegg Power Supply EVGA SuperNOVA G3 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $110.99 @ Amazon Monitor Dell U4919DW 49.0" 5120x1440 60 Hz Monitor $1439.99 @ Dell Keyboard Logitech G613 Wireless Standard Keyboard $119.99 @ Amazon Mouse Logitech G903 Wireless Optical Mouse $84.99 @ Best Buy Headphones SteelSeries Arctis 7 Headset Speakers Creative Labs Sound BlasterX Katana 0 nW 2.1 Channel Speakers $229.99 @ Newegg Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $3150.20 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-04-29 01:14 EDT-0400 Stay happy and healthy =]
  4. Please understand people don't read posts posted whilst they're typing a reply to another post. Wish there was a timestamp that said "started to reply to thread".
  5. 1: Done. 2: Mea culpa. 3: If you wish to educate, a subforum for discussion would be better than a unpinned topics, IMHO. Thank you.
  6. This is an attitude I strongly disagree with. Build it and they will come. Plus, if I were to tag every topic I see that related to security, I could fill up that forum with 10 pages after an hour, I'm sure.
  7. Any chance we can get a subforum dedicated to discussing the security aspects of hardware and software? I.e., a more proper place to have posted my thread on Privacybox and Nitrokey.
  8. There is surprisingly little chatter online about Privacybox, a physically-in-German fully-encrypted, open source cloud storage service set to launch this fall (they're in beta, ATM). I have been following the development of NitroKey, which is how I picked up on Privacybox. Is anyone here familar with any of these two?
  9. Get a sharpening belt and a straight blade razor. You'll never need another blade again. Great heirloom item potential, too.
  10. I'm sorry to hear about your father. Hopefully you will be able to have a still mind and reflect a little on what kind of person he's taught you to be, and let that come through in your final good-bye. If it were I who were dying, I think I'd wish for people to quickly say their piece (unless it was just already understood) so we could spend the rest of the time not being incapacitated from the inevitable. I'm sure your father knows you love him and you could just tell him "I love you" and be done with that part. I hope you find peace and mindfulness.
  11. I wish they would go back to the best version (HOMM II) and just refine it... no other comment at this time.
  12. I would, off the top of my head, say there are the horizontal BEHOLD-MY-FLOPPY-DISK-DRIVES style and the more modern (at the time, hehe) turbo button style. With a style chosen, might be easier to help you find a case. Sounds like a neat project, keep us posted!
  13. Oooooo, back it up... beep beep beep.
