    How Do You Like to Dress?

    Slacks or jeans with a button down shirt or polo for work. Outside of work it's totally dependent on weather and what I'm doing. I'm not going to go swimming if the lake is frozen and I have my winter jacket on, but I'm also not going to ride my motorcycle with no protective gear.
  2. What storage device are you attempting to install this on? What about the rest of your system specs? Are you booting into a live environment through usb or cd/dvd? If so, have you tried other ports or media?

    MSI software Rant.

    Saw MSI and RANT in one sentence.... just stopped by to say while I was in school, one of my peers had the absolute worst experience with a MSI laptop (2014) and I have not touched MSI since.

    Music production pc

    Just get 32gb or more RAM and a 500gb-1tb SSD (save your DAW and VST's here), then depending where you save your files you might want a large 1tb+ HDD for saving your music to. You don't really need a graphics card but you could always get something like a 2060 to have dedicated graphics. (Might be useful depending on what resolution your monitor is or will be.. or multiple monitors) Also make sure you get another processor cooling solution because the stock heatsink that comes with the i7-8700 is not that great. Even a 212 evo will provide better cooling for minimal cost.

    Whats the difference?

    One is 1 newer making it 2080 cause 1080+1 is 2080 Just kidding. However only slightly, the 2080 is one generation newer than the 1080 and should receive updates for ~1 year longer, it's also RTX instead of GTX which utilizes "Ray Tracing". If money isn't an issue, go with the 2080.

    What do you guys think of Paint.net?

    I use GIMP for most editing, but for quick edits I'll launch paint.net

    Does the youth generations choosing hip-hop over punk-rock?

    Love me some old school hip hop. But I also love metal and alternative and trance and bass music and shoegaze and jazz and elevator music (to name a few genres) so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  8. It was a recommendation from another user.
  9. What happens if you take a large file (or group of files) and copy them over to the E: drive? Do you see the read/write going up during the copy process?
  10. Server currently has 16GB and was only serving 27 cliients, soon to be up to 100 concurrent sessions. But to @Alakesh, what both replies state is a step in the correct direction, you need much more "power" to host these virtual desktop environments, especially if multiple people are hitting the server with photoshop and other intensive programs.

    Case With No Glass: Recommendations?

    https://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/define-series/define-c This is what I'm currently waiting for my work PC build. It comes with or w/o a windowed panel, so I opted for w/o since I want it to blend in with the rest of the office computers. (Kind of hard when everything else are HP's but meh)

    At the age of 25 Iv started to read books

    The movies are great but the books are greater! (if you're into star wars at all, my friend has told me about all the star wars books and how crazy the lore gets in that universe, so I'd recommend that as well)

    Why are you a computer enthusiast?

    Pick a number, any number. Well, any number that is 0 or 1. To the OP: I try to keep an open mind to everything. If something interests me I learn more about it and the easiest way for me to learn things is through technology so... it all kind of fell into place. Once I decided to get my degree in the IT realm I figured I'd build my own PC and it's been downhill ever since. I actually just convinced my boss to let me build my own PC for work and I'm just waiting on the cooler and case then I'll be putting it all together!

    Need speaker suggestions

    Hi there, been very busy at work today but it seems like you're on the right track. I haven't had time to look further into these speakers and I've only dealt with subwoofers and amplifiers before and not the speakers. Maybe others here will give you some insight otherwise I will check out some more things as I get time to. Good luck still! My other question is are there any particular size requirements for the speakers? There's quite a few sizes to choose from.

    Need speaker suggestions

    Are you building your own enclosure for the speakers? Do you want to utilize all 4 channels of your amp I'm assuming?
