  1. While a power user might appreciate that feature, the vast majority of people would just leave the switch on. And I'm pretty sure there will be plenty of people who call customer support asking why their machine wont turn on only to find the battery switch turned off. Its just not worth the time and effort to implement.
  2. Buy some cable extensions, something like this: https://www.amazon.com/CableMod-ModFlex-8-pin-PCI-Extension/dp/B077QR27GF/ref=sr_1_5?crid=SSBETC3QL8YB&dchild=1&keywords=cpu+cable+extension&qid=1590962355&sprefix=cpu+cable+ex%2Caps%2C199&sr=8-5 You can also get extensions for your 24 pin power and pci express power so everything matches and looks cool .
  3. I think for non-competative gaming, these newer TV's make a lot of sense. I bet Red Dead Redemption 2 would look absolutely gorgeous on a high end pc and a good oled hdr tv. Lots of games i feel are better experienced on the big screen and these newer tv's are finally giving the no compromises big screen gaming experience. Exciting times.
  4. You could put something like a lamp or plant over there to help fill the space. Its funny I'm sort of the opposite of you. I like having extra open space available. At my office I have half of my L shaped desk pretty much open for when I look at architectual and mechanical/plumbing plans, and that habit spilled over to my home setup.
  5. I would recommend that you spend all that money on a good mouse. Something well made with a good adjustable dpi sensor and is comfortable in your hand. While a "gaming" keyboard is nicer than a basic keyboard, they aren't necessary. A nice mechanical keyboard is a luxury item. A basic membrane keyboard will game just as well as a fancy pants cherry mx rgb keyboard. But I would have a hard time gaming at the same level on a cheap, basic mouse.
  6. While I'm not an expert on the requirements of Cad/Revit, those specs blow my workstation at work out of the water. We are all still running on Haswell era Xeon E5-1607 (Quad core no hyper-threading) paired with a Quadro K4200 (I think. It's been a while since I looked at my system specs.) I still have a good enough experience with that setup that I can get my Cad/Revit work done. Your build should give a very satisfactory experience.
  7. Same monitor. The cheaper one is sold by Amazon directly, the more expensive one is a 3rd party seller on the Amazon marketplace. I actually just bought the same monitor a few weeks ago. Good choice.
  8. I broke my leg playing high school football my freshman year, I have at lease 2 concussions from football and one from skiing (hit my head on an ice patch...yes i was wearing a helmet. Would have been much worse if I wasn't.) 2 years ago I fell on my shoulder while a snowboarder lost control and crashed into me from behind and caused me to completely separate my shoulder. Didn't need surgery, but it took me almost a month before I could raise my arm above my head again without pain. I also suffered a mild MCL sprain in that crash, but that healed up rather quickly.
  9. I used to be a very active member of the TachPB forums a while back. Got back into paintball recently and found the site to be dead. Lurked the mcarterbrown forums too but never posted much.
  10. I have to use a case on modern phones because the bezels are too god damn small. I have nothing to hold and I fat finger the keyboard when I reach across while typing. I personally hate the trend of an all screen phone. I have big hands and I need something to hold onto. I use a galaxy s9+ and the utter lack of side bezels forced me to buy a case. But I only bought one just big enough for me to type comfortably. Not like a big otter box or something like that.
  11. I have 2 old desktops: one Ivy Bridge i5, and a really old Xeon based system. I also have 2 old retired laptops in my closet. I also have a box of old parts, 2 empty cases in my closet, plus my daily driver desktop and laptop. My roommates each have a laptop of their own. I also have a Haswell based Xeon workstation at the office I use for my job, but my employer supplied that. Thought it should count since it is the system I use the most.
  12. I do. It helped me quit cigarettes and hookah. I also vape a lot less than I did when I started. Now its really only when I drink that I vape a bunch. If I'm sober I can go a couple days without it.
  13. A hotdog is technically a sandwich. But it's a different genre of sandwich. It's like saying The Beatles and Megadeath are both rock bands. Technically yes, but very different. Sub sandwiches are usually connected pieces of bread too but those are considered sandwiches too.
