    PC Build for Software Development

    Thanks for your comment lacion and I do understand your concern. To be clear, the virtualization I plan to do is not really intense. For mobile application development (I use Xamarin on Visual Studio), I will use Android and iOS emulators which can run on mid-range setups, and some other times I would run on a real device. For VMs, I do not plan to do very intense virtualization, most of the time 8GB of RAM for a VM would be more than enough. So I am not very much concerned regarding memory (and I can always pop up more if needed). What does concerns me about your comment is Ryzen and the problems you got running VMs. I will investigate on the matter and will consider going for the blue team. Again, thank you for your comment.

    PC Build for Software Development

    Great, thanks for the advice MandoPanda. I have made some changes: -Switched PSU from 750W Bronze to a 650W Gold (I believe this will be enough if I decide to buy a 1080/1080 TI sometime next year). -Switched MoBo from a B450 to X470 from Asus. The before mentioned Gygabyte MoBo had a good amount of bad reviews stating it will stop working after some months. It also has front panel USB-C as a bonus (I have not seen any MSI X470 MoBo with front panel USB-C at this price point, not really important, but I like the future-proofing, and I know most MoBo has USB-C in the back, but I rather avoid that if I am just quickly plugging a USB-C peripheral). -Switched Case to one that has a front panel USB-C. I know I exceeded the budget (900 USD before taxes and shipping), but I hope that I will get a nice deal on some parts on Black Friday/Cyber Monday (I remind you that this parts will be shipped to Dominican Republic). I will be buying some parts as time passes and wait for the most expensives parts for BF/CM (CPU, MoBo, RAM). Here is the updated list, let me know what you think.

    Thank you for your response and yeah, I am taking this into consideration. Something that I have heard is that if I am buying a 2700X I should step up the Motherboard to X470 for better power delivery, is this true? I am looking at the Asus X470 Prime Pro but the GIGABYTE X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming looks the same but cheaper. Choosing a MoBo is a bit confusing for me.
  4. Hello, I am a software developer (freelancer) currently working with an i7-6700HQ laptop, GTX 950M, 128GB SATA SSD and 1TB HDD. I am planning to build my first desktop PC around black friday/cyber monday so I can improve my productivity with better performance. I am working for a client with a very large web application (over 16k code files) that consumes some time to compile and I will eventually develop Android and iOS applications that requires emulation. So I need high core count and NVMe is a plus to quickly access any needed file. Was considering i9-9900K but it is too expensive, so I need a dGPU (any cheap GPU in eBay should work) to work with Ryzen with no APU. In the future (about a year from now) I do plan to save and buy a high end GPU to game on 1440p with a SATA SSD for gaming storage. But for now, everything I want to focus on buying for productivity first. In the short future I do plan to buy a pair of 1440p monitors, mice, keyboard, webcam and headset (I frequently have Skype calls). I will be buying these on Amazon and/or Newegg and they will be shipped to Dominican Republic, consider the budget to be 900 USD for the PC build alone (excluding shipping cost and taxes). Here is what I am considering buying (might change on the deals I might get on black friday/cyber monday). Thanks in advance.

  5. EDIT: Just removed and reinserted the stick and now everything is working as expected for now, guess I just put it right the first time So, after much waiting, just recieved my new RAM Stick of 8GB and managed to have 16GB with Dual Channel and thanks to you guys. But on the other hand im now experiencing some problems, I constantly get BSOD randomly, while playing, browsing, while writing this (twice), etc. I've managed to write down 3 of the exceptions on the BSOD, those 3 are: IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL, SYSTEM THREAD NOT HANDLED and PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA. Does this means the RAM stick is useless or it can be fixed somehow? I'll be waiting for your responses. Below I attached 2 pictures of CPU-Z, one in the memory tab and the other on the SPD that has specific info on the ram I bought.
  6. Will be buying this in a week more or less, will let you know the result. Thanks so much for the help guys.
  7. Looking arround the internet, found these two: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Module-2133MHz-Unbuffered-SODIMM/dp/B0143UM6Y0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480690195&sr=8-2&keywords=DDR4+2133mhz+8gb+15-15-15-36+sodimm and https://www.amazon.com/G-Skill-2133MHz-SO-DIMM-PC4-17000-Ripjaws/dp/B017UC3NVI/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1480690195&sr=8-3&keywords=DDR4+2133mhz+8gb+15-15-15-36+sodimm What do you guys think?
  8. There's an open SODIMM slot that you can insert another RAM stick. It is an ASUS 15.6" FHD F550VX-NH76 Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz), NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M, 8 GB Memory, 128 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD. The NewEgg link above have more detailed info of the specs.
  9. Hello, I just recently bought a laptop at newegg that has a soldered 8 GB RAM and also has an open slot and I want to buy another 8 GB RAM stick to get 16 GB and also go for Dual Channel. What I find strange is that CPU-Z does not give me any specific info about the soldered RAM (SPD), maybe because it is soldered, I dunno. And I cannot find specific info about what RAM should I buy to get Dual Channel. The laptop I bought is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834234412&cm_re=f550vx-_-34-234-412-_-Product in the other hand, at the Q&A section of the product page, someone says what kind of RAM you should buy, but I want to know what you guys think, knowing you guys know tech. I attached 2 pictures, one of CPU-Z in the memory tab and other of what Task Manager says about the memory. If you guys need any other info, just ask. Thanks in advance
