  1. Should work, I think your best bet would be a 1070Ti is youre loooking at more than 1080p. But like I said, not an expert on multiple monitor setups :P. Just from twhat i've read.
  2. I'm assuming you're looking for part recommendations: For Workstation purposes once again i would recommedn Ryzen, but at a 1000-1300 $ range youll probably end up with really entry-mid level stuff, possibly not enough to run 5 monitors. If you can increase the budget, Id go with a Ryzen 7 1700 and a GTX 1070ti along with a 1080p IPS (or maybe even VA) panel monitor. The monitor will help get the best colour accuracy for photo and video editing, My recommendation is not to go overkill on multi monitor setups, instead invest in one good ips monitor for your editing. However, if youre bound by your budget, you could manage a Ryzen 5 1400 or maybe even 1600 with a GTX 1050TI which should serve your purposes.If you want to run multiple monitors like 3-4 im not sure if this will cut it, you may need a 1060. But basically what you seem to be asking for is a High end setup at a budget price which is kind of tough at that price even second hand would be tricky to get 5 monitors running. But with regards to this number of monitors, maybe the forum has someone more experienced to respond to this
  3. Nothing much to know about MAD, just processors like intel. If you dont overclock or do anything too geeky, it works just fine all the same. I would recommend going with a x370 motherboard and Ryzen 5 1600 (comes with cpu cooler which is enough to overclock. or the 1600x which is without a cooler but comes overclocked. you will need to find a compatible cooler i think.) or a Ryzen 7 1700(x). Below are some links.

Either way ill leave this decision to you, just a recommendation. But, most importantly, i would recommend comparing prices between picking up indiv. parts and ordering a pre-built system. Seems like for once pre-builts maybe giving much better value. check out letsbld.com by NZXT or cyberpowerpc.com or somethign like that
  4. Couple of things. 1. Where are you buying this? as in which country? 2. Have you considered Ryzen? Im not discouraging intel, just making sure you're aware of the security issues recently brought to light. It's a big trigger for many who have migrated to AMD. 3. SSD I would recommend a Samsung 850 EVO.
  5. Yup Just checked that out, seems so much better!
  6. It's funny, I haven't bought a pre-built in 10 years (since i first started picking out my own computers :P) because I could build a better one for probably 25-35% less. And now it seems like that trend has possibly turned around. It's really funny how the world works sometimes
  7. well actually builders like cyberpower let you customize everything right down to the case fans and vibration resistant plugs for them. really versatile and yet a fair bit cheaper so the question of cheaper components or "generic" components isnt really valid.
  8. So, I came across this video by GameSpot... I'm sure many of you may have already seen this. In a nutshell it conveys that buying a pre-built system from Cyberpower or other builders works out cheaper than buying the parts and assembling yourself. seemingly a $100-$200 difference, maybe even more. So I actually went and checked out some specs and builds and found this to be pretty true. Has anyone else checked this out and verified? Mostly this is just to get everyone into a discussion and see what methods everyone is using to get the best bang for their buck.
  9. Thank you, the GSuite reference helped me find a rather cheap solution! it really helped. Thank You.
  10. Thank you. My Gsuite gives me 30 Gigs fo drive space, I think this should do just fine for now. I can upgrade to an additional 100 gigs for CAD $25/year or to 1TB for $125/year. Looks like that's the perfect solution for my purposes. And very reasonable I think, given that once the files are downloaded, I will clear the drive anyways.
  11. Yea, thats not something I'd be up for. And from another country a networked drive is as good as pointless I would think. let me check on the Gsuite thing thatn pineapple suggested. Mya be worth a look
  12. I Don't know about freeNas, was looking at using a personal computer with 4-10TB of storage and maybe use 1TB dedicated as the File host where they can upload the files and i can download them/transfer them to my personal drives. Is something like this easy and safe to do?
  13. Will check it out. Thank You
  14. I do own a domain and access to Gsuite. But am not currently a student of any Uni.
  15. Hello LTTians, So I have one or two colleagues in other parts of the world who are sharing files with me via google drive, However, soon the files will start to get extremely large for GDrive. (in excess of 20-30 GB per batch). I wanted to know: 1. are there any really good free/cheap ftp servers or transfer utilities or websites that let you transfer such large file sizes with ease. 2. If not, would it be easier (and safe) to turn a hard disk on my private computer into some kind of file upload server? Thanks in advance
