    Help .. thanks

    There are actually dozens of power supplies I would probably recommend over those two if you include the plethora of wattage options that would be more than sufficient. Probably half a dozen different models.

    AMD or INTEL

    Ryzen 2600.

    Sata data cable splitter Imac

    Internal SSD for boot and programs, second SSD external by USB, you won't know the difference most of the time. DRASTICALLY easier.

    970 Evo in T420 using m.2 to Sata adapter

    Why not save the money on the uselessly fast SSD and the adapter and just get a 960 EVO SATA drive which will fit right in to your laptop and still make it a heck of a lot snappier?

    Is this a good Cinebench R20 score?

    My 2600 is pushed to 4.1ghz on an AIO, but with 2933mhz memory and my best score thus far is a 3170, and stock on air with CnQ enabled was about a 2700, so you're right in the area! Now start cranking up the voltage!

    Shopping for new Keyboard and Mouse

    I just wanted to thank everyone who pitched in here again. I pulled the trigger on the new Logitech G MX518 Hero(my got, what has happened to product names) and it's on it's way, I'll post some feedback about it when it gets here, especially if I can find my original MX518. The keyboard unfortunately will have to wait just a little while, as I snagged an RTX 2060 today for $270 and I have a lot else going on outside of computers.

    Order to Watch MCU leading up to Endgame

    That's part of what makes this so tough. They do take place at roughly the same time, though from context clues, they're working on that project(trying to reduce spoilers) for longer than the entire time span of Infinity War, and there's no real indication of how long elapses between the end of Ant Man and the Wasp and the post credits scene, but there's no way that van was put together overnight, so there could be a relatively small time gap there as well. But really, I just put Dr. Strange, Thor Ragnarok and Infinity War together because they directly feed into each other in a very linear way that seldom happens elsewhere. The post credits scene for Dr. Strange feeds straight into Ragnarok, at the end of which, Thanos' ship appears. I know I already threw out Post Credits scenes with Captain Marvel and with The Incredible Hulk as being the primary factor for an order, but those are more like teases(as are most others) than we get in Dr. Strange and Ragnarok. Those are more like the first scene of the next movie than just a teaser.
  8. I know this has been beaten to death by various Op-Ed articles online, but I found most of them don't have the same order that I've come up with, so I thought it could be fun to open a discussion on it, since we're down to abotu 10 days out from Endgame, and I should *just* be able to sneak them in if I let them play in the background while I do other things after work. So here we go, my preferred order: Captain America: The First Avenger Captain Marvel Iron Man Iron Man 2 The Incredible Hulk Thor The Avengers Iron Man 3 Captain America:The Winter Soldier Thor: The Dark World Guardians of the Galaxy GotG 2 Avengers: Age of Ultron Ant-Man Captain America:Civil War Spider Man Homecoming Black Panther Ant-Man and the Wasp Dr. Strange Thor: Ragnarok Avengers: Infinity War I try to stick mostly chronologically, with the only real hiccup being the after credits scene on Ant-Man and the Wasp which happens at the end of Infinity War, and I actually have it WAY up the list from there. My thinking here is that I like how cohesive the stories and after credits scenes are from Dr. Strange, to Ragnarok then to Infinity War, so I don't want to break them up, and I don't want anything happening with these heroes after Infinity War and before Endgame because that would hurt continuity and neither Dr. Strange or Thor Ragnarok have very specific places in the timeline, except that Ragnarok has to come after Dr. Strange and *right* before Infinity War, so it doesn't hurt anything putting Ant-Man and the Wasp before both of them, so long as you don't watch the after credits scene from it until after Infinity War. Thoughts?
  9. They often give a little overhead on top of rated speeds to make sure they don't dip too far during busier hours.

    Xbox One S All Digital is Coming out Soon

    I actually use mine for a BD player too, so that doesn't help me. I also couldn't get a decent 4K bluray player for $50, so it's a bad value for me. My nephews were genuinely confused when I sat them down at me Xbox 360 and it couldn't play any of my games without putting the disk in, so they would be fine.

    Budget triple screen monitors?

    So, right off the bat, Ryzen absolutely loves memory speed, and the cost of getting DDR4-3000 over 2400 is negligible, especially with sales and some off brands, like OLOy. I would do B450 just in case you end up getting a Ryzen 3rd Generation down the road. I personally don't like the value or limitations of a 120GB boot drive, especially with how utterly cheap SSDs have gotten, but if you're down to your last $20, it's a lot better than not getting one. That is a good deal for a 27" monitor, and it should be good enough.

    Budget triple screen monitors?

    Maybe we can look at this as a more holistic approach, what would your budget be for the monitors and system build, and we can try and find a good combination of the three that works for you.
  14. Now there's an interesting thought. I haven't actually checked how toxic my thermal pastes are. I have definitely consumed some while doing build and eating pizza. Especially back when I was re-jigging my chiller back in the day and having to re-seat the block and replace the ruined thermal paste every time I got below -20.
