  1. Youtube has started asking me what I think about the videos I watch. So I gave the same response I gave This Old Tony videos: Lifechanging. Useful. Inspiring. My guess is that these things affect the recommendations algorithm.
  2. That looks good! I just found out I have to attend one semester before I can put in a request, so I'll table this until then. The good news is that there will be even more processor options in four months!
  3. 1. Budget & Location $US, $1500? $2000? 2. Aim I'll be getting a degree in Industrial Design – so CAD (Fusion 360 and others) along with video editing and rendering. I might do some older gaming, but nothing more recent for a while. (Except for when Halo Reach comes out on Steam – That's going to be awesome!) I've been browsing Newegg's higher memory prebuilt systems sorted by price (Newegg link). Depending on how I massage the search presets, it can get sort of crazy. Like, systems with 128GB ddr4, GTX 1080Ti, and a Xeon 6 core (ok, the Xeon isn't impressive.) for around $1600. It almost looks like I could get a system that's actually cheaper to get prebuilt, rather than build. I have experience building my own systems, and would be confident in my ability too. However, school starts in a month, and a good build takes time to source. It would also be better for the workorder part to be one system, I'm going to have to get this approved by the grant people if it's two or three products it's easier, rather than approving 30 pieces to build a PC. (I'm also trying to avoid the word 'gamer' in the system name.) I'd like to find something that would be upgradeable to the Ryzen 7 line, and hackability in general. Refurbished systems are fine by me. I'll do research on the systems before purchasing to assess future upgradeability. I'd appreciate suggestions on general direction, prebuilt or otherwise. 3. Monitors I have an old 22" 1920x1080 LG that works. I'll most likely upgrade that as well. 4. Peripherals Logitech MX hasn't failed me – wait. The micro switches fail me about once every two years. Any suggestions for longevity? Or do mice just do that, and need new switches often? I guess I could just commit to buying a bag of the switches and resoldering once a year or so. Also, do any of you have opinions on 3d mice for CAD work? Currently I have a pan and orbit shortcut buttons on my mouse. 5. Why are you upgrading? My laptop shutters sometimes in Fusion 360, and my old desktop was a great system – ten years ago. In no particular order random links to systems for me to keep track of. https://www.newegg.com/lenovo-thinkstation-p500-business-desktops-workstations/p/1VK-0003-08132 https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=100019096 100 601294503 601300929 601202226 601190701 601190712 601202908 601202911 601202926 601300934&Order=PRICE https://www.newegg.com/p/1VK-0001-3SKP4 Looks like this has a PNY GeForce GTX 1080 Ti though I'm not for sure on the brand.
