Budget (including currency): $1200 Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: most likely used for rendering and working on CAD (computer assisted design) models.I usually have two monitors plugged in (32"+24") and thinking about getting a third. This will also most likely be hooked up to a 4k TV via HDMI. would like to build a modest true mid tier rig that would handle most of these tasks. 3-D modeling > Gaming+Streaming YES: Autocad, Revit, Rhino, Vectorworks, V-Ray, Keyshot, Lumion, Adobe Suites (ID,Illus,Photo mostly) NO: video encoding, heavy gaming (like AAA games are fun but meh not really a huge gamer, like I'll check out a game but that's about it) MAYBE: very VERY light gaming (mostly free games like LFD2, LOL), Streaming, Virtual Reality Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Current running: (8 years old) CPU: i7-3770k GPU: Gigabyte Radeon 7870 HD (2GB) RAM: 8GB 1333 (2x4GB) STOR: 512gb crucial (SSD) + 7200RPM WD 2TB Black Option 1: (https://pcpartpicker.com/list/MdjYFG) CPU: R5 3600 GPU: RTX 2060 S (8gb) RAM: 32GB 3200 cl14 (4x8gb) STOR: 512gb ADATA XPG (NVME) + 7200RPM WD 2TB Black would like to experience this pcie 4.0 stuff and would like to have a small upgrade pathway if possible. I know there is no such thing as future proofing but if there is a good option in this budget I'm all for ideas. Much thanks!
  2. What would happen if I plugged in my 2019 15" MBP to my desktop motherboard that has a gen 1 Type-C? Will the MBP charge or just completely kill the USB C port? Asking for a friend
