  1. Unless your doing real time rendering of models, Quadro’s are irrelevant, especially since the student license of SolidWorks doesn’t support GPU acceleration. OP, buy something you like, just remember CPU cores and RAM are important for SolidWorks. GPU is nice for designing objects and you can allow the GPU to draw items faster in real time. But since your just entering college, buy a computer with a nice GPU, because let’s be frank here, your gonna want to play games with your friends. I remember engineering school… everybody likes to play games together.
  2. SolidWorks likes CPU cores and RAM, not as much concerned with GPU's. Also please provide a budget (if applicable) and currency. I would pick the Dell XPS over the MS Studio laptop.
  3. LG/Samsung color signature's are fairly damn close to one another. Purely for movie's, Sony beats out all of the competition. As a (77" A9G) owner, we like our Sony, but for gaming, Sony sucks. That's why I had to bite the bullet on a LG (65" C10) OLED for my man cave.
  4. LG (to my knowledge) doesn't make 'QLED', that's nomenclature is Samsung's. However, OLED > everything else.
  5. So the Nano Cell is a IPS display, thus awesome viewing angles, but the unfortunate reality about IPS is the poor black performance. QLED's IMO are a better choice for a dark room over IPS.
  6. Go to a Best Buy or some big box store to look at TV's in person. This one I'd recommend if you could shell out a little bit more cash, however, sticking with a $1500 budget for a 75" flat screen is kinda tricky since you want to stick those brands (understandably). Congrats on the house man, I'm still saving up for one myself lol.
  7. Your using a OEM motherboard, that 5mm difference is how companies prevents customers from upgrading their systems easily. Kinda a shitty thing to do, but your best bet is to pick up a cheap motherboard (used market, like eBay/Craigslist) then move your hardware onto that motheboard. You might be able to find a CPU heat sink for that particular motherboard, but your likely better off getting another motherboard. Keep your CPU, RAM, case (is your case OEM)? Etc.
  8. @GoodBytes Nice little overview, how long did it take you to put that together? Also, IMO Windows 11 isn't that exciting and honestly needs more work. Windows start menu search has gotten worse somehow. MS is turning into a MacOS copy cat. Widgets, they tried... they tried. Other than that, it's free and so far hasn't been the biggest pain in the ass to use lol. Lastly, MS needs to bring back Windows aero glass transparency from Win. 7/Vista era, Windows 11's transparency effects looks like 10's.
  9. I keep all of my ‘mission critical’ files on offsite backup services and external hard drives. But I almost never keep any important documents on my personal computers in case of the computer dying or something.
  10. Probably build quality of older business laptops. Older ThinkPads (early 2000’s) were great and lasted a long time. Now my work laptop (Dell) what a piece of shit lol.
  11. Windows Vista really wasn’t as bad as people made it out to be, at least my experiences were fine (when it was a thing).
  12. A cockroach? Found it in my grandmother’s old Gateway when I needed to extract data off of the drive.
  13. Here’s the thing, since you already have the DeathAdder V2 I wouldn’t worry about it. Until it fails or other reasons, upgrade later down the line. I think you’ll be fine.
