  1. Thats odd because i when I went onto the page there wasn't any price listed. I wonder if my browser is being screwy for some reason.
  2. Not as bad as I thought. I was expecting another 0 on the end of that since they don't actively list the price.
  3. Not surprising. I am doing a computer science program right now and the amount of people who don't have basic computer skills is astounding. I'm on my 3rd semester of it and a lot of people still have no clue how to use a computer.
  4. I am having the same issue. Can't find much else other than RTX cards.
  5. I almost wonder if its part of the studio drivers for 10bit color on geforce cards. edit: Looks like 10bit color on geforce started with studio drivers 470. No idea if the 1650 supports it though. https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4847/~/how-to-enable-30-bit-color%2F10-bit-per-color-on-quadro%2Fgeforce%3F
  6. High speed signals don't take kindly to deviations in the circuit. Very slight changes to the trace or connections on which a high speed signal is running can cause all sorts of mayhem.
  7. There are no downsides to having a ryzen based system for development. The single core performance is spicy and the multicore performance is fantastic. My current dev machine is a 5900x and it crushes through everything I throw at it.
  8. My current system is very similar to those specs (better mobo for some OC, better gpu and powersupply because also game on it) and its excellent for my development purposes and VMs. The only problem I have had is VMware workstation being a hot pile of garbage on my 5900X system for some reason. Though I have never had an issue that I haven't been able to work around. @Herman Mcpootis made some good edits to you're parts list that make sense.
  9. I don't necessarily have a dedicated air fryer but I use my convection oven with a deep pan that has a grill on top. I found it to be excellent with pub foods like chicken wings, chicken fingers, tater tots, fries etc.
  10. You only need pro on the machine that you want to connect to. I believe just about every edition of windows comes with its own rdp client but only pro or higher has the server portion of it. But I second RDP since it's extremely simple to setup and will allow you to remotely access the machine.
  11. I will almost never take out cash but i always keep like a $100 with me for emergencies or I am going to a venue where they may or may not have debit/credit machines. The only time time I use cash in regular life is if I have a side job with someone who pays me in cash.
  12. Not sure. For the life of me I cannot remember. Been a while since I had it and it's not something that I usually buy as I have some family that own a cattle farm so I get a lot of meat for next to nothing. So its usually more of a let's do something different item. I would probably need to hit up a grocery store and look for it lol.
  13. I can't remember the name of the product right now but I had one that was a ground "beef" that one of my friends used in tacos. If she never told me it was vegetarian substitute I would have never know it wasn't beef. There are some extremely convincing subsitutes but they are few and far between. Though in don't know if I could ever make the switch to solely vege products as that would mean giving up hunting and smoking meats.
  14. Gm trucks need a 13mm socket for the drain plug.
