  1. That's where the hardware dongle would come in. Do you need that?
  2. Unless you need to jump machines often, skip the hardware dongle. And this: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1366318-REG/blackmagic_design_dv_resstud_davinci_resolve_stud_color.html
  3. Really, half? I don’t think I can negotiate that well.
  4. Budget (including currency): <$600USD Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 3ds Max w/ Arnold, Inventor, AutoCAD, etc. Someone about 1.5 hours away from me is offering a bundle of new-in-box parts for sale. They are: An Asus Prime Z490A ($214.99 new), 16GB of DDR4-3200 ($68.99 new), and an i7-10700k (379.88 new). Yea you did the math right, they want 102% of new price (before tax/shipping). I'm located in Northern CA, what would be a fair offer?
  5. Hope springs eternal, I guess. Or maybe stupidity? One or the other.
  6. Fair enough. I just googled the name of the website, and the second result was a list of fraudulent websites.
  7. I'm looking to upgrade my rendering machine. I came across this too-good-to-be-true website: https://www.giutrei.club/products/msi-geforce-rtx-2070-rtx-2070-tri-frozr-graphics-card-8-gb-gddr6-256-bit-14472/?variant=0 Has anyone tried this vendor? They seem to sell only Nvidia cards and corsair RAM, and brand themselves like MSI. Thoughts?
  8. Close. There's an option to select the default to be integrated graphics or the graphics card. I changed it to auto, and now it boots normally. Thanks! Also, it had hyperthreading disabled by default. Way to go, Dell.
  9. I'm upgrading an Optiplex 9020. It boots perfectly, but once I install the 1650 it won't post. I've tried a cheap AMD card and a Quadro as well to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks.
  10. I don't know if I'd use that myself. Isn't the sequential performance pretty bad?
  11. Why would that be better that s solution like this? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1417005-REG/pny_technologies_p_fd128otgsltc_ge_pny_128gb_duo_link.html/qa I;m not saying you're wrong, just curious.
  12. I hadn't considered an external hard drive/SSD. Something like this? https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/portable-solid-state-drives/portable-ssd-t7-touch-usb-3-2-1tb-black-mu-pc1t0k-ww/
  13. I'm buying my first machine with USB-C, and I've seen USB drives with Type-C on one end and Type-A on the other. Do any of you have experience/recommendations in this area? Thanks!
