    You're asking a lot of your potential machine.

    If anything, you could get an Ender 3 V2 / Ender 5 and just upgrade the hell out of it. An E3D Chimera as an upgrade with their stainless steel/nozzle X nozzles (as you want to print abrasives) would fulfill the print two things requirements -- though that would require firmware changes and most likely, you'd need to upgrade the mainboard.
     
    And, as you want to print abrasives, that somewhat limits your choices. With a requirement for 0.2mm wall thickness you'd want a 0.15 or 0.2mm nozzle, but it's not recommended to print abrasives through such a small nozzle due to the increased risks of clogs.
     
    Why do you need to print 2 materials simultaneously? Is it inherent to your design? Or can the part be changed in such a way as to avoid this requirement?

    If it's just a couple of small projects you may want to go check your local library. Here in the US several of them offer "maker spaces" with utilities such as 3D printing, CNC, etc.

    Aside from the PSU possibly being pushed to it's limit with an Ampere card, looks pretty fine to me. Try and see if you can get a 3060 Ti with an LTT verified actual gamer drop if you can though.

    ImAlsoRan got a reaction from Ydfhlx in Comparing 2 builds for new pc   
    Will have to warn you, the 2nd build (labeled uncle's) is under budget since there's no price for that GPU, so it defaults to 0. When it goes back in stock, it'll be much higher than that.
     
    Aside from that, the builds aren't very balanced. The cooler for the i5 is overkill (you don't need a 240mm AIO for that CPU, especially since it can't overclock), and the cooler for the i9 is underkill (you probably need more than a tower cooler if you want decent performance).
     
    Aside from that, the "friend" motherboard is really a little too budget, and the "uncle" motherboard" is way overkill. Unless you plan on extreme overclocking, you won't even begin to take advantage of all of it's features, leading to it being a pretty unnecessary expense.
     
    Aside from that, 16GB of RAM is pretty standard for the midrange PC but for a $2000 budget you really should be opting for 32GB of RAM. The "friend" build uses a NVMe drive which is great, but the "uncle" build uses a SATA SSD, which (avoiding getting too technical) will be a huge bottleneck, especially considering that your OS will be on it. I do recommend getting a beefy HDD for less-often played games since those 100s of gigabytes stack up quickly.
     
    A 3060 Ti is fine but there's this unofficial rule of PC building that the majority of your budget should be on the GPU. I feel that, once they're in stock, a 3070 or even 3080 would be a far better option for your budget. The cases are both fine, nothing wrong there. I personally use an H510 and love it.
     
    The 550W PSU is kind of underpowered considering you're throwing an Intel CPU and a Ampere GPU in it, and even for the 750W it's really stretching it's capability. They also didn't include Windows. Perhaps they have their own way of obtaining it, but to keep with the rules of this forum, I have to recommend to you that you purchase it and consider it in your budget.
     
    Altogether, the friend's build is pretty balanced (aside from the overkill cooling and subpar motherboard) but honestly right now you shouldn't be building a PC. Unless you can get a GPU through the LTT verified actual gamer program, the sad truth is that everything is marked up 200-300% and you won't be getting much value for your money. Alongside that, Intel isn't a very good proposition, and that's in terms of performance and value for money. In 2021, you really should be looking at AMD. Their value is much higher and they produce less heat and require much less power, not to mention that every Ryzen CPU overclocks (and it's easy to do so with a button using Ryzen master).
     
    Honestly, CAD$2000 is a little much for 1080p gaming, unless it's RTX. I had an i5-4460 and GTX 1060 6GB and it could play Warzone at 1080p fine. Do I recommend that specific config? Heck no! It was really stretching the hardware and the i5 was a total bottleneck, and I doubt the system would handle a game from 2022 with flying colors. However, 1080p gaming for these graphics-moderate games isn't really a huge expense right now (that's ignoring the ridiculous markup right now, of course). Built a R5-2600 GTX 1660 build for my brother in 2019 and his rig can handle most games at 1080p, and it only cost USD$800 with RGB goodness.

    Can you try making an account from the recovery environment and giving that admin permissions? If it doesn't let you do that then you may need to consider putting a Windows Password Recovery tool on a USB and booting to it.

    ImAlsoRan got a reaction from NunoLava1998 in Does Apple M1 graphic's actually better than 1050ti   
    You can run GPU benchmarks such as OctaneBench and VRay, I believe. Pretty sure this comparison was based on expectations. What he expected the 1050Ti could do, the M1 usually could, and what he expected would be the 1050Ti's limit, was usually the M1's limit too.

    You never mentioned gaming. You're going to get wildly different results since macOS uses Metal and Windows uses DirectX (which is why there aren't as many games on Mac, and why the games on Mac don't perform that great) M1 benchmarks are hard since most established ones weren't ported at the time.

    ImAlsoRan got a reaction from Vishera in Who's the culprit here?   
    You won't get any display output without integrated graphics. The hardware simply isn't there. If you couldn't afford a GPU, you probably shouldn't have splurged on an expensive CPU, Motherboard, Case, or RAM sticks. I can guarantee that a GPU is more important than an all-RGB setup. Nonetheless, it is quite weird that your RAM isn't working. Ryzen usually works better when the RAM sticks are in "2" and "4" (where slot "1" is closest to the CPU). Have you tried a CMOS reset?

    Ordered a motherboard without checking if it was compatible with my case, thus I had to make my own.
     
    A couple facts:
    The PSU is attached with packing tape. The motherboard isn't screwed in, the only thing keeping it in place is the port shield on my GPU. The SSD is mounted atop the Hard Drive. Specs:
    R7 3700x Corsair 32GB Vengance RGB RAM 3200MHz Asus ROG B450-F GAMING Motherboard Some generic SSD (Samsung I think) Segate 1TB HDD I'll be trading in some of my old stuff for a new case and GPU, and hopefully I can snag an SSD with some of the leftover money.

    Try running a dedicated GPU benchmark, like Cinebench. UserBenchmark has been found to be a bad representation of performance.

    I'd start with new RAM (get 16GB of 3600MHz at the minimum for Ryzen to reach it's full potential) and wait for Zen 3.

    ImAlsoRan got a reaction from JakeSublime in Where does sound come to my headset if I don’t have a sound card?   
    The difference usually comes to noise tolerance (from either a better chip or better shielding), but even that will usually come from higher-quality capacitors, still only found on expensive motherboards. I really just recommend you get an external headphone amp as those usually have the highest power and quality DACs, and they are separated from all of your PC components which means less noise.
