just built a sweet-ass gamerbox...
ain’t gonna be used for gaming, but the guys wife is a photography aficionado, so the build is about the same ;p
Ryzen 2700 8-core with 32 gb ddr4 ram, an 8-gig rx580 vid card with a terabyte ssd boot drive and a 4-tb data drive (both WD). loaded the latest 1903 win10 build (cuz why not) and goddamn is it fast !
from the mobo logo blinking off, it boots to the desktop in under 10 seconds. and i didn’t even jump it to the NVME ssd’s for 5x faster throughput… (those are still a tad pricey). shuts down and lights off in 6 seconds. pretty amazing what a grand 'n some change will get ya nowadays !
now i kinda want one to replace my older-than-cyberdirt Core2Quad bumping along on win7 with 8 gigs of ddr2 ;p guess its normal to think about replacing your VW bug after working on someone elses Lambo, tho !

i looked at that model (and a few others) - reviews say the cheapass models (like this one) would run HOT, which is why the higher-end ones have built-on heatsinks.
don’t get me wrong, i LOVE that price-point - just think i’ll wait a bit until its available from a few more vendors and the cooler tech stabilizes at or around that cost
(( be different if it were for me, but this is going into a customers residence - so i opt for stability ))
Time for celebration! Microsuck has finally removed its head from its ass after four decades, and has finally gotten a clue, their new CEO Satya Nadella, may be able to fix this abomination of an OS.
its OKAY, bob… you can stop pretending now and admit your undying love for all things Windows ;p kick that crapintosh garbage to the curb and return to efficient and user-friendly GUIworld with the rest of us.
yes, yes - i know you’ll miss your morning frappuchino with the hipster crowd, and the My Little Pony cosplay you’ve been trying to perfect - but Yago can finish it without you…
i’m just glad you finally swallowed the red pill…
GUI’s like Integrated Development Environments (IDE)s for programmers is a sign of weakness. I will forever stand by my unix terminal window, and my VI editor! I do enjoy a morning frappuchino, but i do not like the hipster crowd (they stink…take a shower you environment saving hippies!)
sounds like my broad-based taunting only winged him ;p ah well… enuff for a friday laugh, i suppose !
(( honestly don’t know what a frappuchino even is - just threw it out there cuz it sounded like something a hipster would know… ))
