  1. Looks good to. Have to start somewhere. I have given away/sold/thrown out all my old stuff...hindsight.
  2. Good here so far. I was off last week, but working now primarily from home (expecting a day a week ish going in to work). - marvel movies with the kids - some brake pads arrived to install on my 4 wheeler - work - bee swarm simulator with the kids (roblox) - walks with the dog and family - washed the cars because it was beautiful out ...and then it snowed overnight How are things with you?
  3. Oh no, or yes...excited and scared. I really don’t need anything...or do I?
  4. Ugh. $1k for everything means compromises for sure. I think you are going to find very quickly that looking at the used market for some of the purchases is going to be the best way to go. Get a basic keyboard and mouse new (<$50), a used monitor (21.5-23”) most likely, something like a b450 motherboard and 2600 cpu, and the best used graphics card with the remaining budget. $1k for the tower is t bad, but all in is hard. My main consideration would be making it good enough for now, but having a solid mob, power supply, and a case he is happy with....the rest is easy to upgrade over time.
  5. Both look like solid options as well. Your call really. The pixio is nice spec wise.
  6. Yes please. They are huge as well. And one just brought me to an add page that I had to X out in order to display this page.
  7. Add on to my last. Haven’t looked into monitors in a while, but this monitor ticks A LOT of positives for the price of $330. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07V39QHMY?tag=pcp0f-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1
  8. Unfortunately 27” are getting harder to find due to 31-32”. I prefer 27” 1440 still as well. Do you have any specific requirements/wants (ips/adaptive sync/high refresh rate/curved vs flat/etc)?
  9. Haha. Well played Mr.MattyV. thanks for the giveaway! Good luck everyone.
  10. Apparently evga and superflower have cut ties for power supplies (G2,G3,P2,T2), and superflower is going to start selling direct the public. Always nice to have more solid options. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/super-flower-entering-north-america-pc-power-supply-market
  11. Haha. Nice. I feel like some of the settings must not be defaulting the same as that is a bit too much of an improvement.unfortunately vantage is now unsupported and I didn’t have the newer version installed to test before. Oh well.
  12. Found and installed the discontinued 3dmarkvantage, since I just dropped the gt 1030 in. Left all at stock settings, so I hope they are the same...unfortunately I didn’t record earlier. Cpu is within margin of error at 16543 GPU now 16822. P16752 total score.
  13. Update 3: All is running well as per update 2. Great little low power gpu for older/“esports” games at 1080p. With my tweaks it is never hitting any of its limits (power/voltage/temp), so there would be room for more, but it is fine for me. As for moving forward I plan to pretty much run it as is, but if I get in a mood to play with it more I may continue to refine and see if I can get a similar freq out of it at even lower voltage. I may also try a repaste at some point just out of curiosity. Temp is fine at max 65 in a relatively poorly ventilated case with a passive gpu, but lower is better.
