  • Since M2 uses the PCI interface instead of SATA it is a lot faster. Also an M2 SSD requires no cables, so you save the space and hassle of connecting a power and a data cable. If you are using a ...
  • Replied in Case for P1000
    I've been using the Amazon case for some time now - it's terrific. By carefully arranging things I can get it to hold the camera, 4 extra batteries, the battery charger, an extra SD card,  and a ...
  • Samsung 970 EVO 250GB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD (MZ-V7E250BW) ARCTIC Freezer 33 – Semi Passive Tower CPU Cooler for Intel 115X/2011-3 and AMD AM4 with 120 mm PWM Fan, Silent high Performance Cooler ...
  • Well, if my new build runs for another 5 years by then i may not care about a subsequent upgrade. But thanks for the info.
  • I used the commands slmgr /dlv and slmgr /dli to show the status of my current Windows license. Both of them came back saying mine is Retail. So it looks like that is one issue I won't have to ...
  • That's a very good analysis - thanks. I did find a nice 450 watt PS that was an Amazon Choice, but it looked like it lacked sufficient modular cables for my full configuration. So I think I'll ...
  • Actually I'm getting all the parts from Amazon. The 2 dimms are sold as a pair so I assume they will work OK together. The info at Amazon says they can be easily over clocked - which I don't plan ...
  • That's very helpful info sygnus - thanks. I think I'll try the build without the video card and see how it works. If necessary I can always pull my current GTX750 and install it in the new build.
  • AJ -I understand but what I didn't say was I have 2 HDD's, an SSD, an optical drive, and  a multi-function card reader that I will transfer from my current system to the new one. So I figured the ...
  • My boot drive is only OS and apps and I expect it will never need more than 100GB total. Given that I'm more concerned about read speed tan write speed. I'd have got a 128GB if one was available. H ...
  • Replied in Why Not AMD?
    I've never had anything other than Intel CPUs and I don't want to start now. But your points are well taken, My heavy CPU usage is video editing and 3D part design for 3D printing. I don't do much ...
  • That's interesting. I have 2 monitors, one of which is 4K (Primary) and on that is 1980 x 1200 (Secondary). I'm not clear on whether or not the Intel graphics built in to the CPU can support both ...
  • Yup -  I do expect some degree of hassle from MS. My Win10 was a free upgrade from Win7, so that should count for something (I hope.) I hadn't thought about using the Chat Window - that makes ...
  • I hear you, but but I wanted a fanless card and my current GT-750 works fine for my needs - I find that 30fps on my 27" 4K monitor works just fine.
  • Thanks for pointing that out - you are correct. So I switched to 2 Patriot Viper Elite Series DDR4 8GB sticks.
  • Motherboard specs are for DDR4 SIMMs.  Is there something else to heck for?
  • Created discussion thread New build - comments?
    Time to replace my 5 year old system - I'm running Win10/64 current version. Here's my current parts list: Crucial 8GB Single DDR4 2666 MT/s (PC4-21300) SR x8 SODIMM 260-Pin Memory <== 2 of these A ...
  • All that's needed is a link to an album that is marked Shareable and anyone can see it. Here's the link to my test album: Test Album It's 1 short video and 1 image only - random choices that I ...
  • Yup - Google was/is my second choice if Irista doesn't pan out. My videos currently are 1080P - but my P1000 can shoot 4K - and I do have a 4K TV. So far I've not done much with 4K because editing ...
  • Thanks - I used to do that, but even with the help of some free web page software (JAlbum) it was just too much hassle to create the albums. Plus, at that time anyway, JAlbum didn't handle videos. ...
