  • +1 for the SSD. I just retired the last of my computers with a HDD boot drive. Quite a decent i7 laptop, but it seems glacial compared to its SSD office companions. For the OP... Indicative ...
  • If it's been 10 years, you might want to consider a new monitor. Also check for appropriate ports on a new graphics card to suit an existing monitor. DP (Display Port) preferred, HDMI is another ...
  • I might lurk over there for a while. ;-)
  • [I've added the specs. to your post for convenience] The computer will certainly do the job, but the highlighted items deserve comment... (1) The 3060 graphics card is overkill, and now, possibly ...
  • If you take the time to read the thread, you will see that I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything, just reporting an idea. You are nothing but a pest.
  • And you do, of course?
  • I know all about that, as I've been doing this for a long time with considerable success. If you read the thread, all I was doing was a "Quick and Dirty" fix of a previously uncalibrated monitor, ...
  • You'll find that if you click on "Remind me in 3 days", you won't see that rubbish again.
  • Replied in A new computer
    Yes, the results are well balanced and very pleasing considering that the computer cost just US$1250, including the RAM upgrade. I was initially scratching my head because the RAM upgrade was only ...
  • Replied in A new computer
    Here is Dell G5 Desktop (i7, SSD, 1650-S, 16 Gb RAM) for comparison. RAM is not Dell compliant and only runs at 2133MHz. 3D Graphics test is quite entertaining, isn't it? Dell G5 Desktop (i7, SSD, ...
  • Replied in A new computer
    Nice looking computer, if it's the same as I find on the Web. Sound like it came with a 1Tb HDD. Assuming that you have a SSD boot drive, I think that I'd prefer the larger HDD to a clutch of used ...
  • It's actually pretty good, and so is the monitor, after calibration adjustment. However, the gamma of the monitor isn't quite right. I have no trouble adjusting my TVs for best results, and friends ...
  • Despite what you say, the TV has been giving satisfaction for years, both for (good quality) broadcasts and when playing various media. It is far from being an "obviously inaccurate source". The ...
  • You don't seem to understand that I wasn't asking for help with this issue. I simply wanted to share a tip.
  • I'm aware of the option for using NVIDIA control panel, but I'd rather not adjust for a questionable monitor when I have plans to use a better monitor in due course. For the moment, the "Quick and ...
  • Do you think that I've been using the same TV for 5 years or so without adjusting it to my liking? In addition to movies, sports etc., I've often shown examples of my photography on the same screen. ...
  • You failed to detect the rather tongue-in-cheek use of the word "Calibration". The monitor concerned is not known for either its general quality or colour accuracy, and using the TV as reference ...
  • Considering that the aperture range is f/2.8 or f/4 up to only f/8, it's not rocket science to decide that f/5.6 might be OK. Small sensor size determines the smallest available aperture. In fact, ...
  • Those are the largest settings at the extremes of focal length. My guess is that the smallest aperture available is f/8 at either end of the focal range. As previously suggested, f/4 to f/5.6 might ...
  • Might be some clues here... https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58182912 Pictures look OK to me, except for the low resolution. Composition could do with some work as well
