    You do need to bear in mind that we do not generally allow GoFundMe and the like appeals on the forum - we made exceptions for Ikyoto and Jen but wouldn't normally.

    Understood.

    What I like about having a PC built for me is I can specify just what I need,  don't get any fancy stuff, or bloat software I don't need. and as I already have monitors key boards, mouses etc, I just need the CPU box built. It can work out a lot cheaper than buying of the shelf.    Of course the company I use won't be any good to you, but there must be similar places around in the US.  I know Jeff (Jaderail) had his last system built/ He had it built twice in fact as the first one was on a cargo plane that crashed.  Frank (Mod team) also has his built for him.

    ..I built the system I am currently working on.  Took about 18 months to learn all the ins & outs of PC design and assembly in my spare time   Fortunately at the time I was still working time and, while not having a great income, still was earning enough to put money away.  Being retired now and on a very tight fixed income which barely makes it month to month, that is no longer the case.

    The nice thing about being able to BIY is I can use slightly older components to save money over state of the art stuff. Those Sandy Bridge 8 core Xeons I am looking at go for about 250$ each today, basically 2 of them would cost me about as much as a present day 6 core i7.  For rendering purposes, there is little difference between DDR3 and DDR4 and I can get an MB that supports quad channel DDR3.

    Yeah I've become pretty soured on GPU rendering because of the cost for high memory cards to handle the scenes I create, driver issues, and what I refer to as the "GPU arms race" (later this year the new Volta architecture cards are to be released).

    ...snow has been falling here for about the last hour but the real issue is the threat of 3/4" of ice predicted later on.  So far the radar map still just shows snow and as long as the temps stay cold enough we might luck out at least for today. I need to go somewhere a bit later and don't want to find the sidewalks and streets turned into a skating rink when I leave for home this evening.

    I had mine built by CyberPowerPC in California and shipped to me on the east coast. I've had it about a year and have been happy with it so far. Myy only regret was that I didn't get more GPU ram (I have a 4gb GTX 970).

    The Stop Snowing on my Positive Attitude Complaint Thread

  • LeatherGryphonLeatherGryphon Posts: 6,556
    edited January 2017

    Complaint:  I don't like driving in snow and we've been having a lot lately.  During winter I try to limit myself to one trip a week weather permitting.  It's an advantage of being retired.   This past week I'd already used up my one day a week trip, then I had an emergency dentist appointment a couple days later, then unfortunately, I volunteered to take a relative to have some outpatient surgery, 30 miles away, early in the morning tomorrow and I have to stick around for about 4 hours to drive him home again.  So that pretty much shoots the day tomorrow sad

    But I need to do it, so today about 11:00 AM I went out and dug my car for the third time this week to be ready for tomorrow morning.  Then my landlord came about noon and plowed the driveway of the 5 inches of snow we had yesterday.  Then right after he left, it started snowing again, another 2 inches. frown  Finally about 6:00 tonight it stopped.  I bundled up and trudged out to the car to sweep it off yet again.  I'm hoping it doesn't snow anymore tonight.  My heart does a Cha-cha just sweeping off my little porch.  One of these days the other tennant in the house is going to come home and find a tubby lump lying frozen with a broom in its hand next to a half cleaned off car. no
