Need New computer advice.on: December 30, 2020 at 9:02 am
I had to replace my computer just a few weeks ago. I suspect I over bought but the computer flies though tasks so no regrets. I purchased the parts from Canada computers and assembled it myself. The cost would be about $1800 CDN. The cost cold be reduced somewhat (~$200-$350) with a different CPU, graphics card, HDD selection and Windows Home. I think it would impact performance minimally. My choices were driven by need, timing and availability.
Parts list if it helps:
CPU: Intel Core i5-10600K 4.1 GHz 6-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition 42 CFM CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Asus PRIME H470M-PLUS/CSM Micro ATX LGA1200 Motherboard

Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB SC Video Card
Case: be quiet! Pure Base 600 ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: SeaSonic FOCUS Gold 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular

I lost my sister to brain cancer in early 2017. She was single so the task of clearing out her house fell to the family. I had the same realization you speak of regarding all the stuff we accumulate along the way. I’m (very) gradually getting rid of my own excess stuff now. You seem to be doing better at that! I’m trying to be more conscious of what I buy and whether I really need it. I find it easier to not bring new stuff in than move stuff out. A side benefit is less garbage going into the environment.

Hopefully I can catch up on some reading. I have some photography related books in the pile as well. I already worked from home so nothing is changing there so far.

In some ways I’ll limited. My photo club meetings and outings are cancelled. Fortunately for me I’m just a hobbyist. I do feel for those whose livelihood is impacted. Like heading out with a single prime lens for a day of shooting, I’ll just have to get creative.

I think the only thing they missed on the rear screen is the ability to rotate it. If you could flip it out like it currently seems to do but then rotate the screen 180 degrees that would be great. I have a Sony A7II and wish I could do that. My a77II has a rear screen that can be turned inwards and that is how I normally keep it. People need to wait to see the X-Pro 3 in operation before writing it off. I think the look of the rear screen when it’s closed is brilliant with the small display.
