    I want to build you a computer

    looks good. the 8500's a nice cpu. too bad the 9-series doesn't have an x500 version out yet. another note - the PSU you picked is the g3, which costs a tiny bit more in exchange for having a quieter eco fan mode via a selector switch, and being ~10mm shorter to allow for more room in mini-ITX cases. if you can get the G2 for less money, it's not a downgrade IMO. also thanks for the props everyone! it's always fun to get builds. i don't make much money off of them when fees and materials are accounted for but i certainly enjoy the work. plus how else am i going to be able to spend other people's money to play with new hardware? =)

    I want to build you a computer

    you can get a 500gb 860 evo for 82$ on newegg right now. don't use a platter drive for anything under a terabyte. you can run windows 10 indefinitely without a key legally. it updates and everything, and just doesn't let you change some basic settings. use the money you're saving from not buying that and get a better processor. it'd be better to buy a single 8gb stick of RAM vs. 2x 4gb. that mobo's only got two slots so upgrading would require you to replace everything vs. just throwing another stick in there. in my personal opinion, low-cost gigabyte motherboards aren't as good. msi's got some nice budget boards and so does asrock. i'd go with their options in the sub-60$ space before gigabyte. their low-end caps are really bad. i like the pick for PSU. it's too much wattage but it's a great long-term pick that'll last forever. lastly, the 1050 Ti WILL be CPU-bottlenecked. i approve of the 8-series Intel CPUs across the board, but you're definitely going to be hurting with the -8100, especially since games played on lower-end computers tend to be MMOs which also tend to be CPU hogs. just keep that in mind. stock cooling is fine for an -8100. if you desperately want an aftermarket cooler there's numerous flatpack sub-30$ options that are good.

    i don't use third-party antivirus on my home machines, so i don't really have a great recommendation there unfortunately.

    Inspirational OC ReMixers. Ego food donations.

    you'd think i'd take my own advice once and a while! =) in terms of musical inspiration, @StarBLaSt is an artist that is incredibly inspirational to me. tracks like "airships make me happy" and "pillar of salt" just blow my mind at their creativity and uniqueness.

    Chrono Cross Remix Project - submitted!

    arcadia legends was trying to get out in time for their 15y anniversary. since we're not aiming for a specific date, i agreed to let arcadia come out first.

    Chrono Cross Remix Project - submitted!

    there's a lot of planning and organization behind the scenes that needs to happen, and it's performed by volunteers who have all sort of personal stuff that might occupy their time. in the same way that it might take someone months to finish a 4-minute track, organizing a release can take a lot of time too!

    I want to build you a computer

    thanks nabeel =D for those wondering, while i forgot to take pics of his build, we did a pretty fun build featuring an i7-8700k, 2tb of M.2 SSDs, and 64gb of 3466mhz DDR4. i did some overclocking on it and a bit of window dressing with RGB stuff, and apparently it's working pretty well. in particular it sounds like the crazy speed of the 960 EVOs is allowing for some really crazy load times. i've also done a few other builds since this one - one for a guy on the boards, and two for family members (embedded machines for an office). i have two more in planning for the black friday / christmas rush as well =)

    Do You Still ReMix — Why Or Why Not?

    this is a good way to say it. i got a few degrees in music that essentially nailed the coffin on ever doing it professionally simply because i hated it so much by the time i was done - the in-culture, the requirement to network constantly, and the number of good gigs going to someone because they knew a guy that knew a guy instead of going to the best choice (not that i ever was that) really was a turn-off. the actual music was fun, but doing it for a job was maybe 10% of that. then we had some kids, and my hours changed, and my priorities changed. success for me was providing for my family no matter the circumstances, and finding a way to pursue more than just one interest both from a financial and time standpoint. i think i've accomplished that pretty comfortably. it looks way different than what i thought it'd be in my early 20s, and that's probably for the better now that i know more about who i am and who i am not.

    it's been a while! at this time we're roughly next in line. i have more information that i'm waiting to be finalized before i say a specific date, but it should be very soon.

    during boot, the computer attempts to initialize all the drives. sounds like there's something that's causing that service to choke during boot that windows itself is fine with. replace the drive immediately. don't use it unless you absolutely have to.

    @misty78, you'd be surprised what you could do with a much smaller budget, i think. depends on what you're doing though.
