Fair enough. Thanks.

I'm not looking for something fancy. Just want a desk with adjustable height that is comfy for sitting at and has enough room for my PC and two 1440p monitors.

Preferably under 500 CAD, or at the very least under 1000 CAD.

Just get a fucking wooden door and put legs/file cabinets underneath the right and left side.

Best desk money can buy for a fraction of the price of the shit stores sell.

Got a few issues I'm stuck on at work, wondering if I could get some advice about any and all of the them.

I'm trying to setup Tiltbrush to run in MR mode. I have the green screen setup, lighting is good, keying works fine. But I'm using a BLackmagic Shuttle Intensity along with a sony handycam for the video layer and it's been a nightmare getting either to play nice with each other or the MR configurators I've been trying to map the room with.

One configurator shows the Shuttle USB 3.0 but the camera isn't feeding an image I can see. It suggests Xsplit as an alternative but I can't get a feed out of that either. Yet when I go into blackmagic's media display, it shows the camera's feed fine. I'm matching the fps and resolution on every level so that isn't the issue.

I dunno, specific advice about any of this hardware or general advice for setting up MR would be appreciated. Anything ya got.

I also have a gopro hero 5 to use but that seems less suited to the purpose and have had similar luck getting it to work consistently.

I'm using a VIVE in this case btw.

If you want help:
>Assemble your parts list

>State the budget for your build (and country if not the USA)
>List games/software you use often, as well as your monitor resolution + refresh rate
>Clarify your goal for build improvements: lower price or improved specs?
How to assemble a PC, select components & more (kind of outdated)
https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php?title=Build_a_PC

CPUs:
No i5 unless discounted
>G4560/G4600 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R5 1400 - Cheapest quad core you can get (Ryzen 3 soon)
>R5 1500x - Good but up to 1600 if you can
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage; 1600x if you want higher stock clocks
>i7 7700k - 144hz only
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming

GPUs:
Coin miners have driven price up and stock down, waiting to buy a GPU might be wiser
>Integrated CPU Graphics - Desktop stuff and very light games
>GTX 1050(Ti) - Lower end budget cards, drop settings on newer games, RX560 beaten by both
>RX570 - [email protected]~hz maxed, running most maxed older games at 100~Hz
>RX580 and GTX1060 6GB - [email protected] maxed, [email protected] at lower settings; RX580 better in newer games
>GTX 1070 - [email protected] /[email protected] at high
>GTX 1080 - [email protected] / [email protected] maxed, [email protected] in a few games; Probably the highest end card you need for 1080p/1440p
>GTX 1080Ti - [email protected] and [email protected] maxed/high in many games

RAM:
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM

General:
ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.

What do you mean?

I just wanted to thank whoever wrote up the OP. it's really helpful and informative.
One thing I noticed was that it claims ryzen CPUs benefit greatly from higher ram speeds. Is that in regards to gaming, or other more work oriented applications?
Thanks

This one has a back bit for cutting saram, which is pretty handy. Honestly the knife i have does everything i need, but i hate the color, and don't mind shelling out some money for a nice looking one since ill be using it every day. Sheathe recommendations also welcomed

Raspbian is what software for the Pi will expect you to have, plus it's designed specifically for the Pi's hardware. Debian or Ubuntu Server will work too.

>>61253015
I like NixOS because you can configure the system before you actually run it.
