65 year old retired Unix sysadmin here. Want to buy one last computer which won't suck in 2020. I know it isn't the best cpu/gpu and I will have to get more ram and external storage. But that 27" retina is the big draw. I'm old. My eyes are old. Can I do better for $1800?

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.
How long till we get proper human augumentation?

nerve interfaces are what we need, and they only need to go where the missing appendage is
don't know about this extra shit here though

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.
OpenBSD developer just submitted the patch. We did it boys, we are elite now!

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?

>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
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

>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

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.
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?
Why are all Android emulators for PC utter shit?
Use Android x86 like >>61253419 said. You can also run it in a VM just fine.
Utility knife thread
Looking to buy a new knife for work, but can't find any with a safety guard, which i need because its useful for cutting tape on boxes i dont want to risk cutting too deeply. Does /g/ have any recommendations? Also work knife general. Only post daily use working knives, no flashy edgelord stuff
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
