Picked up a 43" LG 4K TV with IPS panel on sale for USD 299.95 plus tax. Has couple shortcomings but for what it cost it is great as a monitor so far.

I am one but took a day off to cook bacon and eggs. Time off well spent I think... :)

Not saying one really needs one but after I upgraded my PC boot-drive to SSD and seeing the speed increase, my ASUS 2 in 1, my older daughters win-7 DELL laptop and my younger daughters ASUS 2 in 1 got the same treatment.
Just recently installed a Samsung 960EVO m.2 250GB boot/applications drive in the PC. It is about 4 times faster than a SSD! :)

edit: I am running an almost 2 year old PC with MSI M5 Z170 gaming motherboard (has dual m.2 slots) Intel 6700k Sky-lake (running stock clock speed) with liquid cooling (very quiet) 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 memory (16GB would have been plenty) GTX970 founders edition (exhausts the hot air outside of the case) graphics card and a 750W power supply. Overkill maybe but DSS and Registax sure run pretty fast.

An absolute necessity to drive a 4k monitor. You have very good other points.

Might have to agree with that... Sounds too kinky! :hmm: Eye balling the K1/replacement right after the `18 Mustang GT. We can dream... :)

Just went and spent 3 bucks on Amazon to watch "Edge of tomorrow" entertaining for sure! Cheaper than a pound of Bacon but maybe not as tasty...

m.2 of any size for a boot drive with an unlocked Intel processor, no less than 16 GB memory and as much nvme SSD of memory as you think you might use in the future? Plus the mandatory spinners for storage. Just a thought,.

One volunteers their computing resources to a cause. My liquid cooled i7 6700k and the GTX970 went at it over-nite. Interesting to see my next utility bill.

Bought a cheap 43" IPS TV to use as a monitor. Ran Xrite1 pro cal. and now everything is all jacked up...
As far as scooters go. That is what the hog riders call them around here at least.
Don`t want to bark at the wrong tree but after running "folding at home" Bunch of stuff not working right lately, might have to do a clean install!

Yes it does have two slots.
I need to run some benchmarks I guess. The sequential read/write speeds are 3,138 and 1,574 MB/s so it is on par with the spec.

I am considering adding a second m.2 drive to my MOBO and running it in Raid 0. Is anyone doing this? Would it increase performance enough to justify the cost, this thing is already pretty fast but speed is life! :D

Tesla would be nice, way out of my affordability range. As are any nicely equipped Ford F-150 super-crew cab "utes"

Not buying K3, eyeballing an `18 stang GT 5.0 with 10 speed automatic. Black with blackout, no launch/summer only tires package. Sticker-shock is kicking in...

Not on purpose, she just tried to be helpful. Way better cooking than mowing.
