    Introduce Yourself.

    I don't do any rendering work so that's not an issue. If I continue doing graphic design work eventually I'm going to have to upgrade the GPU, and if I do that I might as well build a whole new system. I'm working full time now so maybe when tax time comes I could afford it.

    Mouse Recommendations

    My favorite mouse is the Logitech Performance MX. Best mouse I've ever owned. I also use a Logitech M705 for when I'm reclining and doing things on the TV.

    Windows 10 changed my display??

    I came home from work and discovered that my computer had been updated to Windows 10. Pretty underhanded move on Microshaft's part, but I thought I'd give it a whirl. Everything seems fine except now when I open Photoshop everything is so tiny I can't really work in the program anymore. Attached...
