Cross post: Looking for a new PC desktop. PC is non negotiable based on the programs I use for work...so don't recommend an iMac. :) I'm hoping to get an i7 2600k, 8GB of ram minimum, decent fan. Also, no time or patience to build myself. Leaning towards Cyber Power despite some shaky reviews

Thanks Lauren for your complement and your very helpful tips about PC Perspective and Ryan's PC Show. Thanks to you, I'm following PC Pers in my iGoogle RSS profile. I watch the ratings for local PC sales and repair shops with Angie's List and with Consumer Checklist. We also check the ratings for all kinds of service areas. We have not gone wrong yet by finding shops with quite a few to a very large number of excellent ratings in whatever type of help we need whether it be with carpenters, plumbing, basement drain work, electrical, or computers or yard work or automobiles.

Basically what high ratings tell me is that the professionals involved are very helpful experts who communicate well with and care for their customers. With computer shops, I've found many interested, attentive enthusiasts work there and enjoy sharing and giving advice. I give them our business. I have usually bought a good machine after a lot of reading and then beefed it up. That means adding a good video card, additional Ram, and a much higher wattage power supply. Most computers when manufactured simply can't handle many extra watts at all with their under configured power supplies. So, if you feel comfortable with doing the installs of the software and making sure what you buy will all work together, I would go the build route.

They are going to have to guarantee you that it is going to work and provide you with some hardware technical assistance. I feel comfortable with the software side of things, but for me personally I am going to want to know that the motherboard, the 2600k i7 processor, and the solid state drive will be working together correctly. If there are problems, I am going to have to go to each manufacturer separately and that might be a time pain. You are too of course. However, by doing things a little bit more by myself all the time, both you and I are going to get more and more comfortable with the technology and build more and more expertise and awareness of what can be done. Neither of us are afraid to ask questions and spend time tweaking are we? If it's not working real well by that 30 day return period expiration, back it all goes. Now it's time to evaluate and make choices among some very good repair and build shops in Hawaii. I have always found that people will help me if I listen to them well, am respectful and friendly, and am not a miser. Enthusiasm and being really interested in what we're doing goes a long way too. I think it's good that you are seeking a proposal from someone too because it is good to have a standard machine build in the background.

Me, I want to reduce that rendering time. It has been a time killer for me. That's why I was so excited to happen across the owner and enthusiast from Chip Heads. I have found though from my experience that I got good advice from them about when and when not to upgrade a computer or repair it. My experiences matched the ratings I found for the company for knowledge, quality, and willingness to help folks. Then he knew about this Intel mother board that would take advantage of the very special video and media capabilities of this i7 2600k Intel processor. I did not know that in much depth at all. It sent me in an entirely new direction for solving a long-term problem I had been having. He also said that the processor would be doing most of the work. It is a great deal of fun to be exploring topics like what will make my amateur video work move along much faster within a reasonable budget. He said I was getting about 85% of what a machine double or more would give me.

This has been me just kind of brainstorming about how to get by a nagging family video editing issue while thinking of you and your needs too. What strikes me most here in the end is that I am not faced with the time constraints you are and can take my time. I am not facing a large project with deadlines, but then again, I've done almost all my work, work on my home computers and they really worked better than those at work. I was always able to buy a very good machine for myself here at home and it worked wonderfully for all my work problems. Hope this helps you some. I believe you will find the right people to do the build for you.

Aloha La Kuokoa! Here's a good way to celebrate. :) Go to awaiaulu.org to sign-up and keep our nupepa typescripting from being outsourced to Cambodia. Such a good idea and easy way to contribute to the preservation of our Hawaiian language newspapers!

*You don't need to speak or read Hawaiian language to contribute.

I guess some markets are recession proof? Wow.
--
At a “nice” $3,500-per-month loft in the Mission, “80 people showed up for the open house,” said Lamas, 23, who recently began working at a tech company in SoMa. “And the landlord said to me that he’d gotten 250 applications.”

The cost of applying was $40, so if the landlord wasn’t exaggerating, he grossed $10,000 in application fees.

Yeah and if oh well nobody qualifies you can make more money every month taking applications, cause the market is that tight.

Great/atypical record on Embryo. Googie's vocals took awhile to get in to but eventually grew on me.

Wow, I'll have to track down the Chris Hills. From the list I only have the Tonto's Expanding Head Band. Thanks for the info!
