this page is a permalink for the following question:

what PC &/or laptop do you use? and specs?

tldr: nearly maxed out

i am generally against giving out spec and software information as it might entice someone to spend money they probably don't need to spend to do what they want to do, but my desktop is so far down the upgrading rabbit hole that only a stupid person would actually copy my setup:

desktop is a custom built desktop around end of last year (one of the worst times to build a computer since i was born), it has an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, 64GB 3200MHz DDR4 ram from T-Force, a 1tb WD_BLACK SN850 ssd, and one Nvidia RTX 3090 Founders Edition, all thrown on some asus motherboard in a Meshify C case. yeah, its overkill. the motive for the highest end gpu was so DaVinci Resolve would run without frame drops, but that is not the case and it still runs like dog shit, i am looking into alternative software/writing my own program. i paid for this using various life savings and a part time job, and took advantage of a lot of discounts on parts.

laptop is about 2 years old and is a Dell XPS 15. has an 8 core i9-9980HK and a Nvidia GTX 1650M. my stepdad bought me this computer for christmas of 2019, and overkilling the specs i asked for.

and no nothing i have has RGB lighting, i do that in post production.
