  1. I tend to purchase Corsair or Seasonic power supplies...
  2. At home I have four home built computers. One is a low end AMD AM3 running Linux (Zorin-OS) and used as a Samba file server. The other three i7-4770, I5-2600K and AMD FX-8320. At first they all ran Windows 7 Home Premium and the FX-8320 would run easily with the I5-2600K. However after upgrading to Windows 10, initially the FX-8320 was fine but after a few Win10 updates the FX-8320 started to stall and freeze for a couple of seconds, then be ok. I tried a few bios setting tweaks recommend on sites like Tom's Hardware and others. Nothing seem to resolve the issue. I formatted the hard drive and re-installed Windows 10. The problem persisted. So before Christmas I formatted the hard drive and rolled the computer back to Windows 7. I notice a big performance gain running Windows 7 on the AMD FX-8320 over Windows 10. Perhaps the Threadripper has a similar issue with WIndows 10.
  3. I presently have a I7-4770 with 32 GB of DDR3 memory with a Nvidia GTX 1060 video card 6 GB vram. I am debating on upgrading with an AM4 motherboard (prefer gigabyte mobos as all 4 of my computers at home use Gigabyte), 32 GB DDR4 and either Ryzen 7 1700x or Ryzen 7 2700. Does the price difference warrant much of a performance gain between the Ryzen 7 1700x and 2700? The Ryzen 7 1700x is $299 (Canadian dollars - Newegg) and the 2700 $409 / 2700x $449 - again Canadian dollars at Newegg. Cheers & many thanks..
  4. I presently have a I7-4770 with 32 GB of DDR3 memory with a Nvidia GTX 1060 video card 6 GB vram. It replaced a GTX 750 TI with 4GB vram. I know of SLI and mismatched video cards will not work in SLI. However on Sicklefield's youtube channel she has three mismatched Nvidia cards in her computer for DAZ work. I've seen posts by other DAZ and Poser artists who have mismatched Nvidia cards claiming it spends up gpu rendering. Again I'm not talking about SLI or AMDs Crossfire. Will I gain any benefit by adding the GTX 750TI in 3DCoat or Vue? Cheers & Happy New Year...

  7. Wings3D and Milkshape were the first two 3D apps that introduced me to 3D. Milkshape I long ago abandoned as I hate point to point modeling. BUT Wings3D still has a soft spoke in my heart... http://www.wings3d.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=2721

    [Solved] New draw lines shapes

    Wow...that's good to know. Was not aware of this... Many thanks for asking for this function...
  9. Installed Paint.net and Wow...worked... Never knew Photoshop had this TGA problem... I use Photoshop/Lightroom 90% of the time when my computer is powered on... I also have ArtRage 5 & Corel Painter 2019 but did not try them on the TGA. Cheers and many thanks to Andrew & Carlosan...
  10. I also copied the red/green file Carlosan created to my folders "C:\Program Files\3D-Coat-V4.8.25\textures\light" "C:\Program Files\3D-Coat-V4.8.25\textures\dark" And tried both the dark and light themes. Nothing changed. However when I now look into those folders Carlosan's file now looks like this... So what am I doing wrong?
  11. I see that message. It does not assist in telling which mode you are in or which icon is Perspective or Ortho. I can not be more clear. The TWO icons are too similar. My eyesight is not as sharp as it was when I was in my 20s, 30s, 40s or even 50s.
  12. And my Navigation.tga looks like below. The Navigation you reference appears in "C:\Program Files\3D-Coat-V4.8.25\textures\icons" on my computer. Which I've now changed to look below with a P over the perspective icon and an O over the Orthographic icon. And even though the old TGA file has been overwritten, it still displays the original Perspective and Ortho icons in 3DC. Which is very annoying as I have a very hard time telling the difference between the two.
