    Very nice machine I think I'd go one step down on the video card (RTX 4000) and spend the saving on RAM

    That is a Quadro RTX 4000 video card.. Nvidia's newest They are $875 on Amazon .. a $75 markup is reasonable IMO The processor is high, but that charge includes dual fan radiator/water cooling + warrantied overclocking $999 is still pricey though

    You never know, it may be the kids first day on a new job and he didn't know any better That happened to me once. First day on a new job, I hit ALT V and discovered I was running V9 Educational License #12345 I was out of there by first break and did not even go back for the 2 hours pay they owed me.

    @IX Computers This is a local Cali company (San Clemente) They have very good prices and will build overclocked machines with Intel warranties. I have been considering buying my next machine from them. My current machine is a BOXX Apex2 which was expensive but has given me several years of trouble free service. Has anybody hear done business with these guys? Their prices look to be 30-40% lower than BOXX for similar machines and maybe 20% higher than buying the components and building it yourself

    Mastercam 2020 update 1/Vericut 9

    an understatement.... the difference is night and day
  14. I'm guessing that 118 ° is the default drill point setting in your customer's CAD system and they haven't put a second's more thought into it. The big aerospace firms have a spec for undefined drill points, smaller firms, not so much. This can be a real problem if you want to use 135° cobalt or 140° carbide drills Your safest best is to call and ask.
