4K 60+ FPS gaming here I come!
I'd save some money by getting a smaller M.2 drive (the 250 is 110) and use that money to buy the faster i7-8700k and complement it with faster memory. 500gb is not very big so I assume you are already using your older drives.

If you're going to be video editing, I can see the case for an i7, but all the reviews I remember reading showed no difference between an i7 and an i5 for gaming.
When you're spending this much money you want to get the most future proofness you can afford.
He has already specced an i7, why not get the fastest one they make for $50 bucks more. It will easily last 5 years and at $10 dollars a year it's practically free. Plus it's the k version which might extend its life even more if he won the silicon lottery.

+ Core i7-8700 - Precisely. I'm not upgrading to be at the curve. I want to be beyond the curve by at least a year or more.

+ Noctua - NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler - I bought it now to plan for later. It is rated as one of the best coolers for my budget and fits the new case. I don't know if Noctua intends to stop producing these coolers, but I wanted to be "K" ready for when I decide to go that route.

+ Vulcan 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory - I've always seen RAM as part of a greater whole. In a full system upgrade it's easier to go with "cheaper" RAM now and then upgrade to faster later.

+ Samsung - 970 Evo 500GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive - I do way more than gaming. 500 GB is more than enough for my needs. 250 GB wouldn't have worked.

I agree with going for the K variant, no reason to have the Noctua cooler if you're not going to overclock. An Extra ~$60 (including the faster memory) isn't much when you're already spending over $2k. I'd stay with the 500gb drive though, you'll probably want your games on there and a 256 drive will fill up fast. Looks like a sweet setup any way you cut it though
Hence my 500gb is not very big blurp. Install windows, program hogs like Adobe InDesign and the 4-6 games that benefit from M.2 NVME speeds on the 250, everything else goes on 2.5" sata ssd's and 7.2k spinners.

I have it all figured out, but I thank you both for the recommendations.

Free speech doesn't mean there aren't repercussions to being a closeminded dirtbag.

The freedom of speech is supposed to protect speech that is deemed offensive or unpopular. It is alive and well in specific segments of society (e.g., protesting, religious, and so forth). Otherwise, every offensive word or phrase would be met with the harshest of responses. However, it is not a law, but a principle. And nowhere was that more clear than in this case. The principles of "freedom of speech" remain relative in the business world and open to varying degrees of application.

The big takeaway from that video for me: Jack Nicholson has been crazy for decades. No wonder it worked into so many of his performances for so long.

Still, as good as Nicholson's performance was in that door scene, it's really all about Shelly Duvall. Holy shit her facial expressions and her scream... bloodcurdling. It's been a decade or so since I've seen The Shining, guess I need to rewatch it at some point.

Except you'll watch it through the spaces in your hands over your eyes! At least that's how I watch it.

It says 88. The Internet was basically just text at that point. I was still using BBSs up through about 94-95 at least. Online shopping was basically the same as ordering from a catalog.

Wow. My mistake on that. That was some full-blown something on my part. LOL!

Trust me Stephen, your wife REALLY doesn't want to see this film. Saw it yesterday with my son.

Out, out, brief film!
The movie's but a walking shadow, a poor plot
That struts and frets its hours upon the cinema
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

America is so backward in sports. We use whistling to celebrate our teams' achievements, while the world uses whistling to boo an opposing team. I first saw this during a World Cup Soccer match. I had to ask, "Why are they celebrating the other team's goal?"

On a side note, I completed the Summerset leveling guide for Zygor's Guides. Latest posted on https://github.com/Hydra9268/ZGESO . They dropped support for the game, and then later told all their subs we're not making a Summerset guide. So I did it! Took six weeks, but I think the guide will help a lot of ESO players.

R.I.P.: Steve Ditko, co-creator of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, dies at 90. My all-time favorite comic book artist.

Yeah, his work was excellent. R.I.P. to be sure!

My favorite is Todd McFarlane (close second is Jim Lee via his work on The Uncanny X-Men). I think McFarlane's work more than any other changed the basic look of comic books. Technically his anatomy was wrong, but it worked for Spider-Man. The way in which he drew - so full of details - was fantastic! Up until McFarlane, there were two ways for the artists on the main "Spider-Man" titles to draw Spider-Man. Either like Steve Ditko (R.I.P.) or like John Romita and really, "like Romita" was the only true option in the late 1980s. Then editor of Marvel Comics, Tom Defalco famously said to McFarlane, "I don't like that spaghetti webbing." I loved the spaghetti webbing! As a kid and early teen, I had a mailbox subscription to Spider-Man and so each time I got a comic I was blown away by each panel of McFarlane's Spider-Man. It was so much fun to look at. The way his Spider-Man inhumanly dodged bullets while flinging spaghetti webbing at the bad guys. Awesome!

I never understood the irony of stating "the statements they made do not reflect the views of ArenaNet at all," and then they fire the people who made the statements. It wasn't like they made them during a press briefing or on stage during a product launch. They did it off company time.

There's a line from Star Trek The Next Generation episode "The Drumhead" that I'm always reminded of in situations like this. "With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured...the first thought forbidden...the first freedom denied chains us all, irrevocably."
