    Post your PSU model. The RTX 2000 series takes huge wattage and under-powered (not defective, just too weak) power supplies are a common problem. Nvidia recommends 650W but that's the bare minimum.

    Is there not a VOD of this up anywhere? It looks like ABC's link is just useless commentary and google also returns a bunch of videos of talking heads.

    My process: Get homebrew first (via Safari before anything else) and use brew cask to easily install standard mac apps like browsers, terminals, editors, and all the other must-haves from the CLI. When I'm already using it on a previous machine, I run brew cask list on the old box to get an app list and just reinstall these to get up and running super fast.

    Here's a selection of important ones for my current setup:

    $ brew cask list
    bartender # clean up the menu bar icons
    bitwarden # password manager
    chromium # less evil chrome
    firefox # primary browser
    font-fantasque-sans-mono # programming font
    font-inconsolata # terminal font
    iterm2 # terminal
    karabiner-elements # complicated keyboard remapping
    krita # excellent free image editor
    spectacle # keyboard shortcuts for moving windows around

    Really hard to respond constructively to this without hearing why you didn't like the things you didn't like or what you're actually using these for--language, workflow, etc.
