CPUs:
No i5 unless discounted
>G4560 - poverty-tier builds
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R3 1300x - Good stop-gap between the 1500x and the 1200, only get a 1400 if you absolutely need multithreading
>R5 1500x - Good but up to 1600 if you can
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage; 1600x if you want higher stock clocks
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming

GPUs:
Coin miners have driven price up and stock down, waiting to buy a GPU might be wiser
>Integrated CPU Graphics - Desktop stuff and very light games
>GTX 1050(Ti) - Lower end budget cards, drop settings on newer games, RX560 beaten by both
>RX570 - [email protected]~hz maxed, running most maxed older games at 100~Hz
>RX580 and GTX1060 6GB - [email protected] maxed, [email protected] at lower settings; RX580 better in newer games
>GTX 1070 - [email protected] /[email protected] at high
>GTX 1080 - [email protected] / [email protected] maxed, [email protected] in a few games; Probably the highest end card you need for 1080p/1440p
>GTX 1080Ti - [email protected] and [email protected] maxed/high in many games
>Vega soon.

RAM:
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM

General:
ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.

>Usage statistics or "Telemetry" is a feature in Firefox that sends Mozilla usage, performance, and responsiveness statistics about user interface features, memory, and hardware configuration. Your IP address is also collected as a part of a standard web log. Usage statistics are transmitted using SSL and help us improve future versions of Firefox. Once sent to Mozilla, usage statistics are aggregated and made available to a broad range of developers, including both Mozilla employees and public contributors. When Telemetry is enabled, certain short-term experiments may collect information about visited sites.

>This feature is turned on by default in Nightly and Beta/Developer Edition builds of Firefox to help those users provide feedback to Mozilla. In the general release version of Firefox, this feature is turned off by default.

I don't get you people, you cry and moan about chrome being a botnet but you have no problems with this and even recommend nightly.

>just turn it off

That just beats the purpose of making a developer build available to the public (getting feedback), it's like joining a private tracker but not seeding, it's not only unethical but illogical.

Nah, once it's around 5% market share that's when they start to get nervous. At that point it'd be as visible as macOS and will create a snowball effect where more and more become aware of Linux.

Does anyone here have any experience on Chromebooks?

I occasionally run Google Docs on around 100~ pages filled with lots of text, tables and pictures. Some times I run into pretty heavy Google Sheets with lots of data and calculations running in them, these struggle on my 1+1 phone, do you think there are Chromebooks out there that can run these OKish?

It's precisely defined in the docs.

Numeric characters include digit characters, and all characters that have the Unicode numeric value property, e.g. U+2155, VULGAR FRACTION ONE FIFTH. Formally, numeric characters are those with the property value Numeric_Type=Digit, Numeric_Type=Decimal or Numeric_Type=Numeric.

The best thing about OOP is that it encourages decent code organization. It's hard enough to get nicely commented code, but with OOP at least you can sort of orient yourself with other people's code.

You might as well be using fucking BASIC with tons of GOTOs when you use OO. There is no concept of code flow or organization with OO.

OO is fucking stupid.

You upgrade from Windows and download a 64bit GNU distro.

Alright /g/, I've always been shilled that graphene is the "miracle" evolutionary step up from silicon when it comes to technology and materials but what makes it better? What kind of advancements could we see with graphene laden GPUs, CPUs, circuits, modern appliances/materials etc. in comparison with silicon, and why haven't we been using it in products yet?

Single atom processing instead of electron flow, also less heat output

Very hard to produce large quantities of sheet graphene, while single crystal silicon can grown with relative ease.

Don't use Duckduckgo. It frequently redirects news sites to Yahoo news, for instance search 'trump jobs' on Duckduckgo and click on the result for, as an example, The Independent. The result will redirect to Yahoo's stolen version of the article.

>MAY HAVE
>THEORY
>SUGGEST

>However, one air expert questioned the theory, saying that the most "plausible" cause of the tragedy remained that of fire in the avionics bay beneath the cockpit, sparked either by a short circuit or explosion. Industry experts also questioned whether it was plausible for a pilot to have taken off with his phone on the dashboard.
