>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage; 1600x if you want higher stock clocks

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.
Is /g/ gunna get the iPhone Pro?
I've made my first digital painting (pic related) and was happy to print it to a internet house with a domestic printer.
I was pretty dissapointed with the result, dunno why but the colors came washed out and with a really higher contrasts, some of my colors came pretty black.
I know it must be my fault for not preparing my picture to be printer friendly (cyan, yellow, magenta, something like that).
What printer should I buy that wont let me down.
Are laser printers better?
I bought an iphone 7 today.
Did I make a wise decision? I just realized the 7s is coming out soon...
I think my next phone will be iPhone.
Because you don't have to deal with shit like pic related. Also your phone doesn't come with bloat and actually gets updates.
What would you say is the "best bang for buck" PC right now?
Pic related is what I think.
Planned heavy overclocking
Is there a purpose for this form factor nowadays?
Obviously a decade ago it made sense when you wanted computing power and didn't want a huge machine, but seeing as what a phone / tablet can do (especially if you have external peripherals) and how small / light laptops are, is there a need for this?
Is the GPD pocket / Vaio P nostalgia just people wanting to ironic retro devices or is this an actual space that needs filling
I'm never using SJWfox ever again. Back to chrome where the red pilled white supremacists are.
Interesting thing I just found but can't figure out. If you look at OkCupid's page source (view-source:https://www.okcupid.com/home), the top has an ASCII picture of what looks to be a Macintosh, with:
WOULD YOU LIKE TO PLAY A GAME?
596d 6c30 4c6d 7835
4c7a 4a32 6258 5a45
written on the screen. I can't figure out what the numbers are, they're like a hash but none that I can find, except for a Bitcoin address - https://blockchain.info/address/596d6c304c6d78354c7a4a3262585a455a6a514b
Anyone else have any clue what this is?
Is this the future of the linux desktop?
I get the battery, but is the rest just the internals of a card reader with storage to save every card? What are the wires on the top left that don't lead to the battery?

Shit went downhill fast with the Zero Esc-.. Mary Sue retcon anime.
Then the Persona 5 style Art Shift.
They should abandon that shit, go back to one bear only.
>companies still can't figure out how to fix this halo effect on 2.5D screens
Even the most expensive screen protector I bought still did this shit, I really like my phone's 2.5D gorilla glass but this shit is so irritating.

Get good nigger.
There is too much money being made by retarded cucks on the Internet. Buzzfeed, facebook, reddit, YouTube, this site, ect. Fuck all these retarded niggers. We need to basically burn internet ad culture to the ground and put ~80% of internet based businesses out of business leaving only the things people want to pay for and random people's passion projects.
Adnauseam is the best way to do this. I've been using it for a few month and according to it's builtin graphs I've costed advertisers nearly $4000.
Just think about how much this could disrupt the ad industry if it had widespread adoption.
>bought a $100 3tb HDD from WD
>they dont even include a SATA cable
...defend this, /g/
Good goy! Pay for the WD excluive SATA Cable for $30 each, if you buy 2 we'll give you an extra one 50% off!
I really need it as a bedside word processor\youtube watchers!
Tell me why I should buy a Chromebook!
Or even why I shouldn't?
