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 <$30 cooler.
I have a AMD 6300 i need to render from CPU which Ryzen CPU should i buy? i need mobo and ddr4 ram all under 500$
Going to re-post my question from the last thread.
Is this a good motherboard and a good price for this motherboard? I'm hoping to grab an R7 1700 when they are back in stock on amazon and I want to overclock to roughly 3.6-3.7ghz on all cores.
Also, is this good RAM for hitting 3200mhz?
I checked this particular motherboard's QVL on the ASUS website but couldn't find this particular ram kit on it. I found some that had similar product numbers up until a few of the digits but they also had different kit sizes and I am just a little confused about which memory to pick.
My upstairs neighbors are assholes that stomp around in their fucking shoes late into the night and slam shit early in the morning. Is there anyway I can fuck with their wifi so that they might try and go the fuck to bed? I only care about their well-being
Get a raspberry pi and make a jammer
2 minutes on youtube you can find a tutorial.
>Jamming wifi can land you up to 5 years in prison so have fun if you want to risk it just to piss off the normies upstairs
It's your fault completely for agreeing to live in an apartment with people above you, but...
Being in the position that you are, you should go up there and politely tell them about how you're being disturbed by their stomping.

They had it with the buggy codebase.
>btrfs, which was supposed to be Linux's next generation COW filesystem - Linux's answer to zfs. Unfortunately, too much code was written too quickly without focusing on getting the core design correct first, and now it has too many design mistakes baked into the on disk format and an enormous, messy codebase - bigger that xfs. It's taken far too long to stabilize as well - poisoning the well for future filesystems because too many people were burned on btrfs, repeatedly (e.g. Fedora's tried to switch to btrfs multiple times and had to hold off at the last minute, and server vendors who years ago hoped to one day roll out btrfs are now quietly migrating to xfs instead).
What the fuck are they going to use then? ZFS and btrfs are both actively developed by Oracle.

Another reson to switch to Vim
Is this installed by default? I think you need to read a bit closer into the story here. It's these botnet cunts Kite up to their Jewish tricks again (without even googling these motherfuckers I can guarantee you they are kikes) and they tried to pull similar shit in other editors like Atom and Vscode. ST is fine, just need to throw Kite in the ovens.

Why do people sperg out about mpv configuration when the default settings are reasonable and there's no discernible difference between default playback settings and your 200 line autism mpv.conf copy pasted from archwiki and mpv generals?
I've been using mpv since it was forked, and I've never seen anyone "sperg out" about mpv configurations, and didn't even know that you could configure it. Don't know why anyone would bother.
Hello there ;)
I'm gonna defrag my PC that I got mid 2013 for the first time. Are there any better defragging programs out there better than Defraggler? The install gentoo wiki said it wasn't a good one. Also the picture is the results I got from scanning with Defraggler.
