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.
Does the number of PCIe lanes you have SLI going through (8x or 16x sli) matter? Documentation says that 8x is half the performance of 16x, so when I buy any CPU that isn't an i9 with 40+ PCIe lanes am I losing a lot of performance?
I want to buy Ryzen, an M.2 and do SLI in the future. But Ryzen only has 24 PCIe lanes which would mean:
8x - GPU #1
8x - GPU #2
4x - M.2
Total: 20 with 4 to spare for some other card
Which is great, unless 8x sli is horribly inefficient compared to 16x.

Do you agree with that, devs of /g/ ?
How do you expect to ever have a career/love interest/real friends without social media profiles?
You need to know people and they need to know you are good and that information doesn't travel trough social media anyways.
You can stay in contact with real friends without social media
Unless you live in the outback, there are a lot of other candidates competing for the same jobs and girls are you, and the recruiters/girls would rather call the people they can have an idea about by going through their profiles than a "mysterious" psycho.

Does a blacked out gayming chair still look ridiculous?
I'm going to travel to another country where I'll be moving around for a couple years, so the only computer I'll have will be a laptop with no external drives (they'd get checked a lot at borders so I'd rather carry as little as possible).
Now I need to upload a few hundred gigs (up to 1 TB) of files in encrypted containers so if I want to access something I can download it there instead of carrying it with me.
What's a free service (I'm really tight on money and can't afford payment plans) that I can use to upload said files and not have them being deleted or banned for inactivity or for having multiple accounts?
I don't want MEGA because I'll always be afraid it will go the way of Megaupload, and don't want OneDrive because I've already been banned there for inactivity.
Thank you in advance.
Not an option for me.
Also I don't want to worry about it working and whatnot. I just need my files available online for those semi-rare moments where I'll need them, so no rented servers either.
One of the greatest GNU/Linux distro's out there, although it's very unpopular. I mean, it doesn't include systemd, but instead uses runit. It's package manager is decent. It's a pretty minimal install. I see no flaws. What do you think, /g/?
They're going full botnet.
Why are you using software that hates straight white men?

Do you still apply the stickers that come with your cpu/gpu to your case?
It's seriously one of the best distributions out there. If you think otherwise, show me. Tell me one flaw that openSUSE and its derivatives have. I'll wait.
