Forth is a great programming language you should give it a try.
If you want help:
>Assemble your parts list
>State the budget for your build (and country if not the USA)
>List games/software you use often, as well as your monitor resolution + refresh rate
>Clarify your goal for build improvements: lower price or improved specs?

No i5 unless discounted
>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
>i7 7700k - Only for 144hz
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming
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
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM
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.
Router question. I couldn't find anything in the wiki regarding this.
Can anyone recommend an 8 (at least) port gigabit or higher router that can be flashed with Tomato or other custom firmware?

would you get one if you were offered one?
So I've searched through Google and it seems like the only thing I can find are people having the opposite problem I am. I'm putting my first build together and I've run into a bit of an issue with power cords. Pic related is the CPU power porn on my Motherboard (MSI Z270 Gaming M3). It's an alternating arch/square pattern for the pins. Yet on my PSU (EVGA 650 G2), I have a 4+4 connector where one side is the same arch/square pattern but the other is all arches. It also came with what they are calling an 8-pin+8(4+4)-pin CPU adapter on which both sets of connectors have the alternating arch/square pattern but the other end of the cable is some sort of weird connector with clips on the sides that doesn't actually attach to anything else.
I'd really like to not mess up my first build (not to mention all the money I spent) and would appreciate any guidance I can get.
youre in luck, i had the exact same problem myself.
did some sleuthing and it turns out that the all-arch shaped connector on the second set of 4 is designed to fit into different arrangements of pins. arches fit into squares, but squares do not fit into arches. therefore the second set is all arches so that it can fit freely into either hole.
i dont have the link handy, but i found a site that detailed the pins and voltage/power for all of the pins, and the layouts and the design specifications for them. so youll just have to take my word for it.
the 4+4 goes into the 8pin cpu, youre safe.
might just be the RAM isnt seated properly. you want to apply pressure at the far ends of the RAM (by the little latches) and try to get it to seat evenly.
take out all the RAM and put it in 1 stick at a time to be sure each slot works, and each stick works.
i'm trying to find a very old page about learning linux but google only comes up with shit
it was a text based page
i have this simple diagram in my mind of how a file is being read from the filesystem and loaded in the ram
not sure if anyone knows what i mean
So im stuck between gnome and kde plasma which one is better? What other guis are you guys using for arch??
Does anyone on /g/ use this on their desktop?
4chan or Fortran?
Just noticed that Humble Bundle put up a couple cybersecurity books. 14 books for $15.
What does /g/ think of these books? Are they worth it?
