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.

Shit i want to have one linux monitor and one windows monitor so bad, but i just can't justify buying a new pc just for the uefi support when this one handles all the programming i do and the one game i play perfectly fine plus 80% of things i do require windows anyway..

anyone use KDE? it's still miles better than all other desktop enviorments, but after just a short time using it I found many really crap bugs
latest KDE plasma issues and bugs:
every time you change wallpaper the entire session crashes and restarts
have to hit "Log out" / "Reboot" multiple times to actually take effect from start menu
Various steam games will randomly break Kwin and have no boarders.
Various steam games open on wrong monitor with graphical glitches
Various steam games black screen and crash the whole system.
Audio will randomly crackle and distort terribly. Fix on arch wiki?
whats up with this? why is linux software so buggy? when will linux software finally be usable?
>why is linux software so buggy?
It's KDE that is to blame in this instance. They can't seem to focus on getting rid of bugs, instead they continue to pile more shit on top of them.
Look. Why is it so shitty for me?
Also, another one

Why can't Windows laptops have a similar build quality to MacBooks?
Alright /g/ what the hell
I run a PC building/review channel on YouTube. My first build video (this guy: https://youtu.be/rrzp_fS1GRY) has gotten almost a quarter million views. I got featured on the front page for a few days which exploded my stats - literally thousands of times more views than I had been receiving previously.
Following the same format for my second build (similar title, tags, description, content) I made this video: https://youtu.be/W_QboP9A9UU.
Two weeks later, it still has less than 2,000 views. It never showed up on the front page, and in fact it isn't even being listed in suggested videos - a grand total of less than 200 views from suggested videos.
That budget build is still getting over 500 views PER DAY, almost 5 months after it was uploaded. The new build? Under 50, less than 2 weeks later.
What the fuck?
As someone who owned a cancer vine channel, I can tell you that consistency is key. As long as you constantly upload and it's not complete dogshit. You will grow. Stick to your current style of making videos. People seem to enjoy it.
