I want to buy/build a PC for the main purpose of editing and rendering videos. What are my options?
Sorry if this isn't allow on /g/ but /mu/ told me this belongs here.
I've started to create my own music and want to record but have no idea where to start. I downloaded reaper (free) and started teaching myself that but I still need a decent mic and headphones. The equipment doesn't need to last me forever as I'll probably buy more as I get better but I'd like to get the best equipment for the price. I'm willing to spend $100 on a mic and around $75 on a set of headphones.
So for headphones, I'd highly recommend Westone UM Pro 30s just because they're really flat and have almost no soundstage at all. They're also non-proprietary unlike their Shure competitors. But if you're looking for over/on-ear headphones, I don't really know much, so probably go to the /hpg/ general here.
Is this worth doing these days?
What are you getting this prime day?
Is this finally the year of linux?
That's great and all, but how long until Microsoft gets around to fixing this bug?
Post your stupid questions here if you can't be bothered to git gud. Remember, use Google first.
I posted this last night, but got no good responses:
I'm not going to say why this happened, but lets just say that I deleted a large Windows partition in Gparted and now my computer won't even start. I try to go into the boot menu, and nothing happens. I try to go into BIOS menu, and nothing happens. I even tried to boot directly from a Linux Mint USB, and nothing happens.
I can't remove the hard drive from the laptop, so I don't know what to do. Please help!
Pic related is similar to what it looks like when the boot freezes.
Here is my build so far.
The problem I am currently having is that the Pic related cooler, a H7 Quad Lumi is out of stock everywhere I have looked. Downgrading to the original H7 would mean I would need a "free" adapter from the manufacturer. Everything I have read says they ship very late and the install is a pain in the ass. I have been looking around for other AM4 out of box compatible coolers but I must just suck at hunting today cause I can't find anything in over an hour of searching that gives a definitive answer.
What comes after digital?
first there was analog and then digital. now what
How do I move files to the Wine file explorer? Or copy and paste files from the file explorer to desktop?

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.
Buying used is perfectly fine for budgets (PSU excluded)
Seriously? What even is this? Every other distro works fine and the most mainstream one that is supposed to work out of the box fails?
Also, Chromium has no problems with this. What is going on with Firefox on Ubuntu? How do I fix this? Thank you.

No really. What do I do?

Exuce me, but I am using arch linux. The only linux what a real man uses.
>Oh I did not know that let me apologize by doing this.
She starts sucking my dick then we kiss for hours.
Tell me again /g/ why aren't you using arch linux?
