Select a circle using the ellipse selection tool. Shift constrains it to a circle selection.
Select - Border
Swipe a brush across it.

What's so difficult about this?

Five years ago, every machine in my household was running Windows, today, none of them are. When I was in HS, I installed Linux and have been using it since. Then my mom discovered an ipad and she stopped using PCs altogether. My brothers and sisters use either Linux or Macs. My father was the last holdout and he kept on using his Dell Latitude and wouldn't get rid of it. After that WannaCry bullshit and the second wave of ransomware shit, he decided to ditch Windows too. He told me that today he got a new laptop.

Oh, it feels so damn great now because I won't have to do any Winshit tech support anymore when I'm back from university!

What about your household /g/? Have you ditched Windows yet? What are you doing to move your family away from that cancerous OS?

Anon. Make a blog. Update it with every tech support issue you've had in your home. It'd both be a good resource and some anecdotal evidence for others to do the same.

It'll probably be empty. So it's not much work either.

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?
How to assemble a PC, select components & more (kind of outdated)
https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php?title=Build_a_PC

CPUs:
No i5 unless discounted
>G4560/G4600 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R5 1400 - Cheapest quad core you can get (Ryzen 3 soon)
>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 - 144hz only
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming

GPUs:
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

RAM:
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM

General:
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.

Trying to build a fairly inexpensive rig that can play some of my favorite older games. Not looking to run anything at 8k 6000fps, just wanna be able to play like borderlands and civilization at a pretty good resolution. I’d also like it to be fairly small, I’ve seen some of these cases at Fry’s that are the size of a nightstand and I really don’t need that either. I don’t know a lot about this stuff please halp me /g/

Is there any reason why my location isn't showing??
