Can I play csgo only with a i3 or a ryzen?
Don't have a monitor had a laptop but it died and I can't use it not case no monitor so I'm pretending to build a fucking cheap 500 bucks pc
When linux users just buy windows license and stop talking shit about windows ?

After 14 years of using Windows Malware XP-7-10 Pro R.A.T, i have finally purchased a maxxed out MacBook Pro 15 to replace both my desktop and my laptop and that absolute shit of an OS
The reason behind this premium purchase was:
1 - Got tired of that piece of shit Windoze. No matter how many steps you're going through to secure your personal data, you can still get fucked by a malware. Happened to me just a few weeks ago when i was on the verge of losing a fuck ton of money in alternative cryptocurrencies because of a social engineering hack that made me install an application which, by the way, was not recognized by any antivirus.
I hate Winshit for the random bsods and for the countless of forced restarts that came after irrelevant updates.
2 - I'm not a GayMer, therefore i won't miss anything related to that, even though i can always bootcamp into Windows or just use Geforce Now or Liquid Sky if i want to return to being a loser and play some good gaymes.
3 - The build quality of the MacBook Pro is fucking insane. If you didn't play with one in real life, please shut the fuck up and return to your rainbow colored plasticky dog shit of a laptop. Don't voice your opinion because your opinion based on photos and videos is not worth anything.
4 - The competition is vastly inferior, even though it's running faster. I would always choose a Panamera (MacBook) instead of a riced up Nissan that runs faster (Dell). Give me a well balanced device instead of an overheating piece of garbage that runs out of gas in 4 hours and is made out of horse manure.
Speaking about Dell XPS 15, which is the only viable competition to MacBook, ( I won't mention any of the Microtrash SurFeces devices because they are dual core), i have noticed the following flaws
Wobbles on flat surfaces
3-4 hours of usage on 4k monitor
The display has a ton of issues. (too vibrant and darkens around the edges lol)
The webcam is positioned right under your fucking ballsack lmao
Can't open it with one finger
Pimped up with carbon fiber
16:9 with a 30 centimeter bottom border wat?
Comes with WannaCry 10 Pro preinstalled
The usb type c port is not full bandwidth (BTFO because in a few years everything will be usb type c and you will be carrying alotta fucking dongles)
The MacBook Pro costs about $1000 more than this piece of shit and does not come with any of these flaws. In my opinion, just for the fact that it's coming with MacOS and not Windows 10 is worth alone the extra 1000.
For those who are using MacOS (MacBook) right now: Can you please guide me into what apps to install first ?
For example, i need a good search app that is similar to Void's "Everything" (win application that indexes all your files and retrieves the search results instantly.
What package manager ?
What terminal ?
Should i use Parallels or Vmware ? I'm planning on using 2 virtual machines (1 for Winshit since i need some of the apps and another for Loonix)
Any optimizations for the battery ?
Should i buy a cover/skin/wrap for my MacBook ? Is dbrand ok ? Does the MacBook scratch easily ?
I'm waiting for suggestions
I hope that i won't see any son of a prostitute named Rakesh, that shits behind the house, voicing his opinion in here, unless i want a good laugh, which is not what i would prefer right now.
I'm looking for a CD/DVD wallet or booklet. I know these are diamond dozens (sp?) but everyone I find has sleeves aka "you are going to scratch your CD every time you remove it or put it back. oh and if you are clumsy they will all end up on the floor."
Once, years ago, a friend had a case that had real clasps to hold the CDs, like pic related, only it held 20+ CDs.
Now, does such a thing no longer exist? Has everyone resigned themselves to shitty sleeves? Or do I just lack the google-fu to find what I'm looking for?
In case it wasn't clear, I want pic related, only that doesn't have sleeves, but does have positive retention clasps in the central hub.
my google fu is superior to yours
"cd wallet with hard plastic"
Where can i find a free host for my mud /g/?
What you like about it?
What you don't like about it?
>what do I like about it
amazing keyboard, trackpoint, legitimate 15 hour battery life on linux, great screen, weighs 2.5 lbs, runs cool
>what don't I like about it
quality control. it's non existent. But they have decent customer service. I'm waiting for my third replacement. First one had loose mouse buttons, second one had a DOA touchpad.
This is how Loonix "gaming" looks like.
Post them homescreens. No cleaning
why is amd so popular now when intel cpus still have better single core performance?
i thought gaymers only cared about single core performance?
10% higher single core performance with a GPU bottleneck is irrelevant.
10% higher single core performance with a CPU bottleneck is nearly close to irrelevant.
tl;dr Intel's single core advantage doesn't do much outside of a few games
My PC still has SCSI drives. Each weigh a ton more than a current SATA HDD. Why? The drives are 15k rpm server drives. Are they heavier because of the beefier motor or are they actually built to last longer?
SCSI is a dead interface bro. 15K HDD are extinct.
SSD media completely rapes their shit even budget models using SATA interface.
Spinners only existed because they are still cheaper and denser for bulk data storage.
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)
>G4560 - Budget builds (<$500)
>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/Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/mixed use; Not required 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

>Ryzen CPUs benefits 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 exceptionally good stock coolers. (with the exception of the 1600X) consider using them over any sub 35USD cooler.
