who says mpc is dead?

Also, what even makes a "good" media player? If it opens fast, has no ui/input lag and plays videos properly is there really anything else you could want? At this point it seems like there's little room left to improve
it's not like people made up the whole thing you know, it was all about a changelog message a month ago https://mpc-hc.org/2017/07/16/1.7.13-released-and-farewell/

So I finally have enough money to upgrade my really old pc setup. Here's what I'm trying to figure out though, in the age of 1440p, 4k and vr, how expensive of a card do I need if my only goal is playing all current and slightly future games at 1080 p on at least high (hopefully ultra)?

My current setup is a i5 3570k, gtx 670 and 16 gb ram, ancient I know.

After a small amount of preliminary research I was thinking of getting the i5 7600k, a new motherboard (kinda lost on this one, but the GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X seems decent enough and can do what I need, but would be open to suggestions here for good but affordable motherboards) and a 1050ti, 1060 or 1070 gpu.

the 1050 is so affordable and still has double my current vram, and the 1070 is so expensive but seems like it'd last me quite a while.

Also is 16gb enough these days? I upgraded to that a while back since it was cheaper.

Open to suggestions on cpu as well if anyone thinks I'm aiming too high or low for my needs on that.

tldr: upgrading pc, getting motherboard, cpu and gpu, what do I need to be able to play current and somewhat future games on high/ultra 1080p.

thanks in advance guys

Get the I5 8600k coming out next month.
Z370 is just rebrand of Z270. Research Z270 boards and get the Z370 version you like.
Due to cryptotards everything below a 1080 is a bad value. Buy the cheapest non-blower 1080 you can get for 1080p max.
16 gigs is all you need for gaming for a long time.
1060 is good enough for 1080p gayming on high/ultra settings. Try to find a cheap one on eBay and Craigslist (don't get the single fan versions). EVGA usually has B-Stock sales for refurbished 1060s, and I got one for $229 weeks ago. The condition is good when I revived it. If you're getting a CPU now, Ryzen 5 1600 is a perfect buy. Coffee Lake is coming out in Nov/Dec this year, but it won't support your mobo since it's a different socket. You'll have to wait for benchmarks to make a decision.

In light of the recent de-platforming of the stormfags and
other recent incidents it is clear that the future of free
speech is on shaky ground.

The stormfags are considering becoming their own registrar
but that is no better solution, because they are as big of assholes
as the people that booted them off the internet.

We need to prepare for the inevitable and build our own alt
root DNS system to bypass the tyranny of ICANN and the registrars.


1. any TLD can be registered and no fucks given .mylittlepony .faggots .ihatejews
2. TLD's are not owned
3. TLD's should not conflict with existing TLD's on normie net
4. ???

reply suggestions or criticisms.

What's going to stop someone from brute-force registering TLDs if there's no barrier to entry?

Even if they just pick up a ton of the most popular ones and then people have to use randomized strings to reach content they want them that's kinda shitty.
well TLD's are not owned if someone registers ilove.nazi someone else could register ihate.nazi

We have ZeroNet as a pretty well formed alternative, and with its 10MB standard limit it encourages people to be courteous with how they treat other people's hard drive space and bandwidth. 1MB = 200pages of plain text.

>but muh social media and videos

Stop being a brainlet.

Hello /g/ - I require you to perform a simple ABX test. Use whichever equipment you have: contrary to popular belief, a shitty equipment may be affected more by a shitty mp3 than real monitor headphones.

About ABX tests:

Cross-platform software:
(Windows goys may use http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_abx )

I'm shipping three FLACs.
One of these is the source file.
One is derived from an MP3, obtained from the source. Relevant switches:
 -m j -V 1 -q 0 --lowpass 22.1 -b 128 -Y -F

One is derived from an M4A, obtained from the same source. Relevant switches:
 --afterburner 1 --bandwidth 18000 --profile 2  --bitrate 224k

To minimize cheating I've chopped off higher frequencies (AFTER encoding). Please don't cheat.
Post results.

welp bumping just once with doggo
go, doggo

personally I believe I'm able to tell the difference between the original and the other two, even if I can't distinguish mp3 from m4a

I don't know the reason but looking at this i'm finally convinced that MS is scared. I don't know if it may be the recent statistics about the usage of linux increasing by 100% in just a few months or the fact they finally realized that the desktop is not the only profitable market and that in fact is shrinking, along with the fact they have either not being able to force their monopoly or that they have directly fail hard in any other market.

Read this and laugh, and no, you'll not convince me this is not an sponsored article:

For anyone with more than half brain: look at him and laugh.

Normally it should not be sensible to point the finger that way to a company, the problem is that MS already has a BIG record on using this kind of tactics.


What? will you say that this links are a but of bullshit? ok, but at least it contains sources and i don't think it has any more bullshit than the other article.

Also remember when MS tried it's best to deter people from buying chromebooks?


A few years later now they are trying to push Windows S, can they be more pathetic? Seriously, if there's an actual MS shill here please deliver the message that they need to work hard into making better products instead of trying to cripple the competing solutions with lock-ins and similar tactics. They already destroyed their reputation at this point and it's becoming harder to clean it with ads.

you are retarded m8
I truly respect the Linux developers who contributed their time on something extraordinary like this. You never know that the kernel you write will be the biggest threat against a company such as Microsoft, decades later. A big toast for my friends who believed in the libre software, cheers!

Void or Arch ?

Void because no systemd
Real simplicity or simplicity for the devs?
Depends on what you're trying to do with them.

You're supposed to wait till page 10 you neophyte weeb.

Sup lads? I'm a civil engineering student and although I have a decent desktop, it turns out I need a portable computer for a workshop where Civil 3D is used.
I looked for T410s and T420s but they're at minimum 350 bucks and 430 bucks respectively, as I live in South America where everything is more expensive. I also found a Dell E6410 for 250 bucks but it has a 540M processor. A friend of mine used to have a 530M and it sucked.

Dell Latitude E65XX or the Dell Precision model of the same year. You'll get XX30 specs at XX20 price if you give up the Thinkpad brand.

I also like it since Dell doesn't have hardware DRM like XX30 series.

>Buy SSD off Amazon

NO, FUCK. Why does Amazon use this meme company?

Quick rundown?
>he does not understand same day delivery
Possibly the worst delivery company, ever. They steal your shit, they don't deliver your package on time, if you live in an apartment they leave your package outside the building, among other things. Just Google their Yelp and you will see how terrible they are.

I do though but Amazon didn't always use this shit company. I used to get my same day delivery by FedEx and it was fucking fantastic. Now I get Lasership and that other garbage company who I would still vastly prefer over fucking Lasership. I hate it, I'm cancelling my Prime sub.
