>R3 1300x - Good stop-gap between the 1500x and the 1200, only get a 1400 if you absolutely need multithreading
>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

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
Sup /pcbg/, got the design I posted a few backs made into stickers, they're going to go up on my site on the 7th at 6pm est if anyone is interested.
From dead thread:
Currently using an i5 2500k and gtx 970, can't decide on either a 1080 or a 1700x mainly for having discord/Firefox on one monitor, guild wars 2 in the other.

>emojis in the documentation
A picture is worth a thousand words, and emojis tend to be 3-4 bytes large, so really you're saying space. For example:
>when you type "emojis" but it autocorrects to the name of your first girlfriend (I'm a girl btw)
See? It adds the emotional context without needing to add words to explain
>Headphone purchase advice:
Please put some effort into your requests and questions.
If you dislike a suggestion, explain why and try giving a better suggestion to whomever asked.

What's a better processor than this
You have to be retarded to think the FX processors were anything but overheating fucking garbage.
The reason why AMD was able to get an over 40% IPC improvement from Bulldozer to Zen is not so much how good Zen is, but how fucking trash Bulldozer was.
Now fuck off and kill yourself.
