Is it time to pull the trigger?
I have a 3750K and 16GB ram... it feels like it would be a nice boost in performance if I upgrade... but I mean, it's not like I absolutely need an upgrade.
Quite frankly, the last time that I ugpraded I didnt really need it either. Back then it was from a Q6600 to a 3750K.

It feels more like any software that is slow is slow because it's written badly... not because my hardware is bad.

the only cons are that it only supports vp9 and there's no copy url option when you right click and image.

other than that it's probably the best browser for windows 10.

There's a time when video game dev stops being creative

If you want help:
>Assemble parts list

>State the budget for your build (and country if not 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?

CPUs:
No i5 unless discounted
>G4560 - poverty-tier builds
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)
>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
>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 or Vega 56 - [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
>Good fucking luck even getting a VEGA right now

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

Best Buy employee here that got forced into the Apple Master position, ask me anything.

Forced into it? Don't they lend you a free iPhone 7 and Apple watch? Sounds cool to me. I work PCs as well, but it's easy to make rev and engage customers when they see that you're an apple master.
>>
Are you me? I'm in the same boat.

5s and s1 watch.

I hate having 2 phones, and I'm not going to use the iPhone because it's like half the size of my personal phone (6p)
>>
>>62158692
Not op,

It's easier to sell ,sure. I hate that I'm the only one at work that has an Apple watch though. Even though we have 2 apple watch demos, I get all the calls about it because nobody wants to just learn. Everyone pawns off their customers to me.

An undocumented Windows update was pushed by Microsoft last night.
After updating, Windows gave no information about what the update does.

Clicking on the More info link in Windows leads to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4033637

A concerned user asked in the windows community help forum what it does.
The Microsoft representative responded
>May we know why you're asking for this specific update?
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-update/windows-10-update-kb4033637/2feb85a7-84b5-47aa-95aa-9c60ef8cd821?auth=1

This is very suspicious.

It was arguably Microsoft's best looking operating system.
It got some shit at launch, but even after\before so, what went wrong?
And why cant you use it in 2017?
