https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php?title=Build_a_PC

CPUs:
No i5 unless discounted
>G4560 - poverty-tier builds
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R5 1400 - If you need multithreading
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage
>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
>VEGA
>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

RAM:
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM, 3200 MHz is ideal

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

First for my new computer didn't bring me happiness
>>
So reposting my question for the new thread. I'll try to make it smaller.

Got some money coming my way, want to upgrade my computer. Goal is to be able to play at 1080p for the next good while at ultra. Found out I don't really need to upgrade my 3570k to do that so saved some money in a way.

This is making me consider splurging a little bit, I was going to go with the 6gb 1060 as it meets my goals fairly well, but considering I'll be saving in a way not having to buy the cpu/mobo I was planning on needing to buy I'm wondering if the 1070 might be ok to get. The 130 dollar or so price difference isn't nothing to me, but if it gets me even more longevity at 1080p and gives me the option to further upgrade later if I end up with more money I could try to go for 1440p eventually. It might be worth it, was hoping for some thoughts from those who know more than I.

Why ThinkPad?

>Excellent keyboards - tactile feel and quiet.
>Great durability: chassis uses a magnesium rollcage for structural integrity, with high quality plastic body panels.
>Utilitarian design: e.g. indicator LEDs, 7 row keyboard layout on older models.
>Docking stations that easily turns your laptop into a desktop.
>Easy to repair, upgrade and maintain thanks to readily available service manuals for every model. Spare parts are easy and cheap to obtain.
>The best trackpoint (that red thing in the middle of the keyboard). Great for those who type a lot or hate swiping their fingers all over a touchpad.
>Excellent GNU/Linux & *BSD support.

Top notch? Or worst ever?

Why is no one discussing the fact that Apple has pulled off the impossible yet again by creating an OLED screen that mitigates every known drawback to OLED while preserving its advantages? Instead you guys are spazzing out the aesthetics. I thought this was a technology board.
