Something that I can throw on my moms PC from 15 years ago but also use as a daily on my netbook from '13

lubuntu was my first lightweight distro of choice

AMD wins again!

Just wait for them to (((fix))) this.

Reminder that conservatives killed Alan Turning, and would've killed him sooner if given the chance. Imagine how many would-be innovators never left their mark because conservatism got in the way.

Albert Einstein was exiled by the Nazis. They probably would've killed him too. You're proving my point, anon.

If the answer to all of these questions is "Yes", than grab a Paperwhite and go nuts.

They're the best reading experience you will ever get outside of a paper book.

>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)

>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM

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 surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.

Noctua dude here from previous thread, any tips before I take this cpu cooler off again to reapply this paste?

This is gonna be a pain in the ass because my motherboard is already in the case
Is there any difference in performance or thermals between the ITX and non-ITX models of the RX560? The MSI RX560 ITX 4GB is way cheaper than the non ITX models at my local store

Whatever happened to just making a good product and not shoving your goddamn politics in everyone's face?
Everyone knows Mozilla is worse at this point don't they?
Hell Brave Browser was created by Eich after he was forced out from Mozilla over his political views.
Mozilla firefox uses google analytics in one of their addons page on their own website.

(Brave and other forks work aswell.)

OP is actually right. Most people on this board can't even afford an i5, let alone a threadripper.
