  1. It's restricted to US only (you can only link US based bank accounts).
  2. Have you tried using Nvidia Shadowplay? Takes the load off the CPU. You should also consider tuning your x264 settings to optimize for performance rather than sheer quality if you haven't already.
  3. I don't find just going to a course is helpful. You're learning without purpose. Who cares what polymorphism is if you don't have an idea how it plays out when it is applied? Find some project and see it from start to finish. Learn everything you need to do to finish that project.
  4. To really hammer the CPU I've used Handbrake or Folding@Home for at least a week (while I'm not active, no shutdown period).
  5. Are you buying these things new? This seems to be around the $600-700 price point and you really ought to consider second hand stuff.
  6. From the benchmark it looks like its performing as expected. Try installing the optifine mod and changing the rendering settings.
  7. At that price range you'd definitely want to consider second hand stuff. On the Vancouver craiglist there are some RX 480s/GTX 1060s floating around for ~150-180 CAD, so for $500 you can get potentially better gaming performance than the one in your signature, minus the accessories. If she is satisfied with the current performance of your PC, then you should just give her yours and build your own.
  8. At 1440p the 3600 performs nearly identical to the 2700X in games, even beating it out slightly in a few cases: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-ryzen-5-3600/16.html Similar story in encoding: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-ryzen-5-3600/13.html Either is a good choice. I would personally go with the 3600 because it consumes less power: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-ryzen-5-3600/18.html
  9. What do you think it means? How would you debug this?
  10. You are missing a single double-quotes after the "Wrong! (You guessed too high) line. In Python 3 it is the norm to use print using curved braces, as in the first time you did it. I have posted the correct version below. import random def numberGuess(): print("I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 10") randNum = random.randrange(1,11) # this line generates a random number while guess != randNum: guess = int(input("Try to guess the number:")) # ask user for a number if guess == randNum: print("You got it!") if guess > randNum: print("Wrong! (You guessed too high)") if guess < randNum: print("Wrong! You guessed too low") numberGuess()
  11. Don't overthink it. It honestly won't matter too much. The NH-D15 is no joke. I would stick to the front and rear fans for now and if you find that you need more air flow, you can just buy two more. Also questions you should ask yourself: Do you really need an 8700k? What do you need to do that the 8600k simply cannot do? Does $100 justify the performance increase/hyperthreading? Do you really need to dump $250 on the motherboard? There are some perfectly good motherboards for <$150. I should have asked myself this question when I first built my own PC. Would have saved me $$$ and perhaps even got more performance.
  12. That post references LTSB install so it omits some of the more consumer-focused features.
  13. It will work. There has been work on this and if you google around you'll find some creative posts like this:
  14. Update: Tested this display with an R9 390X and had the similar issue. I resolved this by setting the display to just 8-bit instead of 10-bit. The flickering disappeared immediately.
  15. I currently own the XPS 13 9350 with the QHD+ display (older version) and have been using for university and it's been working great. Love the keyboard. If I had to get a new laptop right now, I would get the XPS 13 9360 with the 1080p screen. While the higher resolution is nice, I would personally would like a longer battery life. I was also considering the Huawei MatebookX Pro. I spent like half an hour with it in the Microsoft store and it was a beautiful piece of tech. The 3:2 aspect ratio is certainly a different experience, more-so just slightly larger screen real-estate (edge-to-edge in both horizontal and vertical compared to just horizontal on the XPS). The new Macbook Air looks really nice as well. Would recommend spending some time in an Apple Store/Microsoft Store to see what you like/don't like.
