    Yet another first time build

    Overall, you've got a pretty solid build going here that will definitely never have a problem with 1080p gaming. As far as RAM, 8GB is fine for now, but I would suggest upgrading in the future. (And if you plan on upgrading to 16 later down the road, one 8GB stick would be better than two 4GB sticks) Another thing would be to maybe get a slightly better 1060. You could get a 6GB 1060 instead of a 3GB one for not much more, and the extra VRAM will definitely help out especially if you maybe get another monitor down the road.

    Gaming/Twitch Streaming PC

    You have a bit of an interesting build here. You have some very high-end parts mixed with some fairly low-end parts that I wouldn't use with this build. I'd recommend getting a *much* better CPU cooler for that beast of a processor. That little 212 evo is gonna struggle. I'd also get a different model 1080. Especially in such an open-air case, something other than that blower-style card would perform much better. Lastly, I'd maybe go for some different storage options. You can definitely get some much better performance storage for not much higher of a price.

    Good Gaming Laptop??

    For a similar spec laptop, you could get something for significantly less (around $900) with something like the Inspiron 7577. However, you can also get much better products at about the same price range. One example is the Razer Blade which recently went on sale on Amazon for roughly the same price

    Network unreachable - Arch Linux

    Alright, I'll do some more google searching and see what I can find. Thanks for the help!

    Network unreachable - Arch Linux

    No, it's a desktop that is connected to my network via ethernet. When I booted the Arch installation from USB, it connected automatically. However, after rebooting Arch from my boot drive, networking is no longer functioning.

    Network unreachable - Arch Linux

    Both ip and ipconfig yield nothing, however, I found that ip link responds with: 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 2: enp3s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/either 00:19:b9:00:68:f8 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

    Network unreachable - Arch Linux

    The ifconfig command gives me a reply of "-bash: ifconfig: command not found"
  8. I'm a bit of a command-line Linux noob. (I only have experience with Linux mint) And today, I've tried to get into the world of Arch Linux. I recently did everything for installation, including formatting drives, bootloader and such, then rebooted and booted from my boot drive instead of the installation USB. Everything is working perfectly fine, and I went to download a desktop environment and found out that networking is no longer working. I am unable to ping any website or my router despite being connected via ethernet. Sorry if this is kinda a noob mistake, I'm still a bit new to this and looking to learn. Any help configuring my network would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    iOS 11 MMS doesn't exist?

    I use a subsidiary of T-Mobile, and had no problems before the update

    iOS 11 MMS doesn't exist?

    I don't seem to be able to receive MMS either. Non-iMessage MMS group chats don't seem to work correctly either

    iOS 11 MMS doesn't exist?

    I was about to record this in the feedback app, I just wanted to check if there's another way to fix it before I did

    iOS 11 MMS doesn't exist?

    I've been running the iOS 11 beta since beta 9 on my iPhone and just today updated to the final version. One thing that I noticed is that any sort of MMS between non-iMessage devices doesn't seem to be supported. When texting an android or non-iOS device, tapping the camera icon to send a picture does absolutely nothing. The "enable MMS" option in settings seems to be completely removed as well. Any help or insight on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Incompatible q8400?

    q6600's weren't that much on eBay either, so I might try one of those Thanks!

    Incompatible q8400?

    Do you think trying to update through XP would be worth it then?
