      PayPal Problem - Some payments not going through   20 May 2017

      PayPal appears to be experiencing problems at the moment, resulting in people being billed but the transaction showing as failed on our end. If you have signed up for a new subscription, and the transaction is showing as pending on the forum, so you haven't gained floatplane access yet, and you have waited more than 10 minutes after purchasing it in PayPal, please go to https://linustechtips.com/main/failed_transaction_fix.php and follow the instructions. If you have any issues, please send me a PM (hover over my picture or username and click "message"), including the transaction ID, and I will try and sort it out for you.

  1. avoid razer, they have poorly engineered overpriced machines, look at something like msi vr stealth or aero 14. what are you studying in collage?
  2. what do you mean? i5s are getting bottlenecked by anything better than a rx480/1060, it's already a bottleneck.
  3. a cheap ryzen 1600 ( 5820k/6800k) or 1700( 5960x/6900k) for much less, it can even compete with i7 7700k in terms of gaming performance with 3200mhz ram, i5s have become overpriced, not really worth the money.
  4. yes you can, unless you have the 970s, 970 sli is not a good idea, i suggest you save up to get a 1070
  5. - currency exchange - tax -tariffs - resellers profit
  6. it's binned a higher, if OP can afford it, it would be a better idea.
  7. 1700x will let OP overclock higher, especially since OP will be using custom cooling.
  8. i read it, a cheap key for 20$, with insurance it might be 23$. long as you buy insurance it should be good
  9. 1700
  10. no pictures
  11. bf4

    use ethernet
  12. not a new build, if you were to build a new PC with new parts, you would need a key.
  13. not for a new rig
  14. its cheap and easy to get, buying windows for over 100$ is not really worth it, you get an official license.
