    See here.
     
    Basically, it's just warning you there's a chance that 'x' might be a larger value than the declared length of 'decryptedMessage'. Check that x < decryptedMessageLength in your for loop.

    Lennart van de Merwe got a reaction from BTGbullseye in RX 570 vs 580 for i7 3770   
    Now, how will a 3770 bottleneck an rx570.

    The i7 3770, will be bottlenecked by an rx 570 (also, BF5 on an rx570 seems like a bad investment, especially if you're looking 2 years ahead). 
    I myself had an i7 2600 + gtx 970 (gtx 970 = ~rx580 -depends on the game), by this logic the i7 3770 will not bottleneck an rx580 or an rx590. 

    Now, I think, especially with your golden electricity, the gtx 1660 will be the best. If I'm to guess, the 1660 will be bottlenecked a little bit by the i7-3770, but not by much.

    Edit: note: the i7 2600 did not bottleneck the gtx 970.

    Aight chief, choose the ryzen 7 model. You aren't going to be doing heavy AutoCAD on either, but it's possible. If it is possible, you can upgrade to 16 gigs later.

    The left laptop for sure, mainly because it has SSD storage and quite a bit extra CPU headroom.

    You aren't going to be using more then 8gb with gaming on this laptop. Middleload to heavyload video editing isn't really gonna work out either way, so just stick with 8 gb ram laptop that has the better CPU and storage.

    If you want more specific advice tell us what you're gonna be doing with the laptop.

    HOW TF DID YOU GET THE 2200G TO WORK ???
     
    Dual channel?
     
    then get SSD. streaming Switch games means even lower CPU load for running the game (since the PC isn't running it) so more power can go to encoding.

    Lennart van de Merwe got a reaction from Edi.00 in Ryzen build for 1500$   
    Not a whole lot of details, so here's a vague sketch to get you on the way.
     
    Either go with a ryzen 5 3600x or ryzen 7 model depending on your workload (gaming or next to gaming also video editing and multicore workloads)

    Bequited dark rock cooler for the r7 and for the r5 a pure rock.

    Get an X570 asus strix mobo, cuz ya can't go wrong with those.

    2 x 8 gbs or 4 x 4 gbs of 3600 Mhz ram if your budget allows it and do not go below 3000 Mhzs.
     
    Depending on your workload I recommend either gtx 1660 if you don't plan on gaming, but I assume you will, so go for an rtx 2070 -supe- if your budget allows it. 

    128 gb SSD for Win10 and frequently used programs such as chrome and word. 

    HDD for mass storage

    ATX case.

    PSU that can handle the required power draw from your system, get like a corsair CX series -the newer ones- PSU. (I dunno a whole lot about PSUs so feel free to post a new topic once you got your other components sorted out).

    Lennart van de Merwe got a reaction from TVwazhere in Headphones to Monitor or Case   
    Plug them into your PC directly for now. When you have the budget get an AMP or DAC AMP. You'll already start hearing a clear difference when buying DAC AMPs from around 50 - 60 euros (that'd be 55 - 65 US dollars). This difference does depend on how good your headphones are.

    Lennart van de Merwe reacted to Princess Luna in I3 9100F (80€) v Ryzen 5 2600 (125€)   
    If there's any way for you to save up and afford the R5 2600 + GTX 1660 combo that'd be the best experience possible since you want this to last so much.

    Lennart van de Merwe reacted to 5x5 in I3 9100F (80€) v Ryzen 5 2600 (125€)   
    Look for an R5 1600 - it'll be cheaper and still vastly superior to the i3 and also allow you to get a 1660.
     
    The i3 makes no sense at all - it's a waste of money in 2019

    Lennart van de Merwe reacted to 5x5 in Help me pick my new cpu please   
    That's not true at all anymore. The 9700 is hot, power hungry, slower and has no real upgrade path cause next gen intel CPUs are on a new socket. With AM4, you can upgrade to 16 cores. That's double what you are buying with just a simple BIOS update. Intel makes no sense in 2019

    Reset the ram and run memtest86+. The windows tool is garbage and won't detect an issue. Also, make sure all drivers and firmware are updated. It could also be messed up OS so reinstalling Windows is a good idea.

    Lennart van de Merwe got a reaction from Origami Cactus in Searching for a reasonably priced G-sync FHD ultrawide   
    I HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION. 'TIS THE MONITOR PERFECT FOR ME.
    https://www.coolblue.nl/product/809446/lg-29wk600.html

    HDR10 support, freesync, 75 hz, 2560 x 1080, 29 inch, IPS, A DISPLAYPORT -!-, BUILT IN SPEAKERS (don't know why I'm happy about that), it's also at the same reliable dutch store AND only for the small price of 232 euros.

    Let's hope I've found the perfect match for me.

    Lennart van de Merwe reacted to Origami Cactus in Searching for a reasonably priced G-sync FHD ultrawide   
    Oops, don't get that! It doesn't have a displayport, and that means no g-sync!!! You need a DP port to use g-sync on freesync monitors!

    Lennart van de Merwe reacted to Origami Cactus in Searching for a reasonably priced G-sync FHD ultrawide   
    If you have a nvidia card from 1000 series or upward you could just get a freesync monitor, as nvidia now supports freesync as "g-sync compatible".
    LG freesync monitors work nice with it.
     
    Here is a really nice LG monitor, that costs 449€, but is discounted to 300 right now very good deal:

    At idle your system will use about 130watts.  Under full load it will use 350 to 380 watts.  Your good even with a 450watt PSU.
