  1. Honestly, 16GB is plenty unless you're doing serious video editing/3d work/other content creation tasks, and 3000mhz should be sufficient... With a higher budget I'd maybe add in an R7 2700 to give you a bit of a CPU performance boost, but either way I'd definitely grab an aftermarket cooler so that you can do a bit of overclocking.
  2. Yeah that's total BS... the Ryzen 5 2600 is one of the best values in PC hardware right now, and you won't regret going with AMD.
  3. In that case the linux LiveUSB route would be a better option for you
  4. So you tried to boot off the broken drive? That's not a good idea I was suggesting to connect the drive as a secondary drive to a PC that already has an OS on it.
  5. What do you mean by "no good"? The drive wasn't detected at all? The drive was detected but no data was on it? If you want help you have to be more specific about what's going on.
  6. You could try making an Ubuntu live USB and booting off that, or maybe pull the drive and stick it in another machine as a secondary?
  7. If it's an XP machine I doubt it's running an SSD
  8. Yeah your windows install is fucked, as is possibly your HDD. Although I question why you're running XP in the first place?
  9. Yeah that kit would be fine, MT/s is the same as MHz in the case of RAM. (just a tip: next time you make a post asking for hardware recommendations; mention the country you're in so we know where to look for hardware)
  10. The best Linus channel and the only one that really matters
  11. Linus accidentally leaked his address on stream, so they pulled it in order to censor that.
