    Well, let's see....I love computers so much I decided to go back to school and get an IT degree so I can turn my hobby into a career. I'm almost done with my AAS in Computer Networking but I'm enjoying it so much that I will probably continue on to get other certifications and another degree potentially. I would spend all my waking hours building and programming computers and tech if I could. I like to say that, give me enough time and resources (aka Google) and I can fix most problems when it comes to computers. My instructors like to say, when something goes wrong its usually a case of a P.E.B.C.A.K (If you don't know what that stands for, and you don't work in IT...you can probably Google it. :P).

    Voluntereering and BYOC question

    I'm getting a list of people who want my ticket if I end up not going/not needing it, lol.
  2. I mean, you're not wrong, I would not mind staying in Canada, just like...I'd want to be more prepared for it

    New programmer, language question

    I also recommend Python. I'm actually in school for IT and one of the classes I took last year was a basic Python class and as ridiculous as it sounds, the book we used was called "Python for Kids" and it was actually a really good resource since my instructor was mostly crap I'm now going into SQL, and that's a very in-demand skill in a lot of jobs so that would be another great one to learn in general.

    Gaming CPU Build

    It was literally just an anecdote. I don't know what really killed those PSUs but I know my CPU is a power hog, and its also dying and I don't have the money to replace it. Its got other problems. Really, why does it matter? Its like I was just sharing my own experience and point of view or something...I never claimed it to be fact that AMD chips kill PSUs or anything. Just my system seems to have gone that way. Some people like MSI. Every experience I've had with them has been crap. *shrug* I guess maybe I should have been more clear and specified that I don't believe my CPU was responsible for killing two PSUs but it sure could seem that way to someone who didn't know any better.

    Gaming CPU Build

    Here's the thing, everyone here has different opinions and different facts to back up those opinions. So sure, we could argue about it all day and still not be of any help to the OP. So instead of trying to shove my opinions on someone who's obviously not familiar with PC building, I chose to share what I've experienced and recommend something I would build if I were in their shoes. All that should matter is that the person building the system gets a system that they will be happy with.

    Gaming CPU Build

    He doesn't seem to be as concerned about the budget as whether or not it will perform appropriately; I tossed the cooler in as an afterthought. Its not necessary with that system but it does match with the case. AMD is also notoriously power-hungry, and I can attest to that as I have an AMD system that has ruined 2 power supplies already. I like to go a little higher than normal with the PSU, plus I have never had a Corsair PSU let me down. In any case, my builds are only suggestions - OP doesn't have to take ANY of our suggestions, honestly. Something that no one here has really seemed to understand.

    Gaming CPU Build

    I sent you a PM as well @HulkyThicc but here is a build I would suggest that's still within your budget. I left off the graphics card since you've already chosen that, so these parts + the GPU should be right around your price range of $1700 (unless that GTX 1080ti you found is still ridiculously expensive) for the whole system. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions that I can answer for you!

    What is a good Tablet/PC in 2018/19?

    I have an HP Envy x360 with a Ryzen 5 CPU that I absolutely love. I use it mostly for school, upgraded my RAM from 8 to 16 GB so I can run VMs on it. It doesn't have a detachable screen, but rather it folds around so the keyboard ends up under the screen and I honestly prefer that design to the detachable ones. There's a bunch of different models of the Envy x360 at different price points, so I'd say its worth a look if not having a detachable screen isn't a deal-breaker.

    Gaming CPU Build

    ^ I can attest to this. I run an AMD system with a 4K monitor and aside from my CPU pooping itself in only the newest titles it absolutely kills otherwise. (I really want to get up to Ryzen asap as I'm still on an FM2+ socket APU)

    Gaming CPU Build

    @HulkyThicc That's a very decent build for a gaming system. Honestly, I'm a camp AMD kinda person but even I know that Intel is the best around for gaming. Sadly, not the best on your budget most of the time, but that's kinda what happens since Intel's only competition in the CPU market has been AMD and only recently has Intel began to sweat at what they're putting out with Ryzen. I want to see better from both sides. Anyway, tell your friend that they're an idgit and build your computer and smoke them in all the games.
  12. Idk, there's always the slight possibility that I do everything I need to and they still send me back, I mean I haven't been to Canada in over 10 years - back when you only needed a copy of your birth certificate to cross the border and back ....or, even worse scenario, I get trapped in Canada cause the US won't let me back in

    Voluntereering and BYOC question

    If things don't work out or whatever, I'll definitely keep you in mind if I end up needing to offload my ticket for any reason! Now if only someone involved with LTX could answer my question about the BYOC/volunteering then I could know for sure what I'm gonna be doing @CPotter any info?

    My disk usage is very high

    What's your RAM usage looking like?

    What rig will you bring to the LAN party?

    I spy a CRU dataport on there, a Rosewill USB/card reader and you have a very similar fan controller to mine also - 40TB? how much does that sucker weigh!?
