  1. Those will all work together. The GPU is pretty weak, if it is within your budget consider a stronger GPU. You might be able to find something stronger for a similar price in the used market. If it is not a surprise for your friend, have them choose the case. That way it has an aesthetic they like.
  2. I'm using Mint on my work laptop and really like it. If there is something you don't like with it the nice thing about Linux is you can change it. People make a really big deal about the terminal and it is worth learning about, but for general use the GUI is very similar to what you would deal with in Windows. If you want to move a file you can just click and drag from one folder into another, just like on Windows. For gaming Proton has done a lot for making gaming easier on Linux. Many Windows only games for Steam can now just be installed and run. If you do need to make changes to run a game, there are usually instructions you can find with a web search. The community for Linux is pretty good too. A lot of people talk about the toxicity of the community, but so far my experience has been very positive. Many people in the community want Linux to see more wide spread adoption and are willing to help. Below are some links to help you get started.

Like I said most of the community wants to help, but some people just want to watch the world burn. Linux commands never to run: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/9-lethal-linux-commands-never-run/
  3. It has nothing to do with Cyberpunk 2077. I was answering a question asked in crazyeyeguy's post above. It's not still going on they settled with him.
  4. Mr. Sapkowski didn't expect the video games to be a success, hence the lawsuit. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-10-02-witcher-author-andrzej-sapkowski-unsuccessfully-demands-more-money-from-cd-projekt
  5. Sorry, I've never actually done it before. I was just tossing it out as a possible solution. A youtube search might have a good tutorial.
  6. You could try reflashing the VBIOS on the GPU. If the card already seems to be bricked it certainly couldn't hurt.
  7. Better to have a finished game than a buggy mess at release. If we want less patch it after release games, then this is the price for it. It doesn't help that this is the game following the Witcher 3. Most other devs could release a game that is just really good and be fine. The level of hype this game received, unfortunately set it up for "anything less than a masterpiece is failure".
  8. I'm a paramedic, so I have to work national holidays pretty often, but I get time and a half when I do. I also accrue PTO (paid time off) for hours worked, so I can usually take about 2 weeks off a year.
  9. I think I'll stick with my Paul's Hardware mat. https://paulshardware.net/all-products/thumb-screw-gaming-mouse-pad-40-cm-x-25-cm-x-2-mm
  10. Can the arm be adjusted to prevent GPU sag?
  11. I usually don't. Even when I play games with a muti player focus like Borderlands or Destiny 2, I usually play them solo.
  12. They might. Some of the DMVs have been selling data. https://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/ca-dmv-makes-50m-selling-personal-data-report-says/2202432/
  13. The CPU should be fine. Fortnite isn't that demanding. At your price range a used 6 GB GTX 1060 is probably the way to go.
  14. The FX series is starting to get pretty old. Saving up for an new setup might not be a bad idea. You can then use your cooler in your new build. It's not like the cooler will go bad in a year or two, it's a hunk of metal with a fan on it. As a more direct answer to your question, I couldn't find one on amazon. Most people have the opposite problem of wanting to make an old AM3 cooler work on a AM4 Mobo. I suppose if you measured carefully you might be able to 3D print something.
  15. If I didn't know the person why would I care if their name is in the title. I usually go to the kitchen to get a drink when the end credits pop up (to avoid missing an end credit scene).
