    How to play league of legends on Linux

    You know normally I'm not either; except in League I kinda have to be... I'm actually fairly high ranked (somewhere in diamond, depends bouncing between like top 1.5% and top 0.25%) ... and I sometimes do tournaments and/or coachings for money, and so if I'm averaging 60fps (which goes as low as 20 or 30 in big fights) with nothing else running I don't think I can safely record gameplays and such for my coaching sessions or use VOIP functionality without really compromising my play-ability which really sucks.

    How to play league of legends on Linux

    I actually with some troubleshooting was able to get it to work except with performance issues; averaging like 60fps now (but considering I have a 144hz monitor and am used to averaging 260fps on windows that's kinda bad.)

    (pre-2012) Mac Pro case mods?

    I don't have any suggestions but I'd love to see how this turns out if you do a build log or something I'd love to see it.

    I've been thinking of upgrading lately, but my income hasn't been as lucrative as in the past; so I was just curious what are fair estimates for my current build if I were to sell it to help afford a new one? (it's in my signature) like as a whole and piece by piece. $USD preferably, I've gone on ebay for some of the individual parts to get an idea that tells me like $1,000-$1,400 but then again ebay is kind of a crap shoot so I just wanted more opinions. Everything still works about as good as new.

    How to play league of legends on Linux

    Oof I finally got around an Ubuntu install configured the way I'd like; refer back to this guide to get league going and BOOM; "Currently broken on ubuntu and other debian based distros" FEELSBADMAN

    In Linus' recent video about the ANC monitor he mentions his first(and incorrect) assumption that the monitor's microphones might be used to make the users headphones ANC even if they aren't naturally. I've gotta ask, is it possible to do that with any software or hardware solutions? Or even what the monitor does of making your microphone ANC too?

    Can ryzen 5 handle rtx 2060

    An upper/mid range consumer cpu with a mid range consumer graphics card? Perfect match.

    If Windows had a rival, would you switch?

    Well with that in mind; I'm honestly probably gonna try to switch to Linux over the course of the next month or two.

    If Windows had a rival, would you switch?

    You know I saw that guide of yours and I gotta ask how stable/reliable is it (The game not your guide)? Because tbh League is one of the last things I really wanna be able to run on Linux and if I could reliably do so I'd probably make the full dive into the tux community. But I've heard horror stories of it running then crashing and having issues after everypatch which can be as often as every few days.

    Dell Optiplex + RX 460

    Based on random youtubers who have reviewed this card. It plays pretty nicely with HP prebuilts; but not as nicely with Dell prebuilts (like optiplex) so it may give you a few headaches. Dell optiplexes also don't always like AMD cards in general. But you'll never know if you don't try. Best idea is probably buy it, try it, if it doesn't work try a hand full of fixes if it still doesn't work you've just gotta resell it or something.

    How old are your graphics cards?

    R9 Fury X got it shortly after launch.

    would you buy a mining gpu?

    Just check to make sure it works first if possible otherwise go for it. Ive bought a few mining cards in my day and never really had problems with them; a lot of miners take fairly decent care of their cards after all given the fact they bring home the money. I remember when only like a year after release you could get R9 290/290xs for $120-200 on ebay when they were still selling new for $500-700

    Audio Noob with some questions

    2. Any particular reason why? 4. The Gain knob is set to it's lowest setting on the yeti and my software settings are set just low enough I don't get cut off when speaking slightly quieter than normal; yet sometimes it still picks up on like the TV in my living room (my room's right next to the living room) or one of my roommates in their bedrooms.

    Audio Noob with some questions

    As title says; I'm not a big audio guy but due to small issues with my current audio set up I'm debating upgrading so I have a few questions. 1. Is audio equipment like PC building where-in you wanna try to buy everything all at once; or is it okay to go more piece-by-piece? If so is there any particular order that is best? 2. Thoughts on using a combination of the Creative K3+ Audio Interface(as an audio interface/Amp/Dac)? 3. Would it be enough to power an upgrade to HD6XXs from Massdrop/Sennheiser? 4. And also an upgrade to an XLR microphone like the Shure SM58? Reasons for upgrade are; A more sound-based work flow it seems might be coming my way. Also my current Blue Yeti AND my Sennheiser HD518s have issues; The blue yeti's knobs come loose often causing the mic to fall back or even over; and it picks up waay too much. My HD518s keep having an issue with the audio cable; in the roughly 2-3 years I've owned them the cable seems to keep going bad giving audio distortion or just losing use of an ear can until the cord is adjusted in weird fashions or just replaced all together; and I've had to do this 5 times now, 6 if I don't just get new headphones soon; and I've tried different brands, I've tried more from Sennheiser, ect. Doesn't help.
