  1. Yes, but it's a bottomless pit of a hobby that will destroy your bank account if you get into it lol.
  2. If you insist on a prebuilt gaming board, yes. Just be aware that the actuation point is very high in the key travel, and combined with the super light switch weight, it is easy to accidentally press keys.
  3. Don't buy it, it's a stupid product.
  4. You said when you turn your PC on it shows the grub menu. That is what I mean. It'll look something like this:
  5. In the grub menu, highlight the kernel you want to use, then press "e". Scroll down to the line that starts with "linux", and if you see the word "quiet", delete it. Then ctrl + x and see if any errors pop up.
  6. Can you try disabling quiet boot if it's not already disabled and see if any errors pop up? Would also try other kernels if you can.
  7. Can you boot into grub? What terminal do you have access to, and what were you doing when your laptop froze?
  8. Both are a sidegrade at best. What board do you currently have, and what is your budget for new switches or a full new board?
  9. When it's not supported even with workarounds/third-party software on a modern OS/programs, but not special enough to keep around as backup or vintage hardware.
  10. MC servers only care about singlecore clockspeed. Build your server around the CPU with the fastest single-core perf you can find.
  11. Depends on the peripheral. I would never buy a new keyboard from a major manufacturer, will always buy mice from Logitech, and always buy headphones from Sennheiser.
  12. Not really. Technically it's possible but it is a massive pain in the ass. You're better off desoldering the board.
  13. If you are turning around by looking to the right: wwwwwwwwwwwwwdssssssssssssssssss If you are turning around by looking to the left: wwwwwwwwwwwwwwassssssssssssssssss
