  1. I do have another PSU but I don't want to touch my working rig at this point. If I have issues with RMAs or something I might give that a shot but at that point. Thanks for bouncing ideas btw.
  2. Yes I am thinking the same, except my other mobo is B350 and the CPU is 1600 so there is no way to test them for me at all. If there's no solution (Which I doubt there is but I still wanted to bounce ideas off people) I am still within RMA returns for well, everything so that's no issue I would rather just return CPU, Mobo and GPU and just get some other parts a few months down the line.
  3. Hi. Yes I am back, not planning on staying too much but I think there's some people here who might have ideas. Here's the rig I am working with: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/The_Misanthrope/saved/#view=ZjTfvK Issues: 1) Installed Windows Pro 10 without issues 2) Installed a bunch of software also no issues 3) Sometimes at launch or when displaying large images (Like my 4k wallpaper if I updated it or if the screen refreshed after something) would result in artifacting that goes away after restarting 4) Games ap
  4. There's 2 types of projects and companies working on Linux: 1) Those working on "their own thing and failing" 2) Those getting shit done I agree that the expectation shouldn't be "Cannonical shouldn't be 1) and instead needs to be 2)" but if you recall, my beef was with everybody else in the Linux world assuming Cannonical was a good 2) and investing their projects into their base when they're clearly 1)
  5. Perhaps now it is but it was unnecessary at the time specially in the state it launched initially: a stupid attempt at trying to enter the mobile phone market and you see how THAT turned out. I can't really change your mind when it comes to preference but when it comes to Cannonical as a company the record speaks for itself.
  6. It's been what, 15 years? But I feel an "I fucking told you so" is warranted here: all those other distros should have avoided fucking with Ubuntu and instead work off Debian instead. Which by the way it should still be an option. It will imply quite a bit of development but hey, MX Linux (Debian based) did it right it's about time they share the top spot with Manjaro (Arch based)
  7. Sure it's not like transphobia has real world repercussions. (Also notice the dates, these are all current news)
  8. "Everything is sexist, everything is racist and you have to point it all out" - Most famous quote taken seriously when the context was specifically to self-deprecate about that very attitude.
  9. "The critics are wrong" is such a shit take honestly: it puts Liberal against Liberal in a competition of "Who's got the most social capital" (i.e. Followers and media attention) to "win" the argument. I am sure there can be legit criticism and legit points to be made for or against the game, once it is out for more than a few individuals invested in creating a fake controversy for publicity are involved. However as we have learned from a certain feminist youtuber that shall remain nameless, one can be critical of a medium while enjoying said medium anyway. Even if it seems as "des
  10. I'd be willing to throw a symbolic buck at them for keeping things ad free after Google has taken a turn for the worst with Chrome (possibly) And no please do not try to make "web sites can't survive without ads!" argument at me: by Capitalists standards, most websites that can't survive with tasteful add integration that doesn't ruins the experience simply shouldn't fucking exist whenever it's some random dude's skater pictures or the WSJ ads can fuck off.
  11. I honestly do not expect a price drop at all since Nvidia would rather just confuse consumers with a bunch of in-between tiers but even if we end up being wrong about that, it probably can't hurt to wait like a couple more weeks anyway: I'd wait just long enough to get official pricing and third party benchmarks to see if a new tier makes more sense but I still wouldn't regret a 2080 today: it is close enough to 1080ti to be ok for moderate 4k (read: anything 4k but the most intensive games probably not maxed 4k just decent one from the top settings) and it has enough support for RTX for when
  12. Why would you report on this before you steal a bunch of personal nudes to show the world how celebrities are usually not anywhere nearly as good looking as even entry level sex workers?! But yeah it's not surprising that it is happening after what we've seen in recent years: I just hope it has a similarly strong effect on Apple as it did on Intel but not expecting that to be the case tbh unless there's another massive leak as I joked above.
  13. Aye. More important: we have any word on how they're doing the processing for this? Because the fact that Facebook, the company that has the most active devices worldwide, wants to back this up makes me think they're interested in just very silently put most phones and computers to "mine" for it, except not mining cause you won't get shit but they still need processing power available. Up until now I've been pretty tame in not getting rid of Facebook (Culturally it is very different here in *.mx since people is almost unheard of and socially it is kinda the base require
  14. Less options for tax avoidance is still better than more options for it. Establishing a shadow office in Malta might work to avoid bulk of the taxes but it isn't cheap to constantly on the move.
  15. I'd like to say "About time" but consider the implications: main issue with putting the breaks on technology is actually not any kind of consumer or even corporate market. It's military tech that will escalate things quickly. If China hasn't gone for the kill so to speak with their control of minerals yet is because the response would be well, excessive yet expected: Americans are lead by deeply prejudiced people so if regular "neoliberals" with a conscience (Spoiler: not a thing) had no problems with wars to protect strategic interests then current administration would basically d
  16. Well besides the entire "Worst person you know just made a great point" deal, I'd love for chief orange glow to have a go at Verizon for still using anything Huawei: It'd be a fairly different thing to try to play hard-ass with a huge company with money and power on your own backyard instead.
  17. If you have to do it this is the best way to install, but if you can but another 2x4gb that's even better. But yes: check the motherboard manual to make sure you install the current pair on the same channel
  18. Ideally no: the "dual channel" part of DDR means that it needs sticks to be in pairs (hence, dual) to enable full performance. How important is RAM speeds? Varies a lot, we'd need to go into the rest of your rig stats and use cases but if you can help it at all, get another 2x4 instead: As long as you keep the second pair of sticks on their own channel it should be better (Not ideal, but better) than 2x4 + 1x8 This is talking DIMMS of course, I know SO-DIMMS are a whole different story since laptops are more limited in the available SO-DIMM slots and such but for a desktop pick DDR
  19. This is already pretty good I think so most of the comments are just tweaks but here we go: 1) If you want wait like less than a month at this point, the Ryzen 3600 looks to be a pretty significant bump up but that's just an aside: 2600 is already pretty good at gaming anything with the only exception being extremely high refresh rate low detail gaming (So if that's your thing then intel might be worth it and a good "in between" compromise might end up being the 3600 I mentioned) (EDIT: Also I specifically said "high refresh low detail gaming" because at your budget you probably wo
  20. Minimum wage is accompanied by standard 40 hours per week. Again I know you find it nonsensical but that's because there's very little in the way of establishing what should be the work ours per week. Most other places establish them as 40 and make businesses increase rate after 40 hours per week also increasing rates on night shift and on Sundays for example. Calculating minimum wage per hour leaves the door open for unfair amount of hours instead of also establishing the reasonable hours (40/week or 160/month) along with minimum wage. We even go beyond that and establ
  21. Actually hour/annual rate are a distinctly American things most of the rest of the world divides rates between week and month rates for the most part since well, lots of services like rent, utilities, etc. You pay for monthly or bi-monthly.
  22. Not sure you should be working at 14. I get why you might need to or why you might feel like you want to start working already: I wanted shit at that age too yet I was old enough to realize just demanding shit from my parents was unreasonable and put a significant economical strain on them but you need to become resourceful. Try public libraries if they have PCs at all, maybe check the newspapers to see people just throwing away old but functional PCs, etc. It's no fun but trying to get by with no money is probably more important than getting a job right now: trust me when I say yo
  23. True, yet I think a single thunderbolt dock might be convenient enough to not having to wait for wireless displays too much. This can add in monitor, peripherals, charging and even local storage so the "work" stuff stays at works which is something that's also going to be meet with some resistance for some stuck-in-the-past companies and their policies (There are many places that for example still flat out refuse practical and cost saving measures like telecommuting because of their unwillingness to address their policies regarding employees handling company data, I know, ridiculous given how
