  1. Thanks for the info. I actually installed the LTS edition of Ubuntu before seeing this post. I was able to get the drivers from the AMD site for my 5700x for Linux and installed them. If anything, I'm running at my preferred resolution at 144hz. So... seems good for now? I dont plan on gaming on Linux, just with my windows partition. Maybe if I played games it would be different.
  2. So I just built a new rig (shameless self-promotion here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/q9gwrH) with the intent to play games and program. I haven't done much pc gaming over the past few years, so I'm looking for recommendations. I think the last sci-fi game I played was Mass Effect 3. I'm looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077, but are there any games that are coming out soon, or recently released that are sci-fi / space games? I currently have Battletech (big fan) and I like RPGs and some strategy games. I'm also open to other games you might want to
  3. Hey all. I recently built a new PC. EDIT!! Holy godzilla, this thread kinda blew up. So I ended up installing Ubuntu, and it's working well for me. In the end, it was really the only version that made sense for me. I'm still fairly new to Linux (though not the command line). Furthermore, my company uses Ubuntu for many of its servers, so it made sense to use something similar for personal / work usage. I read through the replies here. Thanks for the discussion. I'm gonna close this thread if I can, since my question has basically been answered at this point. Thanks for your he
  4. Imgur gallery: https://imgur.com/gallery/wDQRjiv So this is the first pc I've built in some years, and it's also my first AMD PC. I've been an Intel guy until this point; I couldn't ignore how well AMD has been performing with their latest generation. I built this system for a couple reasons. I needed a backup work pc (my main workhorse is a 2014 MacBook Pro) and I also wanted to build something in preparation for Cyberpunk 2077; though it looks like a couple other games are out there that I'm very interested in. Ryzen 3600, MSI B450 Mortar MAX, Adata ram and two M
  5. So I've looked at your document that you provided. I'm thinking of building an M-ATX system, considering that I want something smaller than ATX but not as small as M-ITX. What do you think of the Bazooka Plus or the Mortar Titanium? Both are B450-M boards from MSI and they seem to be the best of the lot. I might be able to find one of those here as well.
  6. I’m in this process as well and I’ve decided to get two ssds, one for dual boot windows and Linux, the other for storage. so... take that as you will. I find programming easier in Linux so maybe you will too?
  7. Like saying you get unlimited internet access, then the fine print states that "unlimited" actually means "up to a certain amount of gigs" and then "throttled to 256kbs" after that. lol.
  8. Cool! Didn't know that, thank you. Is there any instance where using EXT4 would be more beneficial on the Linux side of things? Or does it even matter?
  9. First, I'm not sure if this is the proper forum to ask this question, so please let me know if I need to ask somewhere else. I'm building a new system, and want to dual boot Windows 10 and Linux; the former for gaming, the latter for programming and other work related tasks. What's the better option here? Should I go for two SSDs for a dual boot option? How do I configure them properly? If I do go for two SSDs, can I look at saved files across both SSDs regardless of the OS being used? For example, if I edit a UX/UI design in Windows, and then want to reference it while using L
  10. This is a good point, and I don't actually bother overclocking my system. I never have in the past, and I don't really see a reason to do so now. So do you think putting that money towards the motherboard to get an x570 would be a good idea, even if I don't overclock? Also, I'm going to update my original thread. I left a few things out that I probably should have mentioned, now that I think about it.

  12. The US gets screwed when it comes to cellular data (and I assume other western countries do too). In Taiwan, I pay about 15 bucks a month for unlimited data at high speeds with no throttling. And that's on the expensive side. In mainland China, I was paying about 40 RMB per month for unlimited 4g data. No throttling. Wanna know how much that is in USD? About 8 bucks.
