i'm in the processes of building a discord bot that gives techtips to those who ask it.

so i need techtips, lots of em...

it can be anything tech related, from stupid things all the way to actually useful things

i can't host the bot publicly right now but when i have a chance i will host it using a discord bot hosting service where users can submit the techtips themselves and allow you guys to add it to your own discord servers.

thanks guys.

I would add general tips, like "Be sure to use RAM slots 2 and 4", "Don't forget to unlock the PCIE slot before removing your card" and "be careful when removing an AMD CPU cooler you don't rip out the AMD CPU".

  1. Get balanced parts
  2. Get an ssd with dram for boot drive
  3. Dont be a fanboy
  4. Make sure to use a good psu
  5. Dust out your system every so often
  6. Only upgrade when you feel like your performance is lacking, not because something better is available

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

I got a couple.

 

If your computer is power cycling, make sure to reset its BIOS before doing anything else.

 

Remember to buy a good quality Power Supply! Your computer's entire health depends on it.

 

Buying the latest and greatest will not always give you the best value. Look for last gen and used CPUs/GPUs if you want the best bang for buck.

 

Remember to upgrade your monitor if you're going to buy a High-End GPU!

 

Don't forget to turn on XMP on the BIOS to run your RAM at its rated speed.

 

Make sure to run your AIO radiators above the CPU/GPU block for best performance and noise!

 

Be calm. And ALWAYS back up your data.

 

Do NOT buy a Hyper 212 EVO. Buy the updated 212 RGB Black Edition, or a more recent alternative from another company.

 

Remember: gameplay is king.

 

If you're asking for help, be sure to be as detailed as possible to help us help you!

 

-And tons of others that I could think up as I go about my day-

"Remember to have a Graphics Card when buying any Intel F series or AMD non G Ryzen CPUs"

This so much. I'd add

 

Try to choose a well ventilated case. A cool computer is a happy computer.

It's ok if the tech tip you give is a bit small

 

 AMD can be better than Intel and Nvidia sometimes, if you think otherwise you are a dumbass

 

 Gaming laptops aren't worth it at all

 

No do not buy a prebuilt you lazy fuck

 

A&W burgers in the US are shit and you can't say otherwise

Ten Tech Commandments. 

  1. Thou shalt try the website in a different browser or on a different computer before asking why it is not working. 
  2. Thou shalt make sure the monitor and computer are both plugged in before asking why it won't come on. 
  3. Thou shalt not try to rely completely on a phone or tablet for all professional work even if all you need is a web browser trust me that doesn't work out well.
  4. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors setup or its parts for they may not be compatible with your own. 
  5. Thou shalt take breaks from gaming, or working at a computer and go for a 30 minute walk daily. 
  6. Thou shalt not be a fanboy for doing so causes strife upon the Earth. 
  7. Thou shalt not use your tech knowledge to cheat in games since doing so is not really winning. 
  8. Thou shalt keep your work life and personal life separate on your computer with different accounts on some level, at least in your browser. 
  9. Thou shalt not use your real name on any website that does not require it, people can find you but at least make them work for it. 
  10. Thou shalt be sure to honor those you are teleconferencing with by making sure that the camera is off unless it is clearly focused on your face and upper body and /or you are fully and professionally clothed. Lest you be caught lubin your Toobin.

The RX 570 is around the performance level of a GTX 1650. Though a used 580 for $120 is most likely a better option.

 

You or your friend can make a Thread in the New Builds and Planning sub to ask for general advice on a build at that budget :)
