Post your component list, rate other anons', and ask questions in general.

Always state the purpose of your PC, your budget, AND YOUR COUNTRY if outside the USA.
If you are asking for improvements, clarify whether you want to lower price or to improve specs or build quality.

Assemble your parts list; built-in price comparisons by vendor and a compatibility filter.

Exceptionally stupid question, lads.
I'm building a pc for a family member. They don't game, but they want a 27" 1440p monitor for the space, or something. They wouldn't be using the pc for anything particularly special, no graphic design, no professional audio stuff.
Would the HD 630 igpu be sufficient for normal use on a 1440p 60hz monitor, or should I add on a cheap gpu like a 460 or something? I've read that it's possible to use the igpu if the mobo has dual link dvi, but would it work fine in all office-use-type circumstances? How about in 5 years (they want this built to last)?

The 1700x already delivers in singlethread and outperforms in multithread
The 1600x is the same shit but with less cores

video editing and streaming are when you're going to appreciate those extra cores more, in terms of gaming the games that scale for more cores only gain you 5 -7 fps. so if you want to game and shitpost you're fine.

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or Mac.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Be aware that hacks exist that allow programs to break out of VMs. VMs are basically secure, but nothing is 100% secure. I'd also secure the VM itself (especially when you allow networking).

Multithreading is achieved in 2 levels.
1) Software level: optimizing the overall software architecture and or compilers (in some rare instances)
2) Hardware level: schedulers, branch predictors prefetchers and whatever magic happens in the l1,l2 and l3 cache.

Pic related is quake 2 demo (3.14) running on a i7 2600K. Why o why does it runs on 2 threads?
