/pcbg/: Post your component list; rate other anons'; ask questions in general.
>Assemble your parts list with price comparisons & compatibility filter.
>How to assemble a PC, select components & more. (somewhat outdated)
State the PURPOSE of your PC & BUDGET. State COUNTRY if not USA.
List GAMES/SOFTWARE you use often. List resolution & hz if gaming.

>READ PRODUCT REVIEWS to see if that cheap SSD/PSU or whatever is reliable or has the least amount of headache when it comes to RMA; when in doubt, go for the part with the longest warranty
>Figure out what you need your build to do before coming up with a build list in order to get the best value for your dollar - remember, you can always add more or better hardware later if you don't have the money for the parts now
Your core components should include a: CPU, heatsink, motherboard, RAM, storage drive, and a PSU (add in a GPU if your processor doesn't have one built in)
>Make sure to budget for these first and buy them all at once (or within the part's RMA period)
>Take a picture of your build after installing each part or cable! That way you can archive your steps to troubleshoot if something goes wrong!
All you need to POST your build: a CPU, a heatsink, a motherboard, RAM, a PSU, and a screwdriver

AMD only guarantees DDR4-2666 on any AM4 CPU, so any RAM speed higher than that is like going over Kaby Lake's DDR4-2400 specification
>I think it might take up two PCI express slots
Physically, since it will physically block the PCIe slot below it, but that particular motherboard has nothing below the primary x16 slot. All you have there is a x1 on top and a x16 slot right below.
You don't have to worry about losing PCIe slots.
>The only way around this is to upload high bitrate x264-encoded videos at a high quality preset and hope Youtube's reencoding software doesn't fuck things up even more. You'll need to toy around with the settings to get the best possible video quality at the smallest file size, since uploading will take a significant amount of time.
>1080p(60) on twitch
Not happening until you get partnered, which could take time. Your best bet is to stream at 720p 30FPS at the maximum 3500 kbps bitrate allowed by twitch for non-partnered users. That might seem like a downgrade, but it's the highest-quality video setting you can get away with without going below HD.

Just out of curiosity, will the setup you listed earlier have enough power to do the heavy duty stuff once I do get partnered, (assuming I do ) and can it handle encoding high bitrate X24 videos?
messed up my greentext, but you know what i mean
Yes, without a doubt. I'll dare say you could handle two or three 1080p60 9000kbps livestreams and recording at the same time with the 1700X, so you'll still be able to use this build if your channel ever grows large enough to fund a new gaming PC for you.
oh Anon, it only plugs into 1 slot, it's double width in terms of physical scale only, so it could potentially block one but it won't on that.

What are some good, easy to use distros that don't use systemd?
The only people autistical enough to care about systemd are only interested in timesink autist distros

Windows replaced svchost.exe with OpenRC?
PCLinuxOS is probably the most prominent non autist distro without systemd

Wouldn't I need to set every single key for every object in a table like that? or memorize it's slot lay out?

Because if I use Separate Tables for each and keep it consistent

Table Slot 1 is always Card 1
Table Slot 2 is always Card 2
Table Slot 3 is always Card 3

and I can reference any card using a number, so if I want to reference Card 105, I can use the actual/real number 105 to gain access to it throughout the tables.

Weird, I've uploaded 50+ albums and barely have enough buffer to download one FLAC.
I agree, sites should permaban anyone who's less than a power user after a week from joining.
>what is the unsnatched thread?
Retards like you don't belong in private trackers.

No need for it. Just let people upload whenever they need it. Want to download something? Then upload first. No rush, take yourself a year if you want to, just be aware that you won't be able to download more than a certain amount unless you start uploading your own stuff.
>start uploading mainstream stuff

>not using the best distro

I did this one a while ago. Can be easily solved with a recursive function.
Converting to string defeats the purpose of it being a challenge and is slow.
yeah, question 5 is probably the only one I can't do in less than five minutes, and my answer probably wouldn't be particularly nice or good (would probably brute-force it, with a handful of sanity checks for speed)
too lazy to actually do it right now, it's almost 2am

the rest of the problems are fizzbuzz-tier, and if it takes you thirty minutes to do any of them, you should look for a different profession
>1 is literally "do you know how loops work, like at all" (result+=list[ii] in a loop)
>2 is basically "do you know how lists work, like at all" (resultlist.push_back(list1[ii]);resultlist.push_back(list2[ii]) in a loop)
>3 is just "I've told you exactly how this works, put it into actual code" and anyone can implement a fibonacci anyway (if 0 or 1, return 0/1 respectively, if greater, call self with previous two indicies)
>4 can be done lazily by just putting all of the numbers into one big string and then sorting the characters -- there's likely better ways, but that's the zero mental effort answer
this number 5 question was made only to get audience from the readers
