Cancelled it and got some 3200.
first get a decent cooler (like cryorig h7) and oc the shit out of 2500k (at least 4.3ghz). atm you're just wasting its potential.

then you can think about the 480/580. there shouldn't be a bottleneck, but it all depends on a game. seeing you're still on 1366x768 you'd be more than fine with rx570, unless you want to upgrade your monitor (check out freesync).

you can oc your ram (google how to do it) though it won't give you much of a noticeable difference.

your psu should handle it easily
How long until the new ryzen chips? 2700, 2800x, etc.
This time next year?

google "raven ridge amd cpu"

So what's the point of CentOS or Fedora ?
Looks like you have more packages and more help on a DEB distro.
This is why I use stripped down distros like Devuan netinstall and then install all the programs that I know instead of preconfigured distros which tools have the risk of being too integrated to be mixed together.
The hard part is to know exactly the names of the programs that I want, install them by separate is not so hard.

Check Webmin to see what I mean.

>Microsoft is now seen as a more innovative company compared to Apple

How did this happen?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
As someone not very in the loop, how is MS seen as more innovative now?

Not jumping to Apple's defense, but what exactly besides your own opinion are you basing this on?
What grand innovations has Apple made in the last few years?

They have just been making their devices thinner. Popularising fingerprint readers in phones was the last sort of big thing they did that caught on and that was 4 years ago.

The emoji bar on their laptops is laughable.
In fact they've made a lot of backwards steps with their laptops considering all the port retardation and that horrible shallow keyboard.

Even fanboys on their forums are starting to whine.
But they removed the headphone jack.. COURAGE!

I went back to return a tape that I rented the other day and the store wanted to charge me a fee because I forgot to rewind it first, is that really standard practice? Managed to get the guy to waive it after I argued for a half hour and eventually got the manager involved, but it seems like bullshit to me. Don't they have some machine they can use for that or something?
That's standard, because it would be far too much of a bother for them to do it on all the tapes. As such they make it a policy with an associated fee. If they started making exceptions, eventually everyone would demand and/or abuse the exception.

I've done two builds in cases like these, one in a Silverstone sg11b, which was a fucking nightmare.
Its a matx case but it was definitely still "large shoebox" size. Lots of vents, but it was too low.
There's two mounts for 80mm exhaust fans above where the gpu goes.
But if you have a gpu in there only one fan fits, even with a slim one the second 45° mount can't fit a fan.
The psu was right over the cooler and there's no vents above the psu so you can't flip it, meaning you have the cpu cooler fan and the psu fan sucking air from the same spot, starving both.
With a bequiet shadowrock lp I had 7mm of space between them.
It was also not worth the 80$ I paid in terms of build quality, the metal edges were sharp, internally not painted, no cable management possible whatsoever, and the cover for it all was fucking impossible to fit over the frame correctly.

A much better one was my sisters little Athlon 5350 + 750ti build in a cooler master elite 110.
That Is a good mitx case. Psu can be flipped, ample room above it, room above the gpu, plenty of space for the cooler.
Only downside was drive placement, but with a single 2.5" ssd that was also easy peasy. It even has room for a 120mm AIO with full width fans.
And its definitely small. The psu sticks out the back about 3/4 of an inch so there's room inside for even non modular power supplies.
but thats just a wide matx tower
The point is that the motherboard tray is horizontal mate.
case is cringey as fuck
>I cannot think of any downsides to this

Box has to be as wide as the board

>Less PCI slot stress from heavy GPUs
That's why you screy your GPU into the PCI slots in the back of the case.

Honestly, there actually are a lot of ITX cases that are horizontal, corsair, thermaltake, case labs, Antek, and Lian Li, are just a few manufacturers that have one that I can think of off the top of my head

>Google (originally)

? Just because it is popular doesn't mean it is shit, you fucking retards
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Python is easy and popular, the two things /g/ hates most in software. A big part of the hate comes from CS grads resentful that it's so much less obnoxious than whatever language that they were forced to learn.

In the industry, where people see languages as tools instead of lifestyle choices or badges of honour, Python is overwhelmingly loved.
Python is the current generation's BASIC
Lua is superior

is OOP literally a joke? Everything I accomplished with classes I could have done literally by just thinking a bit more carefully about how I wrote everything. Yea thats more effort, but more effort is required if you wanna make something good

>Is wrong and only said by idiots failing to properly teach OOP.
The problem is that there are so many of them. And not only amongst teachers, but there are many people who truly believe in it and try to apply it in practice.
>Also, Python was never meant to be used for OOP, it originally started happening as a shitty interpreter hack and eventually gained "real" support.
In February 1991, van Rossum published the code (labeled version 0.9.0) to alt.sources.[10] Already present at this stage in development were classes with inheritance
>its taking longer to write
That is why OOP exists, it's generally much faster to work with.
$a = new File("animu.png");



All OOP does is double the workload and improve nothing. It's fucking pointless.
Anything OOP can do can be done in a header file.
