Ryzen 5s are less than two weeks away. Dumping anything into i7s right now is throwing your money away.

Even if i7s don't drop in price after the 5s come out, you at least won't have to deal with delidding your i7 after OC'ing it or needing a new motherboard if you want to upgrade the next few years.

i7s are a fucking meme.

Doesn't matter for people that want the very best for gayman. The 7700/7700k still outperforms the 1600X in the vast majority of current games.

Ryzen 5 will be the best for the money, but not the best period.

I type 100+ words a minute but I follow my own technique. Mistakes are rare but I do several at a time when it happens. Is there any hope for me to learn typing where I use the correct finger for each key or can I not unlearn what I do now?

That's a myth. Modern empirical studies have found no great difference between the speeds of qwerty and Dvorak users.

Proper form is a meme. If you can type fast then keep doing what you're doing, unless you look at the keyboard like a toddler.

>I type 100+ words a minute

same here. I use my own system aswell. Its fucking stupid i guess but it just werks so why even bother?! Theres no point for us in learning a "more efficient" system cause we are so fast already tbqh.

This only makes sense when you are a non touch typing brainlet who types at 30 WPM and wants to improve to 60 or smth with a system.

No idea why you would tripfag, it is truly pathetic, I feel bad for you. Nobody is "obsessed" with you, that is just your sad desire for some sort of attention getting to your head. People just see your name and trip and are annoyed.

You can't give a reason to be a tripfag other than that you want attention.

I too hate you, and hope you diaf.

Their face when AMD is soldering the IHS on 14nm 8 core and 16 core processors.
Intel on suicide watch.
>>
>>59632624
I read the paper on why Intel was cracking the solder.
They made no attempt to try different solders.
All focus was on reducing the gold content.
The edge cracking was also minute. They had more thermal problems by switching to paste than the cracks were causing.
It was purely a move for saving a few shekels on manufacturing. The same reason they don't have pins anymore. Forcibly making Mobo makers to foot the bill.

If I wanted to install the same thing on multiple computers yes, a script is simple and only proves my point that you would want to know the commands.


we've already proven you can't do everything from the graphical installer and need to use some commands to do it so what's the point?

I use a command line to type the commands I want because a graphical installer can't. I know what commands to type because I read the man pages. I'm not superior to you. I don't give a shit how you install or how often you install your operating system. You just can't do some things with a GUI.
