So I recently used the 3DMark to benchmark my PC with Firestrike. Turns out a score of 8700 is pretty shit on the percentiles.
Basically what I'm asking is, should I be upgrading my old i5 2500 to a i5 4690 + ?
If not, see anything bottlenecking my shit? Or is it me being a poorfag the issue
I just bought a i5 - 2500 (non k, used) for 90€
LGA 1155 mobo (new) for 50€
8Gb RAM (new) for 35€
Was the processor a good deal for such a setup?
Please consider that german ebay fucks you over with motherboard prices for older CPUs.
No name LGA775 or 1156 boards in a shit condition sell for 80€+ while 1155 can still be bought for an okay price NEW.
And I dont want to spend WAY more money on a shitty motherboard than the CPU. (Q6600 sitting at 20€ used)
Hey /g/. I'm trying to decide between arch linux and gentoo. Discuss pls.
i have a limited budget, mostly for office use, maybe, maybe, some light gaming. im torn between the weak zenbook, the i3 lenovo yoga,(both aluminum) vs a plastic acer with an i5 and a 940m
If you're a clumsy fucking idiot, aluminum.
If you still have your Compaq Contura Aero from 1999 in mint condition because you slide it into your bag and secure it instead of throwing it around like a frisbee, then get the Acer. There are no problems with even cheap laptops if you treat them properly.
>please go with the acer
I wouldn't ever go with Acer. Cheap shitty laptops with trackpads and keyboards that mysteriously lag or drop out.
Get a used business tier laptop (thinkpad, elitebook, or some other equivalent from other brands).
Wtf is this? Just happened out of nowhere on my Moto G
Why is Swype so shitty? Typos every other fucking word.
>The Witch brown fix humid over the last dog
dem dubs and trips
I've been using Swype ever since I got a smart phone, since I thought it'd help me type faster. I think tapping -> word prediction might actually be faster than swiping and correcting. I haven't tried it out since I don't use my phone much, but most people I know seem to type faster than me on their phone.
Why are you even using swipe? You can't touch type on a phone in 2015? I can get up to 60 WPM on a good day typing on my phone in portrait mode.
Why are you not using comfy Xfce /g/?
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
it doesnt matter anymore, you arent going to notice the difference in speed or latency.
the only time you would go for a higher speed is if you are going to overclock, but even then its not really a requirement
lower CAS number is better but nobody really gives a shit anymore.
buying 2x4GB sticks is a bit dated, you might as well go 2x8 now. i mean i'm still running 2x4 and it's fine but i want to get into ramdisk shit in the future so 8GB isn't gonna cut it.
Did this come out yet?

Which build should I get and why?
The AMD build costs more, and will use more power, but will it perform better?
