    Raytracing is an amazing idea but completely useless for casual gamers/consumers. There are not enough games supporting raytracing and the ones that do eat up so much GPU power that its just not worth the money. If you want to do some professional rendering stuff sure, go ahead and buy an rtx card. But you totally don't need it for casual gaming. The difference between good non RTX graphics amd rtx graphics is minimal. In 2 or 3 Years rtx will probably be really interesting but now ots just completely useless unless you play one of the select 5 games that support raytracing AND care enough about some stupid reflections since the rest looks the same with ans without raytracing.

    Navi was hyped up a lot and is an amazing architecture but it's not kicking it enough. The cards cost almost the same as nVidias RTX cards but don't have raytracing. Although raytracing is useless if you can get it for the same price then why not? As said above, wait for the next generation. The competition will fuel the market for better cards and lower prices.

    Depends on the game. Sure, there will be an increase in performance but the question is whether you will notice it. On older games you won't. If you plan on playing the newest games on ultra settings you will see a mentionable difference. A 970 is a decent card, keep it and change when it actually starts to struggle heavily.
    Between these 2 cards the performance gap is depending on the game, the rx 5700 xt will have the upper hand a little bit more often tho.
    Hope I could help you!

    Okay, let me help you out here:
    Totally get a ryzen. I would recommend the Ryzen 5 2600x. Its dropped in prices but still is a killer cpu. Get a cheap gpu, i would recommend an AMD Rx 580 8gb sapphire nitro. 200 Bucks and out performs every 1060 of you have downloaded the newest drivers! Of you don't want a separate gpu go for a ryzen 2 2400g, one of the best APUs out there. DON'T GET AN A10!
    16 gigs of ram aren't mandatory but don't really hurt either so yeah, get em.
    And please, please get an SSD. Doesn't have to be m2, sata is enough as well but an ssd will improve everything sooo much!

    You are absolutely right. If twitch would allow porn then sure, y not. Of not then okay. But they will need to do something, being in the middle and not deciding which route to go is just bad.

    Absolutely. I am running an Ryzen 5 3600 pared with a b450 chipset overclocked to about 3.9ghz. And Boi is it crushing. Rendering, Gaming, Programming... You name it. Its being a blast playing on it. Best thing is: If the game takes up 2 of your cores you still have 2 left for Discord etc. Beats every Intel CPU in that price range by far, overall an amazing chip.

    Sure, ban someone for wearing Gym Clothes or a dress. But Alinity is okay? That's a really weird and unhealthy double standard.

    Thanks a lot! If it has worked for you then it will probably work for me as well. I have never heard of Slackware, but I am sure I will be able to use it. Have a great day!

    Nah, it's fine. An almost 80 year old dude doesn't care about modern slickness or something for a small present out of nostalgia. I think that's a good bet, I will try that one out. Thanks a lot!

    Unfortunately I don't have money left at the moment. He doesn't need any big packages. It's just a fun present. I will try to get that running. I have minimal experience with Linux but I will try my best! In the worst case my father has to dust off his old Linux skills and has to help me. But I think I can get that running.

    I found my grandfathers old PC on the attic and want to revive it for him. He really loved that pc. Sadly that potato barely runs Windows xp so I thought about putting a Linux onto it. My Linux experience is limited to Mimt and Debian, both way to heavy for this old laptop. I need recommendations for a very light weight Linux Distro!

    Specs:
    256 mb DDR1 Ram
    Intel Celeron M 320 @ 1.4GhZ
    40gb Hard Drive

    It's a small, simple gift and nothing where I want to put money into. Also it won't be my granddads daily driver so please don't recommend me a new one (a lot of people did that on other websites so I am rather careful). Thanks in Advance!
