Biggest of thank you's to the Elite Dangerous community-Poizen22

Greetings Cmdr's of the elite dangerous community,
As some of you may be aware my family and I were victims of a house fire this last September 18th. I wanted to offer an update on the situation from beginning to current to give everyone an update, thank them for what they have done for my family and, I and lay a few rumors to rest.
Since then it has been a tremendous 3 month long journey of emotions, suffering, and generosity. Its been a roller coaster to say the least. There was the initial shock of experiencing it all and loosing everything we owned, I spent a day in hospital for carbon monoxide exposure. Everything was uncertain for us it wasn't great. There have been two things that have helped me get through this series of events, the First is the woman I love so much I have become engaged to, the second has been this community of players along with my Black Lance Mercenaries.
Not long after the fire a friend of mine I met through Elite Dangerous Who I became good friends and now know IRL saw what I was going through and decided he wanted to put his online personality to use and start a fundraiser for my wife and I to assist in anyway he could with the endeavor. This was not something I asked him for and the idea of it had my fiance and I in tears from the idea of such generosity, as our friend also knew I had just recently lost work in August (Ncix my former employer also just filed for bankruptcy December 1st a few days ago) and burned through all my savings with veterinary hospital bills this last February when our dog became ill.
What followed was the greatest collective act of generosity I have ever received from a community of acquaintances than I have ever received before in my life. His stream and the generosity of this community raised us 2400$ Canadian. This gesture was beyond the generosity my fiance and I could have imagined. Elite Dangerous community thank you you helped a man and his future wife get through an incredibly tough time. The money helped My fiance and I actually live, help me look for work and try and resemble even the slightest bit of normal life. The money was used to purchase clothes, bedding, Prescription medications our "Canadian health care" didn't cover, toiletries, toothbrushes, put a repair into our 2003 Hyundai SUV that could of got me pulled over especially with all the extra driving living out of our car at first. Clothing, haircut and a shaver for myself to look for work, resumes being printed and fuel and parking going to all the interviews.(I found a part time job 2 weeks ago BTW) and another bloody vet bill. When you loose every essential in your life and are unemployed and have to replace every essential you need the 2400$ got us through about the first month And I Honestly couldn't be more thankful because I have no idea how we would have gotten through without you guys. About another month since then has passed and we have had a few updates. We were finally able to put forward an insurance claim after close to a month of issues with the claim contents. The house has started a slow rebuild the entire thing was stripped down to the inner studs to be odor sealed. and is only finishing getting dry wall up. still need floors on all floors and refinishing of the kitchen (cabinets and such) and are only finding out now we still will not be in our home for Christmas until likely the new year.
The next event was our insurance claim has gone through, and were approved for our claim, I also want everyone to know we didn't place any claims for items we replaced with money raised through the community fundraiser as we felt that wasn't fair to our insurance or the community of people who helped us out we weren't in this to benefit from anything but only have our old life back. I actually used tons of the advise several people sent me personal messages about on how to handle insurance claims and inventory and price our possessions to minimize our loses this alone was incredible help.
I have since repurchased and assembled a computer I am unbelievably happy to have again, due to the price of hardware inflation from bitcoin miners on mid to high mid range components and some good black Friday sales I was able to afford a few upgrades that more or less equate to the stuff just being newer than my old 4770k system. I have forgone some of the things I had as well to make better purchasing decisions this time around. With a new computer and the ability to return to playing with a community that has supported me and been there for me so much these last 3 months makes this week one of the most exciting moments its been all year for me. I had heard that a few people had questions about what was going on and understandably so as I have been super up and down with my emotions and I wanted to set some facts straight for everyone, so thanks for taking the time to read.
For this generosity all I can do is to say thank you and contribute to this community the same way they did for me when the opportunity arises for me to return the favor. I have been through a rough time but I have learnt a lot about people including the fact that Elite Dangerous has the best community of people I have ever had the pleasure of playing a game with and that I Want to be there for its members when the times comes.
Cant wait to fly with all of you again will give you an update when I am home. o7 o7 o7 Cdmr's Poizen22

$1500-$2000 USD scientific workstation

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Primary: Scientific Workstation
Software includes -
-> computationally expensive MATLAB
- CUDA-enabled GPU computing for MATLAB
-> computationally expensive quantum chemistry/DFT software
- Examples of software - I want to be able to do GPU-assisted simulations as well
- VASP - has GPU support
-> computationally expensive FDTD software
- Lumerical FDTD Solver - commercial software (I have a license) that apparently does not support GPU support; seems the main bottleneck is memory bandwidth and not processing power
gsvit - open source FDTD with GPU support
Secondary: Gaming, Cryptocurrency (Etherium, Bitcoin mining)
I figure the workstation specifications will more than cover the computer's ability to do these, but I wanted to mention these all for completeness sake.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)
1080p 60fps on high/ultra is good, but if the performance is possible wouldn't mind getting into 4k down the road. I mainly play Blizzard games and Minecraft right now, but may get into Destiny 2.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
$1500-$2000, but variable.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
United States

Provide any additional details you wish below.
As I mentioned, the primary purpose of this computer will be as a scientific workstation. I don't intend for it to be servecluster quality, but rather a strong desktop computer (duel Windows/Linux boot) that can run some relatively small, computationally expensive simulations and software in a reasonable amount of time, before larger projects/assignments are created for running on a computing cluster.
My main concerns are reducing bottleneck - I want to be able to run both CPU and GPU-intensive software in a balanced way, meaning I'm not skimping on the GPU for a better CPU and vice versa. I realize it could be difficult to compare
Some specific questions I have:
1) According to Intel's site, the max RAM speed supported by the i7-7700k is DDR4-2400. How does one use RAM with a higher speed? Do you need a Xeon processor? Also, I'm looking at 32 GB RAM.
2) For my purpose, should I definitely get a Z270? I read somewhere that it has a better memory controller than the Z170, but not sure about this.
3) How does the 1080 compare to 2x 1070? Or a 1080 Ti? For CUDA and for cryptocurrencies? I don't know too much about these from a computer hardware perspective, but am interested in learning more.
Thank you!

A couple of articles say that Nvidia and AMD are preparing to launch stripped down Bitcoin mining GPUs

Hexus article

Couple of Questions on Ethereum (New)

First of all, yeah, Austin Evans really hit a big crowd with his new video. If this is anything close to Bitcoin, get ready for difficulty increase.
So, after following two guides, I'm in the process of setting up Geth to mine. I couldn't figure out how to download Ethminer, so now I'm looking at other options. My questions are down below. Thanks!
How long can Geth take to set up? I've been running it for hours, and I've heard days possibly. Why choose Geth to mine? Is it because it won't charge a fee or something? Or maybe because of the simplicity of it being some kind of source code program? (Sorry if I seem stupid; I'm a little new to this and I'm trying to learn.) Other than Geth, what better options are there? I've heard of "MinerGate" and "Claymore DualMiner" (Thanks NCIX). Will these other systems charge some type of fees? They seem easier to set up and don't take as much time, but that's to the untrained eye. If I don't have to worry about electricity (moving into a dorm in a month where I don't have to pay utilities), I assume a Zotac 1080 graphics card should do the trick? Other than that, thanks for helping!

I am in love with my build so far. With that being said I would really appreciate it if some of the veteran/experienced builders on this sub would comment on my build to see if everything is okay.
Here are some side things to note. The only part that is most likely going to be different is my case. I REALLY want this case http://amzn.com/B00I44ES4I (NZXT H440) but for some reason on pcpartpicker it isn't listed as a compatible case for some reason. It looks fine to me but can anyone explain why? My guess is because on pcpartpicker it says the Ext. 5.25" has the value of zero but I am not so sure what that means. If I really can't get this case then I am fine with settling with the one I already have listed.
On another note. I will be purchasing ALL of my parts with Bitcoin off of http://purse.io. Purse is essentially a platform where I can buy anything off of Amazon with Bitcoin at a discount.I will be able to discount each item from around 10-30% so this build will be a lot cheaper than normal. I would list the pcpartpicker table with only Amazon prices but most of these items don't have Amazon prices through pcpartpicker.
NOTE: You do not have to follow this format, but please be sure to answer these questions. Please do not ask to simply be given a build. You are welcome to delete this section.

I'm having trouble choosing between 2 motherboards. I like the extra SATA slots for future expansion, because my understand is using M.2 can disable some SATA slots (can someone help me figure out if I use one M.2 in PCIE mode if I will get any sata disabled on either of these mobos?). I also like the idea of the 5 gbps LAN.
Asus MAXIMUS IX FORMULA ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

10 Sata slots, and a 5gbps LAN card
If I don't plan on overclocking my CPU, should I bother with the water cooler?
I am also open to any other feedback.

[Build Ready] Never built a PC, looking for advice

After asking on some other forums and looking at various articles, I have picked out a tentative parts list. I figured I would ask for some second opinions from a different forum before I started the actual shopping.
Some things to note;
Budget: My original budget was 800-1200 USD -- this includes OS/peripherals/monitoaccessories and maybe a chair if I have the money leftover for it. I already have a Samsung LCD TV for big picture stuff. I thought this was a good range for the performance that I want (though I could be wrong). It looks like I'm going to be over after the aforementioned extras, but I'm not that fussed since my TF2 pack is basically paying for everything.
I'm not overclocking (don't need it), but I did pick some overclock-ready parts since they weren't that much more expensive. This is going to be my only computer for a while, and I was advised that overclocking later can increase PC lifespan
Purpose: gaming, with some movies and light schoolwork (typing etc.). I'm not going to be rendering video, streaming, or any other intensive activities. I also heard bitcoin mining was no longer profitable due to electricity costs.
Benchmark games: Titanfall, Evil Within, Borderlands; The Pre-Sequel(split screen), Metro: Redux, etc. I'm going to be playing a mix of new and old releases, and I don't need maximum settings or 200 FPS. This is going to be my only computer for a while, however, so the more stuff it can handle, the better.
Previous computer building experience: zero (unless you count that one middle school project). I did watch that newegg youtube tutorial and read that one reddit guide, but other than that I'm still pretty new to this.
Other notes: Space is not a concern. I have a decently sized desk and won't be moving any time soon.

[First Post] I was referred to Reddit.

Hello Redditors!
I was referred here by a floor mate of mine, she said, 'Reddit is the place to go if you ever need ANYTHING.' She made sure to emphasis the anything part.
I recently bought a complete desktop off of a fellow on Craigslist. (The guy I bought it off of is in the United States Army, and he had to literally sell it quick while he was in town. He was being shipped off to California, and was just going to throw it away if he didn't sell it.)
He was asking $75.00 for the complete setup, which I thought was decent. I emailed him an offer of $50.00, knowing his hardware was a little dated. After approximately 12 days of going back and forth, I finally was able to meet this guy and complete the exchange.
He gave me a monitor, tower, router, mouse, keyboard all for $40.00; he shaved $10.00 off for it being Christmas and all when we met. Here is a little more detail about each of the individual items.
The Monitor - It's an eMachines monitor, running 1366x768 with a 60Hz refresh. Great condition.
The Tower - It's an eMachines ET1331G-05w Model. This tower is different though, it has 2 HDDs (750GB and 200GB) and a discrete graphics card! (ATI Radeon HD 5450, to be exact.) It's running Windows 7, and I haven't used it for anything besides general web browsing and light BitCoin mining.
The Router - It was a brand spanking new NETGEAR N900 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter, and it works great! (I was looking in stores, and it was $60.00 or so brand new!)
The Keyboard - I believe it to be the stock eMachines keyboard, nothing special. It has the Volume controller at top, with a sleep button on the right.
The Mouse - It's just a Microsoft optical mouse from what I can tell about it.
So, for a grand total of $40, I don't believe I did that bad for what I got. Allow me to get back on track with why I posted here...
My friend told me that I'd be able to get help here with building a more up-to-date computer. She explained how it's cheaper and I'd get a better computer for my dollar. I saw that there was this part of Reddit -> /buildapcforme - I don't want someone else to build my computer for me.
So, instead of going that route, I am going to propose a build and get some feedback on it.
I plan on making this the central-hub for just about everything.... Gaming, Movies, Music, Work, etc... I run Photoshop, NetBeans, Eclipse, and so much more!

I feel more comfortable with AMD, because it's all I have ever used. I also like the idea of EyeFinity.
TL/DR -> What are your thoughts Reddit? Does my AMD Build look good? Does the Intel build look good?
Current Score
AMD - 1 Intel - 2

I recently bought a 2nd 7950 (same exact card) but have yet to put it in my system since i would need a more powerful power supply. My question is, should i sell my 7950's and use the money from that and what i saved by not buying a new power supply to buy a 780? I currently use my computer for a decent amount of gaming on 2 1080p monitors and also do quite a bit of video editing on Adobe Premiere CC (which takes advantage of dual GPU's). I should mention, I also have been considering Bitcoin mining, but do not know anything about it or if it is worth it. Power use is also a concern for me since I will be moving into an apartment not too far into the future where I will have to pay the electricity bill (currently live in a dorm where that is included) and I am kind of tight on money.
So should I keep the 7950's and buy a power supply or sell them and get a 780?

[Build Help] Upgrading 2009 CPU/New second build!

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
I want a PC to start trading forex, web development, graphic design, play games. Pretty much an important part of my business and personal life. I have just set up a 4 monitor station however this 2009 PC is running very slow and hot. Really want to be able to continue that and have a fast, strong computer.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, FPS, game settings)
Mainly play League of Legends or starcraft 2 or anything from steam library. Resolution I am currently running 3 monitors at 1920x1080. Want to run games at 60fps at High/Ultra quality.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
I want to spend around $1,000. Probably reuse some old parts. I feel I need to update the CPU, Motherboard, Memory, Case & SSD.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
Canada
Post a draft of your potential build here (specific parts please). Consider formatting your parts list. Don't ask to be spoonfed a build (read the rules!).

Changes: 1) First change I had was i had a corsair tx750 and it was making quite an annoying coil whine. Corsair had very good customer service and accepted my RMA and had a new one back to me shortly. However instead of continuing to use that power supply I picked up the xfx on sale for around $89 down from its much higher regular price. I then sold the corsair to pay for new power supply.
2) Added some case fans. Added 2 blue coolermaster fans because there was a good sale on them. I'm not to focused on CPU overclocking anymore so i stuck them on the CPU cooler for a nice cool effect. Also added a delta fan. IT.IS.LOUD. But that's why you buy it. It creates a massive amount of air flow and i needed that for the summer heat.
3) Added sleeved cable extensions. These things are great! They allowed me to get my cpu power behind the mobo as before a 8 pin connector wouldn't fit around the top, but with the cord having a 4+4 instead, it was able to go through the back. Also allowed me to get the motherboard cable behind tray as the xfx's motherboard cable is very short. They look awesome and improve air flow.
4) Added a second 7950. I wanted to do a little bit of bitcoin mining so I decided to pick up a second card. As the card was running too hot i moved it down a slot. While i no longer have crossfire, temps dropped about 15C.
Some advice: If you dont need something right away. Look for a sale! Sales saved me so much money on this build! Im glad i waited for sales instead of buying right away.

[Build Ready] First draft for an End-All PC, looking for last minute input

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Indeed
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
I want to be able to 3d model (Solidworks, Blender, Sketchup), video edit (Adobe creative cloud), do distributed computing (protein folding/maybe bitcoin for the lolz), get ALL of the FPS in games, music creation (Ableton Live) and watch 21x9 porn (jk)
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, FPS, game settings)
100+ FPS at 3440x1440 with everything cranked
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
$5,500 USD. Ended up paying less than I thought I would for a new car, and since I'm financially stable I figured I'd throw it into the dream build I have never been able to have until now
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
AMERICA (F**K YEAH)

I told my friend about this and he suggested I come here, I've always kind of lurked on Reddit a bit but never made an account until now. Thanks for your input, guys! I'm super excited to get this finalized. I'd really like to stay with the Enthoo Luxe and I'm pretty sure these are the best parts I can get for the money, but let me know. Thanks a lot! Hopefully relevant username.

So should I start mining (with the hardware I have)?

Super interested in getting mining. First off, should I even bother? Or is this likely to come crashing down in a bit?
Also, I pay essentially nothing for electricity so that helps.

RAM is about what I have, not sure about MHz etc. Obvs,I havea HDD, display, etc but not important here.
So I was considering selling my 670 and getting something AMD. Or two. When this was built a year or so ago,m it was strictly for gaming and school. But now I've found cryptocoins so that might change. I even found 2 used 7970s for $500. And if I don't sell the 670, eventually make a dedicated build for mining after I break even, and put the 670 back for games.
Does this seem horribly bad to every one or...? I just can cut initial costs to the new graphics card swap, instead of having to buy PSU, RAM, etc all at once.
EDIT: Should I Bitcoin mine instead?
EDIT2: Would it be worth investing in straight up buying LTC or should I invest that same cash in a better build?
EDIT3:While I'm already asking questions.....would a set of 7950s be "best"? I don't pay for my power usage, so that isn't a huge deal. But at the same time I don't want to unnecessarily waste watts... And even more ideally I'd like to pay down my investment and make caaaash after.

I am somewhat flexible on how much I would spend, if I can spend more for a significant increase in performance then I would be open for that. This is a gaming PC and I plan to use the Oculus Rift (Dev2) to play a bunch of games such as Star Citizen. I will have 3 screens (1080, 1440, 1080), but I'll be playing games only on one 1440p screen (or the Oculus). With the Oculus Rift I will be connecting 4 screens into one GPU,would this be possible with my current setup?
The 1440p screen I will be getting is the QNIX QX2710 Evolution II (Matte).
I could probably wait more until I build this new PC, however I do want to pay for it now using my Bitcoins in Newegg and it seems like BTC these days is falling slowly in value. This is what is making me want to order parts now, instead of 1-2 months from now.
Thank you for checking out my post!

[build help] This is my first gaming build, anything you would do different?

My goal is to be able to play Skyrim (with HD mods), Battlefield 4, Final Fantasy xiv, and whatever new kick ass shit comes out at max graphics, Maybe do some bitcoin mining. Questions, Is over clocking something i should consider? Am i really going to notice a difference if i speed up my cpu .5 Ghz? I've read that people buy cheeper AMD cpu and over clock them to match the performance of higher tier processors. I think I'd rather play it safe and just shell out the extra $$ for an Intel i5 and wait till it cant keep up with the latest new kick ass shit to over clock. Is that a good plan? how long do you think till its out of date and i have to upgrade? I know i should install windows on my SSD but what else? In order to have the cleanest PC possible what should i keep on my SSD and what should I keep on my HD? Is a 120g ssd 1tb hd enough? im really just going to use this for gaming and to hold my music collection. My budget is around $900-1000 anyway you can help me get the most bang for my buck would be awesome. Anybody know of any best black friday/ cyber monday deals? Sorry if some of these are dumb questions, Im am not a very smart man.

I recently bought a 2nd 7950 (same exact card) but have yet to put it in my system since i would need a more powerful power supply. My question is, should i sell my 7950's and use the money from that and what i saved by not buying a new power supply to buy a 780? I currently use my computer for a decent amount of gaming on 2 1080p monitors and also do quite a bit of video editing on Adobe Premiere CC (which takes advantage of dual GPU's). (EDIT): I should mention, I also have been considering Bitcoin mining, but do not know anything about it or if it is worth it. Power use is also a concern for me since I will be moving into an apartment not too far into the future where I will have to pay the electricity bill (currently live in a dorm where that is included) and I am kind of tight on money.
So should I keep the 7950's and buy a power supply or sell them and get a 780?
