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

With TigerDirect announcing they accept Bitcoin on the US site, how about we try to lobby Canada Computers to be the first in Canada to accept Bitcoin ahead of TigerDirect!

Estimating the marginal cost of a transaction on the Bitcoin (Cash) network

Recently, the mempool has not been clearing with every block found. Should we immediately raise the block-size? Perhaps put plans to make the easy relay of sub satoshi/byte transaction on hold?
Assumptions:
Step 1: find the price of storing a transaction
Searching NCIX:
Calculate the price per TB, assuming 1 is 6 drives are used for parity (30 bays usable storage)
Estimate the UTXO premium:
As you can see. miners have a strong incentive to offer free UTXO consolidation transactions: and require bulk UTXO fanning transaction to pay a fee of 494.86sat/kB -- about 0.5 sat/byte. ((0.01249USD/kB)/(2523.96USD/BCH)*100,000,000sat/BCH)
Fees are no where near that high due to the block subsidy. For an 8MB block: 1,250,000,000 satoshies/ 8000 kB -> 156,250sat/kB; or more conventionally: 157satosies/byte.. Note that the block subsidy per kB goes down with larger block-sizes.
Step 2: Estimate Bandwidth costs
Disclaimer: I am not too familiar with commercial bandwidth plans
Exercise to the reader:
Re-do these calculations for hobbyist hardware and internet connections. You probably have to assume a smaller block size: such as 100MB.
Disclaimer: I later learned the site I was using for prices (NCIX) was bankrupt. Not sure how much that would skew prices.

Building a high end PC. First Canadian Retailer who takes bitcoin gets my money!

I'm getting ready to build a $2000 PC and would like to use my bitcoin profits to do so. Canadian retailers like Canada Computers, NCIX, and Newegg Canada do not take bitcoin. Newegg used to take bitcoin, but no longer. TigerDirect takes bitcoin but for some reason no longer carries up to date parts.
With the big price increases there are opportunities for sales by taking bitcoin. Take my money!!!
If anybody has any suggestions for computer hardware purchases in bitcoin from Canada, please let me know.

$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!

Thoughts on Programming/Mid-Gaming Build?

Purposes of this build would mostly be for programming and mid-level gaming. Games like Rocket League, Overwatch and Hearthstone. Don't really need the highest quality or resolution. Mostly looking for the best bang for the buck on a mid-end work/gaming pc. Budget is 1000$ (before taxes and shipping), kind of tight on budget.
Components I already have are 1TB HDD, 2 monitors, a mouse and Windows 10 OS.
I have 2 months before I can build the PC, so I am going to be on the hunt for deals/sales in the meanwhile. I just want to make sure I'm not hunting the wrong animal.

Describe your problem. List any error messages and symptoms. Be descriptive.
I have a MasterLiquid Maker 92 AIO cooler (which, I've checked, is correctly installed) which I thought would be a nice upgrade over the stock cooler. Unfortunately, for some reason the temps are worse than the stock cooler, which would stay at ~50C on idle. I have also confirmed that there's no malware, bitcoin mining, etc going on in task manager.
List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem.

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.

Video card troubles

So I'm working on my first build buying parts one at a time and I'm finally to the video card. This is where I figure out that I literally can't find a 580 in stock anywhere. As I understand, bitcoin miners have been buying all of them up.
So here's my build, could you guys recommend me a card, or is this 570 4gb I found at my local best buy decent?

Provide any additional details you wish below.
Some parts listed as $0.0 are already owned and will be transferred into the new build (gfx card, spinners, an ssd, optical drive, card reader)
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
https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-MAXIMUS-IX-FORMULA/
6 Sata slots, and MU-MIMO wireless

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.

[Build Complete] FrankenPC: gaming, bitcoin mining, HTPC

This is an all-purpose build that I put together slowly over the past year. It started out as just an HTPC, but ballooned into a gaming and bitcoin mining system. What's not listed in pcpartpicker is an additional HD 6850 connected by a PCIe x1 riser for bitcoin mining. The total hashrate of the system is 780 MH/s. Mining has been going full-on for about 4 months now and about a 1/3 of the cost of the current system has been paid for. It probably won't continue at this rate if difficulty goes way up with the asics coming out, but a 1/3 of the cost already is still a lot.
The i5-3450 and 7950 are a great combination for gaming. FPS on ultra detail on BF3 is 40-60 on a 1080p HDTV with AA/MSAA at their lowest settings.

Notes:

Edit: Literally everyone has said to get the GTX 980 Ti because of its price:performance ratio being better. You should look into that if the price seems high (which it is).
wkper's list is the best one here.

[Build Help] Mixed Feelings between these 2 builds

This is a gaming/school build. I would like it to be able to mine some bitcoin when im not doing anything, and i dont pay for electricity so dont worry about wattage too much. I Don't know which one to go for, my budget is around 1150 and i already bought the mobo and cpu. If someone could find a build that had a monitor and an SSD still with a great graphics card that would be killer. (I didn't know if the 256 ssd is necessary so thats not static)

First and foremost, this computer is intended to hold me over for the next few years until I am commissioned into the United States Air Force.
Here is a list of different things that this computer will be used for:
  • Goldfarming. Wait! What's that? Well... goldfarming is where you run a "bot" (or macro) to obtain in-game currency. Then, with that in-game currency from the bot, I sell to the general public for good 'ole real-life currency, preferrably USD.
  • Gaming. Nothing too major, just something to do every now and then.
  • Programming. I am, and plan on, taking computer programming classes while I am here at college.
Now that I am done with what "society" has wanted me to do, by telling you the Gaming-Aspect of this computer's usage, I will continue.
  • Entertainment. Yes, entertainment. This includes, but does not limit to, movies, music, and whatever else your minds can think of.
I've also been thinking of running some BitCoin Mining/LiteCoin Mining in the background, figured it can't hurt. I know it's "late in the game," but it's whatever. I don't pay for electricity. (Either I am at home, where the MILITARY pays for my electricity, or I am at school, where the UNIVERSITY pays for it.)
Any questions, comments, concerns, or general feedback? (Also, this is my last build. I am not building anymore, until I actually physcially build this computer.)
The statement in quotations is not to discourage you from suggesting better parts. Try and keep the budget to $900, I'd like to not go much over.
submitted by Dedicarios to buildapc [link] [comments]

[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!
