Well my RX580 came into which made me impulsively buy everything else I need. I bought the R5 2600x for $180 on ebay (if I waited for the $165 sale, the taxes would have brought it up to $176 anyways), a Kingston 120gb A400 SSD and a Seagate 2TB hard drive for $85, and then an overkill SeaSonic 620w Bronze + Full Modular PSU for $46 after rebate

Unfortunately gonna still with my TV right now but I still need a case, keyboard, and mouse. The Q300L is being kind of elusive and by that I mean I dont wanna pay $65 for it at this moment lol

Thanks for all the advice so far.

I am subbed to buildapcsales reddit and I refresh it like crazy haha. I bought an MSI B450M Gaming Plus motherboard today for $72. Trying to stick with a red + black theme now. I was thinking about just grabbing a Q300L case because they're cheap but curious how that would do especially with the hefty boi MSI RX580

The time has come for me to cave in to peer pressure and build my first pc. I'm finishing up my undergrad and off to grad school and I was looking to replace my laptop but thought, forget it, I'll just build a pc and run my laptop for as long as I can.

Anyways, looking to spend around $650/700. I've picked up a MSI RX580 Gaming X 8gb for $168 and ADATA XPG D10 16gb DDR4 3000 for $74. I just missed the deal on Bestbuy for the Ryzen 5 2600x for $165. I'm not sure if I should just go with 2600 or try and wait for another sale on the 2600x, any thoughts?

Suggestions for any other parts such as cases, motherboards, etc are welcome too

Its funny because it was obvious to Trump before hand that he didn't have a chance of receiving the funding for the wall, pushed for it anyways, and forced a shut down. Even Fox News called him out on this

oh that's a really good one. with how stressful my classes are, i have a hard time finding the time to relax with a book, and then over the summer/winter breaks i'm all "aw yiss i can finally play video games all day" and i don't do anything good like reading. i should probably work on that because i do enjoy reading, i just have a hard time getting myself to read.
yeah I'm really not a big reader but a close friend was doing 24 books so I set a goal of 12. i understand the situation with classes so for most books I divide it into either a chapter a day or, if the chapters are really long, maybe 5 to 10 pages a day. also i always make sure i set aside about 30 minutes a day so i usually just get in bed 30 minutes earlier and do my reading then

I cant wait for EA to follow suit and close down all its physical stores due to the decline in physical and used video game sales

memrise is better for me, I use quizlet for studying other things that aren't languages
I have both apps on my phone and like memrise better for reinforcing the vocab but I have used it way less consistently than duolingo

i went through russian, french, and swahili with it. swahili is really the only one i got too much out of with it because there's not a huge focus on grammar for swahili
duolingo objectively has the best program for memorizing vocabulary but it's really lacking on literally any other linguistic function
I have found their little "lectures/readings" slightly useful before beginning a lesson and I feel like Im picking up some from repetition but yeah I've had to look elsewhere to go beyond just memorization. Also, the mobile app doesn't include the little lectures which sucks

Just curious to see if anyone here uses/used Duolingo

Impressions? Did it help you learn the language? Did you use any additional tools to help you learn?

I have been working on the German tree for about 3 months now and I'm about 2/3rds the way through. I feel like I can read fairly well but I still struggle with grammatically forming sentences.

Just found this out as I was digging through my families history

Great grandparents were born in Germany. Moved to Ukrain and owned a blacksmith shop primarily making carriages for horses. They became the richest family in town.

In 1935 my great grandfather was involved in a train accident and lost both of his legs below the knee and they gave him wooden legs.

Shortly after the birth of my grandmother in 1941, my great grandfather, who translate Russian to the other German families in town, discovered that the Russians were planning on shipping all the German families to labor camps the following day. My family and the other German families in town dropped everything and left that night.

My family went to Poland, and being treated as Russians, were put into a German camp for a year. After that they moved to western Germany and lived in a monastery for some time.

They then relocated to an apartment in Kitzingen, Germany in 1944. In 1945, the allies bombed the stuff outta Kitzingen killing over 700 people.
