Hey /g/, I'm coming to you today with a question regarding the building of computers.
Say I'm going off this image word-for-word and buy a computer with nothing but components from the "Very Good" category (~$650).
What are the most recent games I'd be able to play on it without dropping below 20fps?
My current computer I've had for over eight years and can barely run WoW at 3fps during big raids, this is my first attempt at building a compooter. I've been a console man most my life. Literally anything is an upgrade for me computer-wise.
I know the $650-range parts would make a computer that could run WoW in its sleep, not that I play it anymore
I was more wondering about recent games, like GTA4 and 5 (probably not 5), shit like that.

Hey /g/, I'm looking for some help here.
I've always been a fan of drawing, but it's always been more very-random-sketches, because I make too many mistakes to actually draw without making it look like crap from all the erase marks.
I've been thinking about getting a drawing tablet, as this would alleviate a LOT of my issues with drawing on paper, and hopefully encourage me to practice more. But I'm a total novice; I know nothing about what to look for.
I'm kind of hoping you guys can give me some good recommendations for a drawing pad/tablet/whatever you want to call it. "Pro" features aren't necessary as the most complicated thing I'd be likely to try drawing would be a webcomic, or something equally silly.
What I would like:
-My absolute budget limit is $300, I would LIKE to find something in the realm of $200.
-A reasonably large screen/drawing area; I don't want to have to deal with a tiny amount of real estate for actually drawing without having to do a lot of zoom work.
-Its own (good and well-designed) software is a plus, but not a necessity.
-Simple to use is a plus, but I should be able to figure it out either way.
Running Windows 7, can provide other details if necessary.

Less than a year ago, Debbie Sterling’s concept of a toy that would teach engineering skills to little girls was nothing more than a prototype on Kickstarter.
Today, GoldieBlox holds the distinction as one of Amazon’s top 100 toys (top 20 as of this writing). The toy, which teaches engineering skills through the adventures of kid inventor Goldie, is available in 600 Toys “R” Us stores, and 400 other toy stores nationwide.
But it’s not the sales that make Sterling proudest. Instead, it’s the messages from the parents that pour in every day. Stories about little girls that sing songs about building and engineering, or are inspired to build their own toys after playing with GoldieBlox.
“My favorite story was when a mom wrote in about being in a public restroom with her daughter where the toilet paper dispenser was broken,” Sterling said. “The girl said, ‘Mommy, it’s missing its axle!’ She’d learned the vocabulary from GoldieBlox.”

Why haven't you switched to the Red Hat master race here? It's the only Enterprise-class Linux distro. It's Debian without the autism. Stable as fuck, no tinkering, and most software you'll need is either in the main repository, or in EPEL. And if anything goes wrong, you can rollback your system to a previous state. Can your Ubuntu do that? Don't think so.
It doesn't matter if you're a poorfag; just get CentOS or Scientific Linux, which are practically the same.
