    Want to learn how to build a gaming PC

    If you think learning taking decades is "discouraging", you've never been in an intellectual environment. No offense, but I would feel sorry for you if you ever have to learn anything. For intellectuals, learning taking decades is awesome. BTW the learning opportunities provided by getting a...

    Want to learn how to build a gaming PC

    You are saying 2 different things : do you want to learn to build gaming PCs, or do you want a gaming PC ? If you want to learn, it is a deep field, and you will be learning for decades. If you want one right now, computer hardware sellers in most cities (e.g. SP road in Bangalore, lamington...

    Graphic Cards GPU pricing trends

    Yeah, good options. I was adding to the comment on trend of latest generation CPUs. Included non-latest when latest doesn't have some range e.g. i3 gen 11&12 and R3 for a long time.

    Yes, but there are tiers now. For less than 22k CPU, since we have no ryzen 3, Intel previous gen i3 is the main option. 22 - 35 k CPU : AMD makes sense. Upto 5800x, because of much much cheaper motherboards than comparable Intel. Above that, maybe money is no object, and again Intel makes...

    Windows Please suggest some methods to use ZFS/btrfs with Windows

    I had mounted things like C:/Users/Kiran to /home/kiran inside WSL in my earlier work laptop. So I guess partitions should also be mountable, just need to change the mount command like D: mounting to /media/btrfs.

    Windows Made a script to do backups and perform checksums, could use help testing it

    I have a windows free household :), I'll try to adapt it to Linux some day. The github page looks really nice, with very thoughtful information given upfront. To address one of your concerns raised here : " 1. The encryption key is stored in the script as plaintext for convenience. I...

    WSL might also work - and may be faster than virtualbox.

    Windows Could you suggest a tool to hash (sha256) files and folders?

    One thing I use the recursive checksum for is : checking the integrity of a backup. So there are dated backups, to which I add the recursive checksum. This backup can then move across disks, to cloud, and back to me. At the end of this, especially before restore, it would be reassuring to find...
