Newegg.ca No longer accepting Bitcoin payments as of May 30th.

Welp I don't know why, or if this affects anybody else, but I paid some of my stuff with bitcoin on newegg. Its obviously better to buy with a credit card, but they were accepting bitcoin for a long time.

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

$750 Quadruple Monitor Linux Rig

I'm using the same formatting here as suggested by the Tek Syndicate forums. Thanks for the help guys, it is much needed!
Intro
I don't know much about building computers, yet, so thanks for reading this. I need a computer that can push four monitors. I use Linux which complicates things. Choosing the graphics card seems to be the hardest part for me. I'd like to get a graphics card that is either supported on Linux by the manufacturer with proprietary drivers or one that is supported with open source drivers. Whichever is fine, I just want it to work. Eyefinity support would be great too, I have 3 1920x1200 monitors in portrait mode so I'd like to run them all as one display when I watch movies (this way I can watch 4K content).
Budget. How much are you willing to spend?
$750. Spending less would be nice. I will spend more than $750 if need be.
Where do you live (what country), and what currency do you use?
United States. I live in a big city so I also have plenty of physical stores near by (microcenter, best buy, etc.)
Is there a retailer you prefer?
Newegg/Amazon (I have free 2 day shipping on those sites). I will buy wherever is the cheapest though.
Do you need or already have peripherals? (this can add to costs)
I already have these items:
What will you be using your future computer for? Gaming? Rendering? Mix of both? Or is this a home media PC?
Web browsing, photoshop, watching video (not editing video), and programming. I don't game so I won't need as powerful of a computer. I really need something that can push all 4 monitors while Web browsing, photoshop, watching video, and programming at the same time.
Do you overclock or want to get into overclocking?
Overclocking isn't a priority for me. If the CPU and graphics cards can be overclocked then I will if cooling isn't a problem.
Do you plan on going for custom watercooling now, or in the future?
No.
OS. Do you need a new one?
No. I use Ubuntu, Debian, and Arch. I will also be installing Windows 7 Home Premium with a license key I have.
Do you plan on mining bitcoin?
Yes! If cooling isn't a problem I certainly will be mining bitcoin or litecoin.
Do you render movies or photshop pictures?
I edit photos with GIMP but I may move to Abode Photoshop. I don't edit much video.
If there are any parts that you must have, and you don't want to be swayed against, such as a particular graphics card cooler, or a certain SSD, case, etc., then please specify that.
I'd like to get a 128gb SSD. I don't need any additonal storage.
I'd like to get 8gb of FAST ddr3 ram.
3 of my monitors have displayport which helps for picking a graphics card!
I want the motherboard to have USB 3.0. Front or back ports is fine with me.
I'd like to get a Fractal Design case. Cheaper black minimal cases work for me as well.
I have these parts from an old desktop I scrapped if they are useful:

I think I've approached this wrong...

When I first started mining just over a year ago, it was suggestion by the same user that got me into mining on Ncix.com that I get a wallet at QuadrigaCX and use that as my nicehash address for mining, I have since then moved on to Sniffdog Miner but the same process applies pretty much which is entering in the btc wallet address I want my btc payouts from the pools to go to.
Since mining for over a year I've accumulated a decent amount of bitcoin as well as a bit of litecoin and bitcoin cash. So it has been brought to my attention that keeping my coins in a Quadrigacx wallet is the same as leaving it on the exchange correct? I've only been using QuadrigaCX as a wallet and that is neither correct not safe?
So if I'm planning on holding my coins for a few years I probably shouldn't be keeping it in my QuadrigaCX wallet and transfer it to a blockchain wallet or something similar right? The user from Ncix was probably suggesting what he did, thinking it was for constantly cashing out the profits? Which I don't intend on doing for a few years.
Edit: oh and if using a different wallet is suggested, when it does come time to cashing out and I have to send the btc back to QuadrigaCX, I'm guessing there're fees involved?

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.

Welcome BuildaPC,
I present to you The Corsair AMD Pirate, often referred to as The Corsair MAD Pirate depending on who you ask. (Referring to those with dyslexia, I make this joke because my roommate is dyslexic.)
I've "raised" $1150 for this build, the money coming from Christmas/19th Birthday/Selling PS3 (320GB) + 16 Games/Selling Laptop. So, not much will come out of my pocket. :)
I don't plan on buying the Operating System, as I already have it.
Any questions or comments? Discuss.
Thanks, Blake
EDIT
I will switch my PSU to the one linked below, if the offer is still running when I make the purchase. (Same price for the Gold Standard!) Thanks to BuildaPCSales!

$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!

well im finally 1 week away from ascending got some extra cash so decided to up the pc a litle and ask for some last minute advice
anything you guys would change / add / upgrade / comment about the pc / some tech tip that could help / anything i need to know would be greatly apreciated, i would also like some help getting another mouse i need a small gaming mouse that i can use a claw grip with also im not 100% if i should buy that mobo id like some advice if i can go something better or cheaper and whiout damaging the perfomance
and since the pcmr community has been so nice and helped me build my pc and learn a lot from pc´s im gonna make various giveaways and id like to know if its alowed to give the money directly instead of the game key, like trought paypal or bitcoin also what would be an aceptable price range i would feel bad giving away 4 games for 50$ each when so many ppl helped me
that would be all sorry for the long post and sorry for any spelling mistakes i made

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.

Also, any tips on taking advantage from my 2 months period of hunting? I've read that bitcoin and ethereum prices are going down and that GPUs could go down.
