    11:20 the answer is - you go and grab used or even new Ryzen 5 2600. In fact, here in central europe, used 4770k is actualy more expensive than new r5 2600.

                                                      You've been successfully degraded by the 'families'. You showed a sex scene in discussing a it was nothing. YOU ARE A DEGRADED HUMAN BEING. Now your relationships with women---your mother, grandmother, sister and daughter---are diminished...which means your children suffer...if you even want children. If you are or get married, your relationship is less than it would be. You don't even question. That is what NAZ1 Propaganda Minister said he would do: "Give me control of a country's media and I will turn it into a nation of swine." You are the swine. Congratulations.
