  1. TP Link makes some solid products. Try looking at their higher end Archer series routers they have AC (WIFI 5). Pair that with a switch if necessary and you should have a decent setup. If at all possible, put your access point/WiFi router as high as possible and as close to the middle of the house as possible. This will give you the best coverage and range.
  2. The 1080 was $549 on release, and $699 if you bought the Founder's Edition, so $699 for the 2080 isn't so outrageous considering a new architecture and ray tracing. Also, you have to consider that it's using a new memory standard and that RAM is still very expensive. So, I'd say that the price point is still competitive. If you can't afford it, wait for the 1080/1080 ti sales to go and have at it.
  3. It may not be your PC, it may be how you are connecting to your internet connection. If you have a bad wireless connection, like a shoddy adapter, you will experience lag and skips. Try connecting via ethernet if at all possible.
  4. Mount to the ceiling if you can. It will net you the best performance.
  5. It says around 400 feet (for the AC Lite), but that is with no obstructions. You can adjust the power going to the antenna to extend the range a bit, but I'd say it's going to be around 250 feet in any direction from the point where it's placed. You also have to take into consideration the building materials that are used in your house/apartment. If it's an older building, and not drywall, that may affect your signal.
  6. Go with the AC Pro then, it's a bit more than $120, but you'll be able to put it pretty much wherever you want and have good coverage. Just remember that you'll have to run an Ethernet cable to the POE injector and to the access point. If you are renting, check with your landlord for what you can do to the property before installing it.
  7. They are pretty damn great. Just find the one that will match all the devices in your house the best. I have two of the AP AC Pros in my house and can get a usable signal about 4-5 houses away on my iPhone. Setup is pretty simple, and you really don't have to touch the software after you set it up the first time. Just find the one that matches your price range the best. If you only plan on getting one, get the AC Lite or AC Pro depending on your budget.
  8. Yes, if you go to Ark, you'll see that they only have 32 bit instruction sets. Maybe it was just there for dual channel operation.
  9. If it was dual processor, I think that each one could access 3gb of RAM.
  10. Ookla usually measures the highest sustained speed that you can have depending on the site it's measuring from. I for instance can get about 200 Mbps download on my home connection even though I only pay for 110 Mbps. There is some BTS trickery that's going on too because some companies, like Xfinity/Comcast offering much higher burst speeds. Also, depending on how your ISP has their QoS services set up, it may or may not limit your bandwidth further.
  11. Your connection is a 20 Mb/s connection, or 20 megabits per second, which is roughly equivalent to 2.5 megabytes per second. You can see in your second screenshot that your down speed is 20123 Kbps. Sorry, but DSL is very limited in the speed that you can get up and down. QoS will not really do anything to help you at this point. You're lucky to be getting most of your rated bandwidth though. Research other companies in your area, or speak with CenturyLink to see about other packages that they may have available.
  12. Are you going to need the system to transcode the video on the fly? Is the server going to be wired or wireless? How many clients will be using the server? How much storage will you need? These are some things that you want to be thinking about before you build so that you can know where to put your budget. If a bunch of people in your house are going to use it, you will want to have the machine hardwired to your network, and have more cores/threads available. If it's just you and one other person, you could get away with using a newer Pentium/Celeron system and just getting a ton of HDD capacity. This will also bring your overall power consumption down as well.
  13. You have to remember that with most other tasks, like watching video, playing games, etc, can take advantage of hardware acceleration offered on your GPU. Video editing however, will benefit from having more memory available because, depending on how complex you are getting with your videos, it can consume a lot of RAM and disk space. Also, when your RAM is maxing out, you will definitely see the problem you mentioned. Add to this the fact that it isn't working in dual channel mode can hinder your system's performance as well.
  14. Your processor and RAM may be bottlenecking the system. Especially since you are using a single stick of memory. FX series processors are based off of a very old CPU architecture, getting close to a decade old IIRC, so when you save up enough money, you should probably upgrade. Your best and only upgrade path with your system as it stands would be getting another 8GB stick of memory. Also, what editing software are you using? If you're using Premiere or one of the more popular titles, make sure that GPU acceleration is turned on so that you can take advantage of the extra power that your video card offers you.
