    Confused about vpn’s

    This was what I was thinking but I wasn’t really sure. Thanks for the replies.

    Confused about vpn’s

    I recently purchased 3 years of Nord VPN. Now I’m a little confused about what devices need it installed on. I use my phone as my primary hotspot as I am a coast to coast truck driver. Now should the phone be the only one with the vpn installed or should all the devices connecting to it also have the vpn installed as well?

    Need a router that runs on a cellular signal

    I generally use my phone as a hotspot but I have never used more than 1 device at a time. T-Mobile says they support up to 5 devices but will the devices treate the phone as a router and commicate with each other. Like can iTunes on my laptop push a video through the phone to the Apple TV like it can at home
  4. I drive a semi cross country for a living and I have several devices that work better in a network environment. Do they make a router that runs on a phones internet signal? Some of my devices are a laptop, Apple TV, amazon echo, and a smart TV.
  5. I just got the EVGA GTX 1070 and the Asus Maximus 8 Formula. They both have RGB lighting on them. Is there any way to control the RGB from a central program or do I have to adjust them separately in their individual programs?

    GTX 1070 or RX 480

    Unfortunately I can't put a 32" on my monitor mount. I use an obutto cockpit and I am pushing it having 3 27's on it. I also don't want to spend any more money on monitors as I have 3 very good 27" monitors already. as well as a 32" TV on top. (This picture is outdated. I have added 2 27"s and removed 1 20". I now have 5 screens on my setup.) Maybe in a few years I might get a few 1440p monitors. I have used this set up on a single R9 285X for years and haven't had any issue with it. Power is also not a concern as I invested in a 860w power supply.

    GTX 1070 or RX 480

    I'm using 3 27" monitors at 1920 x 1080 with a 4th 20" monitor at 900 x 1600(in portrait). My main concern is the money I am spending on these cards. I know I want 2 cards for the looks of the PC but I am also realistic to know that I can't buy the parts all at one time. My original budget for these cards was $250 for one card with a second card a few months down the road. Now that has ballooned to $419 for 1 card and another $419 a few months from now. I plan on water cooling both the CPU as well as the GPU's as soon as I finish buying all the parts of the PC. As it stands I still need 2 Graphic Cards and 3 ram sticks before I can even think of Water cooling.

    GTX 1070 or RX 480

    It would take me 2 months to earn that type of cash. I wasn't planning on buying a 2nd GC for another couple months. I can justify spending $400 on a card now and then another $400 a month from now since it would only take a few weeks to earn that but $700 on 1 card ($1400 on 2) is just not possible since I have bills to pay. As it is I am working 2 jobs (14 hour days) in order to be able to afford this PC that I am building and my planned card budget has already doubled from what I originally planned. Originally I was only going to spend $500 on 2 GC's and now I am increasing that to $800 for 2 cards. I simply want 2 cards in my system so that when I water cool it, It will look great. I am lucky in the fact that on my second job I am considered an independent contractor and as long as I make 1 delivery a month I can work as much or as little as I want to. My 9 to 5 job pays the bills and the second job pays every thing else.

    What about founder's edition vs a normal card. Is there a benefit to an FE card?

    GTX 1070 or RX 480

    So if I'm going for a 1070 which one would be recommended. I don't know the GTX line up as well as I do the AMD one. I usually stick with XFX as I have always had solid performance out of their cards.

    GTX 1070 or RX 480

    I do want to run my games stretched out on all 3 monitors with the 4th one having additional info on it. But only a couple of my games do that. The others I just play on a single monitor. I was curious of the difference between 2 480's vs 1 1070? I can afford to get a single 480 in less than 7 days while It would take me at least 5 weeks to justify getting a 1070. The main games I play right now are skyrim and fallout 4 maxed out on mods at high settings. I also play project cars and Star Citizen. I don't know if those support Multiple GPU's

    GTX 1070 or RX 480

    I just built a PC using an i7-6700K on a z170 mother board. I was wondering which graphic's card I should put in it. I was planning on getting 2 RX 480's but should I get 2 GTX 1070's instead? I can go ahead and get 2 RX 480's in 14 days vs a little over a month for the 1070's. I also have to keep in mind that I still need to buy at least 1 more ram stick as I'm operating on just 1 16gb stick for now. What I need to know is which would be better for gaming based on best value for price. I use 3 mounted AOC e2752Vh 27.0" 60Hz Monitors side by side and a single 20" Dell s2009wb flipped in portrait mode mounted underneath. So I am not interested in 4K. Just as long as I can play new triple A games in high quality and maybe use VR sometime in the future.

    My new build 2016

    The system I built in 2011 is getting outdated so I figured it was time for a new PC build. And since I could afford to buy top of the line parts this time I am attempting to recreate Linus's ultimate over kill build. I am of course changing stuff to where it makes sense for my own needs.
  14. My current motherboard supposedly could use just one stick and It did for a few months before I got more but a now its a few years later and I have started having ram issues and I believe it's the RAM slots that are causing it. I just don't want my new board to have the same issues later in life. Granted my new board costs $340 while the old one was only $99.
  15. I am in the process of buying parts for a new PC build. I have finally gotten to the point where I have all the parts I need to start turning it on and installing windows. The issue is that I only have 1 - 16gb RAM stick. Now my motherboard manual says that it can run off 1 ram stick but is this a safe practice? I do plan on getting 3 more in the near future as soon as I can afford it, But I was just curious how long I can go before it could damage my MB.
