  1. I'm guessing it depends on the card. The expansion card I used to use allowed me to boot from it, that said the drive connected to it was visible in the BIOS.
  2. You should be able to supply those during the OS installation. Same with RAID cards. Also Linux is fine with booting from a USB. I do it all the time.
  3. AMD CPUs have some uses. For example, I'm likely going to use an AMD CPU in a server because they have ECC support for a lot less than Intel do. (Just to be clear, the i3 has ECC too but the only mobo's I can find in NZ are like $500)
  4. It will hopefully be more than that. Pascal has a die shrink and HBM2 on Maxwell
  5. Pre 25th Dec I'd imagine. At least for the budget minded option.
  6. Just a heads up, my x61 doesn't go white properly (it's tinted multiple different colours).
  7. I can't help but think this system is a little stupid. Lets do a multiplication story for the following matrices...
  8. The CPU is almost definitely going to need to be intel. I'd say the G3258 or something Skylake but I haven't stayed up to date with Skylake so I can't recommend one.
  9. Is Secure Boot enabled? It prevents other OS's from running (Linux mainly)

    8K displays

    Assuming this monitor can be made to any spec, the outer edges don't need to follow the 50pixel/degree rule. (CostReduction++) I think I misunderstood you, you were find what res will be the last not what is optimal. I'd say the optimal something in the 21:9 scope

    8K displays

    16k is 4x 8k. Also human FOV is ~107 (from memory) for both eyes overlap, anything else is peripheral.
  12. I didn't want to reply to this thread but I wonder if overvolting (surely you can overvolt or at least overclock a mac) would work instead of disabling thermal cutoff.
  13. Wiki has it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrical_wiring
  14. Ok, so wireless clients can see each other then. Any antivirus?
