  1. If you just want to connect things to the network and have them communicate with each other and connect to the network, get an unmanaged switch, it's plug and play. If you have specific requirements like VLANs, LACP and such, get a managed switch. To be honest, if you need a managed switch, you'd probably know you need one.
  2. Release any retention clips/bars and lift it straight up from the motherboard (if the motherboard is lying flat). Pull is really the wrong word to use as there should be no force required. It should feel like you're just picking it up off a flat surface as there's no pressure on the CPU or the pins. I'm unaware of any sockets that use a magnet to retain the CPU.
  3. razer

    Most important thing is going to be getting used to a keyboard. Membrane is fine for gaming, but you may prefer mechanical (or you may not, completely personal preference). Neither is definitively better for gaming.
  4. Then sell it, put it in a HTPC or something. There's no place for DDR3 in the new build if you're upgrading to Ryzen.
  5. Sell it or put it in another system. I kept some old DDR3 and LGA1155 parts from years ago and ended up putting them in a NAS. I would sell the FX8350 though, it's not much use nowdays. In a NAS or HTPC it's a bit too power hungry.
  6. Flash memory prices have been high for quite a while now. People expected them to come down already but at the moment they show no signs of dropping. The increase of cards being bought for mining recently isn't doing anything to help, as well as more people upgrading to new platforms like Threadripper that use DDR4. I wouldn't hold out much hope for them to drop anytime soon.
  7. $200 is barely enough to go to Ryzen 3. If you go for the cheapest of everything, you can do it, but only just. I'd save until you can afford Ryzen 5 and a decent motherboard (and RAM)
  8. Intel PRO 1000 PT
  9. Yes, there are. Can't recommend any as we don't know what CPU you're using, though. Besides, like others have said, you'd be better off buying a PCIe Ethernet NIC if you want multiple ports.
  10. We can't really answer that for you. It's really up to you if it's worth the money, and only you know if there's something else you'd rather spend the money on or save it. We can help you pick parts for a certain budget and use case, but whether you should or not is really up to you.
  11. Not possible, it's a physical difference. They should have them in most PC stores, so if you have a local one, you can try that. If not, it's tough luck really, nothing you can do
  12. You'll need an adaptor that splits the headphone/microphone combo jack into separate ports. Something like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00Y458NA6/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1502792818&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=3.5mm+microphone+splitter&dpPl=1&dpID=411D5jEIPIL&ref=plSrch
  13. Yeah, without getting two lines and therefore two different connections from your ISP (your devices won't even be on the same local network with two lines in), anything you do the limit or separate the network is going to be local. If your sister is okay with it, installing a network limiter program to prevent her computer/devices from using all of the bandwidth is probably the best way. If she's not, you should probably talk to her about working something out rather than just doing it.
  14. You can do that locally through a router,managed switch or end devices to limit a device or portion of the network to a certain bandwidth. Depending on how you do it (doing it through software on end devices gives you the most options in terms of flexibility), you can set it up so that the limit is only enabled during certain times.
  15. No, you'd need to get another line run into the house by your ISP. No matter how late or early you split a single connection, it's still only one connection so will still be limited by the speed of the single connection as it is now.
