  5. you should be fine. still doing well with my 6600k and 970 at 1440p.
  6. Loving the tech show vids!

    this is status update worth no here.
  7. How much NAS do I need?

    no. almost all are soldered down. its fine for these prebuilds to have a small amount of ram as their os is cut down a lot.
  8. How much NAS do I need?

    you need very little cpu power. core 2 duos make a fine nas. you need 4-8gb of ram. look at 3-5 3tb+ hdd. if you only get 3 or 4 run raid 5 if you get 5 run raid 6. I would then use an external drive and back this up once a month and then move the drive to a fire/water proof safe. for os it doesn't really mater. freenas will work if you just want a simple os.
  9. ask them if you can buy from them at twice or 3x the scrap rate.
  10. they make a lot more than phones. they also make enterprise networking gear
  11. building a nas from spare parts

    NO NO NO. you don't. how many times does this have to be said. that should work. yep intagrated are fine. try and just use the 1tb and 500gb drives run all of each capacity in raid a 5 . if you need more ports pick up a cheap card like this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA85V3DG9048
  12. Monitor doesn't work with GPU

    ok so you need to do this trick to get the 2nd to power on. http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-power-up-an-ATX-Power-Supply-without-a-PC/
  13. Monitor doesn't work with GPU

    you other may need pins shorted out to power on if there is no 20+4 pin plugged in.
  14. Monitor doesn't work with GPU
