  1. I've got one coming Saturday from Amazon, so I'll see what happens.
  2. When I have the onboard enabled with a standalone card like I do, is it only using one chip? I was under the impression that they would simply drive whichever monitor was plugged into it? Also, I would think I would be having the same problem before I replaced the monitor if that were the case?
  3. Hey guys, Normally, I'm pretty good with hardware, but this has me a little stumped. I had 2x 1080 monitors and one 1440x900 monitor hooked up to my computer. Today, I bought a 1080 monitor of the same type as my others to replace the x900. When I plugged in the new monitor, my FPS in LoL went from the 150 range down to 30-40. Anyone know what gives? I knew replacing the x900 monitor with a x1080 would be harder to run, but I think something else is going on here. I have two of them plugged into my 750Ti (I'm a filthy casual), and the other is plugged into the onboard graphics. I have tried having two plugged into the onboard and one on the 750, but I get the same exact results. The only combination I haven't tried is having all of them plugged into the 750, because I don't have a means to do so. Thanks in advance! Specs: i5-6600 16GB DDR4 750Ti ASRock H170M
  4. There are several on Google when typing in "Wireless Bridge". Here is one that involves flashing your router to DD-WRT, but I think you can do this with several commercial APs. http://www.cnet.com/how-to/reuse-an-old-router-to-bridge-devices-to-your-wireless-network/ -EDIT- Here's just one example of a commercial product that can do this straight out of the box. http://www.amazon.com/D-Link-Wireless-Gigabit-Extender-DAP-1522/dp/B001769K3O It's a coincidence, but this is on the front page right now.
  5. I'm almost positive that you can do this with an access point set to client mode. It will pick up the wireless signal, and then you can connect an ethernet cable to another computer or a switch that can push that signal to multiple computers.
  6. Haha! I know that feeling all too well. I think it happens to all of us. Good luck with your builds. I recently just went through and built a pfSense box and a NAS, so if you have any more questions, just ask me.
  7. I gotcha. I'm still confused as to why you needed 3 of those 4 port NICs that you linked, though.
  8. Ah, I think I see what you're trying to do. You're wanting to just plug all of your devices into the router itself, right? While pfSense can do bridging between the ports, it's kind of clunky and not really what that's for. A router should route traffic between different networks, not different devices. When people add more LAN ports to their pfSense router, they're usually setting up multiple LANs. For the home user, most of the time you only want one LAN, so you only need two ethernet ports to your router. One will go from your modem to your router, and one will come out of the router and go into a network switch. Then, all of your devices will connect to the switch.
  9. What NICs are you buying that are more expensive than buying a pfSense router? My suggestion is to build a dedicated router and build a dedicated server.
  10. I don't think this is something you should consider. I think that it's doable, but it adds so much confusion to things that I just don't see how it's worth it, especially for someone that hasn't used any of this kind of software before. I've looked at a lot of mini-ITX motherboards, and I'm guessing you're looking at something like the ASRock C2550. All of the ITX boards that I have seen have a dedicated port for IPMI which, as far as I know, cannot be used in a typical networking capacity like you're expecting. Both FreeNAS and pfSense advise against running them in VMs, let alone both. I say don't do it.
  11. Did you happen to read the full requirements in that forum post about hosting a DayZ server? If everything in that thread is true, there's almost no way you're running one from home, if I'm not confused about something.
  12. I did not know this. I have a Skylake booting unRaid from a USB, and I had no problem installing Windows 10 with a USB on a Skylake system. Is this specifically to FreeBSD?
  13. Unless he expects his website to be getting hundreds of hits at at a time or querying large data sets, I think a G3258 with 8GB of RAM is more than enough.
  14. Yeah. I'm going to reiterate what @djdwosk97 said and suggest going with Intel. You could get a G4400 for $30 more, and it's a much better processor.
  15. I'm a little confused. You now have it running on a 2600k instead of the a4-3300 you mentioned in your previous post? That's still a very good processor.
