    ram size in task manager

    Hardware reserved RAM
  2. PoE is for supplying power to devices on the other end. There are a couple switches out there that are powered by PoE but you need a PoE capable device on the other side. No switches that I know of that can be USB powered though. You'll need a PoE powered switch and a PoE injector on the other side near the modem or something, or you'll have to find a power strip to add to the mix as well in your room to get another power outlet.
  3. Yah, you'll need to push the pcie tab down to pull the GPU out

    Dead CPU?

    Z270 doesn't work with 8000 series chips

    How to afford the stuff

    2x4 will give you dual channel support which is a huge benefit to the Ryzen chips and platform.

    How to afford the stuff

    Nope, I would say that 99% of gaming and other tasks are fine with 8GB of RAM If you do find you run out often then you can always add another 2x4GB kit down the line for 16GB total but this gets you going nicely

    How to afford the stuff

    The GPU isn't in your original price and I'm assuming you want it cheap but good. Swapped out the RAM for 2x4GB to bring the price down, you can always add more later You can add in a HDD later on down the line, start with an SSD and see where it gets you Picked out a cheaper case and a PSU that won't destroy your new build when it goes.

    Private IP WAN address and port opening for torrent

    In a lot of Asian and European markets they use CGN to NAT a bunch of residents to a single IP address. It's double NAT on a very large scale. If he went to whatsmyip it would show the same public IP that others have as well.

    Private IP WAN address and port opening for torrent

    He's behind Carrier Grade NAT (CGN) and in that case there is no way to forward ports to his IP without paying for a true public IP address or asking the ISP to forward the port for him, which they will just deny.
  12. You should really just switch to all Borg servers with new Borg Collective technology for your network. They offer the fastest collective response with the lowest round trip latency of any collective around! And unlike Skynet we they offer the option to continue life as an upgraded member of our their society.

    Network review

    So long as the firewall/router allows you to segment off the second subnet from talking to the first network you'll be fine, no need to go all out with pfSense.
  14. So you want to take company files and move them off company servers so you can still access them when the company decides to delete them and then take those files and upload them to an unknown server where they can potentially be compromised?
