  1. Considering all your audio sources are digital, there would be zero difference in quality. EDIT: The only way the quality would be affected is if something does lossy compression to the audio, but it's hard to tell if this is going to be the case or not.
  2. Like any other performance issue, it depends on where the bottleneck is and characterizing it. If most of the queries are hitting like 10GB of data, then you could just get another 16GB of RAM for your server and just cache things in RAM.
  3. Like any caching system, it depends on what data is being constantly accessed. For example if there's a hot new item that everyone wants from Amazon, the caching system will push the data for that item up to faster memory so people can find it quicker. I suppose Optane or any other hard drive caching system would be useful for people who can't be bothered to manually putting things on the faster storage or not.
  4. I'm sure there's a way to locally hammer your server from the same machine. A request is a request as far as the server is concerned.
  5. You can set up a shared folder in the VM Settings. However in the VM itself you have to make yourself part of the vboxsf or whatever group. I believe you also need VirtualBox Guest Additions installed as well.

    No more optane...?

    Considering you can buy a 120GB SSD for the same price as a 16GB Optane on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-240GB-Solid-State-SDSSDA-240G-G26/dp/B01F9G43WU/), I'd say the SSD would be a better choice. It's compatible with more systems, you get way more space to put stuff on, and you can control what gets put on the SSD.
  7. Judging by the review date and when it was released, yeah I'd say it's a press card. Besides that, there's no real benefit to gluing a video card together unlike say gluing a phone together.
  8. Yes, I'm aware of this video and what Steve Burke found. However I found at least one other reviewer who tore the card down and described nothing of the sort of needing a heat gun to take it apart. So that basically tells me what Steve Burke found was only in his case so far. I would like to see other people who can verify Steve Burke's findings before we can call it conclusive that the RTX 2060 FE is "impossible to open." Besides, did he actually buy it or was it a press card?

    Windows drive defragmentation (And its problems)

    This is the first time I heard about this so I dug around. I found this: https://www.hanselman.com/blog/TheRealAndCompleteStoryDoesWindowsDefragmentYourSSD.aspx In short: yes SSDs do get fragmented and yes there are parts of the contents of data that need to be tidied up once in a while, but at the end of the day, Windows knows how to take care of the SSD so you shouldn't worry about it.

    Multiple gpu's for more ports

    You can use another video card for extra ports if need be, but games will default to using the GPU connected to what's considered the primary display. So just make sure the primary display is on the RX 580.

    Windows drive defragmentation (And its problems)

    You can find SSDs that use the SATA connector, but it's still an SSD and you shouldn't defrag them.
  13. Most likely a better cooler. But considering the FE ones have went to open-air or whatever style coolers, I don't know AIB's custom designs within the same size have a big advantage anymore.

    Windows drive defragmentation (And its problems)

    Windows from 8 and on is smart enough to not run defragging on an SSD. Even though SSDs show up on the defrag utility and it says "Optimize", all it's doing is forcing the TRIM command. And just to nitpick here: SATA is a communication protocol (and a connector standard, but that's not important here), there are M.2 SATA SSDs.
