  4. I did a quick search and saw this post on the Level1 Tech forums: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/multiple-monitors-in-virtualbox/115445/3 and it seems that there is a driver issue (if that's even a thing with mac, never used one tbh). They mention a "VirtualBox tools" package needs to be installed on the VM (MacOS in your case). EDIT: Really wish they embedded it into the software tbh! Hope This Helps, Chris
  5. WARNING! It's A LONG POST SO BRACE YOURSELVES!!!! Father's House (Server location) ISP provided the modem and Router/AP Cisco Switch (Catalyst 2950 series) - provided my dad's colleague who is a legend in my eyes (even though I've never met him). Is only 10/100 as wasn't meant to be permanent but my cheap 8-port gigabit LAN switch from Amazon died after about 4 years. TP-Link Gigabit LAN - brought to replace a crappy one from 2003. Powerline adapters are 300mbps so my sister, my dad and I can have fast file transfers while my other sister is gaming. OnNetworks APs (both Houses) - slow, unintuitive web UI, and drops out on any devices plugged into it (wireless is stable for once) Server Spare gigabyte board I had lying around with an Intel core i3 2120 @ 3.30GHz, 6 GB of RAM, 3.5TB of storage, onboard Gigabit LAN and a TP-link PCI (not PCI-E otherwise the HP card would be in here) Gigabit LAN card. 3TB WD Red - Pulled from a WD my cloud (didn't have the functionality I needed, and it needed a separate machine for plex) 500GB Seagate - pulled from Cable TV box that was brought by us (Only paid for extra channels as a monthly subscription) Windows Server 2016 The office PC is another gigabyte board with an Intel core i3 3220 @3.30GHz, 8GB RAM, 250GB HDD (boot), 500GB HDD (primary storage), 1TB HDD (secondary storage), onboard gigabit LAN and a Radeon R5 230 from Asus. Some ASRock board (my sister brought it online, second hand, (was 75% brown dust till I came along and cleaned it) Mother's House (where I live on weekdays) both switches are TP-link 5port 10/100mbps My Room FYI I can still access my file server from here I just have to use a VPN Domain laptop - Dell Latitude D630 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD (was from my main one as it was dying (kept on BSODing) but I wasn't worried about space on my main so I swapped the drives and reinstalled windows on them. Main Laptop - Dell Latitude E6410 8GB RAM, 80GB HDD (both Dell's have Gigabit LAN) Linux Test Bench - My sister's old Toshiba laptop 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD (CBA to put it in my main) My PC - Biostar (with a soldered on Celeron CPU), 5GB RAM, 160GB HDD (boot), 250GB HDD (storage), HP enterprise dual gigabit LAN PCI-E card. I still have to rebuild my step-dad's PC because it was a HP prebuilt but the PSU failed and nuked the board (RAM, GPU and HDD are confirmed fine but have no way to test the AMD CPU as I'm more of an intel guy TBH) If you read all that, you deserve a snack
  6. I use the pc for light games such as Doom (2016) and I do a lot of coding as part of my college work and have issues running virual studio and such. my brother uses it to play minecraft with like 120 odd mods and keeps complaining about the frames and occational gets opengl errors.
  7. Hey all, So I got a Gigabyte GA-H61N-D2V motherboard but cant find a graphics card with the right pci connector. I have attached the picture of the motherboard from Gigabyte's website. I would like the price to be fairly low but the graphics to be better thanthe intel hdgraphics that comes with the intel core i3 2120 @ 3.3GHz Thanks in advance, Chris
  8. Hi all, so I recently upgrade my pc from a BioStar board which has an Intel Celeron 1037U @1.80GHz to a Gigabyte GA-H61N-D2V with an intel i3 2120 @ 3.30GHz. They both used the same two sticks of 4GB DDR3 giving them 8GB. According to the pass mark scores (BioStar with1733 and Gigabyte with 3902 (See attached Graph)) you would think that I would be faster but no the biostar board was faster and the new gigabyte board is having issues running Microsoft edge let alone playing games. heck the damn thing cant even run Minecraft. I was wondering if someone could give me a little bit of insight into why it is like this. Many Thanks, Chris
  9. That is why I ask you guys as I know you guys help
  10. It will be for files and plex and the budget does not need to include the file server drives
  11. Hey guys, I need a file server, which has a similar purpose to Linus' Home Server, but not as pricey. Currently I am using my old Dell Latitude D630 Laptop 4GB Ram win7 Pro 32x with an external 1TB Seagate expansion drive. I don't want to buy a prebuilt one as they cant be easily upgraded plus I want to build it to make sure it all works. I preferably want it to be less than £350 but I can go over a bit. Hope you guys can help me out. Many Thanks, Chris
  12. I looked on linusmediagroup.com but it is out of date
