  1. We really don't know. Its gonna be years before games start to use this if I had to make a guess, and probably a few more years before games start to require it. I would't worry about this when setting up a pc now, as its probably gonna be so far out, you may need anouther ssd anyways.
  2. For most all games, there is very little difference in load times between ssds. Even a slow sata ssd is not noticable from a optane(these are normally the fastest, as peak speeds don't really matter, and optane is much faster in most real world uses) drive in most uses. Look at the ltt video here
  3. Id yank the power and have it reset.
  4. What update? Does the screen res seem wrong? What message does it show? Could be the 2004 update, that can take a while.
  5. CPU support list shows only the kabylake quad cores are compatible
  6. Id really suggest just having small gaming desktops where you need them as it reduces cost, complexity and issues. How far away are the workstations from the servers? Your probably gonna need a video + usb extention cable, either over cat6 or fibre, depending on distance and bandwidth neded.
  7. SHucked drives are a pretty good cheap option. You can get a 8tb external hdd, and then remove the case and it use like a normal drive.
  8. Lets say I have used way over 1TB in a month with PIA, and never had a noticable slow down or issue, so I don't think you will have a issue. But it will still count against your ISP datacap, as all the data still has to go through your isp.
  9. Probably get a single bigger hdds, or two if you want raid 1. Make sure to have backups aswell. For os, unraid is great for easy expansion, otherwise di use something like freenas or openmediavault.
  10. What drive setup do you plan on using? That should be more than plenty to fill up a 1gbe connection.
  11. id still use kvm then. But is vt-d enabled on the hardware, I don't think many systems from that era had vt-d enabled and setup correctly.
  12. Im not sure it supports pcie passthough on there. And virtual box only supports pcie passthough on linux, and id really suggest using vkm for passthough if your going to do that.
  13. Depends on the implentation, but normally yes, or it will use the capacity of the samller drive. For that usecase, Id keep them seprate.
  14. If you are using storage spaces, you don't want to enable raid in the bios. Just leave the bios to deault And in storage spaces you want to setup collumns to 2 for the full performance of raid 10, otherwise, its basically the performance of a single disk or raid 1. Don't do the mixed array with storage spaces and disk managemnt, just messier and more likely to have issues.
