    Choosing a monitor for £500

    Hello I need some help with buying a monitor. At the moment I am in the early stages of building a new pc but I am waiting to see what components to get. I do a mixture of playing games and editing video (also colour corrections) so ideally I want a monitor which is 1440p IPS 144hz 27 inch and preferably 10 bit but 8 bit is still fine for most of my work. I have a budget of about £500. These where the two monitors I was looking at: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/LFRzK8/acer-xv272u-pbmiiprzx-270-2560x1440-144-hz-monitor-xv272u-pbmiiprzx https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/RPCD4D/gigabyte-aorus-ad27qd-sa-270-2560x1440-144-hz-monitor-aorus-ad27qd-sa I wanted to know if AORUS AD27QD is a better pick to save my self £55 and get the acer xc272U or if you have any other suggestions feel free to mention them. Thanks
  2. Hello, https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/bGCDGG I wanted some help with a build I’m planning. For a little background information on me, I will mainly be using the rig for a mix of gaming and video editing as well as colour correction. I also want to use AMD graphics cards as I’m coming from a Mac and once I’m done with this machine I want to be able to use the GPU as an external GPU for my MacBook Pro. I have a budget for about £1000-1200 and that has to include the monitor as well. I want one that Is IPS and 1440p preferably 144hz. Also, I’ve seen that there is lots of new computer parts being released recently, is there anything I should wait for? I don’t mind waiting a little if it would ensure me a better pc. Any advice would be welcome and UK prices please. Thanks

    Finding an NVME m.2 ssd for under £100

    How we'll do these drives fair for reliability? I was looking at these as they where good for the price but was not sure if a somewhat named brand would be better for reliability?

    Finding an NVME m.2 ssd for under £100

    As far as I was aware NVMe ssd where a lot faster compared to SATA ssd. For video editing the faster the ssd the better.

    Nas build help and advice

    this build is along the lines I think I want to go with but is still quite expensive. It works out to about £524.21.

I like the look of the software but wondered if you had a idea of how I would set up each example ie: - Plex server (might have to transcode video files) = (seems to run on almost everything) - UniFi video server for multiple POE cameras = (which can run on windows 7/8/10, Ubuntu 16.04/14.04 and Debian 7) - file server for Mac and Pc = (freenas) so it would be three different virtual mashes so each one has a free space to run?

    Nas build help and advice

    Hello, I am planning on upgrading most of my house with UniFi cameras, cat 7 and a new switch. I thought It was a good idea to add a nas to my setup at this time as well . So far the only component I’m set on is getting three Seagate 6 TB IronWolf, the rest I don’t really mind. (These seem good for the price and reliable) In a previous post (https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1025826-building-nas-part-list-and-advice-needed/) I started to narrow down the options. I need this nas to be able to be a: - Plex server (might have to transcode video files) - UniFi video server for multiple POE cameras - file server for Mac and Pc - down the line if possible i would like to be able to use the server as a scratch disk to edit on fcpx off of it (not high priority, this might be a task for another server build) So far I have been only considering Unraid (which I have heard is slow) and FreeNas but if there is another suggestion I can try that. I’m not great with command line stuff but I can learn if necessary prefer a GUI where I can. I wanted to try and keep it cheep so excluding the drives I want it to come to no more then £400 but £200 would be best if posable. I don’t mind used equipment as long as it would be somewhat reliable. Thanks

    Building Nas part list and advice needed

    the bit I'm struggling to find information about is how any of these nas's work with macOS. I had seen this https://lumaforge.com/jellyfish im guessing is custom software and will work only with macOS but whenever I have made a usb and formate it to FAT32 to work with Mac and pc it always has a transfer limit of 4gb. Will this be true for the server as well or is there a formate I can use that overcomes this?

    Building Nas part list and advice needed

    Most computers would be running through switch to nas. But down the line would think about putting a 10gig PCIe rj45 card in for more speed later. House is wired up with cat 7 completely not sure if I would upgrade for a white as the rate I would fill it up could take a year to a few years, depending on projects and usage I have never use linux before, I'm not a big fan on the command line and prefer a GUI when I can. But I guess I could learn it.

    Building Nas part list and advice needed

    I just picked one randomly there are loads like this but was just for the example. With buying older pc a lot of them only have 1 sata III and 2 sata II. So I thought this was a necessity? Also good for expansion in the future Do you know what the speed differences are with the ssd's. I thought unraid might be best for my needs but I have heard good things about free nas Would I get faster speed if I went with more smaller drives (four 4tb vs three 6tb) or is it better to stick with bigger drives? Would the drives I get from the external drive be okay for a nas it seems to be similar to this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-BarraCuda-Internal-Drive-Cache/dp/B07H289S7C/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1548455239&sr=8-3&keywords=8tb%2Bhard%2Bdrive%2Binternal&th=1
  12. Hello, After watching this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_B8AFvguqo) and looking at prices for pre build nas's as well as external hard drives. I thought it now best to invest into a nas. I use both MacOS and Windows, with multiple computers on the network. My part list at the moment looks like: - pc (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BUDGET-GAMING-PC-I5-CPU-8GB-RAM-500GB-HD-COMPUTER-COOL-MASTER-PC-GIGABYTE-PC/113591522194?hash=item1a72951392:g:vToAAOSwO7dcSKda:rk:1:pf:1&frcectupt=true) - hard drives x3 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-IronWolf-Internal-Systems-Workload/dp/B0767P5BYT/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1547838988&sr=8-1&keywords=ironwolf%2B4tb&th=1) - ssd x2 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-PLUS-Sata-Inch-Internal/dp/B01F9G43WU/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1547845267&sr=1-2&keywords=internal%2Bssd&refinements=p_n_feature_keywords_browse-bin%3A2103093031&th=1) - SAS SATA 8-port PCI-E 6Gb RAID Controller Card - IT mode flashed (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/IBM-LSI-SAS-SATA-8-port-PCI-E-6Gb-RAID-Controller-Card-9208-8i-IT-Mode-9211-8I/192660862922?epid=8023869107&hash=item2cdb7b77ca:g:zQsAAOSwamhbn4do:rk:14:pf:0) - cables for sas to sata - not sure which one I need - (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cable-For-Lsi-Megaraid-9240-8I-9211-8I-9261-8I-9220-8I-Raid-Controller-Card-si/132631076775?hash=item1ee16d9fa7:g:Uk0AAOSwdfZbArJE:rk:4:pf:1 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cable-For-Lsi-Megaraid-9240-8I-9211-8I-9261-8I-9220-8I-Raid-Controller-Card-vc/123146176340?hash=item1cac158754:g:YbwAAOSwcOVbAv82:rk:5:pf:1) - os unraid This all comes out to £715 this would give 12tb of useable storage. Im not sure if to use three 6tb drives which are faster or use four 4th drives which I think would give me a faster read and wright speed. I mainly intent this server to do a few things for me. One being storing all the films and tv shows I have on random hard drives to create a plex server to watch shows on it. I want this server to be able to do some light transcoding by turning all the films and tv shows into the same format but might outsource this to another computer. Also to be a backup and archive for my work such as video projects and photos have shot. Please could you tell me if I’m going about the right way of doing this or if I would be better off going down another cheaper direction. Thanks

    HDMI, network switch and Ethernet

    So the Thin client would replace the HDMI to Ethernet converter. How much would they cost? could you send me a example of one please.
