    X58 Mobo

    I'd recommend asking here:

    New FHD monitor (24") for gaming

    For 2080 Ti I'd recommend 27" 1440p 144Hz

    What are you doing this valentine's day?

    I'm not doing anything special.

    Intel i7-980X Still Worth It?

    Xeons should be a lot cheaper than the i7-980X or i7-990X. I have a Xeon X5670 on my main PC I'd recommend checking this thread:

    General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

    How about quad-sli GTX 480's? :D https://www.legitreviews.com/evga-sr-2-motherboard-gets-a-custom-pc-case_1324

    Should I use both power connectors on my card?

    6+2 is the same as 8-pin connector and that is enough for the RX 580. It doesn't damage the card in any way, but you can connect the other power cable if you want to.
  8. At least my Xeon doesn't bottleneck my GTX 960 at all. Even my i7-950 (Xeon W3550) didn't bottleneck it.
  9. Most likely the CPU isn't going to be a bottleneck with a GTX 1050 Ti

    What is the oldest PC you consider still useful?

    For most things I'd be okay with something like a Core2 Duo E8400, 8GB RAM, dedicated graphics, Windows 7 or Linux. But I could live with a Pentium 4 HT 3.0GHz, at least 2GB RAM, dedicated graphics and some light Linux distro. With a PC like that I could browse the internet and watch 720p YouTube videos on VLC.

    What's the Origin of the Nickname You Go By?

    It's just my first name and numbers 1, 2 and 3.

    Matching Xeon processors

    Yes, you can. But I personally would get two E5450 3.0GHz CPU's
  13. X58 motherboards are pretty expensive and if you have a X58 mobo, you should get a cheap 6c/12t Xeon for it. The i7-930 is still a decent CPU but it's a lot worse than the cheap Xeons.

    Will a 50-60hz monitor work in Europe (50hz)?

    It should work

    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    ICL MikroMikko Ergo X from 1996. Made in Finland. Specs: Intel Pentium 133MHz, 64MB RAM, ATI Mach 64, Sound Blaster 16, 1GB HDD
  16. Dell Vostro 420 is Core2 Duo/Quad based. Does your PC have a i7-9xx or i7-8xx series CPU? Both should be just fine for a GTX 1050 Ti.

    2600 vs 9600k

    9600K has higher single-core performance and the 2600 has better multi-core performance. How much is the price difference?
  18. The newest games that I own are Prey from 2017 and DOOM from 2016. If I have time maybe I'll put the old GTX 660 to my Q9550 @ 3.87GHz system and try them on it. GTA 5 on the last gen consoles is pretty much a different game. It has a lot worse graphics than the PC version even at minimum settings
  19. That motherboard doesn't have a standard power connectors. Intel Core2 Quad's can still play most games. Not a long time ago my little sister had a Q9500 2.83GHz with 8GB DDR3 1066MHz RAM and GTX 1050. She was able to play Skyrim, Witcher 3 etc at 1080p just fine. I also tried GTA V (back in early 2016) on a Q6600 @ 3.0GHz, 8GB DDR2 800MHz, GTX 660 and it was able to play it at 1080p with mixed normal and high settings.

    Smartwatches are still a thing. I have a first gen Motorola Moto 360 and I really like it, but the battery is almost completely dead on it.

    General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

    Have anyone else tried Cinebench R15 Extreme? You can get it from here. Here is what my Xeon X5670 @ 4.32GHz got:

    Building a cheap htpc for kodi.

    Okay. Your integrated graphics card can only output up to 4K 30Hz via HDMI. For Plasma TV it's enough since it can output lower resolutions at 60Hz. If you upgrade to some 4K OLED then you probably should get a dedicated graphics card.

    Using a TV as a Monitor.

    You should use the native 1366x768 resolution. 1080p downscaling is pretty bad on many cheaper TV's and even if it was good it wouldn't look as good as the native resolution when using PC.

    Building a cheap htpc for kodi.

    The integrated Intel HD 4400 should be enough for video playback. What kind of TV you have?

    Any use for this router and server?

    I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 III. I used it to host a few Minecraft servers, website and forums.
