  1. Dell optiplex 9010 HELP

    Like this? http://www.pny.com/geforce-gtx-1050-2gb I think you need this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2F85KK1580
  2. Dell optiplex 9010 HELP

    The minitower looks like a full high GPU will fit, the only issue is the PSU is only 200 watts. You won't be able to run anything that takes PCI power so pick a card without it like a 1050/460. Note:Nvidias website says a 300W PSU is recommended for 1050. Upgrade at your own risk.
  3. Yeah that's not worth the trouble. I though you were doing it virtually from different computers. It would be cheaper to buy a bunch of refurbished Optiplexs and monitors than try and do something like this.
  4. Budget ATX motherboard suggestions

    I show that one as $120. A lot more.
  5. Budget ATX motherboard suggestions

    Was looking at both of those. I have an asus z170 board that has been running nonstop for 6 months with no issues. I have no ASRock experience, but I'm sure they are fine too. Z170 will let you OC if you ever want to.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B012NH08B8/?tag=pcpapi-20 How much do you need intel Lan? Will Realtec cut it?
  7. Need some advice from people...

    8350? That would help.
  8. Yes. You would create virtual machines and give each of them some of the CPUs power (Ram and threads). Each user could log in and use their machines. You would need to run software to let them do it at the same time, and you would need an operating system for each VM.
  9. Use this so everyone can see your build with one link. https://pcpartpicker.com/
  10. pc build

    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117726&cm_re=7700k-_-19-117-726-_-Product 7700k is onsale right now for 309, but I don't know if you want to buy the MOBO separate and pay the difference. Just a heads up.
  11. Can I watch real 4k ?

    Rest your resolution to 4k and then in the display settings, under scale and layout (if you are using Win10) you can change the text and Apps to make things readable.
  12. How do I know which screws are for the SSD?

    I believe they will be the fine thread screws from the bag on the left. Go slow and don't strip the threads.
  13. Master Boot Record Error

    Do you have your USB/CD for windows? If not do you have another computer to make one? You can use the install CD to repair your MBR. https://www.pcworld.com/article/3113585/windows/how-to-repair-windows-master-boot-record-and-fix-your-bricked-pc.html
  14. Zotac 1080Ti Poor Overclocking

    My EVGA SC2 is about the same. It boosts itself up to 1960 or so and will sit there all day. If I apply a 50 Mhz OC it will crash. It will do about 20 on core and 50 on memory, that's it. Now with that said, it is still a 1080ti and does anything I want it to do in any game I have, but it's not a great overclocker.
  15. Updating an old prebuild

    Do you have the computer make and model? Like on a sticker somewhere on the computer case maybe? How powerful is your PSU? You will need a PCI cable to power a GPU powerful enough to run those games at high settings, but a 1050 or 460 with no pci could run them at lower settings. Will a graphics card fin in your case?
