    Strix 1080Ti or 2080?

    I bought a Gaming X 1080ti last week for $714.00. I am keeping it in the plastic until the 2080 benchmark embargo drops which is Thursday the 14th. If the 2080 is much faster I will return the 1080ti and pre-order a 2080. I would buy the strix gtx 1080ti and just not open it until the benchmarks come out. You have 30 days at newegg or B&H as long as you don't remove the plastic cellophane.

    Access is denied in CMD.

    You need to run cmd as admin, You can do that by right clicking on the cmd icon in the start menu and clicking run as administrator. Or by pressing left ctrl+ left shift + enter when hovered over the cmd icon. Or you could use powershell with admin

    I got this Macbook Pro with a display.. Problem.

    If it is a 2011-early 2013 MacBook Pro there were many lawsuits and is a recall for GPUs that kept failing see link below. Most of the issues only happened in the 15 inch model https://www.macrumors.com/2017/05/20/apple-ends-2011-macbook-pro-repair-program/ https://www.apple.com/support/macbookpro-videoissues/

    Ryzen 1600x bottleneck 980ti?

    No it will not bottlneck see videos below. 3200 speed RAM is a must with Ryzen to get the most out of the platform Like someone said above if you can afford in X370 board they are committing to that platform until 2020 and with Zen 2 it will work.

    M.2 SSD not being detected anywhere

    Make sure you cleared CMOS. I find it hard to believe you killed an ssd that fast.

    My new gaming rig

    Looks good, Just an FYI you can not do RAID 10 without at least 4 drives.

    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA42J6E91774 That should work according to this article I am not sure if you are in US or not http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3525376/compatibility-compaq-6300-geforce-gtx-1050.html

    Making a Windows network for my school

    A VMWare host sounds like a good option to host virtual machines You are going to need at least one Domain Controller running DNS, DHCP, Active Directory Services, Windows File Services which could be on Server 2012 R2 or Server 2016. You can make cifs shares which is what the Windows File Services allow you set setup for sharing files and some programs. Those things can all be hosted on a single VM. SCCM is Windows native way of installing programs remotely that has extra cost and would need its own server or VM. This is systems task not a networking task you do not need a CCNA for this.

    From what it says here it can not support the 75 W https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Hp-Compaq-Elite-8300-SFF-psu-graphics-upgrade/td-p/5743592

    Card will not fit in case. I worked at a company that had 100s of these PCs you need a case/form factor with full size PCI slots. The best card that would fit would be a GT1030 if that even. It also wont work since the PCIE slots are only rated for 25 W. This cards has no external power inputs. https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Hp-Compaq-Elite-8300-SFF-psu-graphics-upgrade/td-p/5743592

    Share VPN Connection with SSH?

    So what it sounds like to me is that you need a rule to allow your client to get to the remote server via SSH port 22. In the VPN solutions I have used Forti-Gates I build a rule on both sides of firewall allowing 192.168.xxx.xxx /16 access to 128.xxx.xxx.xxxx /32 via SSH port 22. Or just move your client to that same setup in the 128 space. Again is this website externally facing and you are just trying to get access to it via SSH.

    Share VPN Connection with SSH?

    Are you truly using ports 1234 and 2345 or is that just for example. If you have configured your VPN correctly you should be able to access and on both sides of VPN. SSH uses port 22. Also for future reference if these servers are not externally facing your internal IPs should be in the /16, /8, or ranges.

    What do you think about my build?

    Upgrade your CPU/Moterboard to Coffee-Lake, which would require DDR4 RAM as well. If you are only a 1080p gamer upgrade the GTX 750ti last Your RAM and storage is not balanced with your GPU and CPU. Your NVMe drive is limited by the Z97 chipset and you have to do some crazy workloads to use 32gb of RAM.

    Current Rig Upgrade Yes or No?

    Maybe get an NVME SSD and if you are playing at 1440p at greater than 60 Hz/FPS I would upgrade to an 1080ti
