  1. I have a case with a mother board ram cpu. I need to get hard drives either way i go so they are a wash so i need a SSD, Power supply. I was concerned that the CPU i have wouldn't hold up for multiple users. I have 3 kids with tablets 2 Play Stations and multiple PCs and Tvs with Plex so many opportunities for use. Right now they don't use it much but in the future I feel it would get used quite a bit? I know i can run it on that PC i have just don't want to set it up then have to redo it over in the near future. Also i think there was an issue with the MB i had i was going to send it out to be checked out and if expensive just toss it and replace with new one but still need to contact manufacturer. thanks again for the help.
  2. I have a old PC that I can use to make a Plex server but need to buy some parts. So I was thinking of buying an old server instead. I am looking for opinions and i am also looking for pros and cons of both. (link below of a potential server i was looking at). https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-PowerEdge-R620-Server-2-00GHz-16-Cores-32GB-RAM-4-Trays-/192757366586?hash=item2ce13bff3a The pc i have is a I7 2600k with 16BG of ram. thanks again for every ones help
  3. I found these 2 cards I know they are over 300 but i did a quick search and that under 300 dream died kinda quick. I don't see why one is about 50 bucks more then the other one? I dont see much of a difference in them. $322 - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=27N-0023-000U3 $369 - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=27N-0023-000U2
  4. I do have a budget i wish money was no object. I went with HD Radeon 6900 because I wanted to be able to run Different things on up to 3 screens and a TV with no issue and I would like it to be a good picture while doing it. I don,t need anything capable of 4K. I don't plan on overclocking but i would like to have the option encase the future would require me to. Those cards are more then i can spend I would say if i can stay under 300 for a video card that would be good. For the most part i am happy with the card i have. Occasionally one screen would not turn on so i would shut down PC and change port for that screen to a different one and it would work again. Other then that no problems that i know of. That window that i had spoken about popping up actually didn't close instantly. I am assuming it is the same but i have enclosed a pic of the screen. Thanks again for the suggestion.
  5. I do some gaming store lots of movies music and family photos. I use my PC to watch most of all my TV i watch. I use Skype while gaming and will also have the TV playing. I know it is overkill for what i need but i would rather have more then not enough and would rather have a PC last me a long time and not have to keep upgrading. Might make it a home server at some point but not sure yet.
  6. Hello and thank you all for your suggestions in advance. I am going to build a new PC and use some of the old parts temporarily. I want to be able to hook up 2 to 3 screens and a TV. I also want to set up 4 hard drives in a Raid 0+1 Case = Thermaltake Tower 900 (cause it looks awesome) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N1GP2GZ/?coliid=I21MELUK357WLB&colid=4RP6YS18VISN&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it CPU = i7-9700K https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HHN6KBZ/?coliid=I1V2N6TMOA0LZM&colid=2BRI7I7EF4HBC&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it Motherboard = I have narrowed down to 3 but i am open to options since i am not sure if they are good for my needs. Would like to stay under 300 like closer to $250ish dont care about brand just want good quality and to be fast. also with these motherboards do i need a raid card or is it built in (sorry raid illiterate) https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813145090 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813145110 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813145089 Hard drive = I have a 480gb SSD for my operating system and programs and i want to hook 4 of the following up for my Raid 0+1. If they are not the right ones please let me know. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822146116 Video card = My current card is AMD Radeon HD6900 I will start out using this card in the new PC and will need to get another and put this one back in the old pc for the kids to use. No idea what i should go with? ideas helpful. Thanks again for your time
  7. Not exactly no other issues. For a while i was getting a glitter effect when watching videos. Also the glitter effect was only in the video the rest of the screen was normal. The window that pops up is not during booting it is while the pc is on and i am using it and random from what i can tell. I believe i did clean and add new thermal paste on the CPU. On the video card i only removed the cover didn't take anything else apart. I will try removing the battery and see if the auto overclock starts working.
  8. Ok my system is a I7 2600K @3.4GHz 16Gb of ram 64bit Windows 10 sandisk 480GB SSD for operating system Video card is AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series (I have 2 Screens and a TV hooked to it now) Mother board MSI P67A - GD80 (Has a button to automatically overclock) So i installed a game eve and when i went to play i heard a Fan go into super speed and sounded like it was going to explode. So i opened up the PC and the dust was out of control. So i took off the stock fan that came with the CPU and the video card. Took the case off the video card full of dust cleaned everything and reinstalled. While installing the video card i hit the power button and PC started to turn on. Reached around quick to the back and flipped the switch on the power supply. when i turned on the PC it would just constantly restart over and over. Come to find out If i turn off the overclocking button on the mother board it would start up fine? So currently it works but I do get window that pops up and is black like a dos window with some writing that i cant read cause it flashes to fast. My plan is to build new and use old parts for a kids PC. but i need to figure out what part is the problem. I am guessing the CPU is fine so either the video card or the motherboard is dead (hopefully the Motherboard).? Any ideas is greatly appreciated. BTW I have tried to do a complete reinstall of windows no help. and i ran a check of the ram and i was told it is working correctly.
