  1. Been wanting to set up a NAS for a while now but the NAS devices (min 4 drives) are around 600+(cdn). right now i am useing my gaming machine to run a plex server and network share, but it requires me to keep my (mid-range?) Gaming rig running all the time. So question is, is better to go for a 4 drive NAS device thats capable of plex (usually like 1.7ghz with 1g ram) or build a cheap, efficient pc to do the task (will be bigger, but more potential for extra tasks or drives) In which case, what would you reccommend? Theres embedded boards with lower end chips for decent prices online, or should you go for some used, like 2 or 3 gens old chips? I realize ram capacity and speed could be important for a nas, but how much processing power do you need to run a solid plex server? Current rig is ryzen 3600, 16GB 3600mhz ram, rtx 2060, asus tuf x570 mobo, supernova 850P PSU. Storage drives are two WD red 4TB drives, i plan to expand with 2- 6TB or 8TB drives next. Have had bad situations with raid and dont use it anymore.
  2. Have you ordered from them? Are they good? Do they have canadian locations? Or ship from USA?
  3. Hello all I am getting into hobby electronics and have some projects in mind, but dont know where to get components, i remember back when radioshack had stuff but now its "the source" and has almost nothing, and i dont want to buy everything on amazon or ebay. Ive been doing some googling but i dont know what sites are legit and reliable. Can anyone tell me where i can get components? Preferebly with fast and affordable shipping in canada, i live in southern manitoba.
  4. Haha, that got me too Thanks, and yes its a crappy mobo, it looked good but in use it sucks, i tried overclocking a bit, but even a 4.3 crashes in a cinebench, and ive got a 212 evo cooler keeping it under 50 deg. So overclocking isnt an option lol. But yeah its time for a new cpu when amd's lowest model from last year the 2200g has better performance lol. Waiting out for the new ryzen series to build a new rig.
  5. Just replaced my r9 380 with a new rtx 2060, on my fx 8350 build. I see alot of people still saying the fx 8350 is still pretty good, but even useing the 2060 im having bottleneck issues on division 2, with my cpu at 100%, gpu at 60% and not getting more than 55 frames. i Dug through all the settings and im at high, 1080p, no vsync. The fx8350 definately underperforms in modern gaming.
  6. No, they have too many large programs to reinstall, and i didnt want to loose anything.
  7. Moved my ssd to a new build, installed the drivers, checked the mobo site, has nothing but lan, audio, and video drivers, all of which i have already. Everything seems fine, but the game i play, catan, is suddenly crashing now, is there something i missed?
  8. Huh, didnt know newegg was on ebay, who knows, i would try emailing newegg and nvidea about this, if it was purchased close enough to the date they just might hook you up. But personally i wouldnt expect it. Because im pessimistic
  9. Its actually really wierd, the reciept shows you pay for the game, then discounts the gpu by the amount you paid.
  10. It literally just restarted a couple days ago with metro added to the choices. There was about 3-7 days with no bundle at all. And yeah they email it to you after purchase, the bundle has to show up in your reciept.
  11. Yeah ive played all the games people are saying anthem is like, and ill be playing division 2 aswell so if they're similar id prolly drop one. And yeah i like multiplayer but i am more content-motivated, less than a day of solo gameplay would be boring, and exodus sounds really good. Yeah, i feel like after i beat the single player it would pretty much be a tech demo for me, i still have overwatch if i need some multiplayer fps. I think ill get alot more play time out of metro, even if i havent played the first two. Thanks guys, i think ill grab metro then, no point in getting bf5 just to see real-time ray tracing first hand if theres a game ill enjoy more.
  12. I just got a new rtx 2060, it comes with 1 of three games, battlefield V, anthem, or metro exodus. Which game do you think is best? I hear anthem sucks, and ive played destiny 2, warframe, division, and im getting division 2 with my new cpu, so i dont want anthem. But metro exodus has good reviews (however ive never played a metro game) and battlefield v has real-time ray tracing wich would be nice to check out since i bought an rtx card, and i havent gotten a fps for a while. What do you think? Is metro so awesome i should pick it, even though ive got no experience with the first two games, or is battlefield v good enouph to pick? As i have heard alot of bad stuff about it.
  13. Doing a couple builds for my parents and i was thinking 8gb ram should still be enough right? Useing dual 4gb sticks for dual-channel. The one pc plays sims 4, and board games, surfs facebook and youtube, and streams netflix and amazon, not exactly a power user, while the other plays movies and streams to the tv, or plays card games and browses facebook and youtube. (Both pcs occasionally used for minecraft when the grandkids are visiting). As sim4 is the heaviest load it will have 8gb should still be lots right?
  14. 1070s are around 600+cnd, and im not buying ebay, so thats not an option.
