  1. So on ebay I am able to go for the optiplex 7010, however, they want me to pick out the specs for the machine meaning it is mostly out of i3, i5 and i7 3rd gen 4gb or 8 gb ram and 120gb ssd - as it is low demanding should I go with i3 3rd gen 4gb + 120gb ssd or i5 ? Both are around the same price about £10 - £15 more expensive. in total being about £120 - £140+range or I can go 200ge + 4gb 2666mhz ram with 500 ssd for about £135 and add a usb 4 card for like £15 tipping it to £150
  2. Okay, thanks for your help - I will message here again if I need anything else
  3. when looking at the optiplex 7010 what type of specs should I be looking for within the system (Optiplex Search) I am seeing in ebay and even amazon about i3, i5 and i7 versions with either 4gb, 8gb or 16gb. While looking at a 200ge system I can easily build one for about £150 or even less. I know I don't need anything demanding but I just want to make sure I get the right system. The setup we had originally was that we had a small drive bay next to are readynas so we can easily take out or insert the drives we want meaning we didn't need any big cases.
  4. The R510: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR11.TRC2.A0.H0.Xr510.TRS0&_nkw=r510&_sacat=0 They seem to be going for a decent amount of money but if I find or grab one at the right price I will be able to have it within my budget. They look like they range between £100+. (idk if the link will work). The DL180g6: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_osacat=0&_odkw=r510&_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1313.TR1.TRC0.A0.H0.Xdl180g6.TRS0&_nkw=dl180g6&_sacat=0 These also seem to be in the same situation as the r510. I spoke to other people sometime ago about this and they said I wouldn't need anything too powerful - maybe just a single core cpu etc as all I am doing is transferring files and playing movies off the drive (network) within are house. some people even said go for 200ge + 4/8gb ram etc and with the right software that will be fine and they said that can be done for £100 - £150. for the past years using these drives through USB have been perfectly fine and we have experienced no problems.
  5. So we have are files and movies all on external drives what we connect to the readynas (via usb 3), however, we can take out and use the drives inside as normal hdd. In total including backup drives I say we would have about 6 drives. I can push the budget up to £200 btw. Hope this helps.
  6. Hello, I am firstly going to say that I know nothing about servers (networking etc) so I am open for learning. Me and my father are looking for a new home server that can handle daily file transfer and video streaming from the server (whenever we get a new movie we RIP it onto the server in a .iso format so we can watch it in the house on a WD box) so the rest if the family can watch movies easily. We already have storage (50tb including backups) what we have connected to an old readynas from netgear what now has broken. We have put aside £150 for this project and we want to be able to achieve 1 gigabit transfer rate and can be operational daily with frequent file transfers from computers around the house. I have done some research into it but I want to see ur view. Please ask for further information if needed. Sorry if there are spelling/ grammar mistakes as I am typing on phone at midnight.
  7. Yes, however, I have never used it before and I don't know if I would feel comfortable doing so. But I do know you can get some good deals on there. https://derby.craigslist.org/
  8. Hello, I am in the market for a new laptop for college - I have a budget of £450 and I am looking for something that can handle daily use with a good 5 hours+ battery - The screen size should be at least 15" if possible. Other from this I don't really mind, as long as it is a nice sleek looking laptop what is Gray, Black or White. Thank You LTT Geniuses.

This is one of my first post in a forum so any feed back would be nice, thank you and have a good day.
  10. I kind of gathered that from the start - I was just interested in the hows - like the tech side of it but if it is just as simple as it being two res like I assumed it doesn't matter. Thanks, have a nice day.
  11. Hello, I am currently running a desktop setup with two 24'' 1080p Monitors and One 1440p 27'' Monitor. Order of monitors: 24", 27'', 24''. I have had it for about a month now and I have came to the conclusion that my two 1080p monitors look like they have zoomed up more around the task bar and browsing the web/ YouTube etc, you can also tell when I am right clicking on the desktop because the menu seems really zoomed - I do not know why this is but can it be due to upscale of the monitor as they are extended through the 27" one it is making it bigger so the difference between windows being dragged on isn't that significant or is it due to a video driver - I have a 2070 Super meaning I obviously use Nvidia Drivers (Geforce Experience). Thanks for your help.
  12. This machine will mostly be for work etc, however, I don't mind changing settings for the best performance etc - if that is what u mean. So if it runs best at med I will go med and not high - some games will probably be like CS:GO and battlefields along with the small games.
  13. Hello, I am starting collage etc this year and I am wanting to buy a new laptop, I am looking for something that can handle simple photo editing and video editing along with the ability to play some decent games fps etc. I am looking for a decent battery life as well something that can last about 10 hours if not 6-7 hours what might be pushing it, idk. I also don't mind if it is Intel or AMD, will prob be Intel tho' as they have way more on the market than AMD. This machine will solo be for collage tho' and doesn't need to be stupid, if you can find some good alternatives that would save me money please suggest. My budget is about £600 - £700 at most. Thank you.
  14. Looks like I have sorted it out, I did a bios update (month or two out) and the smart fan control started to work (Hardware Monitor edits). The motherboard I have is x570 MSI MPG GAMING EDGE WiFi. Speedfan still doesn't find my fans tho'.
