  1. Perfect. So I guess anything is possible. So this project is a go!
  2. I was hoping to use it as a box for VMs. So I'm not too concerned about the video card, but more the CPU and memory. I've been thinging about the following... Intel i5-6500 MSI B150 Socket 1151 ATX Mbd 64GB Ram. Or is that overkill? I currently have a i7-4790K running with 32GB ram (maxed out) and can manage 6 VMs but I need more Ram so looking to build a new system for it. Regards M
  3. Hi all, I have a question about an ATX case. I recently came across an old ATX case I had in storage. It's an old Gateway 2000 mini tower case which is an ATX form factor. From around the year 1995-96. I used to work in Gateway and seeing the case has brought back some good memories working there and so I'm thinking of starting a new build around this case. However, my question is although it's an ATX case and an ATX motherboard should fit, would I run into any problems given that the case is over 20 years old. No cable management space and not a lot of ventilation so won't be runnin
  4. After weeks of getting no where with this issue. I just tested it again. Now it works! Nothing has changed on my side. Last update appears to be 11th Jan. Last time I tried to run the VM was 3 days ago and nothing. Now it's fine!! I hate when that happens. I'd rather know what caused the issue.
  5. Nothing shown in the bios for virtualisation, however when I check in Task Manager I can see Virtualisation is set to Enabled.
  6. Hi, It's an i7 4790K 32GB Ram. Virtualization was enabled as it worked. I haven't been in the bios since then but I'll go in now and check if it's still enabled.
  7. Hi all, I'm having problems trying to start VMs in Hyper-V on Windows 10 Pro. This all worked fine up to a while ago. I hadn't used Hyper-V for maybe a year give or take but up to then it had all worked. Now it won't start any VM. I've tried creating a new VM for Windows server 2012 but I can't even get to the point to install the OS. Hyper-V starts fine, I can create a VM, assign memory, VHD etc point it to the ISO or CD drive etc and then open the VM. However it's when I then click on the Start button that it bombs out with an error: The application encountered an err
  8. Have a solution. Intel NUC.
  9. Thanks for the suggestions guys. I've had a look as the MSI boards and the more I look at them, the more I like the NUC. A big factor for me is getting power to the system. I can't fit a big PSU in there so the NUC is a nice solution for that. It's also perfect in terms of size. just a little over 11cm x 11cm and 3cm in height and that's including the case. It's a bit pricey in my part of the world, but I think it's a perfect solution. It might even fit into the more modern 64C version of the case. Thanks again.
  10. Wow, hadn't thought of that. Perfect solution! That was easy
  11. Hi all, I'm starting a case mod of an old Commodore 64 (Bread bin style case) and I'm trying to decide on what motherboard to use with this. I'm hoping that maybe someone here has done something similar and can offer advice on the best choice of motherboard with an APU that will work ok for basic gaming. In terms of the case, it's small in there. Not much in the way of heigth for a large heatsink and not much, if nothing at all in terms of airflow. So this baby has to run cool so it isn't going to be a beast of a machine, but I would like it to be able to do some minor 3D gaming

  13. Hi Guys, this may be a silly question, but I'm new to Nvidia Surround and can't find a solution. Basically I have 2 monitors (3rd on the way) and I've configured Nvidia surround. All works perfectly except, when I want to watch a Youtube video at full screen. What I want is to be able to open a video on one full monitor while still being able to use the other monitor for other things etc. but what is happening is the video is expanding across both screens. Now, I'm able to get this to work when I don't enable surround. It still "looks" like one large display but then in Windows 8.1
  14. I'll be at my desk, but sitting back about 3 feet for racing. So I'm swaying towards a monitor. Both monitors I'm looking at are 1080p. So again, the 24" seems to be the best option. Thanks guys.
  15. The 24" would be the cheapest option by far saving me a lot of cash and deep down I agree with you in regards it being the best for productivity. Just when I'm sitting back for the sims, I can't help feel that the height of the 24" isn't enough to give a real sense of immersion. That said, if I got the 24" and keep the cash for the Occulos Rift when/ it appears... So thats 2 for the monitor and 1 for the TV.
