    manikyath reacted to Fasauceome in How many case fans?   
    Well if OP had chosen a non-g CPU for this build, it would likely have been the 1200, but the 2200g is better and cheaper so even if it has integrated graphics it was sensible to pair with a discrete GPU.

    go to the website of these vareous pieces of software, look at their recommended specs, and pick the card that covers these best, and suits the budget best. you're in a "corporate" environment => you look at the requirements to decide what you buy.
     
    also, we're not blind, we can read font size <whatever default is> just fine

    manikyath got a reaction from mechtecs in Low Power Server with VMs for RV   
    okay, that's what i needed.
    few notes:
    - that's not gonna run on a single low power device, it simply wont.
    - GPU passtrough VMs and low power dont mix. GPU passtrough in itself can already be tricky on platforms that were designed with it in mind, low power platforms obviously were not. and on that note, chances are you'll increase your "low power" box's power consumption by more than the power draw of a mini pc, and it would cost more per VM to implement than just buying a cheap mini pc and bolting it to the before mentioned TVs.
    - the more logical solution here is to put all the features you need in a low power box, run a single VM for the firewall, and use mini PCs (or honestly.. raspberry pi?) for the vareous TVs.
     
    also, mechanical storage and bumpy roads arent a good idea, i better hope you're planning on powering down this box when driving.
     
    i'd say that what you're trying to achieve is an interesting idea, but is vastly impractical, to a level where i couldnt even write you up a complete list of potential issues you need to keep in mind, because i may as well just write up a list of components to this project, because that will most likely be easier to manage.

    manikyath got a reaction from myselfolli in Low Power Server with VMs for RV   
    why would you want to run VMs on unraid on a low power box?

    manikyath got a reaction from TechyBen in Looking into 3D printing   
    dont bother with monoprice, they're just rebrands, most of them wanhao. if you want a monoprice, find the original manufacturer and buy from them, chances are they're even more widely available.
     
    also, dont bother with printers with a print bed smaller than 200x200, they're absolutely useless for anything other than silly widgets.
     
    that said, given the price of a roll of PLA, and lessons learned on my own.. in short $200 isnt a good budget. any money you save goes into time spent making the thing do decent prints. also, over the past, lets say about 4kg of fillament (about 6 spools), i've spent more than your budget on replacement parts, and quality of life upgrades, on top of the price of the fillament itself.
     
    a 3D printer isnt a toy or gadget, it's a piece of machinery that requires maintenance, and is expected to have a certain amount of upkeep to stay within quality expectations.

    no.. just no..
     
    the only reason you'd get a portable desktop setup, is if you have to move spaces semi-regularly (for example teens who go between mom/dad house in a divorced family situation)

    actually, in builds where cable management options are an absolute zero, sata pretzels do make things a bit more tidy.

    the general rule of thumb about 32GB ram is if you need to ask if you need it, you dont need it. (because if you do, you'll know you do)

    manikyath got a reaction from DriftMan in Why people use MacOS?   
    because they like it. it's a free world, and preferences are those of individuals.
     
    case in point:
    1) MacOS has bad support for software
    - it has a text editor, a webbrowser, and an easy way to download silly game apps for time wasting. that is all literally 90% of computers will ever see.
    2) No Gaming or just few games
    - see above
    3) Less piracy ( good for some and bad for other )
    - ass opposed to what? windows 10.. yeah.. about that..
    4) Poor performance ( if not hackintosh )
    - see point 1, again.
    5) No Nvidia support which means no CUDA/RTX for 3D/Video editing artists. ( if not hackintosh )
    - see point 1, again.
    6) Outdated UI design / no customization ( everything literally looks identical to 2011 iPhone on 2018 MacOS or for example their Store icon looks like it was made by someone on Fiverr for 5$ )
    - as opposed to my dad having his first windows 10 experience right now.. and just about ready to get back to preferring windows XP over windows 7. for more, refer to point 1.
     
    i'm not a OSX user, not even if macbooks were free, but the simple fact is that familiarity, the "one size fits all" mentality, and the simplicity appeal to a lot of people.

    manikyath got a reaction from Jaok in How strong can intergrated graphics in a cpu be?   
    in theory, an iGPU can be just as powerful as a "real" GPU, but in practisce you'll always deal with the issue of die space, memory limitations, and power target.
     
    in a sense the more powerful the iGPU, the more the CPU needs to be cut down. hence why we dont have a ryzen 7 with iGPU, for example.

    manikyath got a reaction from Electronics Wizardy in GPU pass-though on linux??   
    from experience.. you'll be back on windows in no time..
    if the majority of your software is on windows, you'll just end up in the virtual machine constantly.
    it's a pain to set up, you'll need to shove more hardware into the same box to make it tick, you're working with piles of really specific software and configurations,  and so on..
     
    also, manjaro linux is ghastly to use on a daily basis.. i did... and i went straight back to ubuntu derivatives because a church bench is more comfortabnle than an ant's nest.
     
    if you're not doing this for the sake of being a linux enthousiast (as in, doing it more for the fun of setting it up than the actual usability) you may as well just dont.
