  1. My Little farm is only 2 PCs for now. The First is a HP Z800 Workstation with 2 Intel Xeon X5672 3.20GHz quad core hyperthreaded cpus, 24GB of DDR3-1333 ECC Registered memory, and a Reference GTX 970. This one is Running full bore when I'm not using it and it gets an average of 235802 ppd. The Second is running light because its my HTPC/NAS so I don't want to overwork it while we are trying to watch movies or stream stuff. Its a Phanteks Enthoo Pro Case, Gigabyte GA-P43-ES3G Motherboard with a Xeon X5450 3GHz quad core cpu, 8GB of DDR2-667 memory and a Asus Radeon HD-7790 2GB Graphics card
  2. Nice! Sorry man, lol. I found a couple last night for my youtube commentators that have 2 xeon quad cores, 24GB of memory and a 1TB HDD for around $450.
  3. I did sort of the same thing but I bought a server/workstation instead of just the motherboard. HP Z800 with 2 x 2.67GHz quad core hyper threaded cpus and 12GB of ECC memory for $400. Heres a link to my setup when I bought it. Then I put 2 x Xeon X5672 quad core 3.20GHz hyper threaded cpus that I got for cheap in it. I also added another 12GB of ECC memory and a GTX970. Total with my 240GB SSD is about $1000-1100. Her is a link to the finished setup. Benchmarks and gaming on the system Le me know what you guys think about this for a budget set
  4. If the ISP has a cap they should also have a data tracker on their site. I had buckeye cable a while back and had to keep an eye on it.
  5. I was going back and forth between getting that router and getting the ASUS RT-AC68U AC1900. I decided on the ASUS based on lots of reviews and I just like ASUS. Its working phenomenally. It fast, stable, loaded with features and just plain works. Don't know about the Linksys, but I figured I'd tell you about the other option.
  6. I used yED Graph editor but inserted my own pictures of the items because the pictures they had sucked.
