    Brennan Price reacted to wkdpaul in I'm new and need help with converting a old laptop into a gaming desktop pc   
    As mentioned by @Kisai, that laptop is no gaming laptop, you won't be able to do much with it.
     
    But, you could always look at the following videos for inspiration, while it may not be exactly what you need, it's a start ;

    Ok so I'm going to be the first to say it... You cannot simply "turn" a laptop into a desktop as they use very different part form factors and components. Your best bet here would be to see if you can find a desktop in your local market that someone is perhaps willing to give away, and then you upgrade it from there. 
     
    Otherwise, you are stuck to current laptop specs which won't run much at all.

    Stupid question: Have you enabled RDP on that Win7 machine?
    (Considering that you also deal with Windows Server 2008, highly doubt you’d forget enabling it)
     
    Could you also show a screenshot of the error?
     
    I’ve looked at your previous posts to see how you’ve actually installed Windows 7 on the Mac Pro, but couldn’t figure it out. Is it a VM?

    AKG K712's maybe? But they don't have a inline volume controller.
    They've got a detachable cable.
    They're lighter at 235g.
    They've got a really good soundstage which is great for gaming. 
    I dont personally think they have a "gaming aesthetic."

    While it would theoretically, I believe the reason it fails is because it is only emulating the PCIe generation rather than physically cutting off the lanes with the hardware available. The setting is likely there though so that the lanes can be split across multiple PCIe devices more evenly, as well as be a way to give a certain device more bandwidth than what it would have if the settings were left untouched.

    Unless OP's going to be OC'ing thats WAY overkill end up coughing up like 5x the cost the PC for a single GPU muchless TWO of them and 30 series.

    Brennan Price reacted to FakeKGB in I want to have your opinion   
    Do you already own the 3060 Ti?
    If not, how do you suggest buying it for $0?
     
    Also, 1x8GB RAM no. Get 2x8GB - makes a big difference.
    You don't need the CPU cooler - 11400 stock cooler will work fine for now.

    Honestly, the first thing I would probably do is take out that single stick of RAM and replace it for two matching sticks for dual channel. Doing that alone will likely give you a much longer lasting rig with just that small change, especially since games prefer dual channel over single. Doesn't have to be an upgrade to 16GB though, I reckon it would struggle to reach that amount without a CPU upgrade, this is of course dependent on the games you play and any work related tasks that you do as well.

    Brennan Price got a reaction from Brandon90791 in Advice for upgrading my PC   
    The power supply sticks out like a sore thumb considering the price of the rest of the build. I completely understand that the whole rig won't use anywhere near as much as 430W as it is, but, it is also only Bronze rated and has few, if not no measures in place to prevent damage in case it fails or encounters a power surge. Not to mention the fact that if you did want to buy a GPU eventually, you will likely have to buy another power supply. 
     
    I'd say it makes sense to spend more money on a better power supply now in order to spend less with future upgrades as well as being able to keep a better component longevity.

    So my thinking here is that on your new CPU, the lanes aren't functioning properly/your CPU can't handle full PCIe 3 16x bandwidth (even though it should).
     
    The reasoning behind the 9500gt working though even on the full 16x slot is because it does not saturate PCIe 3 16x speeds, it is PCIe 2.0 x16 instead which is effectively equal to PCIe 3 8x I believe?? 
     
    When you put your 1060 into a PCIe 3 4x slot, you are capping the bandwidth and therefore it will work just like the 9500gt does.

    I'm probably one of the more regular switch users here. When I leave for work for 3 weeks and wont be home, switch gets flipped off. When I get home, I flip switch on. If I'm working on my computer, switch off. Other than that, switch stays on.

    Brennan Price got a reaction from Technous285 in What's with Linus' hate for Motion Blur?   
    I don't think the majority of people would turn it off if they didn't give it a shot. It's as simple as Why does my game look/feel so bad when I move my camera in game? Oh yeah because Motion Blur is on.
     
    All the same, even if Devs did put a bunch of time into something such as motion blur, it doesn't mean that it should be used or universally liked, that argument simply does not hold up very well. It is exactly the same as a car company putting lots of time and work into a new car, it doesn't mean that everyone is going to like the car does it?

    You can map your sharepoint URL directly in Explorer and it will mount as network storage. The only issue I see is permission & access handling. You might have to create a separate folder for each user then mount on a per user basis using a log on script.

    As much as it pains me to say this, There is a Network Admin section over at ArsTechnica, that will get you a field of people with far greater range of experience in this sort of thing, than you will find here. I'd suggest dropping by them for a visit for this question.

    Brennan Price got a reaction from bondoao1 in How important is which university you went to in getting an IT job?   
    I would look for experience over anything. Apprenticeships are probably the best way to go when it comes to IT work compared to uni. 

    It's the reason I did not go to uni, uni simply would not help me in my progression for my line of work I want to go into.
     
    As you might tell already, I took an apprenticeship and I am already a qualified IT technician at the age of 19.

    I reckon it should not just be the kid put into scrutiny here though, the parents should have had a slap on the wrists in some way shape or form too. Bear in mind he's still not 18 yet. 

    The fact that this kid had access to so much money and the parents did not put any restrictions on any of it makes me wonder what they were thinking as well

    Personally I would have the child charged with theft.
    That kid was both smart and stupid for doing such a thing, he ruined his parents financial future.
    A bit of time in jail and working to pay all that off is what a judge should do. (enough to teach the lesson as he is young)
