  1. holy shit no wonder you prefer consoles this PC is not gonna allow you to play anything and doesnt have any muscles to flex. first of all the budget is a little tight as there are not so many components that you can reuse from your old system. Especially if you care about the looks and weight of the PC as the main thing making it heavy is that GIANT case you got there for no good reason as the components could have fit into a small micro ATX build. I would recommend that you reuse the case, the SSD and the HDD and if you could look on the powersupply what exactly w
  2. Well by that logic LTT doesnt count as well because its a company and not a single person.
  3. these programs typically try to copy the entire partition information so even if your current usage on your OS drive is below the capacity of your new drive it will not work if the partition is bigger than your new drive. generally i would strongly recommend to simply reinstall windows on the SSD as this will also trigger that windows automatically makes a bunch of settings automatically that will help with the SSD´s performance and lifetime.
  4. which benchmarks are you looking at here? also looking for 4 core benchmarks to compare against doesnt really make sense, after all the M1 has 8 cores even if 4 of them are more optimized for power efficiency it can still use all 8 at the same time.
  5. if the recording is fine it means the frames are correctly rendered by the GPU so the issue must be either the port on the GPU, the cable or the monitor
  6. Watch the LMG video its just an HDMI dongle that you attach to your TV so no need to return the TV.
  7. as far as i know windows does not use DLNA for this streaming. But either way the best thing you can get for this right now is the new google TV, theres a new LTT video out since a few days where they tested it.
  8. just ordered my parts for the build and an extra HDD both to expand the storage and so i have an empty drive to move my data to. PCPartPicker Part List CPU: Intel Core i3-10100 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Processor (€107.90 @ Amazon Deutschland) Motherboard: Gigabyte H470M DS3H Micro ATX LGA1200 Motherboard (€99.54 @ Computeruniverse) Memory: Kingston 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 CL13 Memory (€66.90 @ Alternate) Case: Silverstone CS381B MicroATX Desktop Case (€291.00) Power Supply: Silverstone SFX 450 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular SFX Power Supply (€79.90 @ Alternate
  9. well that means i could go for higher capacity drives but since i already got some 8TB ones i will probably continue adding more of these as i will have enough bays for this anyways. i put together two systems now, i used the node 804 for both but im probably going to go with the Silverstone 381 because it fits better into the space i have for this NAS. The intel version is slightly cheaper but i opted for the 10400 here so i have two more cores available for VM´s and i also switched to a different motherboard with an h470 chipset for no other reason that this one is only like 8€ mor
  10. seems like its not a bad idea to take a look at team blue here as while their iGPU´s suck most of the time the CPU side is more powerful and as long as i have enough m.2 slots on the board already there wont be any PCI-E lane issue. Lets say i scale it down a bit to maximum of 6 SATA ports which would mean i could probably even get an m-ITX motherboard that has all the ports. Which case would you recommend? Still the best one i found by far is the silverstone 381 but its m-ATX and has 8 drive bays so it would be kind of a waste to not even be able to use them at all.
  11. i just checked, the 2nd m.2 slot is only 2x and is disabled when you use SATA ports 3 and 4 also this m.2 only supports SATA and not NVME. This is a limitation of the chipset as its only connected to the CPU with 4x PCI-e 3.0 adding another m.2 slot that supports the full bandwidth would fully saturate this connection. What i dont fully understand is what exactly is wrong with the x570 motherboard that i found, beside that its about 100 bucks more than all the cheap options that would require add in cards and the fan on the chipset it seems fine to me or is there something wro
  12. yes but thats the exact problem. If you check what most m-ATX motherboards come with you will find the vast majority comes with two slots that are physically 16x and share these lanes and one slot that is 1x. sometimes the 2nd 16x slot is only 4x instead and they use thew extra lanes for an M.2 slot. If you look it up and go through some motherboards to find one like this you will quickly find that there is yet again only a single motherboard on the market that has this in the m-ATX formfactor the ASRock X470D4U and guess what it already comes with, yea you guessed it 8 SATA por
  13. the problem is the physical size and that most cards dont come with Gen3 PCI-E if i get a cheap board and i would add all my requirements via expansion cards i would need 3 slots that are mechanically 4x or i would need to get much more expensive gen3 or gen4 cards (gen 4 doesnt even seem to exist yet for this stuff) which would then work as 1x or 2x cards. i would need a 4x slot for the 10G NIC because the vast majority of them come with PCI-E 2.0 another 4x slot for a sata expansion card again because they come as PCI-E 2.0 or 3.0 at most and then i would need another 4x or
  14. nah i am looking for advice, the thing is half the posts here were solutions that wouldnt work due to PCI-E lane limitation or would at the very least bottleneck due to bandwidth limitations. The only advice im considering here right now is the one of going for less SATA ports and adding an add in card if i need more but for that i would still need a motherboard with enough PCI-E lanes and slots which brings me back to m-ATX and leads to the exact same board again. Edit: also going for less SATA ports only really makes sense for me if that would also mean i can get a much smal
