  1. I mean you could probably run Black ops at 30 fps, 720p, and low settings with that hardware
  2. Have you messed with your BIOS settings at all? Anything to do with you RAM or CPU settings? If you have, you could also try resetting your BIOS back to factory settings just to see if that may fix something that was set off balance. Though a noob question, is all of the hardware seated properly?
  3. What is the monitor model? Brand, etc.? Edit: I know seemingly simple, have you tried just unplugging it and plugging it back in to see if it would stop? I feel like I've had monitors kinda act clunky but then after just unplugging them they go back to normal in some cases.
  4. There is probably a setting you can change on the monitor itself.
  5. You might need a larger PSU(wattage wise) for a little breathing your for your GPU and CPU, you'd probably be running the PSU at max load a lot while playing games. Edit: If you're tight on cash(I doubt it because of the 3080), you could swap your case for a cheaper one, to better spend money on the parts and components themselves. Also 3080's are hella difficult to come by. I only got a 3080 ti because I was lucky to get selected for the Newegg raffle haha.
  6. That UI interface actually looks super sleek. The Intel Celeron that I ordered is a dual-core with 4 threads, but being that mine will be using DDR4, it'll probably compare to that build ngl. Assuming I can configure it properly. I'm assuming that there are guides on using Unraid, I'm not familiar with that though. Is that image the main face of the software/OS? Or is that just a window you can open?
  7. I see on the VM part now, I can see how that would make things way easier. I was definitely mixing up bytes and bits but alright!
  8. As far as servers that will be hosted. Most likely just a few minecraft servers for my friends and I. I say a few because of vanilla and modded. So nothing too out of this world. I haven't experienced any issues with needing IP protection, I was just curious if it is a precaution I should take just to be on top of things in general. I can look into running a hypervisor like proxmox while running a VM. Would running a VM be necessary if it is at such a small scale? Or is just for the separation between PC resources and vulnerability? And fair enough on wattag
  9. Recently I decided to build a budget PC to host a server at home for games I have been playing, as I usually end up paying a host to host a server for my friends and I. I went with lower end parts but stayed in the more consumer market as I'm not trying to dilly dally with an actual server rack. SO, here is my plan. I went with current generation parts for Intel, an example being a ASRock B560M micro ATX moba that has an LGA 1200 socket for instance. I paired it will an Intel Celeron CPU that is clocked @ 3.5GHz, 8GB of Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 RAM(running in dual chan
  10. With the G15 you are probably gonna lose out on performance unless you manually turn it to 1080p, it has a 1440p display which maybe sounds good but with a 3060 it isn't very realistic Edit: Even with my i9-10900k, 3080 ti, and 128gb of 3200mhz ram I have trouble playing on the highest settings a game can offer at 1440p with consistently good frames
  11. GPU's are basically rare art pieces now ngl, being the whole market is wack XD
  12. If you have a soldering iron, you could try gettng some desoldering wick to suck up all the loose metal. If so, I would go into it thinking that the GPU is already lost. Buy a cheap $30 soldering iron and see what happens. But whatever caused that initially if not fixed will likely just happen again even if you replace that broken part.
  13. Does the GPU need secondary power outside of being in a PCI slot? Make sure those connectors are plugged in properly if so, on both the GPU side and the PSU side(if your PSU is modular). Does the PC have integrated graphics? That would be a simple way of checking if it is a GPU problem or a OS problem. Remove the GPU and try to boot off of the display connection port directly on the motherboard. If you know already that it isn't the GPU, you may need to do a windows reinstall. If you need to recover any files, you can make bootable linux drive just to save some files yo
  14. The Corn brand has been around for awhile now, I think they got popular on the Wish app first and other apps housed outside of the U.S. like banggood and alibaba. They kinda just seem like a low quality version of part but that's not to say they don't actually work out
