  1. Thanks for the information I will look into additional PCIE slots. I will have to look up what a RAMdisk is that is a new one for me.
  2. Ok so just an FYI about me. I know just enough about building PC's to get my self in trouble. When it comes to networking and stuff like that I know almost nothing and my biggest issues is picking motherboards and video cards. I have gutted a bedroom and am making it a home office and installing a network cabinet with a 48 port switch. I Will have 5 computers connected to it 4 tv's PS4's and so on everything will get internet that way im hoping. So my server will be my Plex server and storage for all the PC's. I have a old NZXT Phantom Case I will be putting it in. T
  3. My current PC is a i7-9700K @ 3.60Ghz 16.0 GB ram I am planning on purchasing a new video card either a Nvidia RTX3070 or a Radeon depending on specs and pricing. I want to run 3 screens I do gaming watching movies and everything else PC's are for. I would like something that has a really nice picture, bright I hate dim screens and a higher refresh rate so no motion blur. The 2 screens I was looking at are the AOC CQ27G2 27" Super Curved Frameless Gaming Monitor QHD 2K, 1500R Curved VA, 1ms, 144Hz, FreeSync, Height adjustable, https://www.newegg.c
  4. I have a case with a mother board ram cpu. I need to get hard drives either way i go so they are a wash so i need a SSD, Power supply. I was concerned that the CPU i have wouldn't hold up for multiple users. I have 3 kids with tablets 2 Play Stations and multiple PCs and Tvs with Plex so many opportunities for use. Right now they don't use it much but in the future I feel it would get used quite a bit? I know i can run it on that PC i have just don't want to set it up then have to redo it over in the near future. Also i think there was an issue with the MB i had i was going to send it out
  5. I have a old PC that I can use to make a Plex server but need to buy some parts. So I was thinking of buying an old server instead. I am looking for opinions and i am also looking for pros and cons of both. (link below of a potential server i was looking at). https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-PowerEdge-R620-Server-2-00GHz-16-Cores-32GB-RAM-4-Trays-/192757366586?hash=item2ce13bff3a The pc i have is a I7 2600k with 16BG of ram. thanks again for every ones help
  6. I found these 2 cards I know they are over 300 but i did a quick search and that under 300 dream died kinda quick. I don't see why one is about 50 bucks more then the other one? I dont see much of a difference in them. $322 - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=27N-0023-000U3 $369 - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=27N-0023-000U2
  7. I do have a budget i wish money was no object. I went with HD Radeon 6900 because I wanted to be able to run Different things on up to 3 screens and a TV with no issue and I would like it to be a good picture while doing it. I don,t need anything capable of 4K. I don't plan on overclocking but i would like to have the option encase the future would require me to. Those cards are more then i can spend I would say if i can stay under 300 for a video card that would be good. For the most part i am happy with the card i have. Occasionally one screen would not turn on so i would shut down PC
  8. I do some gaming store lots of movies music and family photos. I use my PC to watch most of all my TV i watch. I use Skype while gaming and will also have the TV playing. I know it is overkill for what i need but i would rather have more then not enough and would rather have a PC last me a long time and not have to keep upgrading. Might make it a home server at some point but not sure yet.
  9. Hello and thank you all for your suggestions in advance. I am going to build a new PC and use some of the old parts temporarily. I want to be able to hook up 2 to 3 screens and a TV. I also want to set up 4 hard drives in a Raid 0+1 Case = Thermaltake Tower 900 (cause it looks awesome) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N1GP2GZ/?coliid=I21MELUK357WLB&colid=4RP6YS18VISN&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it CPU = i7-9700K https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HHN6KBZ/?coliid=I1V2N6TMOA0LZM&colid=2BRI7I7EF4HBC&psc=0&ref_=lv
  10. Not exactly no other issues. For a while i was getting a glitter effect when watching videos. Also the glitter effect was only in the video the rest of the screen was normal. The window that pops up is not during booting it is while the pc is on and i am using it and random from what i can tell. I believe i did clean and add new thermal paste on the CPU. On the video card i only removed the cover didn't take anything else apart. I will try removing the battery and see if the auto overclock starts working.
  11. Ok my system is a I7 2600K @3.4GHz 16Gb of ram 64bit Windows 10 sandisk 480GB SSD for operating system Video card is AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series (I have 2 Screens and a TV hooked to it now) Mother board MSI P67A - GD80 (Has a button to automatically overclock) So i installed a game eve and when i went to play i heard a Fan go into super speed and sounded like it was going to explode. So i opened up the PC and the dust was out of control. So i took off the stock fan that came with the CPU and the video card. Took the case off the video card full of dust cle
