  1. I have two graphics cards. One is a gtx 1050 ti and the other is an rx 570. They both have 4gb of vram. Is there anyway that I can combine both of them so I can use that 8gb for ai model training? If this is at all possible, but needs the same brand for the card, I also have a gtx 750 ti which also have 4gb of vram.
  2. I am storing mostly pictures and videos, both compressed, but still regular files (not zips or anything special). The server will run Ubuntu 20.04. I'm not experienced with running zfs, so I would have to look into that.
  3. Have a second server, compress all of the files, and send it to that server that has less storage on it. Rethinking it, the raid 5 array with all four drives doesn't seem like a bad idea. There is a 5 year warranty plus 2 million hours MTBF. High availability sounds like a great idea which I will have to at some point implement it.
  4. I'll probably hook it up and use zstd to make backups of important things. Offsite backup is a really good idea which I'll have to get into, but meanwhile something like backing up to tape might work okay.
  5. I have 4x6tb WD data center drives (and 1x4tb if that's important) and I was originally planning to make an array of three 6tb hard drives and then keep one in the server as a hot spare, but reading around some people say that hot spare isn't a great idea. I'm looking for good reliability while still having a good amount of storage. I am onsite 95% of the time. Should I use all four 6tb drives or should I use three and have one spare, but do I keep that spare hot or cold? Is there anything useful I can do with my 4tb drive for this single array? This array will be raid 5 and be on a Dell r720
  6. I have tried to set my computer to sleep, but every time that I did it failed. Here are the steps that I have taken for my computer to go into recovery mode: Sleep button pressed in Windows Computer Turns off (I Press the power button) Computer turns on (Nothing shows up) Computer audibly restarts Computer posts but shows "Your pc/device needs to be repaired" with an error code of "0x000000e" After 30 seconds or so on that screen, computer shuts off on it's own. (I press the power button) Computer boots into Windows (not from sleep). I am usin
  7. I'm hooking it up to a device that doesn't have any sata ports. I'm turning on the power supply without a computer.
  8. I have a 3.5" hard drive and I want to plug it into a USB port. I can use a sata power connector from my power supply to power the drive. I already have an adapter for this, but it has a SATA connector and unless I sacrifice it I don't think it'll work. Are there any cheap Sata iii to USB 3.1 adapters without the sata power or any other similar alternatives?
  9. Yes I am sure. I found a $347 dell optiplex with a 500 gb ssd. My grandparents don't watch movies on their computers (or videos or music). They will most likley not be able to use the full 500gb with a couple hundred pictures.
  10. They gave it to a repair shop, the repair shop gave them their data and kept the computer.
  11. One of my grandparents wants a new computer and they will not let me build them one so I need to pick out a prebuilt for them. Of course because they are old they found a super overpriced HP Pavilion and I told them not to buy it because they are literally getting scammed. Preferably it would have an SSD because hdd are SLOW! Are there any good prebuilts that will handle web browsing for under $600 (yes, super overkill)? And by good I mean a good bang for the buck. Backstory: Grandparents bought a $1200 HP Pavillion about 6 months ago, then something died in it (most likley the hdd
  12. I have removed the battery from the phone and put it into a sealed glass jar. This thread is considered solved.
  13. Okay I have safely seperated the two wires and taped them in electrical tape.
  14. I have tried taking apart my old phone (moto z2 play) and when disconnecting the battery terminals i disconnected the wires from the connector. I now have two exposed wires that are extremely close to one another and are extremely close to touching. How can I safely fix this without blowing up my battery?
