  1. Hello I am planning to get a new Proxmox server Setup my budget is around £600-700 I have 3/4 Vms with active work load( SQL,Firewall,Load balancer) Below is the config i have chosen happy to get some input and can consider Intel too :) https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/ZR4WQD Thank you
  2. which model on SSDs and HDDs would you recommend ? i am little new to Storage domain
  3. Perfect! Poxmox is installed on a single MSata 120GB drive ideal & budget setup for storage as I have less personal Data and more of these VMs storage/backup tasks on my hand to keep. So two SSD's and a Synology Backup it is as per your opinion?
  4. Thank you. with option one shall I just use them as LVM or make a ZFS Mirrored pol ? I understand Proxmox can act as a network share, but coming from Synology i think i might need more NAS features and Do you know if Proxmox support DLNA ? considering SSDs will wear fast I am planning to run Syslog and other active writing on a non mission critical disk, Most of my VM are cybersecurity/Network security related which I can take backup of configuration and restore which I can restore in the event of a failure. Fast storage will be mostly for Windows ,Ubuntu or Tes

  6. placed a pre order for MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard 3rd of June it is
  7. Chaps,What alternative you would recommend if MSI MAG x570 doesn’t launch anytime soon.
  8. is this looks alright to everyone ? obviously subject to MSI mobo availability. but I will get all the other parts and have a spare machine#(Lenovo C30) where I will use GPU for time being Also 3600x and RAM was purchased a week ago. I have changed GPU solely due to availability once confirmed I will make my move for rest of the parts.

  9. ha ha I was only messing bud .. no worries its tough to build a PC in covid-19 most of the parts are not in stock
  10. ok so looks like I will wait for MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK to be released here in the UK. I already purchased RAM and 3600X( as it was nly £2 0more on sale a few days ago) just need to wait on GPU lol
  11. Thank you So you reckon Asus TUF is a good one to handle 12 cores easily in future ? if I plan on to swap out with Ryen 9 3950X or something ? or any Ryzen 4xxx ? Thanks for your advice on cooler... will this support radiators and water cooling if needed in future ? I was initially inclined towards X570-E but there is a lot of talking about 16 phase PWM which I am clueless about hence my ask here
  12. Hello looking for some suggestion here. I have selected below specs for my first gaming PC. Ideally looking to be future proof so I can use Ryzen 4000 series PCU when released and a bit of overclocking if possible/needed.

  13. Ok Quick update.( sorry for changing things a bit too much) I have changed power supply and motherboard and looking for a case recommendation now for smallest footprint in ATX I ditched mini-ITX formfactor for scalability AMD 4000 series is around the corner i would like to use my hardware longer if I can. new specs below... is everything OK? Only reason I picked up Asus over Gigabyte is another 2.5G ethernet and similar price in comparison to Gigabyte X570 AORUS ULTRA .( a bit of Asus fanboy as well) Also now I have a bit of bigger footprint for case should do
