    2 gamers, 1 box?

    Unraid has lots of documentation and support. From their own site, docs, youtubers, forums, and Reddit. If it looked more daunting than KVM & other hypervisors then you’re trying to run a marathon without training. Running a powerful machine that can support two virtual machines plus some...

    Fallout: New California mod alllllmost ready

    I never need a reason to replay Fallout New Vegas, and I love mods. Win Win I can't wait, and I should probably toss them some beer money.

    Please, help me locate a part

    Thanks for the help! Now I get to have fun replacing GPU capacitors for the first time. Figured that with the help from this group I could source what I need and have it delivered before I arrive home.

    Please, help me locate a part

    Well that is what I am a tiny bit unsure about. The graphics card will boot into windows when used with a hypervisor. Or when used as the second GPU on a machine running Windows natively. However, if it changes out of its lowest power state then either machine will blue screen and crash, or...
