    CPU for 1440p Gaming/Streaming

    Get an NVIDIA GPU and let the GPU do the work along with gaming. If you really want to stream at the best quality, you are looking at a 2nd system with a capture card. On my 3900XT when i was running OSB and using CPU for it , as ifI used my RX 6800 i got lower FPS, considerably, it was using...

    Why is that some VPN is several times the monthly fee vs. others?

    PIA is pretty much rated the worst VPN provider around, mainly because they were bought by a advertising firm that has done some shady things in the past, you can bet all of your data is being sold to who ever wants it. NordVPN I think is still king.

    Diablo II Resurrected: Offical Thread

    If they were smart and had burstable infra, would not be an issues, but likely more a software code base issue also. The problem is crappy launches last 2-3 days, then bugs, and maybe a week or 2 later people can actually play. So instead of pissing off players who may never come back, do it...

    Court issues permanent injunction in Epic v. Apple case

    I mean, on one side Apple and Google had a monopoly on the market....So i could understand why this was judged how it was. But at the same time, it is Apple and Google OS / Store and devices (Google = Samsung / LG and everyone else) So if you do not want to use our store, too bad. But, then on...

    good VLAN switch for business?

    HPE ProCurve is all I used back in the days, dam reliable. HPE bought Aruba some time ago and merged their line in with HPs. I do recall that the OS may still be different between the ProCurve vs Aruba switches but if it is all new to you anyways may not matter. HPE Procurve switches are not...

    3060 Ti lhr very inconsistent mining with Nicehash.

    The rates vary, nothing is 100% consistent, You are selling mining power via nicehash, it is about demand and how many other people are selling at the same time. I can go from making $4 one second to it spiking upto $10 for a second and back down. If you want consitent 100% same rates, do not...

    PC gaming monitors that have hardware calibration? 32" or 27"

    Hardware Cal. are likley to come in higher end design monitors, not "gaming" monitors. Gaming monitors are high Mhz and low response time usually sacrificing colour quality.

    good VLAN switch for business?

    Router support VLANS I presume... for that you would use ACL with in the router or pending on the switch, the switch. Block each VLAN from seeing each other as a rule, I would make a 3rd vlan for the MFP - you then allow your 2 company vlans access to ONLY the MFP VLAN/IP (lock down the rule...

    Best NVMe SSD for VMWare workstation?

    @_Gea This is for VMWare workstation to run 4 VM's.....i presume this is not a business case use for any critical production workloads, so the DC variants and the price are total overkill for the users needs. If the OP is using VMware workstation for any production workloads, they should quit...

    Properly, it should, but since [H] doesn't fall under any real privacy data laws, they do not need to, but deleting accounts is just nice to do sometimes versus leaving open old accounts, which say later gets comprised and now someone is posting as you... Best thing would be to change the...

    Can you stop EVGA cards from shutting the fans off at idle?

    If it is that bad I would start an RMA process or at least contact their support, if something is wrong it is only going to get worse with time if the fans are out of balance or something.

    Cat6 over Cat5e for a New Home?

    Make sure you can get Cat6a , this has the higher frequency of 500 which allows 10Gb (officially supported) slavie what equipment costs so much more for Cat 5 vs 6? the cost of cabling is really a non issue and anything past that they all use the same equipment when it comes to switches and such.

    I am curious, how will Google and Apple make money now, do they still take a commission some how? Or just charge developers a flat fee or something to make their money off the stores?

    Apple blinks

    If you got hacked solely from visiting a website then you choose to install something from that website or allowed something to be run from that website which gave someone access to your system, something you should not have.

    Best NVMe SSD for VMWare workstation?

    an NVMe, depending which, do come with cache which does help with performance. You would be looking at something like the Samsung Pro series of WD Black models, all of the cheaper sub $200 1TB NVMe do not have cache and you can see in benchmarks when their performance tanks. You will also want...

    Mixed physical servers in cluster?

    You can do different gen CPUs you just choose the level you can migrate between. AMD to Intel, you need to shut down a VM entirely before you migrate between them. You can do 2 node clusters but you need to then create a Witness node for them also that is not hosted on the same hardware. VMware...

    It doesn't seem to last, seems to be just a hiccup that last a few minutes, or sometimes even quicker for me. If it happens again to me, is there any other info I can try to grab for you? Narrow it down to see if it is a me issue / ISP / location vs CDN issue?

    PfSense block Internet access by MAC Address

    Ya, pfsense does let you do mac address blocking in the GUI, FreeBSD can do MAC address filtering but it is only in the wireless stack as you noted. (maybe one day) so it is just assigning a static IP in the DHCP server and block the IP.

    PfSense block Internet access by MAC Address

    Your HTPC will have 2 MAC addresses, one for the lan and one for Wifi, you could just block both in pfsense.
