    Ultra Low (idle) Power Home Server? Suggestions?

    Hey all. I'd like to put together a small home Linux server that will be on 24/7 and mostly serve light duty; lightweight web server, non-transcoding PLEX server, an Asterisk voip gateway for a couple of vintage phones, a few other things. And then a small-ish game server that complicates...

    New Build, How to Cool

    Hey all. I'm planning to put together a new build between now and Black Friday and am a bit stumped on choosing a good cooling solution this time around. I'm looking at an I7-5820k and one of the mid-range Asus X99 boards and 32Gb of ram. While I do game every so often (mostly 4x, a few FPSes)...

    6870 or 6950, c.2006 system

    So I'm driving myself nuts deciding whether to upgrade my video card or not, and to what. Done lots of reading on all the 6870/6950/6970 and GTX 460/560/570 lines, but my situation is that (a) my computer is a few years old and (b) this is likely the only upgrade I will be doing for the next...

    GTX 460 now or wait...HD6770?

    Hey all. Looking for some buying advice. I've been running a pair of Radeon X1900s for a few years now, and it's looking like it is time to upgrade. My interconnect cable (remember those?) has gotten finicky and prone to issues, and I'd definitely like more playability (and more/nicer AA/AF) in...

    Replacement LCD Panel Advice (Dell M1330)

    I have a Dell M1330 laptop with the thin LED panel. I went through the whole rigamarole of replacing the motherboard due to the defective nvidia GPU last year (or, more likely, a bad solder-job by Dell.) Anyway, I'm starting to get a line through the center of my screen again. I suspected the...

    Web Design Software ?

    Hey all. I'm getting ready to revamp my personal website (which has had a "Be back soon" on it since, oh, 2004) and thought it perhaps time that I get on the modern WYSIWIG bandwagon. Yeah, I'm one of those guys who's been doing html (and then CSS) in a text editor since about 1994. It gets old...

    Minimum Specs for Giga-ethernet?

    (Cross-referenced to my thread in Disk Storage.) I'm thinking about buying a couple of Giga Ethernet cards and a crossover cable to make a networked backup server...lots of data to move. The backup server has an AMD K6-2 300mhz cpu and about 256Mb of ram. Will it be able to handle the Giga...

    Keeping Data Safe

    Having had two drives fail on me in the past six months (NTFS corruption, not hardware failure...or so several utilities tell me), I'm looking for a good solution to keep my data safe. First, I'm going to buy a pair of 160Gb Hitachi SATA ($98x2) drives to replace my current main drives. I may...
