    2010 21” iMac question

    It locks up the machine most of the time as well. It may run for hours then start this screwed up screen then it will lock up. It will do it pretty quick if playing a dvd or a YouTube video full screen.

I also am not a gamer and I mainly got the system for the case in which I got a total steal since if it hadn’t worked at all I would have still bought it. I...

    Just picked up a mac pro 8 core for cheap!

    I never expected to be able to run the newest OS but it seems very fast running El capitan and I really think I'll keep it until it breaks at which point I may just mod it for a hackintosh. After all it was only $25 for it and the case sells for $100 on ebay all the time.

    why do people state whether video card were used for mining?

    Wow I didn't think my question would spark a debate. But all of this is good information anyway. I kind of figured it was on the thought that mining overstressed the cards even if that wasn't really the case. I personally don't game but I'm thinking of buying a used card and was only wondering...

    Laptop HDD Desktop use???

    Why not use SSD's instead? they are cool all the time and lower power and if capacity is the concern go with a ssd boot drive and a spinner for size. That's the way I roll.

    I picked up a poweredge 1950 and a 2950 locally for cheap I know some here are thinking way too old but I feel they were cheap enough to decide if it would be worth shelling out more money I find them a little loud but I'm not extremely picky. I have found startup it a bear but once running they...
