    Cheap Hyper-V backup solution to USB on host?

    Veeam Agest will not backup VMs. It's only for single OS. But there is Veeam Backup Free. It can backup to the USB but to automate backup of the VM you have to use Powershell.

    Go-To SSD These Days

    I went with SM951 - it's oem version of 950 pro. Speed is great - around 2300-2500 read and 1500 write. And it was much cheaper than 950PRO

    Simplest Administration, Inexpensive UTM With Content Filtering (including HTTPS)

    Meraki is great if you can afford yearly service payment. You can't avid it - without Meraki will not work. And it's not that cheap unfortunately.. I personally use Untangle but for HTTPS you'd have to have paid version.

    B350 multi GPU

    Most of the time that secod pcie x16 is really x4 electrically so there is really no point of using that. If you want to use 2 gpus or other pcie demanding cards you should have x370. Second PCIe x16 is in x8 electrical mode.

    BIOS updates for AM4 motherboards

    I've updated bios to 3.40 on Asrock x370 Killer SLI and Ram works at 3066 without any problem (i have G.Skill RipjawsV 3000 CL15 ) stable. No problem with flash. Before that i wasn't even able to get 2400Mhz on memory on original bios. Other than that i have no issues.

    AM3 to AM4

    Generally it will work. But for that change especially if OS is old you should reinstall windows anyway. Even if it will work it can b unoptimized and there can be problems with performance. Also AMD itself recommend toreinstall windows when you move to Ryzen.

    Xeon E3-1225 vs i7-3770K

    27inch 4k? Too much for the screen size?

    In My opinion it's definitely too much. I have 40" 4k tv and sometimes icons and letters are too small. QHD resolution would be best for 27"

    Meraki MX64 or Sophos UTM9 or Pfsense

    For Meraki to work you need always to have active subscription. If you decide no to pay - all your meraki devices will become useless. So..The technology is generally nice but if you want to have set it and forget it setup - it's not for you. You could use Sophos UTM 9 Home - free version...

    What OS do you use ? Server 2012 R2 and Server 2016 does have ability to create LACP and other types of link aggregation in the OS itself. Server Manager -> Local Server -> NIC Teaming

    New server E5-2670 Virtualization or not

    I think that you'll gain in memory usage with Server 2016. Especially because of Dynamic Memory. I have 5 VMs now with 28GB ram and i5 2400 so your EAnd i also use Plex. For home you don't need to worry about utilization of raid :) Raid6 will work fine for that.

    Just settle for the 1060 or spend 120$ more and get the 1070, but it's for 1080p?

    I recently got Asus 1060 Dual 6GB and i'm really happy with it. I had before R9 280X and for me with slight quality tweaking it works very well in 4K. I've connected it to 4k samsung TV. Of course i don't use AA in 4K
