    Thanks to AMD not continuing with drivers for their legacy graphics cards (ES1000), I am stuck with the Basic Display Driver within Windows Server 2012 which is doing my head in having to look at a bland & stretched image on the monitor attached to it!!!

    Looking for LEGITIMATE (not a KMS cracked or similar) product keys that I do not have to worry about being deactivated or needing re-arming after every security update.

    I have been thinking about adding an Intel Optane module of either 16GB or 32GB into the new system, but I don't know if I will see much benefit from doing so. All but the storage drives are SATA6Gbs SSD or vNAND m.2 varients and are fairly rapid compared to the older system that only had...
