  • What parts do i need to assemble a NAS computer?

    I've looked into it a little but im kind of lost as to what i need, Im not looking for any already assembled stuff. Its DIY project

    Do i need a GPU?

    What ITX MOBO would be good?

    Any decent NAS chassi i should look into?

    How many Storage drives do i need?

    I have a Intel xeon CPU lying around, is there any good MOBO for NAS that would support it?

    This is the CPU i have: ark.intel.com/sv/products/92993/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-2603-v4-15M-Cache-1_70-GHz

    If you need any more INFO just ask and i will update this post.

    Dont worry about the budget, This is a school project and they want a NAS for storing and streaming content.

    Thank you in advanced.

    NOoow, I dont know what is a "good" budget for these kidns of upgrades so i dont know what my budget is, I know its hard to find components when you dont know what someone is willing to spend so sorry about that.

    Thanks in advanced, No need to rush.

  • Need a recommendation for a computer case with good cooling.?

    All the parts in my rig are fairly new, but the chassi is 5 or so years old. and pretty small. All these big parts are so close together and the case feels like a frying pan even when im not gaming. that can t be good. So i need a case with great cooling. It can t be too tall but it can t be ITX, Has to be able to take a full size MOBO.

  • Would installing a game on another hard drive help legging?

    I play smite and sometimes it lags/freezes and i can t do anything during that time

    I heard that defraging the hard drive could help, But i have a 80gb hard drive lying around so i could use it for just that one game and maybe that would make it not lag?

  • Any wattage problems with my computer?

    I am upgrading the GPU to a Sapphire Radeon R9 290X 4GB but i am unsure if i have a good enought PSU for it

    My specs (including upgrade)

    CPU: Intel core i5 2400 3.10GHz

    MOBO: MSI P67A-GD65 (B3)

    RAM: 2 sticks of 4gb 'Dragon Ram'

  • Should i get a GPU with 4gb gddr5?

    I was thinking of getting msi gtx 960 but it is only 2gb and a friend of mine said games in the future will recommend 4gb.

    So i then took a look at the Radeon TRI-X R9 290 OC which is about the same price and has 4gb.

    So should i go with the Grafikkort Radeon TRI-X R9 290 OC

    or

    MSI gtx 960 2gb?

  • Can i get back uninstalled files and programs?

    So if i get it right the storage device doesn't really remove the files but only leave the space they took up free for some other file or program which would maybe make you able to get back lost files but i dont know how to begin to get back the files,
