But I agree I don't like Sun Servers normally it is just cheap enough to turn my head
The only okami i know is Ookami-san

No it is a old PC game with a wolf type thing I might have spelled it wrong

and also I know you had Full version of EXSI it was advise for the Thread starter lol

What kind of PSU do you have in this box anyway?
Depending on what's in there, a more efficient unit would probably give you a more noticeable gain (and pay for itself at a certain point in time).

To be honest I have no idea lol, probably a non 80+ PSU that got thrown in there I was considering getting a 80+ and lower wattage PSU, and I've also seemed to have gotten RDP to work, I cant wait to yank out that GPU and give it a go to see if It works without it.

I know 80+ PSUs are supposedly certified efficiency, so I assume an 80+ PSU would consume less power and be more efficient with energy, I have one in my current rig.

(Using RDP right now, thanks to those who suggested this)

Thanks I'll give this a look

RDP without gpu works *Happy dance*

Thanks guys yeah this 775 socket should do me just good for now, I'm gonna look into some things such as a new 80+ PSU, and NICs.
Update: Just checked, its a 450W PSU, also I don't believe its 80+

I can see every attempt on the system and block it for good! I was getting about 15 new users a day on my forums that were bogas and now none, I will never run OPEN-WRT or DD-WRT as a firewall again at least on a router not sure about there x86 versions. I have about 1000 plus movies hosted to the net at this time and not one person that should not see or have access to them does


Think I already brought it up but Proxmox-ve for a VM is a great choice they have really come up in the world and are surpassing VMware's free version by leaps and bounds

I'm considering running a VM at the moment, would running my game servers in a VM help protect the main machine which streams files to other machines? or is that unnecessary?

Sorry been a busy day, just got in front of the pc! I read your question a few times and maybe its me but not sure I get the question so please ask it another way!

most likely me just being old and blonde lol

It's a good idea ... though i don't know how to describe it but it would allow the game server to only use what it needs and the file server to have it's own hardware dedicated to it to prevent hardware over-usage and therefore lagging on either side
Unless if you do need more horsepower even if you only 2 VMs ... then get separate servers wink.gif

Yes thats the idea of WMs, I run no services outside of wms, but also dont necessarily have them spread endlessly across wms.

Ok that's alright, I'm thinking about getting a Gigabit NIC to speed up home network transfer speeds and possibly a Gigabit switch if required.

Could a Gigabit NIC for PFSense running in an a VM or something be a good idea, and another Gigabit NIC for Windows?
I think Windows would be the base OS, still deciding if I should go to WHS or Windows Server as I plan to stick with windows for my game hosting, and If I can run PFSense in a VM i will.

I definitely need faster network speeds from the home server as they are currently painfully slow and even simple things as video and music streaming can be slow, stop and skip.
Ran a Lan Speed Test and knew I needed to look into these NICs and Gigabit switches everyone's been talking about.

By getting a Gigabit switch and a Gigabit NIC for the home server am I on the correct route to improving network speeds?

I'm currently looking for an affordable Gigabit NIC to get the job done and with a reliable Wake on Lan function to awake the server when i need it for something.
I'm still looking but I thought I would post these links to see what people think about these

NIC 1
I can find that for £25, a bit steep considering I'm thinking about getting two NICs.

NIC2

Been looking at this switch also.

What should I be looking for in a NIC?

I think I'm gonna spend a lot of this week reading up on the tech before purchasing one so i have time to think.

I should rename this thread lol
