All modern switches are "self-adaptive"... probably any switch bought in the last decade. Basically, if you plug-in a straight or crossover Ethernet cable, the switch would figure out what the port on the other end is and select the correct configuration for communication.

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers
