Office 2013

Ill just leave these here for now... All ill say is a making a "touch screen interface" and leaving the tiny buttons on the ribbon that are not very touch screen friendly is just brilliance. Between this and the Server 2012 interface I am now fairly certain Microsoft is just trolling everyone to see...

Re: Planetside 2

Just be aware that the graphics in PS2 arent as "realistic" as something like BF3 or the more recent CoD's. Do realize that you will get into fights where 300+ (lots of times way more) people are all fighting over a single base which really beats on lesser machines (though the game is mostly CPU bou...

Re: Is Remote Desktop in XP hard to configure?

Teamviewer is excellent, we use it at work heavily. The only catch with it is the free version will detect you as being a business if you have more than x devices on a network. Not entirely sure what x is, but that seems to be how they detect home use vs business use which isnt free.

Re: Quadro 4000 and 2 monitors at 2650x1600 ?

In theory it should work when running off display port. The reality is going to be more annoying. I run dual 30's (cinema displays) and had issues trying to get them on a single card last I tried. I ended up saving myself the headache and ended up just running dual cards. The thing to remember is th...

Re: Various Windows 8 versions

The OEM licensing verification isnt perfect, and windows activation will activate a single key multiple times without issue. It is anyone's guess how microsoft determines it, I only know how it should work legally. For building your own system though, I am not positive what component is technically ...

Re: Various Windows 8 versions

OEM versions have licenses tied to the machine they were purchased for. The license is not transferable to another machine. You are supposed to place the key code sticker on the machine to make the license valid (though i dont think anyone really does this). In the past you have been able to purchas...

Can you mix powerline modules from different manufacturers on the same network? Yes you can even though the performance might not be optimal. Not always. You can in some instances. It is supposed to work, but in reality it is fairly hit or miss from what I have seen. As long as you keep it to the s...

Re: Intel Xeon E5-2680 and GIGABYTE X79S-UP5 Server Level Re

Decent review, but one thing that really annoys me: XEON DOES NOT MEAN SERVER. I read "Server Level Review" in the title and assumed something completely different. This is nothing more then a desktop using a Xeon cpu (which unless you actually are running more than 1 cpu in a workstation isnt the b...

Re: Use Two Separate Wireless Routers?

Unless you are massively re-configuring your old router to work only as an access point (no DHCP, no NAT, etc), do yourself a favor and dont use it if you get a new N router. Troubleshooting issues that are caused by double NAT is a nightmare. If you really want to use the G router you can flash the...

Not really enough info, do any exe files actually run? Try pulling up a command prompt and see if you can start something.

Re: Windows Server Tablet (2012)

Yeah, the UI is absolutely horrific for a server. The high availability DHCP server though is quite simple to set up which is pretty big for a lot of companies that I work for. Not having to deal with MSCS or split scopes is really useful.

Why not get a board more suited to your other needs and get a proper RAID controller? Onboard RAID is not what you are looking for, dont try to force it to be something it isnt.
