keep one that can run windows XP at the minimum, and keep the best of them.
I like ESX(i) more, but everyone got a different taste when it comes to hypervisors.
Btw.: I had a serious discussion with my company's domain admin. He really thinks Hyper-V can map USB drives natively.
That is one way to discard your stuff automatically, yes. But you loose the choice what to throw away. From the point of view of a man it is purely random what will be missing after next shifts end.
Maybe best is to think about what you will be able to with those components next year.
Right now hardware is expensive and they are buying it.
...retro rig? Ok, go linux. Its way cleaner, no background task nonsense.
Here is another take on this -
Have you seen how much is some very old stuff selling for now ?
Not just consoles and computers but cars , for example the original vw campervan !
The prices now are insane . I wish I have kept some of the stuff that I had as a kid it's worth fortune now and I have binned it back then haha .
I know I am probably not helping you here but it's just something to think about .
In LGR voice:
What's wrong with MS-DOS?
It's the definition of retro, baby!
I sell everything i don't use as soon as i upgrade... cuts the expenses of upgrading by like a 1/3.
MS-DOS FTW. I got Debian its clean, baby
Will digest the rest of that lot later on today (work calls), but I'm reckoning I'm probably better keeping the X99 MSI board over the AsRock one. I don't *need* 18 SATA ports, nor do I really need quad SLI/crossfire capability, though the dual M.2s would be nice. The MSI one has USB C, U.2 and SATA Express, which are both a bit newer, along with a lower power draw, and lower resale value.
You can always repurpose a computer as your server. Be it file server, media, backups or ads blocking.
Once you stepped into this realm, the possibilities are endless.
I had considered this, but I could also use the funds from selling everything to get an overpriced GPU
Well, you only live once.
Knock yourself out.
Would quad crossfire work with vega 64s?
How well would an Athlon XP handle WINE etc?
dont know. I got everything I need on Debian, I dont WINE. Theres tons of OS'ses for light use.
At least all my storage is now in one place...
Indeed. I need to get rid of 3 complete gaming rigs, a partial rig, a bunch of spare motherboards and our old VR headset (Rift +). For starters...
