Look at which builds are generally well received as a place to start.
You also need a monitor.

The price ($2000) for the level of performance you're getting made me double take thinking this was CAD or something. I have the same level of performance in a ~$1100 build.
Also put in the actual prices and discounts you're getting. There is a gear button to change shit on parts. You also aren't making it clear how they're discounted and what can be optimized or not so it's especially difficult to help you.
plus overdoing clock speeds results in a negative improvement cuz of fragile imc
It's $2000 on my end. Here's what I would do with ~1.4k if you already have the power supply. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/7gqynH
The bare minimum far as capacity goes is 6TB x 6 in a raid Z2. Anything less is just tossing money down the drain; I'd be full in no time with my current data + client backups. After moving things over and leaving room for the backups I'd be left with 6.x TB free. Should do me fine for a few years. I don't hoard as much as I used to.

Gonna use a pair of 16GB usb sticks as the mirrored boot volume. Was gonna go with Raid Z3 for data but I've got several backups of it all as is one of which is on another freenas server in a raid Z2 config. So it'd be a waste of money and capacity. Now if this was my only server then I'd go with Z3. Far as performance goes the only thing this server will do is media streaming that will hit the cpu with any real impact. So the 2x Quad's @ 2.5 will be more than powerful enough for that. Freenas uses Plex so that's what I'll use as well. I use Serviio now which has never failed me but there's no port of it for Freenas which sucks.

Could ISPs in the United States legally do this sort of thing, block websites that are perfectly legal like 4chan/dailystormer for muh virtue signal up-cummy points? I know that net neutrality is dead but is it true that the new rules that replaced it still forbid ISPs from outright blocking perfectly legal websites?

Yes, this is what /pol/tards get for going against net neutrality, ironic that antifa will have to bailout /pol/ for the sake of freedom
Anyways, ISP's can't block tor though, see:
>in Brazil we have a free market
Hello retard. How the fuck is the market regulated by Anatel, needing government privilege to lay infrastructure (even in private property), needing permission to build an antennae, having to lease airwaves is in any way shape or form free? You're one retard motherfucker. The police also shut down content all the time. The only reason isp don't do this is because they don't want to piss of their customers more. Fortunately corporations here are not playing in the cultural war, we'll see for how long.
Yes they can, because you fucknuggets shilled about how bad net neutrality was.

So in the wake of the meme shooting, we /pol/acks have been discussing the possibility of us losing our beloved home and imageboard in the future.

While browsing one of those threads I came across this site, pic related. It's being crowdfunded.

My question for you is; would something like this be a viable option? How would it even work?
Keep in mind that a big crackdown on the nsfw boards would also eventually reach you aswell, as it would be an attack on not just evul nadzies, but eventually your bugs, exploits and general internet privacy aswell.

I doubt nvidia would license it now. It's worth much more compared to 10 years ago.
Eh, there are a few good reasons not to use an api controlled by your competitor.
It would be nice if more people knew about cycl but there you go.
AMD will never die

AMD was literally a nobody for an entire decade, yet their CPU division took 10 years to cough up Ryzen and spooked Intel

Intel will eventually fire back and stomp AMD back to irrelevance, Nvidia is smart and knows that they cannot cede an inch to AMD-Radeon

History just repeats itself and drones from either sides are too blind to realize it

Even if AMD gets shitstomped in the CPU and GPU section of the market they still make custom CPUs and GPUs for consoles

AMD could take it to court because of its ubiquity. Technologies that become commonplace and necessary for industries have to be licensable at a fair price. IIRC qualcomm got sued over their stuff before and sued again by Apple recently for similar reasons. It's regulated to stop anti-competitive behavior

>Code-named “Vision”, the phone was caught running Samsung’s Exynos 9610 chipset which would be a first for a Motorola device. Rumors point that the new device will, in fact, be the Motorola P40, the successor to last year’s P30.
