  • Samsung 31.5-inch UH850 UHD Monitor picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    The 3840x2160 (UHD) screen resolution of this monitor has 4x the pixels of a Full HD 1920x1080 resolution monitor, which provides a lot of work-space, allowing several programs windows to run side by side without overlapping. I have no hesitation recommending this monitor, it is impressive!

    This monitor does not come with built-in speakers, so if you would like speakers, please be sure to get those separately.

    This monitor has the following inputs:
    (1) DisplayPort (DP) 1.2 - supports 3840x2160 @ 60Hz
    (1) Mini DisplayPort (Mini DP) 1.2 - supports 3840x2160 @ 60Hz
    (1) HDMI input 1 - supports 3840 x 2160 @ 30Hz
    (1) HDMI input 2 - supports 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz - So if you are going to use HDMI, plug into HDMI port 2.

    This monitor comes with:
    (1) Displayport to Mini Displayport adapter
    (1) Displayport cable
    (1) HDMI 2.0 cable
    (1) USB 3.0 Type B cable

    Here is an article of monitor specs to be aware of that provides information that may be helpful in your monitor search.
  • iStarUSA E2M8 2U Storage Rackmount Case picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    This is a nice 2U case for cooling your system and adding up to 9 hard drives while not taking up much space in your rack. Just note that any card that you add to a system using this case will need to be "low-profile" to ensure it will fit properly.

  • Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SATA3 2.5inch SSD picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    This is Samsung's "mainstream" class of SSD, and comes with a 5-Year Limited Manufacturer's Warranty from Samsung.
  • PNY Quadro P4000 PCI-E 8GB picture

  • Fractal Design Define R5 White w/ Window picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    This is a very nice case. It offers good cooling, several internal hard drive bays, along with built-in sound dampening material. This case is a couple inches shorter than most full towers, so if you are height restricted for your system, this may be a better option to consider. If you don't need or care for the side-panel window, consider the non-windowed Fractal Design Define R5 version, which will provide more sound dampening, and is the default case type in our Puget Serenity Professional.

    *This case gets plenty of cooling when the front door is closed. There are vents to left and right of the door designed to allow enough air in with the front door closed, and that air still gets filtered to stop the majority of dust from getting inside the system.

    This case does a great job cooling your components, and dampening the noise of your system with its built-in noise dampening material.
  • IStarUSA 1000W Mini Redundant 3U Power Supply picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    If you need a redundant power supply in a 4U rackmount chassis, this is a nice choice. However this device will not protect you against a power failure. For that, you may want to consider an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) Battery Backup. UPS devices will provide your system power in the event of a power outage to allow you to save your work, and properly shut your system down.
