  • Corsair Hydro Series H60 CPU Cooler (Rev. 3) picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    This is a very nice self-contained, fully-sealed liquid cooled CPU cooler. These have been very reliable, and is the go-to choice when you plan to overclock your processor. If you are not overclocking, then I would recommend the air-cooled CPU cooler option which will be more quiet and have less moving parts that may potentially fail.

    This power supply is listed as accepting input 100-240V~3A 50/60Hz. Output 12V - 12.5A. The manufacturer lists this PSU as "Low heat dissipation with efficiency over 96%."
  • Asus Xonar DX PCI-E picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    The Xonar DX sound card comes with a front port header, to support audio to the front (mic / headphone) ports in your case.

    It is worth noting that Asus does Not list ASIO supported drivers for this sound card. So if you are using software that requires a sound card with ASIO support, it would be advisable to choose a different sound card.

  • Samsung 31.5-inch UH750 UHD Monitor picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    The 3840x2160 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. This monitor has a pixel pitch of 0.181mm. 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) Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable
    (1) HDMI 2.0 cable

  • PNY Quadro P1000 PCI-E 4GB picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    This is a great card choice when you need to support many monitors for tasks like stock or commodities trading. This is a moderately powerful graphics card, but if you have higher-end 3D demanding programs that you intend to run such as CAD or 3D modeling, then you would want to choose a more powerful graphics card.

    When choosing a graphics card, it is always important to make sure the monitor(s) that you intend to use will have compatible connection types with the graphics card outputs.

    This card can support (4) 4K displays (4096x2160 @ 60Hz) with HDR color using its (4) Mini DisplayPort 1.4 connections.

    This card comes with (4) Mini DP to DP adapters. Adapters from Mini DP to other types can be purchased separately.

    Keep in mind that if you use the Mini DP to DVI adapters, the maximum resolution from those DVI adapters will be 1920x1200.
  • Logitech M500 Laser Mouse picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    I use a Logitech mouse very similar to this one, and really like the way they feel, along with their optic sensitivity. I have tried wireless mouse options before, and they always seem to run out of batteries at the worst time. I much prefer a wired connection, as that way you don't have to worry about batteries running dead, the cost of replacement batteries, hazardous material issues with expired batteries, or potential input lag.
  • Asus Z10PE-D16/4L (w/ ASMB8-iKVM) picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    This Asus motherboard does not have onboard audio. This typically is not an issue for servers, but if you would like to have audio capabilities, then you will want to add a dedicated sound card to your configuration when using this motherboard.

    This motherboard does offer (4) 1Gb Ethernet ports. So if you don't need more than (4) Ethernet ports, I recommend not adding a dedicated Ethernet card.
  • Samsung 34-inch CF791 Curved Ultrawide Monitor picture
    Jeff Stubbers (Technology Consultant) Says:
    This curved display offers the Ultra-wide 3440x1440 resolution which is very nice for placing multiple windows side by side without overlapping. This monitor has (2) HDMI and (1) DisplayPort inputs, so you will want to make sure your graphics card has at least one of this outputs.

    Included Cables:
    Power cord
    DisplayPort cable
    HDMI cable

    Refresh Rate:
    DisplayPort: 3440x1440 (up to 100Hz)
    HDMI 2.0: 3440x1440 (100Hz)
    HDMI 1.4: 3440x1440 (50Hz)

    Due to the potential refresh rate, it is recommended to use a DisplayPort to connect your graphics card to your monitor if you have the option.
