    New home lab for testing a need help.

    I do not have experience with dda in hyper-v but it looks like pcie-passthrough in ESXi. My experience with this in ESXi is that the only thing that matters is not letting your VM know it's a VM.

    Graphiccard for Server?

    I have been researching shared graphics in ESXi for some time now and i would recommend getting a grid K2. Do not get the K1 because that one has 4 'slower' chips while the K2 is basically a gtx 690 with different firmware. The only issue with these is that they are EoL and do not receive...

I recently bought one of these which worked instantly in my freenas box, and...
