You bought an office computer that's intended for emails and word. It's not going to play games. Never, ever, ever. I did this too when I was in high school. Put a shitty pci graphics card in it, didn't make a bit of difference. You can't turn a calculator into a gameboy.

2TB in what. Also, what processors? If it's 2TB in 73GB 10k RPM SAS it's probably not worth anything there.
2P 1U is going to be loud. If they're decent 12MB quad-cores it's a ton of crunching power for the money. The question is whether you have a use for it.

The former is solved if you do what I say. The latter has nothing to do with Facebook. It's an emergent characteristic of human civilization. If you have a problem with the latter then you should kill yourself or go live in a cave.

OP here:
yeah i sort of agree with a lot of people here about facebook but right now its the only way i have of keeping in touch with dozens of people and im not even sure how i would go about getting in touch with these people outside of facebook. my phone crapped out a couple of months ago when i moved to a new city but i still have my tablet. i got a job but i have been using fb as a way of keeping in touch with everyone.i dont even know why this would be happening now if they did not report it. i have been using the same name for years.

Why waste four years of your life on a CS degree when people coming out of four-month coding bootcamps get better jobs than you and earn 50% more than you?

Don't do CS.

Teach yourself how to program and then attend a coding bootcamp to learn best practices and to get industry contacts.
