Could anyone tell me where to ask question about hardware? Such as network interface card?

    Best bet would be serverfault.com or possibly superuser.com for PC related issues. Read the FAQ on each site before posting to ensure that your question is valid. Jan 27, 2011 at 16:51
  • You should go here: superuser.com

  • @Barry Only needs at least 3 votes for migration for that to happen ♪

    @Barry Because Meta Stack Overflow is the place to ask where questions belong on the Stack Exchange Network. It's not always intuitive where something belongs, and we operate as something of a central hub that can answer basic confusion on this topic.

  • As the linked duplicate post states above; Meta Super User is the place to go for Hardware Questions. superuser.com Jan 4, 2017 at 18:56

You can ask questions regarding computer hardware over at SuperUser.com. If your question concerns server hardware, there is an amount of crossover with Serverfault.com.

Update As of 2018, Hardware Recommendations is in beta.

  • At superuser they do not want this kind of question. After reading this comment I posted a question, but they want to close it as off-topic.

    @Scz Shopping questions are generally off topic across the whole of Stack Exchange, for the reasons given on your question. Feb 15, 2015 at 17:35
  • I, too, may be having my question closed as off-topic. I asked whether 4K TVs with DisplayPort exist. Denying recommendations on StackExchange seems like a strange policy since there's a SE site dedicated just to software recommendations. Oct 24, 2017 at 19:41
