Hi, which datacenter are you using in the NL? I’m surprised you found one that that delivers these specs (AMD Ryzen 5 3600x, 16 ГБ DDR4, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, 1TB NVME SSD). I suppose you’re not moving the HW from Belarus to the NL.

Which datacenter are you planning on going with? You might have to upgrade your ram as well.
