I already own a awsome computer for gaming and all my intensive tasks. For certain reasons I do not want to dual boot my main computer. For this reason I am going to build a secound computer in order to mess around with a 64-bit version of linux.
Basically I just going to use this computer for educational purposes.
1. Learn linux well
2. programming linux application in a linux enviroment
3. streamline linux
4. maybe even mess around with the linux code a bit
I trying to keep the computer as cheap as possiable and still be able to use it for what I need. I dont think I will need all that much power for this stuff.
This is what I am thinking of buying.
AMD Sempron 64 2600+ Palermo $65
ASUS K8N Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250 $70
Patriot 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) $47
Western Digital Special Edition 80GB 7200RPM $56
Lite-On Black 52X32X52X16 Combo Drive, Model SOHC-5236K $34
XCLIO XClio 450BL ATX 450W Power Supply 230Vac $53
CHENMING 301KESL $35
Video card was not included because I have a radeon 9600 pro laying around my house that I am going to use so I dont need to buy one.
Does this look like a decent setup for my tasks to everyone?
