since one of my systems died on me recently I had to go get myself a replacement.
total cash spent was $588.73 CDN
AMD AM2 3800+ cpu
Foxconn k8m890 motherboard
Liteon 16x dvd/rw [ black ]
Wd Sata 250GB 8mb cache @ 7200rpm
512MB DDR2 4200 ( 533MHz )
Asus Geforce PCX6200TC video
ob 10/100 nic
Coolmax v400 power supply
generic keyboard and mouse [ black ]
[ actually has ob video as well as the external card ]
6 USB ports, with support for 8
17" case with front usb and audio [ black ]
since I'm wanting to use it for an lfs box, I installed Mandriva 2007 to check hardware support, everything worked out of the box.
no driver issues at all.
[ but a very long device list.. 16 page long device list ]
nope, no games going on it, no windows going on it.
strictly a linux box.
