Wrassling with linux.
So... I bought a new computer from newegg. To store files... and render... and it turns out its leaps and bounds faster than my desktop. Got it for $633 and it can run anything ever made with ease.
Pentium D 805 2.66 ghz (can be overclocked to 4.0)
2 GB cheapass ram
x2 120 GB harddrives not gonna be raided cause I'ma dual boot linux and windows
Geforce 7300 GT
Asus Nforce motherboard of some kind
Anyways put it all together and you get an incredibly fast rig. The problem is I've been fighting it to the death for the past few days and I got WoW running for a total of 12 seconds... well on linux anyways. I dont have an extra lisence of windows yet so I cant get it to reliably run my games or rendering software. But my god... dual core linux runs like a dream and the games I can play on it *quake 4* runs leaps and bounds better than I've ever seen it play... Max graphics with multiprocessor support... HOLY HELL...
Gimme a few more days and I'll be back on WoW killing whatever it is that I logged off next to.
-The computer is named Shark in honor of shark week.
-The computer's case looks like a refrigerator
-Shark week kicks ass.
