It looks ok, but I'd bump up the video card to at least a 5900 if you wanna play Doom 3 when it's available for Linux.


And as for the hard drive, yeah, I agree. My games partition alone is 40GB, heh.

Well the video card says it supports Doom 3 if you scroll down...I think that's the reason I got it :D




Ah, well, here's hoping it performs well. I am disappointed with my GF4 Ti4200 and was since I bought it, so next time I'm not skimping. :)

1GB of MB RAM? LOL! Typo.


Must be lol. nah I think that 512 is plenty for todays game, maybe in a few months or years I should get a few more sticks of RAM.




Well, how more RAM, how faster programs will compile... :)


edit: and games ofcourse :P

I like my 5700 ultra, plays my games just fine.  You might look for a hardrive that gets 8MB cache too.  I don't mind my ti4200 either but Dolson plays more games than I.



I only have a Ti4200 as well. Most of my gaming these days takes place on my Xbox. I have all but given up on Linux gaming.
