I haven't had/build me a top of the line machine since 1998 when Pentium II MMX were the bad ass thing
My desktop had been a Pentium 4 2ghz with 1gb ram and onboard video that is now retiring to be my ampache / torrentflux server
so needless to say i was over due for an upgrade esp. since I am a huge nerd.
I added 3 more case fans with blue LEDs just for shits and giggles and i'm not sure what to do next.
let me know if you have any linux questions id do my best to help ya out if you needed it.
