AMD X4 920 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Gigabyte AM3 785G board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... DDR3 RAM (Start with 4GB and go from there if you need more) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Just some small stable PSU... Great deal on a 400CX atm: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Proximon a b 4 Gaming August 14, 2009 10:59:56 PM Just head on over to Gigabyte and see if they have any Linux drivers posted for the board. Obviously sound is not very important, and the video is no problem, but you need chipset and network compatibility. zinc00 August 14, 2009 11:04:39 PM thx Proximon 4 ur advice, I'm reviewing the hardware by names.. all good now zINco zinc00 August 16, 2009 2:43:54 AM what Bistro do u ppl prefer for a Gaming Server?
