I was trying to get some suggestions on a new $800 budget build that includes shipping. After taking a few suggestions, I made some adjustments so I can get the best out of $800. I do not know if these are good adjustments, so please help me review the parts.
If you don't have experience with Linux and general computer programming, Ubuntu would be a nightmare.
The build looks good for the most part. That motherboard is an odd choice (mATX & SLI ready, very limited expansion options, no USB3.0 or SATA III), though. I would go with a full size ATX motherboard instead. Otherwise that case is unnecessarily large. If you eventually want to run two GTX 460s in SLI, you will need a better power supply (at least a high quality 650W model).
