I'm currently thinking abount building up a mini ITX PC for general use - mostly office-stuff, some work, programming, matlab (nothing serious) and maybe some warcraft 3 games. I'm going for something very cost-efficient, with low power consumption - no laptop though
Pretty sure onboard gfx is more then enough for it - though I need 2 monitors for work and stuff - got a T240HD (24", DVI/HDMI) and an old 17" with VGA only.
Also - I'm planning a double-boot system with win7 and something like Fedora / Ubuntu / *insert another distro*, so it needs to not be blacklisted for Linux.
So - i was thinking whether someone could give me some advice on picking the appropriate parts etc.
Until now I've stumbled upon:
Fusion is fairly new so I don't know how polished the Linux drivers are. Even so it has a powerful IGP which is what you need if you're doing any gaming, low power consumption, and enough CPU power for that tasks you have in mind. You can also look at VIA products, which are just fast enough for office tasks and have low power consumption, but kind suck performance wise compared to Intel Atom and AMD Fusion.
