Solved First build, does this work (well)? Tags: Build Systems Last response: August 1, 2011 10:46 AM in Systems Share Nameguy July 31, 2011 6:16:21 AM I'm new here, so sorry for any stupid things said, I have to write this quickly. My first build, on a $700 budget. Buying online in Canada. Cooler Master Case http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/searchtools/item... Antec PSU (optional) http://store.antec.com/Product/power_supply-earthwatts/... MSI Mobo http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

LITE-ON DVD-ROM Drive http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... Total: ~ CAD$575 (not incl shipping or tax) Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit (maybe 11.04) http://www.ubuntu.com I basically want to use Blender and play games, along with doing casual tasks. Would you say this is good? Middle-end? Most importantly, are these parts compatible? Thank you very much for answering a noob question!

Although I couldn't find a few parts on directcanada.cpm so I just went to newegg.ca, and I also decided to allocate 8GB of G.SKILL RIPJAWS RAM. Just one more question: Do you think I will be able to run Sony Vegas, Ableton Live, Macromedia Flash, and other programs on this Ubuntu system?
