going to run through this list ...

Approximate Purchase Date: sometime next month

Budget Range: 600-800 before rebates, not including monitor keyboard mouse speakers ect

System Usage from Most to Least Important: umm dunno i just want a good machine thatll last a while

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg or any others you may recommend

Country: im in the us, dont care where the parts come from as long as they arent junk

Parts Preferences: not overly picky

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: dunno what this is im noobish

Monitor Resolution: dunno

Additional Comments: i have a list of parts ive saved into a wishlist on newegg,, researched as much as i could and well heres a list please feel free to recommend alternative hardware and such... one of my main MUST HAVE is a machine thatll run linux, i keep it simple running either kubuntu or opensuse. gaming would be a nice plus but not totally a must "thats what the ps3 is for afterall" anyways heres my build list please please please check it out... i wanna stay around 600-750 less is always better but dont wanna pull away from the specs of this list too much..

Subtotal: $748.91 <that was the total with the current sale prices plus a 17 dollar flash drive i removed from the above list so not going by that total too much im sure sales will end and others may start by the time i place my order but overall what do you guys think? the only think i found on the mobo about linux is one guy reveiwed it saying it ran linuxmint fine but besides that nothing asrock never responded to my questions. thanks in advance for any advice

oh and the item #s are from neweggs site, thats where i generated the wishlist

im not against a full list overhaul either, amd isnt a must but if i can keep the price down thats ideal,, i love that case but i can easily dump that for a less expensive one as well
