In my previous post, I was advised not to go for the 'over-budget' system, if my only requirement is - web development, server side scripting and database programming. So keeping that in mind, I have come up with this build. Constructive criticism is welcome.
Total ( after rebates and shipping ) = approximately $450 ( including the Computer Case)
Purpose: already stated - web application development, server side scripting and database programming
OS - Linux
So, my questions are as follows -
1. Have I chosen the proper video card ? I mean Should I chose a better one ? ( would it allow 3d acceleration, as required for the eye-candy in Linux environment)
2. Do I need a more powerful PSU ?
3. Do I need an after market heat sink or will the stock heat sink will suffice ? ( I need the system to run cool )
And please suggest any other things you'd like to chance.
Plus I don't think i need a 128 GB SSD, 64 will do fine.. Since i will mount / and /root on the SSD and /home on my HDD. Not really planning on using LVM schemas.. so it should be simple. The price difference is about $30, which sort gets me the motherboard while containing the budget.
