Debian machine try 2

on Monday, 24 March 2014
I was able to confidently compose the components to a good desktop development system. Thanks to the hardware compatibility check over at linuxmint.com. Now, it does differ from the other build, yet it stays the same at some levels.

This system is cheaper, however, that came as a small bonus as I had no intention to make it cheaper. I just coundn't take the risk of maby buying a component that would be badly supported or somehow not work in combination with another component.

The whole linux world is fairly new to me, i'm in the learning process as they call it. Post a comment on what you guys think. I think this build is final, unless someone eyes out a component and has a better reason to buy another.

Thanks for reading!

get the fx-8320 and the 990FX Extreme3 its worth the extra money and it works perfectly with linux! And BTW. WD Green drives are for storage more than enough and the are cheap :D using a fx-8350 + Extreme3 + WD green and it works perfectly!!

and for graphics: get a cheap nvidia graphics card they just work!
amd works also but is more likely to fail (i have a r9 270X and it was hard to get it working right)
