I don't want to advertise for anyone but....

This is a hell of a deal.  quad core, terabyte SATA drive.  The only downside seems to be the power supply.  Seems kinda small to me.

2 gig of memory doesn't buy you a ticket on the bus anymore. its a decnt deal but like all the other deals I found, you can't get a great machine fro a deal.

YEah, I have this nice case I was saving to set this all up in.
I put the powersupply in, then went to put the motherboard in, and noticed that it don't fit.
Yea, apparently it's a miniatx case. Silly me.
So the only other case I have doesn't have a hole in the side. Maybe I'll make one.
So air is supposed to go IN the side or out? If it goes out, and it goes out the power supply, where's the intake supposed to be?

side= intake, back=out

any others (like i've seen have 4-5 fan ports) can be ins or outs depending on their position. like a front-panel fan should be an intake to cool your PCI slots. a bottom-rear pci controlled fan should be an out to pull hot air away from your PCI.   really, the air flow works best going from front panel of tower to back panel of tower. unless you're liquid cooling then it doesnt really matter.

Front to back it is.

The windows7sins... while the large picture is admirable, like all propaganda, the details themselves are a little sketchy.
Just once I'd like to see somebody try and evangelicise without becoming militant and bending all sorts of examples just to PROVE that they are right.
Don't even go halfway, go 25% of the way.
a few reasonable arguments are more likely to sway intelligent people than a lot of really contrived arguments.

Absolutely. 2gig is enough for a single-OS machine, just barely enough for a virtualized setup with one host and one guest, as long as the words "Vista" and "Windows 7" are NOT uttered in the same sentence. Strictly Windows XP. And even then, 2 gig is just the bare minimum and your machine will start thrashing on occasion if you allocate a healthy amount of RAM to the guest.

Ford: the FSF's propaganda will always fail because they assume that the whole world would care about "software freedom" as much as Richard Stallman does, if only they knew about it. Relatively few people care about the undisputable fact that Microsoft and its products are evil. You have to give them practical reasons to switch; philosophical reasons are too cerebral.

I have 2 gig in my main desktop/dev machine and it's maxed out and it sucks.
But I can run 2 and sometimes 3 small vms and the machine is still usable.
I need one to run w2k just big enough to run vpn software and remote desktop, so that one's pretty small. I have another one that I run xp in so that I can run flash 9&10 programs, and they can both run side by side with no problem.
2 gig really is hindering if you want to run eclipse at the same time though.

Oh, I run an XP box with a Linux guest, and I like to run Firefox AND Eclipse in EITHER the XP OR the Linux guest, depending on my mood and which i is more convenient (as in will save me some fraction of a second) at any given moment. 2 gigs is not nearly enough for that (was thrashing in the guest just a moment ago, and had to shutdown firefox.) 3 gigs might do the trick, but I'd prefer 6-8 gigs and a 64 bit host kernel.

I just got the linux raid thing setup and working. My next endeavour is to do that.
So... can I run 32bit built binaries in a 64 bit environment?
I hear there's a version of xp that does 64bit and can address more than 4gig of memory.
Can it run native 32bit build exes?

Supposedly, yes.  I've run native 32-bit exes on a Win64 machine.  And the 64-bit os can address more than 3 gig of memory (32-bit OS is limited to 3 gig).  Should work without issue.

cool thanks.
I'm debatinglinux or xp64 for my new machine.
I'd prefer linux, but sometimes I justfind the interface so annoying, I'm not sure I want to live in that world all the time.

VM makes that irrelevant. If you have hardware VT (which any recent CPU does) then you can run Xen for free, with Linux in dom0 and 'doze in domU with very little performance penalty on either.

I thought xen... I don't remember, but I remember there being something wrong with xen that it couldn't do certain things.
But if I remember right, it doesn't emulate anything, it just runs things flat out, whereas vmware emulates.
Although by now I'd imagine that vmware has built in support for the virtualization hardware on the processor no?

Xen cannot do true virtualization on CPU's without hardware VT, only "paravirtualization" (which requires special builds of your operating systems). Since you are buying a brand new CPU this is not an issue for you.

Xen virtualization runs quite nicely if you have VT because the hardware is (finally) designed for it. You could also run VMware ESXi, which is their "bare metal hypervisor" but that does make the server headless; you'll need to *always* connect to the console with their client (which is Windows only; dunno if that's an issue for you).

Last time I installed vmware esxi (or some variant of esx, years ago) it didn't require an OS because it came with its own: linux. So who's kidding who here.
