Creating a great Linux workstation

The aptly named LinuxHardware has been running a series on creating a great Linux machine, and the pictures are finally in.  This is a great series to introduce you to building a Linux box with no hardware problems.


Or, for a second opinion, check out the newly updated PCPer Hardware Leaderboard.


"So, where's the value and justification for buying a system similar to this one, that costs about

fives times more than a budget system but has similar performance in several benchmarks? I think

the best way to look at this is one component at a time. After all, you could build your own

system by taking pieces of the ultimate workstation and mixing it with pieces of the budget

workstation. This could end up costing you much less but provide nearly the same performance in

the applications you run. As we always say around here, you should build the system that meets

your needs."


Here are some more Systems articles from around the web:
