View Full Version : [ubuntu] New Ubuntu board, CPU, and RAM

August 4th, 2009, 04:03 AM
Hi all,

My old Debian machine crashed, and I would like to build a new one for Ubuntu. The new machine will be a server and will probably run Ubuntu server.

I'd like to run 64bit, but will settle for 32 if necessary. Primary applications will be Zope and Postgres. I will not need gaming grade video; a card that will last is more important.

I have a hard disk, PS and case that are all very good. I need a MB, CPU, and RAM. Perhaps video as well. Currently I have an older nVidia MX-440SE that still seems to work well, but don't know if 64 bit can run it.

What I would really like to hear from members is configurations of MB, CPU, RAM, and perhaps video that are working well. What's your favorite combo?
