Hi , I experiment a little bit with Ubuntu with PIV CPU, and I found the desktop slow, so I want to build the best system to use with Ubuntu, So I have some questions but before to give you an Idea, my Windows 7 is build ona i7-975 EE, WC , with 2 * 5870 , and 2 Intel SSD in raid 0 , so I'm use to have performance, and I intend to have the same with ubuntu
HD : will go with raid 0, I think we can't use trim, so I have to exclude SSD, right ?
GPU : I want something with no lag at all, but no need of a GPU for gaming.
CPU : 4, 6, 8 cores, what is the best, is Intel better with Ubuntu too. I have no problem to take AMD, if the performance do not suffer
Ram: how much we need for very good performance ?
what else I need to know , and sorry, english is not my first language
