Glad you got your sound working.
That's a pretty badass rig, for free.
sweet free system, thats an upgrade from my main system
Sounds like you won the lottery. Free quad core machine thought I had it good when I found Mass Effect 2 at a Garage Sale for $4
Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
Better than mine :/ Mine's good enough for me though (except I need a new GFX Card).

Lucky you! The last free computer I got was Intel Celeron with 128MB RAM and no hard disk. So I salvage whatever I had to built a whole computer with Lubuntu installed. That's a great computer.
Sounds good, but if you're using it for multimedia you should really be using Windows on it. Windows is alot better for multimedia and there are lots of really good apps.
Each to their own though
I've been lucky to upgrade my systems from donated and give-aways; laptop, 2 P4 desktops and 6 P3! Now I'm hoping work will raffle off their replaced systems and if lucky can get another P4, possibly a dual-core or even a laptop (wish I could get my work laptop and install Linux on it!)
Also had a friend stop by yesterday and he was impressed. At first he thought I was running Windows 7. It is just the basic Gnome install, nothing fancy or really customized. He was blown away by all the things it could do (and I haven't even fully configured everything yet), and wondered how much it cost. When he found out the box was free, and so was the OS, he nearly fainted. He cannot do half the things with either his XP or Vista that I can do with Ubuntu.
This is a signature. It is original.
