Hi guys. Okay, I want to build a socket 1156 Intel i7 PC, and I have a budget of £450-500. I want to know, preferably from like minded people, which components & chipsets are tried and tested with Ubuntu, from a minimum OS of 10.04.
I know ATI cards are to be avoided like the plague, as they don't play fair with GNU/Linux. I would be going for as cheap an Nvidia card as I can get. Processor wise, I am looking at the i7-870 CPU, and probably going to buy between 4-8Gb DDR3 ram. Are there any glaring motherboards, devices or chipsets which I should avoid?
The parts I already have, are:
3/ Sata drives
The motherboard I am looking to use is:
Asus P7H55-M Pro
Any help is most gratefully received. My budget cannot be exceeded.
Thank you, enjoy your day!
