What are your specs n stuff?
I got an ubuntu with
also i got a pc with
amd fx 9850 4.7Ghz 8 core
The machine I am using right now was built in January of this year and I honestly regret it. GPU and RAM prices have gone off the charts high and the difference between what I spent and what the actual value of the parts were is honestly embarrassing now that I look back. I chose the parts with a focus on gaming and also something that looked good. All the parts are brand new. So without further ado, here's the specs-
Intel Core i5 7600k CPU
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Dual Fan OC Edition Graphics Card
Asus Prime z270-A ATX Motherboard
Thermaltake SMART 700w Non-Modular Power Supply(Strongly regret not buying semi-modular)
8GB of Ballistix Sport LT 2400 MT/s RAM
2TB SeaGate BarraCuda SATA Hard Drive
120GB Kingston A400 SATA SSD
Windows 10 Pro OEM Key
I strongly regret not waiting for the prices to calm down before buying a better GPU and more RAM. The low amount of both RAM and VRAM has served as a rather large bottle neck in gaming, which is what I built this PC for. I wouldn't say I'm disappointing, it works great and runs things smoothly, but it could be better.
Bought it before the price increase, totally worth it
Running Windows 10 on these:
8GB DDR4 Ram
The machine I'm using at the moment is a used PC I purchased from Tamaqua PA public library (they replaced their old PCs) for about $25, originally had WinXP SP3; probably about 6 - 8 years old. All I did was wipedisk and installed Ubuntu Linux 16.04. Use it for general purposes and learn Linux. Naturally use Fire Fox. No problems except yahoo.com slows it down due to all their advertising scripts - suspect some of them have hidden bitcoin operations. It does what I need at the moment.
2 GB memory
CPU Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E4700 @ 2.60GHz × 2
Graphics Intel® 945G
I'm currently working on a cheap build that in the end will cost me only less than $200. I got bought a cheap prebuilt steal of a deal for $80 and it has an i5-3470 with 16GB DDR3 RAM. Then, I bought a GTX 750ti for $65. I found an old PSU lying around so I replaced the exisiting PSU with a 500W one with the new GPU addition. I'm very happy with this build.
My computers are...
i7 / 16 GB / GTX 1050Ti / 1xSATA 10krpm + 2xSATA 7k2rpm (RAID1) / Win 10 Pro 64.
i5 / 4 GB / GTX 660 Ti / 1xSATA 7k2rpm / SparkyLinux 64
Dell E6410 : i5 / 4GB / Integrated GFX / 1xSATA 7k2rpm / SparkyLinux 64
Lenovo X200 : i C2D P8400 / 4GB / Integrated GFX / 1xSSD / Debian 9 64
Samsung NC10 : i Atom N270 / 2 GB / Integrated GFX / 1xSATA / Debian 7 or 8
I was an early adopter of AMD's new Ryzen chip. I payed extra for that. Within a year of building it, Intel came out with coffeelake, which was somewhat cheaper but faster than kabylake. And, now AMD has the 2nd Gen Ryzen out, which is cheaper and out performs my early 1700.
The build is ASrock x370 Mb
Ryzen 7 1700 cpu
32gB DDR4 2200ish Ram
2x2TB HDD/raid 0'd
My build is a little old at this point. It had a major refresh in 2013 with a new motherboard and CPU. And this year I put a new graphics card in it. Finally went AMD yet again. Though been having some issues with AMD's latest drivers. And I also uncovered that the CPU now is a bottleneck, so planning on upgrading to Ryzen when they release new chips next year.
Here are the specs:
Motherboard: MSI Z77 MPower
CPU: i5 3570K, overclocked to 4200MHz
RAM: 16GB DDR3 at 1600MHz
GPU: RX 580 8GB
Boot Drive: Samsung 850 Evo 250GB
OS: Windows 10 Pro
I've got a GT 705, 8GB of DDR3 RAM and a Core i5 - a Dell Inspiron Desktop, however now I've got more into gaming, I'm saving up to buy a Gaming PC from CyberPower PC. The specs I've chosen is a Ryzen 3 2200G, a MSI Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB, 16GB of DDR4 RAM. I'm looking forward to having enough money for this build, it'll be a good one. I'm planning on using it for school work and also a bit of FiveM, which is a modded and multiplayer version of GTA V, its a lot of fun.
