Back again!

I’m back – finally! I got a new computer (no, not for Christmas, bought the parts myself a few weeks ago and assembled it myself) and until now it works great. Hopefully it stays that way…

The main specs are:

  • Gigabyte GA-M55S-S3 (nForce5) motherboard
  • AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200 (Dual Core) CPU
  • Gainward BLISS 7600GT 256MB video card
  • 2 GB RAM (dual channel enabled)

Though there are some quirks concerning Linux and ACPI support with the current BIOS of the motherboard I’m pretty content with everything – as there is a workaround this issue. I will write something about that in the near future, but I’m still undecided which Linux distro I should use… At the moment it’s boiling down to Ubuntu 6.10 or Fedora Core 6. Well, let’s see and be sure that I’ll let you know 😉
