Thirdly this computer build i want to predominately gear toward running a friendly linux distro such as ubuntu, linux mint or opensuse. And extremely important, the ability to make use of VT-x VT-D tech (although i think this is called something else for AMD?) so i can run windows in vmware and play games occasionally and run many virtual boxe for learning/ experiment how servers and the many things that follow from there work. Basically what was outlined in Voltan's Topic here https://teksyndicate.com/forum/linux/what-if-i-want-everything/157480.
If you guys have any suggestions on hardware changes/recommendations/criticisms i would be very interested to listen, even if they cause the price to rise as maybe i forgot something key toward what i attempted to gear it towards.
Everything below this point really isnt that important, just the reasons why i choose some of the things i did hardware wise.
My quick hardware rundown decisions: The reason i went with an amd processor, and particularly these new ones with lower energy consumption was because i heard that despite the power each core has, this one has eight and while it may not be the best for gaming, it really helps with the multitasking and virtual side when running client and servers boxes? Despite it being old architecture it apparently still kicks ass and has the benefit of being a fairly open technology in terms of that VT-X VT-D stuff? (This is a reason why i also chose an ati card, open source something or w/e?).
No specific reason behind the graphics card other than its ATI and as stated before they are somewhat open source so may prove beneficial to use in the long run? However i have had someone tell me having a good graphics card is important for running virtual machines so now i wonder if this card will be enough? :O
The case i choose based on Linus Tech Tip videos i have seen. He seems to regard this line with positivity and it sleek, simple yet modular design seems pretty adequate for my needs as i do infact want a full tower too. My second option would have been the THOR v2.
