So my current Desktop was built close to 6 years ago… I am know piece mealing
a new machine. I already have the case and my primary M.2 Boot drive.
Here is a Link to the Parts list I am working for. Well, at least when I have been considering.
Sorry tried to include a PC Parts picker link, but wont let me.
I am a Linux User, Primarily been Ubuntu for more than 10 years.
I do primariiy Web development - Node, Python, Java, PHP. With Docker.
I play 1 game on the PC, Star Wars The Old Republic. I have run it in WINE, but the old machine is starting to show her age, and I think it’s time to change it up.
What I want to do in my new machine, Run Linux as my primary OS with IDE’s, and Docker environments.
HAve a Windows VM with a seperate M.2 Boot disk and Video card.
Maybe have a third GPU for playing with Machine learning etc.
I have already decided that 64GB is minimum amount of RAm I will install, I am thinking about 3200 14CAS GSkil ram.
What I would like is recommendations about CPU (Ripper was my first thought, but would consider Dual Xeons, or the third Gen R7 or R9.)
I am piece mealing so I am budgeting myself at about 2-3K. I am in the United States.
Would love to hear what folks would recommend for Motherboard/CPU combinations.
One other thing, what is the current Status of CrossFire or SLI in linux, or passing through using IOMMU?
I think that 16 cores is my absolute minimum, and 2.5 GHZ is the minimum clock I am willing to run.
Thanks for any insight, I think that covered the requirements.
