Hey all! Thanks for taking the time, and also any advice.
I haven’t built a PC in a really long time, so I hope I got most of this right. I feel like all my work needs checking by someone more knowledgeable.
What this PC is For
Software development in Linux. I run lots of containers and compile lots of things in lots of languages. I am dabbling in machine learning.
I’m a huge gamer, but I have a family so I’m usually not up on all the latest trends. It would be nice to be able to play VR games. I’d specifically like to play Cyberpunk 2077 at higher quality levels when it gets released. I want to run games either in Linux or using VFIO and a Win10 VM. Dual booting is not an option because I lose so much context when I reboot, and sometimes I just want to load a game for 15m or so. I really want to make sure this build works with VFIO!
I am swapping in an old GeForce GTX 660 while I wait for AMD and NVIDIA to release their new cards. I’m planning on an AMD card for Linux, and maybe an NVIDIA card for Win10? I know NVIDIA’s driver complains. How hard is that to work around?
Are there any other parts I should wait on due to upcoming releases?
