nikki93: I'm buying a new computer soon, got ideas for config?
nikki93: Basically, I'm gonna keep Windows around just for games (TF2 mostly), but use Linux for everything. I write games for a hobby, and do that on Linux, so I want hardware acceleration on Linux too.
Lightkey: 'nuff said
nikki93: A friend was suggesting Saphire Radeon.
nikki93: He said it was good for Linux, but I didn't think so.
nikki93: How's i7?
Lightkey: that is a model by BMW, right?
nikki93: nono i7 processor
Lightkey: so what aboot it?
nikki93: Is it good? :)
nikki93: I mean, I'm actually thinking about the /whole/ config.
nikki93: I guess case, keyboard etc., is 'whatever I find', but processor, gfx card, ram matters.
