[ [ [ Countdown to 3hirty Posts in April: FOUR! ] ] ]
Over the weekend, I went over to my favorite computer-shopping heaven on the www, Newegg.
For the past couple weeks, I was itching to build a Beowulf cluster, but the passion died down a bit after reading through some of RGB’s Beowulf book. The assembly will going to be very expensive, and I am unable to construct one of these beasts right now.
I still really want to move up in the ranks amongst the [email protected] community, so I purchased another machine.
“c0rey foldman” (I am naming it this.) will be built with the following:
- ASUS M3A78-EMH HDMI motherboard
- AMD Athlon X2 BE-2300 processor
- Kingston HyperX 1GB DDR2 SDRAM
- Kingston DataTraveler I 1GB flash drive
- A black mid-tower case with silver trim and a 350W PSU
I was going with absolute simplicity and low-power consumption with this configuration.
Where’s the video card? Integrated on the motherboard.
The parts should be arriving tomorrow and/or the next day. I am excited to build this computer, because I haven’t built a desktop this simple before. I hope all goes well. I’ll post pictures when this baby is born.
