the c0rey foldman

[ [ [ 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.

Where’s the hard drive? I don’t need one. The flash drive will be loaded with Knoppix and [email protected]

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.
