| Hi gang,
| For some reason i got a workstation with 2 quad core intel E5410
| cpus and 8GB of FB-DIMM memory. It has only one PCI-E 16x slot, and
| the card on that slot is NVdia 8600GT with 256 DDR3 mem.
| I plan to install Ubuntu 7.10 64bit on it.
| The question is, with this box, what can I do with it?
| I am thinking of use it for graphic, animation or video editing, but
| i am not sure if the graphic card is good enough for doing it and is
| there any software i can use for these purpose.
| Fold at Home?
| any suggestions are welcomed ....
| At the risk of being drawn and quartered. I'd make it a Windows gaming
then drawn and quartered it is!! lol
why make it a windows gaming box when almost all windows games run under
wine perfectly or with minimal fuss?
