I hope you don't mind me asking this here:
Hi guys, I'm currently in the process of researching some hardware for my
next ubuntu workstation.
My goal is to spend between 500 and 600 uds, and I want to put some enfasis
on what I think is the current bottle neck of speed this days, and that is
I would like to have a RAID array to have better performance.
I am thinking in getting Intel 2 Core Quad 8300 processor. But I am open to
other choices too. Because Ubuntu is more focus on software/fake RAID I
would like a multicore processor, and 64bit arch sounds good too.
So right now my options looks something like this:
Processor Intel Core 2 Quad 8300
RAM 1 X 2gb DDR2 800mhz
Mother Intel Dg43gt
HD 2 X 500gb SATA 3.0Gb/s
If I could I would like more drives in RAID.
And if possible real RAID?
I found about this controller: Syba PCI Express SATA II 4 x Ports RAID
Controller Card SY-PEX40008
PCI Express with transfer rate 2.5 Gb/s Full Duplex channel. Fully Plug
& Play compatible. Supports Raid function 0, 1, 5, 10. SATA II Interface
I had some people comments about AMD but I am kind of unfamiliar and I
thought the Quad was a nice processor but that it used to be too overpriced.
Any comments guides or recommendations would be great, I feel a bit in the
dark with this and would surely appreciate some guidance.
