    Re: What Size PSU For New Build

    XFX says 750 is a minimum, they recommend an 850. So I'd go at least 850.

    1000 may be overkill, but a good quality PSU with plenty of juice to run your system is a great place for overkill in my...

    Re: 1 SSD vs 2 SSD/HDD

    Cost is always an issue. To try and take it out of the equation is impossible.

    Re: What Size PSU For New Build

    According to the Newegg calculator you'd need at least 684. I'd go atleast 1000 to make sure you have plenty of overhead, room for expansion, and can offset capacitor aging.

    I always go...

    Re: What Linux distro do you prefer and why?

    Funny I said I wasn't a big fan of rolling release distros like Arch above. Now that openSUSE has one (Tumbleweed) I'm loving it.

    I've always liked the idea of one, but they seemed to always be...

    Re: What Linux distro do you prefer and why?

    Arch is nice. I ran it on one of my desktops for about 3 years. Took me a while to get everything set up the way I liked it but it was fairly nice once I did.

    I'm just not a fan of the rolling...

    Re: What Linux distro do you prefer and why?

    I use to be a big Ubuntu fan but for the past few years they have just been making lots of weird decisions I can't get on board with.

    I've decided to bed down with openSUSE these days. I'm a big...

    I've not actually tried the fallback mode. I've heard mixed reviews of it. I've mainly tried Gnome 3 via a Fedora live disk. I'm not sure if one can try fallback mode with it or not.
