Brand New Linux Box

Today I have my very first all Linux Box! This system came without an OS and windows has never touched it. First Some Specs:

  • Systemax AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ 2.30GHz
  • 3GB DDR2 800 (PC2-6400)
  • 250GB Hard Drive
  • 9-in-1 Media Reader
  • Realtek ALC883 High Definition Integrated Audio
  • DVD±R/RW
  • Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 6100
  •  I have added a NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS 512 mb card

We paid $249.97 for it from tiger direct.

The other PC works fine, we purchased this with the intent on taking the other computer to the living room and hooking the T.V. up to it. We are planning to cancel our cable to save more money in the long run.

After getting the box setup in it’s proper location, I proceeded to turn it on. It of course informed me that there was no OS and I should pick something to boot from. I inserted the Ubuntu 9.04 disk & within 20 minutes had a fully functioning Ubuntu Desktop.

The System runs great I also finally have a working microphone, as my other p.c. had some sort of bug which refused to allow the microphone to work in Linux.

I’m totally stoked about having a new rig which runs Ubuntu so wonderfully.
