The first thing I learned about Linux is you must know how to separate the "wheat from the chaff". In the case of a Linux distro you must learn to edit configuration files. The problem with this is the configuration files are filled with "comments" (that is exactly what they are called, comments). The configuration page gets filled with the info needed to run the program and with comments that are not needed to run the program, but are suppose to tell you how to make your configuration changes. At times all these comments clutter things up. Some people get past the comments issue in 10 minutes and others struggle for a entire semester.

Tell us about your practice overclock PC (I want to make sure your board is truly an overclock board).Some motherboards (none that anyone on OCN would buy:) do not present you with the ability to get the most out of your hardware and getting the most out of your hardware is the name of the game. None of the 15 or so instructors I had going through college wanted anything spoken in their classrooms about overclocking, it is a self teach exercise (unless you get help elsewhere).I have seen really smart guys get weak kneed when overclocking is mentioned.

But do you need a special Programming language for setting up Linux?

About the OC i have a old P4 Computer i can try to OC with smile.gif, It wouldn't be that hard? Just change the multiplier and some other stuffs tongue.gif

If you shop online please give us a link of a site you can use so we can set a compatible parts list for you.

edit: oh and by saying dollar you mean USD, right? Otherwise I can't imagine building a PC for ~$250.

edit2: Here's a build i quickly threw together for a bit over $1500, it's AMD based because i see no point of wasting money on intel when most of your applications are probably going to be multi-threaded. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Y8Zj

Thanks i saw the shopping cart, And that one looked beautiful smile.gif Just don't know about the case :/, And also the cart was over my budget in swedish crowns :/ Lol i saved over 2000 sek on another shopping store xD, so it's not a problem smile.gif

Not really no its a waste of money both to buy and run if you dont use it all

Also newer hardware use less power not more

How about the Cooler Master HAF 912 or the Bitfenix Shinobi

850 watts is enough power for two high end video cards and CPU with crazy overclocks on everything as well as a full blown water setup and a bunch of HDD and you still have power left over

Unless you plan on all that you only need 550 watts max for a system with a single video card and 750 watts max for a system with two

No reason to waste a lot of money and then have even more money going out the window for no good reason

Just saying
