http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello, I am thinking of buying a desktop and installing it as a dual boot (FC12 and Windows 7). The shop owner drew up the following specs. He said to run it past a FC forum to check out hardware compatibility. Do you think there will be any hardware problems with the following? Or would it be better to buy an off-the-shelf Dell such as a Dell T3500? Chip: CPUIT8750 Intel Core i5 750 2.66 GH Processor Socket 1156 (8MB L3 Cache) Mother board: MBDGBM0202 GIGABYTE P55A-UD4 USB3.0 & SATA3 motherboard, 4x DDR3-2000, (Crossfire X and SLI), 8 SATA2 & 2 SATA3, Hardware Riad, 3*1394A, 12 USB & 2 Rear USB3.0, Gigabit Lan Nvidia graphics card: VGAGBV0157 GIGABYTE N26OC-896I GTX 260 OC 896MB GDDR3 w/ Native HDMI Output (3 Years warranty) Memory: MEMKHX3090 Kingston 4GB HyperX 2000MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM (Kit of 2) XMP Tall HS Hard disk: HDDWD1912 Western Digital Black Edition 1TB 32M Cache 3.5" Internal SATA2 HDD(WD1001FALS) DVD: DVWLGC21 LG CH08LS10 Blu-Ray COMBO Drive Black Color LightScribe Retail box Cooling fan: PSUCOR0550 Corsair 550W VX Series PSU Ultra-quiet 120mm double ball-bearing fan Screen: MONLGL2343 LG W2343T-PF 23" Full HD Lcd Monitor, 1920 * 1080, 5ms.
