http://forums.opensuse.org – I have a small amount of linux experience, including some terminal configuration so I am not a complete n00b but I dont want to have to struggle through days of configuration to get my hardware to work. Here is a list of the components that make up my system. Computer (2)Samsung Spinpoint 1TB Sata HD (3 x 2GB) Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600 (1) ASRock X58 Extreme LGA 1366 Intel X58 motherboard (2) MSI 275GTX TwinFrozr PCIe x16 video cards (would like to run SLI) (1) Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66Ghz Quad-Core Processor Monitor HP LP3065 DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor Peripherals Belkin N52 game pad Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 webcam Logitech Momo Racing wheel If I could get it set up enough to use the game pad and run steam games with SLI support, that would occupy about 90% of my computer use (including word processing, browsing...the usual stuff). I would probably dual boot with windows 7 to run everything else that I was too lazy to configure in opensuse. Thanks. (Distributions)
