Hmm, isn't putting Linux on a powerhouse machine rather like turning a bull into a steer, if you know what I mean? I mean, you've got a powerhouse gaming machine that you basically just turned into a limited word processing and web browsing box. It'll do it FAST, but that's about all it can do.

I really hope you're dual booting Windows so you can put that graphics card to use. That is of course unless you already play Warsow or something like that in Ubuntu.

and photo/video editing, encoding, etc. everything i ever did in osx/windows (except gaming, but i'd rather leave that to my xbox)
well, the RAM and GPU are overkill, but when i built it, i figured i would play lots of games. after i installed ubuntu to try out, i never went back to windows

but, i can play pingus on high settings:

but really, i am looking to downgrade the gpu.

I'm dual booting ubuntu and windows, so if i ever feel a need to torture myself, i can boot vista

What type of Keyboard is that and how well does it work for you?
