What happened to your $600 budget? Now you're spending it all on a cpu? Do you have a split personality or is this just all a game? I simply can't help you.

Wow.

First you say $600 is not enough to make build, to search and do my own build.

So I do.

I modify it, make my own build, and you still complain?

PMS much?

I think the confusion is that you're all over the place. Your original budget was $600, then you said it jumped up to $1,000-1,300, how we're at over $1,700.

I gotta ask, what are you doing that needs 2-3 virtual OS's in addition to the host OS?

Learning the distro's...


So you're going to learn how to use a few Linux distros, then what? You're spending nearly $2,000 on computing power to hopefully handle running a few versions of Linux in virtualization at once so you can pick one? Just build a decent PC for around $1,000 then work you way through a couple Linux distros until you find one you like. Once you do, dual boot your favorite plus Windows for gaming. You don't honestly think you're going to be running anything intensive in Linux WHILE gaming in Windows, do you? Seems like a waste.

I'd like to game and run linux to learn it better.

Not at the same time, of course.

I will try another build and see what I an come up with. Hopefully something in the middle that will accomplish both tasks.

Linux can run on a dinky Celeron a lot better than Windows can. It doesn't take much resources to run it on a VM either.

Hell I did some development work on a Linux VM on a Core 2 Duo laptop with 2GB of RAM... at the same time doing everything else.
