I am going to build a PC from scratch this summer. My new PC will have GBs of ram, a quad core processor. The processor will be virtualization capable so i can run Crysis on linux. Crysis is the most hardware intensive violent videogame on the market. And by Linux I mean Slamd64, of course. To play Crysis, I will pirate win32 (arrr). Virtualizing win32 will also enable me to play CS Source, so I can pug using the GameSurge network on irc. I'll get flash running on Slamd64 using nspluginwrapper. Apparently there is a forum post on the Slamd64 forums on nspluginwrapper. Then I plan on installing e17 on Slamd64 using modified SlackBuilds. Here are some of the system specs for my new PC:
$110. OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
