Building a workstation from parts.
I am planning on building a semi green PC. I would like to use the Wolfdale processor because it is the latest in high energy efficiency. The power supply will be a 500 watt Seasonic which is again a high efficiency component but all in the all this system will be a high energy use system. I will also try to buy an HP w2007 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor again this is a high efficiency monitor in terms of energy use. So this will be a PC rather than a Mac. It will run Windows Vista and Debian Linux. Yesterday I purchased a motherboard for this project. I simply bought an Asus high end board on sale at PC Cyber www.pccyber.com The board is an Asus P5WDG2 WS so brings me into the quad core dual core world for the first time. .
