Hi totallymaxed/ tschak909
Thanks for the advice, I was thinking of using it as a pure core machine only but it probably is not fast enough. The other machine that I was going to use is an Intel Dual processor with 4gb ram and an NVDIA 8800GTS card. Have tried unsucessfully to install using the DVD. Have not been able to use the cd install as no matter what I do I cannot get the installer to install.
After reading through the forums there seems to be issues with nvidia 8 series cards with convuluted methods to solve them, any easier methods to solve this issue?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
