Looks good. The only issue I foresee is the Nvidia 8xxx series cards are giving most users here issues. Consider a 6xxx or 7xxx card, as they mostly appear to work out of the box. That's all I use in my systems at home.

Welcome aboard  ;D

Hi Seth
Thanks for the advice!
I have spent more time tinkering with my installations then using it.
So for the future I prefer to do more research about compatibility before committing to a particular setup.
My current setup is stable :)
Thanks to the forum I have been able to fix most everything so far.
Especially helpful were the instructions to set up the PPPOE connection
Cheers
John
