I'm a n00b to the community, so hello. After a few weeks of reading and researching I'm ready to take the plunge. Please tell me what you think of the build i'm speccing on new egg. I'm looking to spend around $1200. I'm also curious, what distributions/installations you think might be the best bet. Boot 132? Kalyway? Thanks : )
