 RE: Hardware sugestions for a FreeBSD box
Author: W. Casama

Well, I'm running an AMD K62-500 w/ a d-link 530TX nic... 3x3gb hdds...1 meg video card (I don't really need X anyhow).

Why this gear? 1) Cheap. I got my rig for a total for $325CDN or so... 2) well... I didn't really feel like buying a p233mhz for almost the same price. 3) it's just so cool when you've never seen your processor idle time drop below 50%. 4) should I loose my sanity, I can make it into another windows machine.

I'm running it as a dedicated web server/development platform for a few CVSes and some other stuff.
