I have recently bought a new desktop pc and awaiting delivery of the machine this weekend? There is no operating system installed on the machine because the company novatech.co.uk would only install Windows so i decided to do without and install the operating system of my choice which is openSUSE Leap 42.3. I just hope that there will be no problems and that i will be able to access the Internet asap.
We hope the same. But what is the question?
I just thought i’d let the forum know that there was a openSUSE noob around who has just bought a new machine and intends to install openSUSE Leap 42.3
Post the hardware specs
Well, JUMP! lol!
Start the installer and see how far you get. When in doubt, ask here.
Yep. Welcome aboard, hope you find it as fun and fascinating – and productive – as I have over the years!!!
Have been wanting to try out openSUSE for quite some time. Here are the specs of the new machine:
Intel 7th Gen Quad Core I7 7700K 4.2GHz
Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 PC4-1700 2133MHz Dual Channel Kit
Novatech Power Station V2 Modular 600 Watt PSU
Cooler Master Masterbox 5T Windowed - Black with Red Accents
GIGABYTE GA-Z270P-D3 Motherboard
Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2 CPU Cooler
ASUS PCE-N15 300Mbps Wireless-N PCIe Adapter
Heck yeah, get that linux! Good luck ( ‘w’)b
Still one of the best gaming CPU’s out there… now get a 1080ti in there and install Steam
Unfortunately… or maybe fortunately, you will very likely have an uneventful installation and things will just work.
Maybe I missed it, but what was the video card or are you just using the built in Intel graphics for the time being?
Personally, I think the openSUSE community is going to be the best out there to interact with; Friendly and super helpful. You’ll like it here.
wow…these are great specs…actually I am also looking for a place where I can buy a new pc…checked novatech.co.uk…seems like a decent e-shop…guess now I know on what I’ll send my pay from upwork.com and yourhomeworkhelp.org lol!
