New Desktop PC

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 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?

Sorry hcvv
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 :wink:

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!!!:wink:

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 :smiley:

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…seems like a decent e-shop…guess now I know on what I’ll send my pay from and lol!
