  1. Hi! I'm newbie, so please bear with wordiness, and also please point out protocol errors or unclarities; I'll be happy to revise. Planning a Linux workstation (mostly single user with a few low-demand server apps), and found (kudos to author(s)!) "Best PC Workstation Builds of 2018". Not a gamer and like to minimize heat and noise, but I do moderate level scientific computing (R), database, and graphics( GIMP or Photoshop). The machine may also run a virtual machine host (e.g. VMWare) to host guest OS's such as Windows or 32-bit Linux. Data integrity is very important. Disk throughput is important The "Mid-Level" looked about right. I'd like to get 5 years , so something with reasonable upgrade potential would be good. Questions below are in context of that recipe. I'd much appreciate any comments. CPU. I looked at Ryzen, but feel, esp for Linux, it may be a bit soon. Thanks for comments on that. btw. I'm not too clear of the differences between members of the core-i7-7000 range. Linux manages multiprocessors well, I think. Based on what I have said, would the the CPU recommendation change? How far can the CPU be upgraded before the socket is changes? MOBO: Would like ECC memory option if possible, and also heard good things about Asus boards. Surprised that there are no onboard graphics. Is that a limitation of the Intel 77xx line? (but this is not a critical point; see GPU below). Memory: Was looking at Kingston. Any thoughts on that vs Crucial or Corsair? 16GB is plenty for now. Bootdrive: How does Kingston DC400 (~480GB) compare to the Samsung 850 Pro? Storage Drive: I already have several WD100 7200 rpm drives and am planning to use 4 in a 2TB software RAID 10 array OS: Linux. Does anyone test any designs with Linux? Case: I have a 10-year-old, quite large, Lian-Li aluminum case that I was planning to use. Fans might be small by modern standards. Any other negatives? GPU: Thank you for the intro to the PNY Quadro series. I think the P600 would easily meet my needs. Btw, there seems to be a P620 available. How is the company on timely Linux support? Apologies if I ran on! I'd much appreciate any comments, suggestions, or feedback, especially if there might be potential Linux problems. Thanks!
