Phoronix has published a Linux workstation guide
Over the past year, we have seen significant strides put fourth by the different vendors in the area of PCI Express with blazing fast graphics solutions, Socket-T processors which stunned the computer community by migrating all of the processor pins to the motherboard, along with other areas such as memory performance. At Phoronix, we have spent the last couple of weeks pondering over what really should go into a reliable Linux computer system for carrying out everyday productive tasks, along with some gaming, that can compete with today's demands along with whatever the future may throw our way.
