My System Specs

Default

Installing linux as a VM and running f@h has terrible performance. You'd be better off running the console in windows. Well, that's according to all the testing i've done.. but haven't tried anything new in the past 4 months, and haven't contributed since March, heh. As your main workstation, yeah.. I could see wanting windows on it for gaming, etc - but if you're looking for pure PPD horsepower, a baremetal install of ubuntu/debian will yield the best ppd overall for bigadv.
