    I am getting back into linux and the only distro I have ever used was slack the last being slack 11. I know it will run on even the oldest machines, but, I want to build a new computer just for the latest version of slack, so if you would please, tell me what you would use in a totally empty case everything from CPU, motherboard, drives yada yada

    You left this so vague, so...

    18,688 nVidia K20 GPUs
    710 TB RAM
    50,000 RAID0 SSD 120GB drives
    Any motherboard that supports this
    18,698 AMD 16-core Opteron 6274 CPUs

    Yeah sorry, this last one I built was about 6 years ago. I just want to know what is working now a days, and didnt want some old legacy crap, but a fresh unit instead. Motherboard, CPU, drives etc. I was always a big fan of AMD and ASUS

    A place to start is to look for mobo/cpu/RAM deals like here, for instance. Many places to go!

    Best wishes!

    Yeah, I am partial to new egg and buy all my stuff there. I was just hoping to be given a short list of the items needed, like mobo, cpu, memory. Thanks
