You know how much coding you need to do in order to get those few games to run?

The only one I know that can run on Linux is Unreal Tournament 2004. That's the only game that I've personally seen with that option.

And why do you need good cooling?

I plan on getting two computers here soon, a cruddy old 1.7ghz celeron for a workstation, and an amd3200+ system for gaming.

it's really simple, put linux on the 1.7ghz, get a big hard drive for it, use it as your storage system for files you care about, then put WinXP on the 3200+ and use it for gaming.

if the 3200+ gets a virus, I just format and reinstall my games, no biggie. (windows systems that do nothing but play games are less prone to viruses anyway.)

I wont bend a finger towards playing games on linux, just not worth my time, i'd rather have two computers than go through that crap.

Bad compatibility is all that I don't like about linux, but as a workstation, it's god.

Bah. My computer is safe, that's all I know. ZoneAlarm Pro and Sygate Personal Firewall for my firewalls and NOD32 and Symantec Anti-Virus for virus control. Then I have Spy Sweeper, Adware Personal, Spybot Search & Destroy and Microsoft Anti-Spyware for spyware control. Safe and sound.
