RE: perfect debian computer

I have setup a few linux debian boxes in the past year, but I am by no means an expert.
Based  upon my trials, tribulations,failures and ultimate successes, I recommend the following:
1. Soundblaster Live sound card
2. NVidia Geforce 2 MX 32 meg video card. ( Inexpensive but it does a great job on 2D and 3D with the nvidia drivers.
3. Hauppauge WinTV card, if you're so-inclined.
4. IBM Deskstar Hard Drives. Great speed and quiet.
5. Iomega internal zip drives, again if you're so inclined.
6. 3Com internal modems. ( I have installed 2 with no problems. One was a PCI, the other an ISA. )
7. Plextor CD-RW.
Hope this helps.

ok, in my opinion:
modem: go with 3com modems, they are the best internal modems for linux since they generally aren't winmodems. almost all external modems will work. finally for internal modem info could try www.linmodems.com
sound card: i strongly recommend sound blaster 1024 live or sound blaster platinum.
video card: i'd go with nvidia
hope this helps, saqib
