    Nice, but why did you build this? There's no way it's going to run BeamNG well.

    not to be mean, but that's pretty terrible...you might be able to run the original top down view Grand Theft Auto 1 with decent FPS on low settings lol what did you build this for?

    Your build list there has a fatal error in it. AMD Athlon X4 740 in FM2 packaging, yet an intel LGA1155 motherboard....

    Protip #1 - FM2 will NOT mix well with LGA 1155 unless you enjoy many, many bent pins.

    Good idea doing a test build! I did my first build for real and had a DOA RAM problem that caused me 2 weeks of pain before I figured it out (d'oh)!

    Apart from the motherboard/cpu issue raised above, my advice would be not to skimp on the PSU - get a good brand with more wattage than you need for stability's sake.

    Get my PC, in the sig. Around $700 and can handle every game I have thrown at it with more than 45 FPS. People say that I should have gotten an FX-6300, but it was a set of parts.

    I have changed the motherboard .
    to a BIOSTAR A58MDP FM2+ / FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

    The reason i got a psu/case combo is because im on a 650$ budget
    but if any sales go on yes i will check out a better psu

    That's a pretty rockin' rig for the early 2000s. XP would be great on it. If you're going to build a rig in the future, post it here first. Or post a budget when the time comes and what you want to use it for.

    Then you don't know linux.

    Yet you think android would work?

    Clearly you dont know considering the linux kernel can run from under 4mb of RAM on sub 100MHz CPU's. Sure he won't run ubuntu, but ubuntu is incredibly bloated, his system will run the kernel itself just fine, puppy or arch would be well within its limitations.
    If it cant run linux then it wouldnt run android either with android being a rather bloated linux system....


    Actually, heres your proof:
    http://www.raspberrypi.org/
    700MHz ARM11 (ARMv6 hard float instruction set) with 512mb of RAM. Runs debian with LDXE desktop just spiffingly. I ran mine headless though. The model A variant drops that to 256mb of RAM. The ARM11 core at 1ghz is often compared to a P4 at 200MHz. So the pi is effectively a much lower specced system than the OP's system yet runs linux just fine, can do OpenCV and web hosting without issue.
    I used mine for a robot, playing quake 3, playing DOOM and learning C.

    Nope. http://www.raspberrypi.org/faqs#performanceSpeed says: This means that graphics capabilities are roughly equivalent to the original Xbox’s level of performance. Overall real world performance is something like a 300MHz Pentium 2, only with much, much swankier graphics.

    Edit: Just booted up Linux (Knoppix 7.0) on my Pentium 4 machine and it works perfectly fine.


    - - - Updated - - -

    I have 100% fact proof. I just saw it with my own eyes. I guess the pcs of the people you are referring to had old graphic cards. And my machine has only 256MB RAM and a geforce 6200.

    Serious accusation here: troll.

    Either that or someone unaware of the difference between a very highly bloated linux distro such as linux and a nice efficient barebones install such as Puppy, Knoppix or a custom buildroot setup.
    I've also booted uClinux (modified linux kernel with a software MMU) on a nintendo DS which is far far lower performance than the OP's machine and partially crippled with lack of RAM and having to software emulate a heavily used piece of hardware (seriously, the MMU is one of the most frequently utilised pieces of hardware in a modern computer).

    Heard of the intel galileo? 400MHz intel pentium, boots linux.
    I've used linux running on a gumsticks overo fire.

    Linux first released on machines with less than 4mb of RAM.
