I think I’ve done all the testing that needed to be done at this point.  I believe that my existing AMD Athlon X2-3800+ will make a suitable VMWare ESXi server for Windows Server 2003 and Fedora Core 6 Linux running along side eachother.  Should be a good upgrade over the existing Dell P4 1.5Ghz system that currently runs Windows Server 2003 native with Fedora Core 6 as a VM guest through VMWare Server 1.

For my main system, I’ll be moving up to an Intel Core i7 920, 6 gigs of RAM and a shiney new BFG GTX 260 OCX video card.  The video card is a monster both in size and power consumption but hey, it’s nice to reward yourself every once in a while.

I’ll post more details about the new computer, the ESXi migration and pictures when I get the new hardware.
