Building new Fedora Machine

I am in the process of building up a new Fedora box. Can someone supply me with a link so I can find out if the mother board and processor I am planning to purchase is fully supported?

I am looking at the following:

ECS Black Series GF8200A
AM3 processor perhaps a Phenom or Athlon 64
Nvida GeForce 8200 chipset
DDR2 memory
Nvida GeForce 8200 video
IDT 92HD206 audio
Realtek RTL8111 LAN


Thanks,
Val

The Smolt database is a good place to start:
http://smolt.fedoraproject.org/

Although not all users rate their hardware for compatibility, it is an option there.

Hi,

If you add a couple of gigs in RAM at least that would be a nice beast (I really envy the chance of being able to assemble a machine soon: damn laptops!). I assume you'll eventually add an optical drive and perhaps a card reader. Just make sure those Nvidia graphics aren't the same model of those which melted themselves.
