Will Setup a Linux server.

Hello Group,

I have found a deal for motherboard and cpu however, since I'm more in software development more so I need some advice.
I will appreciate it if sombody help me to make a decision.

My concern is setup a Linux server (CentOS):

1)Motherboard:  ASUS p5gc-mx/1333
2)CPU:Intel core 2 Duo Processor E6750

Is this a good set or there are better thing?

Any comment is appreciated.

That sounds fine to me. I'm also more developer than hardware geek, but I've found Linux runs fine on most old hardware, and great on modern hardware. Unless you're buying something bleeding-edge, it's a safe bet it'll be fine.

To be absolutely certain, you could consult the Linux Hardware Compatability HOWTO: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Hardware-HOWTO/
I've also found another Hardware Compatability List that may be useful: http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/ 

This list appears to has much more hardware listed. It also looks more up-to-date.  I couldn't find your specific hardware in either list, but I did find similar ASUS boards, and a close Core 2 Duo processor.

I would be very surprised if the specific hardware you listed wasn't supported.
