I'm planning on building a desktop from scratch and using FreeBSD as the exclusive OS. I have moderate Linux experience, but next to zero BSD experience. I figure that because I get to choose all the hardware, I might as well pick stuff that will work well with minimal configuration. With that in mind: Generally: Anything to look out for when buying hardware in general? Is there a comprehensive list of supported hardware? Are some companies generally better than others? CPU: Any x86_64 right? GPU: In Linux Intel GMA was well supported with open drivers. Is this true for BSD too? Are there any discrete cards with good open drivers, or even quality closed ones? Motherboard: Anything to look out for? Wireless: Are some companies guaranteed, or do I have to go model by model? Any particular models to avoid/get? Anything else? Thank you, I'm looking forward to having a rocking Unix box soon!
