Hi.. I have a bit of experience with linux/bsd but never really tried it with gaming.

I usually run eve with 5 or more clients active on windows 7. And I was wondering if for example Ubuntu could accomplish the same while still being playable+stable. If its a good alternative I might step away from windows.. as eve is pretty much the only game I play anyway.

My current gaming rig has a intel e8500 c2d, 8gb ram and a ati 4870 gpu. I'll probably upgrade it soon. Anybody have experience running a linux distro on similar hardware and running 5+ accounts without many issues?

My laptop is hardly top notch (Core Duo2/3GB Ram/256MB 8400GS) and I can run 3 clients without too many issues, albeit slightly jerky Smile. I found heat more of an issue than speed so had to mess with cpufreqd and nvidia-settings to find a stable running system, *and* a stable X.

Hmm 3 clients is decent for your specs. And heat isn't that much of a issue when it comes to desktops (or at least not when you got decent cooling).
