well it's not quite gaming on linux but it is most certainly gaming and linux. If this works well this will be the cheapest high end gaming computer availible at 600. I think i might get one after the second chistmas.

So is an Xbox (1). Or a standard dual-boot PC, for that matter.

If this works well this will be the cheapest high end gaming computer availible at 600.

Or you could get an Xbox 360 ($299) for gaming and a cheap Linux PC ($199 or, if second-hand, essentially free), both of which perform their tasks more ably than the PS3 does.
