This is where I planned the hardware to purchase for my new workstation 'tact'. I have my new computer now! I'm running Debian Stretch on it. It's super cool. I've been keeping the below up-to-date as I make a few adjustments. E.g. since the initial purchase I added an M.2 drive (and new monitors!)

Wish list

Some potential upgrades or features of my next workstation.

Dual 4K monitors
