Im new at this forum and just started 2-3 weeks ago to learn bioinformatic, I'm biology.
First thanks to all for all he tutorials has provide for people like me to introduce themselfs in this interesting world :) even many times I crash my head and get desperate.
My source are fastq and bam files around 20-26 gb, which generate me lot headaches when I work with a 3gb ram old dell laptop....At the moment I get stock at alignment because ou of memory, when i get the unmmaped sequence to retrive possible viral load..I can work only with the 20 gb file if i use the 26gb i get "core dumped" ;_; So I have decide to buy a stationary pc.
I cant spend so much money atm so I need something usefull and cheap, I thought about AMD FM 8350 8x, a cheap mainboard like Asrock 980DE3/U3S3 and 32 gb ram. Would be this enough? or I must go for intel?
I use mainly Linux.
Whatever advice will be welcome! :))) Thanks!
sorry for my bad grammatic (spanish lady)
