Well, you know, that mobo can handle xeons right ? They are superior and pure crunching power. And, what about scsi? WAY faster. Think bout getting like some 15k 72 GB scsi's, like 3 for raid 5. And kingston makes HyperX for FB-Dimm, s OR might be stuck with getting Qimonda, Samsung, or Infineon.
And, for mobo, there is Tyan, and Supermicro I beleive. true server class and quality boards.

like i said i am not done picking out the gear as for scsi you right there will be a few drive in to comp
also for ram i was looking at the Crucial 4096MB PC5400 DDR2 FB-DIMM Memory
i am doing alot of research on this i am trying to make the ultimate gaming rig even tho its a server board but its one hell of a gaming one as well


no i am very very poor and i had to save my pennies for this lmao

i wonder if i can get away with 16gb of ram you ask what for well i can say this just to have it



nvidia needs to make a dual gpu 280 so i can tri sli them lol wow 6gb of graphics that would be insane

You'd think people would have better things to spend their money on certainly not in this case, although bragging rights generally comes at a price. Enjoy the new powerplant of a pc you're gonna build can't wait to see pics of this beast.

Personally this won't be the best gaming rig :)

While it will be one hell of a rig I'm sure systems of MUCH lower price denominations can perform just as well.
