Hi guy, maybe i will have some rest money for XEON!! :-)
So i need help about mobo.
I will buy only one XEON and after some years i will buy second, so i need that this mobo (for 2 XEONs)can work with one XEON.

What sugges you for board?

Thanks

Look for a Tyan S2668AN E7505 there could be a better one by now though.
btw. You may want to post this in the tech section instead

this thread doesn't really belong to the Softimage forums, since SI doesn't even get mentioned at all, I moved it for you in the place where it belongs and where you are likely to get the best feedback.

if asking what videocard works best in a specific application is ok (we know each one has its own favorites list) a motherboard hardly relates sorry :)

I own a SuperMicro Board and have not had a problem with it. I am satisfied with the performance, reliabilty , and features. even the small ones like hot keys to start up the machine.

I built a dual 2.8 system with the Tyan Tiger board. Very stable, fast, no problems. Now I only have to figure out a way to make those darn Xeon coolers quieter...

I got a Iwill DPI533 motherboard for my dual 3gig Xeon.
I know a few other boys on the softimage mailing list that have the exact same setup.

vrf : Yeah i learnt my lession with noisey xeon fans on my last one. i got antec stealth fans replacing them. Got a crap load of fans in my box all up and it's damn near silent compared to my last dual xeon. :)

X5DAE Supermicro here.

Do note that some dual xeon motherboards with the e7505 chipset allow you to use unbuffered PC2100 DDR.

As one can imagine this allows for less expensive ram to be used.

GregHess: and what about Asus PC-DL with 875P ?

Since its a Xeon, I'd err more on the side of proven stability then performance.
