View Full Version : Workstation upgrading issues

01-06-2009, 06:12 AM
I need to upgrade my current workstation because it's not powerful enough to meet my needs, and its having too many issues. I'm looking for an 8 core processing system and a motherboard that will support it.
My current mother board randomly restarts forcing me to save a lot, worst thing that happens is my 3ds max file gets corrupted. I replaced the ram but it only managed to prolong the amount of time before it restarts. Rendering is always a hassle.

my current system is:

2.8GHz Core 2 Quad - LGA 775 - 1333 FSB
8GB DDR3 1333
high end gaming card ( I can't afford a Quadro)
750 Watt Power supply
2x 500GB SATA Hard drives

I only want to upgrade the motherboard and CPU if possible.
any suggestions?
