I need to setup a MAya workstation that could also be used for gaming.
At first I though about getting the Athlon 64 and a PCI-Express card but I always liked the notion of having 2 CPU to do the job (I am a mac user) so I am leaning toward the Opterons. The video card would be a 6600 and I would use 1 to 1,5 gig or RAM.
Unfortunatly, I cant find any opteron board with PCI-Express card, its either integrated video or AGP. Anyone know any?
Idealy, it should also have , SATA, FW, integrated network card and more than 4 ram slots and be availlable in Canada. RAID-0 is a plus but not very important.
While looking at some online store, I couldnt find any board for AMD with PCI-Express, only intel. Anyone know any? I really want a computer with PCI-E card and I dont really have a good history with Intel…
