Does anyone know a dual socket motherboard that can support xeon E5 and a quadro graphic card?

I find plenty that can support the cpu but I cant find any that can support a high end gpu.

In what way is the motherboard not being able to support the Quadro 4000?

PCI Express version?

Any of the current workstation motherboards with PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots will have no problem supporting a PCI-Express 2.0 Quadro 4000.

That's what I was thinking but every time I would research a board I would get a different answer. For instance when I researched the Asus Z9PE-D8 on New Egg, the reviews were that they actually did not support high end cards. When I looked up Supermicro boards and spoken to their customer service, they told me that they only use their special made gpu.

Don't equate GeForce GTX 6XX gaming cards with a Quadro 4000.

The customers on Newegg are complaining mostly about the GeForce GTX 690's compatibility with the ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS.

I didn't see any of them complaining about workstation graphics cards.

Two customers used a Quadro 5000 and another used a Quadro 6000 with that motherboard.

It looks like ASUS is still trying to work the resource allocation bugs out of their motherboard's BIOS.

Of course Supermicro will try to get you to buy one of their own cards.

Thank you,

I'm thinking about going with the ASUS Z9PE-D16 since there really isn't a huge difference between that and the Asus Z9PE-D8.

Another question. Since I'm getting the ASUS Z9PE-D16, would there be an ideal case for it or would any server case work? Will i need a special chasis?
Also I noticed people on forums recommending getting a psu with 1200W, mine is 1000w. I will be using both CPU's, e52540, quadro, two ssds, 64 gb of ram, and external hard drive.

Rackmount or pedestal?

You should be able to find an EATX form factor pedestal chassis for that motherboard.

I don't see an e52540 in the CPU support list for the ASUS Z9PE-D16. There is an Intel Xeon E5-2640 in the support list though.

How many memory modules and what type are they?

How many internal hard disk drives, if any?

Is there going to be any optical drive?

I know that 1200 Watts for a power supply is excessive and not necessary based on the components you've listed so far.

What is the brand and model of your 1000 Watt power supply unit?

Sorry, I meant the E52640. I have two 256 SSD hard drives and one 2 TB external drive. I have 8 SDRAM with 8 gigs at the speed of 1600. There is one optical disc but its just a DVD burner. My 1000W psu is the CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-1000HX.

That CMPSU-1000HX is way more than enough to power that system configuration.

Thanks. I was just unclear on some things when I was reading other forums. Now I have a better sense on how to build this system.
