I need to build a test server for study that will run the following:
Windows Server 2012
Windows SQL Server 2012
Windows SharePoint Server 2013
** I am short on memory and I have read several threads where people have trouble expanding this MB to 16GB. I would also like to go to 24GB Ram for this setup as those are the minimum build specs on this platform.
I really may just try to go to 16GB if I can find the right memory and make it work.
I would like to salvage the CPU, it was expensive and is really a killer CPU for home/test use.
Has anyone upgraded to a newer/better motherboard that can handle more memory and still use these components?
I also may go to a fast SSD for the OS. I have not looked at these in a couple years and I imagine we have some nice affordable choices now.

So i noticed my videocard is getting outdated. Im playing the new "next-gen console" games on the pc and I have trouble playing the game like;
Low FPS / Errors that Quit the game / Shuddenly Exit Game / Etc.
Now i was thinking about to buy 1 new videocard that has Crossfire or Sli since this motherboard can have it. I can buy another later. then ill have a great video processing.
Price around €250,- per card. Is this a good choise? 2x Geforce GTX 760
I want to change my Motherboard and CPU together next year orso. (Maybe another extra 8gb ram).
Do you think this is a smart idea? And that the upcomming games that come in 5years will be playable on almost max settings?
