The chipset determines the maximum FSB. A motherboard that supports a 1066 Mhz FSB or faster will support all lower FSBs.
E5xxx/E7xxx series doesn't support virtualization. You'll need to step up to the E8400 for virtualization support. X2 7750 Kuma does have virtualization support.
For one VM, it doesn't matter, particularly if using VMware.
Virtualization technology makes a big difference when it comes to VMs... except that gain normally comes from having two or more VMs... look on the bight side, you can run a 64bit guest on a 32 bit host
Alright. Thanks for all the replys. I think I'm actually going with the Phenom II x3 720.
More cores the merrier... I thinkz they still have the 9600 BE for the same price...
The PII x3 OCs much higher and I game quite a bit but also a little bit of multi-core apps. Its a lot more powerful when I'll be using fewer, higher clocked cores.
