Hey guys. I am wondering the possibilities of building a Dual AMD CPU system with SLI or Crossfire primarily for development and design but on occasion I want to be able to play a awesome game like Crysis 2. What's the feasibility of such a system? any mobo suggestions?
It's certainly possible.
Something like a couple of Magny-Cours Opteron 6128s and a socket dual socket G34 ASUS KGPE-D16 motherboard.
Might not be the best solution to playing Crysis but it let you get in a game or two between work sessions.
Unless the software you are using has specific hardware requirements, like a dual core system, then a Skt 1366 i7-930 with 8 cores (4 physical and 4 logical) should meet your development needs as well as being a cheaper solution. Just something to think about...
