SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Live encoding multiple Flash streams
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, HDD (sata)
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US
PARTS PREFERENCES: Doesn't matter, 64bit pci-x slot would be a plus though.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: no, 3d video isn't important
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1280x1024
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This will be used to encode ~4 streams of video live.... nothing else. Doesn't need to be flashy. A rack mount case would be a big plus, but something I can change later if needed.
For me at its $140 price, if i am looking for a no compromise gaming board i'd look at the similarly priced Biostar TA890FXE (16/16 instead of the former's 8/8 for CF) Else for a non gaming /encoder it's just not worth it at all
1055t cpu, asus M4A89GTD mobo, 4gb ram, AC64 cooler.... It all got here today minus the case (rack mount case will be here next week). I wanted to get it all going today so I can just plop it into the case and mount it in the rack.
It's running 100% solid @~3.4ghz. Cost was under $600 shipped including the rack mount case & PS!
