Please help me to make the best final decision..

This question is about the Z9PE-D8 WS and Z9PE-D16 motherboards and I need urgently decide which motherboard should I buy.

For people that doesn't know these motherboards, I can tell you that both has similar features (dual

socket lga 2011), but has two main differences for me.

1. Z9PE-D8 WS supports MAX. 64GB DDR3 UDIMM and 256GB DDR3 ECC (RDIMM) [[32GBxSocket and 128GBxSocket]] and supports Crossfire and SLI (multiple GPU's), integrated sound.

2. Z9PE-D16 supports MAX. 128GB DDR3 UDIMM and 512GB DDR3 ECC (RDIMM) [[64GBxSocket and 256GBxSocket]] and only ONE (1) GPU and no has integrated sound.

As you can see, with the Z9PE-D8 WS you sacrifice memory by GPU's and with the Z9PE-D16 you sacrifice GPU's by memory...

¿What do you recomend?

  1. It is really not what I recommend rather what do you need, do you need more ram or do you need more than one GPU?
  2. ¿What's the best option for performance in all ways?
  3. Depends on what you are using it for!

    This idea is a multi-purpose server. Both!, graphics and processing................
  7. As a server then it is the workstations/network computers that need the graphics power.
