Please help me to make the best final decision.. Tags: Asus DDR3 Motherboards GPUs Last response: July 26, 2012 6:17 PM in Motherboards Share crishk2012 July 26, 2012 5:23:30 AM 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?
