I found very cheap and as the seller says "new" 2 x Intel Xeon X5647 (4 cores 2.9Gh)
I'm thinking about building workstation for 3D, video and picture editing.
Later I'm hoping to add Nvidia Quadro 4000 video card for really boosting max poly count in 3D max viewport.
For now I'm hoping to use it as a render node connected via lan to my laptop.
I'm not a gamer.
I'm also not so good at mobo specs
Please advise witch is better mob. Price is almost the same in my country.
P.S. That Xeon X5647 is very interesting, i can't find them in any mobo compatibility list (well they say that they support xeon 5600 series, but when i look at all compatible Xeons, particularly these don't show up on the list.
I'm afraid that I will be left with mobo and 2 xeons that are incompatible with each other. Say your opinion if u know these Xeons.
Yes, tray only means that they would have been seen most of the time in a complete system like the Dell or an HP server but as they are sold in tray of a bunch of processors. They have the same quality as our normal Intel® Xeon® processors.
If you like Supermicro go with them as both boards are both using our chipsets.
