Thanks for the prompt response.
After further research, I'm more inclined to go with this board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813121518
as thats the board I found information about the use of VMWARE ESXi on it. And its also in my price range. The memory details are as follows
Max Memory Size 192 GB
Types of Memory DDR3 ECC UDIMM, RDIMM
# of Memory Channels 6
# of DIMMS 12
ECC Memory Supported? true
So does that mean than it only works with ECC memory or not?
Also, it says that the max memory standard is 1333MHz. Now excuse my noob question, but does that mean it won't work with 1600MHz memory? or does it mean that the memory will not be running at 1600MHz, and only at 1333MHz?
