Help me select the components for ESXi Tags: Processors Components Last response: June 25, 2012 10:37 AM in Components Share ammo8600 June 22, 2012 11:15:21 PM HI, I am willing to setup a server to run about 30 VMs of XP with 1G ram each. Please help me select the configuration. 1 Motherboard : INTEL S1200BTS Processor: Core i7 2600 3.40Ghz (8MB CACHE) Memory: 32GB Costs: Approx $900 2 Motherboard : INTEL S5520HC Processor: Xeon W3565 3.20Ghz (8MB CACHE - 4.80GT/s) X1(for now) Memory: 32GB Costs: Approx $1150 Please let me know what to select. I thing the second option is better because of the scalability of a second processor and Max 192GB ram. Let me know if you have other options for me.
