I want to assemble new rack mount PC. I decided to use Socket LGA 1155 cpu because I am worried about 1366 socket that the next generation of cpus not supported this socket.(and I heard that socket 1366 not supported SSD Sata3 hard drives????)
I need some advices for choosing motherboard and cpu. My requirement for motherboard is:
DDR3 Ram Min 24GB support,
SATA 3 and Raid support,
simple on board graphic card(don't need graphic features).

i would take a look at the tyan server mb. then make one with one cpu and a lot of dimms slots for a lot of ram.
they use the intel server chipset that the big brother of the x79 chipset used on the 2011 cpu.

1) 1155 is the current mainstream platform, 1366 is the older high end platform
2) 1155 cpus are generally faster than their 1366 bretheren, and being the newer platform they support more of the newest interconnects
3) 2011 is the current high end platform, and easily beats 1366 across the board.
4) 24GB of ram is for tripple DDR setups. For Duel and Quad DDR you will want 16 or 32GB, both of which can easily be done with 8GB dimms on a 4 slot board, but going with a nicer 2011 board will allow you to purchase much cheaper/more stable 4GB sticks.

beyond that basic information it is hard to give any advice unless we know your budget, and also know your intended use.

1) LGA 775 for all desktop CPUs, with 771 for a short lived server run.
2) LGA 1156 replaced 775, while 1366 replaced 771 for servers and added a high end consumer market
3) LGA 1155 replaced 1156 for mainstream use, while 2011 replaced 1366 for servers and high end

4) Intel has already announced that the next gen of CPUs (Haswell and Broadwell) will not be 1155 compatible, and many suspect that they will not work with 2011 either.

I need mother board model suggestion with lowest budget and satisfy my requirements.I am confused that which brand is better and which model.
All 1155 motherboards support Xeon cpus??Xeon or Core I7 which is better for me?
