I am looking to build a testing server to run Debian based on either Intel i7-3770 or AMD FX-8350. The only important things is support for 32 GB Ram and 1TB 7200 HD, Gigabit Network. Audio, video, ports, lights, etc. are not important - this is not for gaming, it is for a headless test server. For production we use actual Xeon servers.
My budget is just under $1000.
Every time I google a motherboard all I get is the problems people have experienced and makes me worry of compatibility.
Anyone has an actual setup I can copy? The most important thing is Debian compatibility.
