Virgin Builder wants to build a Dual Socket ? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Go for the Q6600, its best deal on the OEM versions, plus the ole' AMD quads are buggy.

I just found a pair of quad core 1.7Ghz Barcelonas on ebay for $320 buy it now. They're a little lacking in speed, but the price is very right.

You're going to want to go Intel all the way. The socket 771 Xeons come in Quad-Core versions... Personally when it comes to something like that my preference is to buy them prebuilt or at least barebones... Server systems are a lot more picky than the gaming systems you can throw together with a blind fold on. I work for a few schools and would never dream of building anything for them, though adding/changing parts is totally fair game...

That's just me though.

Good luck finding a dual socket 775 board that doesn't suck/cost an arm and a leg... Socket 771 is king of the dual processor... Though AMD does have some functioning quad socket boards... Pricey and not worth it of course... Just cool...

That is why I came here to see if it would be feasible for a first time builder with a good list of reliable components....

can you give me an example of a barebones case that would be ready for my build ?

Thats is exactly why i am coming here... I am aware of new egg but would like to see what set ups are recomended...

like this one maybe

x2 Quad-core Xeon E5440 $1460

x2 Quad-Core Xeon E5420 $ 730
or
x2 Quad-Core Xeon E5410 $ 550

Supermicro X7DWA-N mobo $ 469
crucial 4GB FB-DIMM DDR2-667 SDRAM $ 189
QuatroFX card $300
150GB Raptor Drive $ 170
Case antec titan 650 $ 140
xp 64 $150
power supply ??? $175 ??

2.3 Ghz e5410 $ 2143
2.5 Ghz e5420 $ 2341
2.8 GHz e5440 $ 3071

+ tax shipping and extras...

i can get the mac pro for $ 2599 + tax and shipping is free and this is with 2 * e5440 , a 320 gb hard drive at 7200, and only 2 gig of ram ... and it is ready made out of the box...

This seems hard to believe ??? am i missing something over pricing components etc...

i know i am not comparing apples to apples but in my eye they seem kind of close..???




ps there doesnt seem to be any bare bones that are specific to Server/ workstation application...
