new build..opinions and help - Page 2

You're probably right, but that will likely be at the cost of some performance.

However, a well-built and tuned (overclocked) PC will run just fine 24/7, even with a continual load on the CPU.. (folding anyone?).

The extra stability of the workstation board isn't that dramatic that it becomes a must-have item.

Just settle for a good, proven mobo with the P35 chipset, and you'll be fine.

What I *would* invest in is a quality UPS... clean power is essential for this kind of rig.

APC is one of the best UPS makers Don't buy one until you build the system and test how much power it draws though.

I couldn't agree more.

..good idea. I will be sure to make them aware of the importance of a good UPS..remote connections can be trouble some with out back up power anyhow!
