I'm planning to build a AMD Quadcore box with following config;
CPU - AMD PHENOM II X4 940
RAM - DDRII 800 CL4 dual channel, >8G
The box will be used for testing server consolidation running either Xen/Vserver/OpenVZ as virtualization software. There will be >10 servers running on the box.
Operation System - host and guests Linux, Debian or Ubuntu
Architecture - 64bits
Servers to be build - mail and web servers, CRM and PSPP(for statistical computing)
Server installation and fine tuning - via ssh remotely
No graphic editing nor gaming will be required. Onboard vedio card is of minor important. I can re-use an old graphic card. Windows server may be tested only if required providing advice to customers running Windows server. The same will be used for reference only.
Actually an AMD dualcore CPU can satisfy my application. But I have AMD dualcore boxes here. I expect trying AMD Quadcore CPU instead of building a new PC with the major components of yesterday.
Please recommend me an economic motherboard for my use. TIA
