Mobo and RAM

Specs: Vista, AMD 955

I have a Phenom II X4 955 box running 8G RAM. Now I'm planning building a Phenom II X6 box running 16G RAM. But the 4G module/stick is very expensive, not easy to find. However most mobo can take max 4 sticks. I can't find mobo board on market except server taking 8 sticks. Any advice? TIA

Why do you feel you need 16GB RAM?

Hi jam,

It is a good question.

I have a Phenom II X4 955 box here running 8G RAM. Therefore I expect adding more RAM on the new box. Besides I will use the new box as virtual machine running >30 guests (VM) on it.

Now the old box Phenom II X4 955 is also a Virtual Machine running >15 guests(VM) on it, Linux/Windows. I have no idea if all guests are running at the same time whether RAM will be sufficient?

A folk on another forum suggested me turning to Intel i7 930
