Default Re: need help on hi-performance workstation

Coolmax is a crappy power supply, if you want a good dependable, stable computer buy a good power supply.
*READ FIRST* Updated Power supply guide

That motherboard supports
  • Intel Xeon X5500 Series (95W)
  • Intel Xeon E5500 Series (80W)
  • Intel Xeon L5500 Series (60W/38W) - Computer Hardware, Intel, Processors - Servers, LGA 1366, Nehalem

Nvidia cards will offer GPU Acceleration. The list below isn't quite complete because I know my GTX480's are compatible.

The standard recommended Memory Module is going to be DDR3 1333 MHz and in triple channel mode. You buy memory in sets of 3, as in, 3GB (3x1GB), 6GB (3x2GB), 12GB (3x4GB), 24GB (3x8GB) or you can double up and get 6GB (6x1GB), 12GB (6x2GB), 24GB (6x4GB), 48GB (6x8GB) - Computer Hardware, Memory, Server Memory, 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM, DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600)

Velcoraptors are a waste of space.

It looks like you think your going to have a good computer by buying the cheapest possible parts so long as you have a dual cpu system. I don't care how many cpu's or cores that you have, my i7 2600K will be faster. If you want to get the best performance you have to balance the whole system out. A bunch of slow cpu's just means you can do a lot of work slowly. And your slowing it down more by using slow ram. The cpu and the memory controller are linked directly together, if you slow one down your slowly the other also. You would be best off just buying a really fast PC similar to mine but you still need about $2500 - $3000.
