Building a server?

There are plenty of server boards that will run Xeon chips over 3GHz. Find a listing of neweggs server mobos here.

It's possible, just costs a lot...... Do a google search, I did and a lot of stuff popped up.

Um..... well its meant for a SERVER.

If youre considering using duals for a personal PC- DONT.

No offense, but it just looks to me like youre looking to drop a bunch of money into a buncha crap you dont even understand or need.

If you want to make a top of the line PC with specs that are realistic- you can get one WITH a nice LCD monitor, keyboard and mouse for that amount of money.

either dual or single cpu i would be running 3 monitors for video editing. I can deal with 2 but i can do 3 so i might as well. It just makes things alot easier for me and uncluttered space to work in premiere and photoshop.

1 single processor can handle it. If you have a lot of money, get a 3.2 HT. But if not just go with the AMD 64 bit.

Considered a G5? Im by no means a Mac guy at all... but theyre massively powerful machines, and great for VE. And if you got that kinda cash- consider it.

Otherwise- dont go dual. I would vote for an AMD FX-53 with a couple gigs of ram (I seriously doubt you could utilize over 2 gigs). What kinda VE are we talkin about? Like- length and exportation type? Cos unless youre doing stuff at extremely high exportation properties over an hour you wont use 3 gigs of ram.

@Monster00 - I take it youre referring to the P4 3.2EE w/ HT?

Shrapnill, no im not. Thats like 900 dollars. If he wants, i mean a 3.2 HT. not extreme. But i mean if he wanted to get a dual xeon, the mobo and the XEon processors would be over 900 dollars right there... with 1 MB of L2 cache.. The xeon 3.2 processors alone are 805 dollars. But i mean he can also go with the 3.4 with no HT for like 500 dollars.
