I am working in video game level design so i require a powerful workstation that is capable of both calculating a lot of data fast (to create my work) and to smoothly run the latest video games (to test my work).
So I have been looking at dual CPU and GPU systems. The problem was finding a motherboard that would support both of these. I need support for 2 Socket 940 processors with 1000MhZ FSB HyperTransport, support for SLI via PCI-e 16X, at least 8GB of DDR 400 Ram for future upgrading and several SATA ports.
The only motherboard I found that follows these characteristics is a SuperMicro H8DCi
. The problem is that I have never heard of a "SuperMicro" brand before, nor did I find this MoBo on NVidia site in the list of SLI supported MoBos, even though it clearly states in this SuperMicro's MoBo's characteristics that it does have SLI support.
So I thought of asking you guys here. Do you know of this brand? Is it reliable? Does this card really have all the characteristics listed above? Is it worth the money?
Thank You in advance.
