I am a little out of touch with motherboards, RAM and CPUs these days. I could do with some advice on what to buy and where from for the best price.
I am looking to run a operating system virtulization product which happens to be called VirtualIron, XenServer and Vmware. But that's info most people not be concerned about.
My requirements, are to get as much 'resource' for my money.
For example, if money was no object I might like to buy a QUAD core Intel with 16Gb of Ram. However I suspect it would be cheaper to but 3 motherboards each with 4Gb of RAM on each.
So can someone help and recommend a motherboard, CPU and RAM combination that is good value. It needs to be 64-bit CPU and a decent motherboard that can take at least 4Gb of RAM.
Finally these things don't need to be pretty, or even housed in a post case. I just need a lab setup arrangement.
