Recommendation needed for mainboard with ECC memory and E8400 CPU support.
Posted on 2009-02-11
I want to build a new pc 4GB RAM, with support for at least 8GB for futureproofing.
For stability reasons ECC support is a must as is DDR2 of min 800Mhz (native).
PCIE v2 x16 (prefer 2)
Min 6 SATA II ports that are hotpluggable.
Price of up to AUD$200 is favourable, but would consider higher if I have to.
I have literally googled for hours and can find some excellent boards from Gigabyte and others, but not have ECC support with my above requirements. Most use Xeon or Opteron CPU's.
Can anyone recommend a mainboard with the above criteria? Or do I have to bite the bullet and go for a server board? :-/
