    Need help to choose a right hardware for lab

    milindn

      Hello Everyone,

       

      I am trying to build an entry level server system at lower cost to host my VMWare based labs. What I need is two processors support and memory support upto 32GB. The motherboard should be capable of supporting Intel VT.  I dont want to invest more in it so I am wondering if someone of you can walk me through right choice for a virtual lab environment. Particulary, to reduce cost I am looking for a board which should not require ECC memory compulsorily. Any walk through or a recommended configuration would be greatly appreciated. I am open for a workstation configuration as well.

       

      Thanks in advance.
