    junaidlive

      Hello everyone,

       

      I am planning to build up a workstation for a lab setup at my home as my previous intel board DG33FB got screwed up and I am planning to invest in a workstation class motherboard and a Xeon processor.

       

      I will be running a lot of virtual machines in my lab.

       

      Wanted the help of you guys:

       

      I am planning to by the S5520SC motherboard and a Xeon processor.

      I have yet not shortlisted any processor and am planning for something under 2.5Ghz.

       

      I wanted to know whether S5520SC is a suitable board for running virtualiation, which processor should go with and wanted to know which power supply and chassis should i use for this kind of setup.

       

      Waiting for your reply and guidance.

       

      Also can anyone on this forum point me to a reliable Intel Dealer here in Mumbai,India that can help me build my machine.

       

      Thanks,
