I plan to purchase a Xeon E3-1245 of LGA1155 Socket, along with the Asus P8Z68-V PRO(Z68 Chipset). 2gb DDR3 Ram. I also plan to utilise the SLI feature of the motherboard. My work is 3d animation rendering based..
My question is whether the this motherboard will support the above processor and its features like (vpro,vt-d etc) and vice-versa. I am also aware that this processor only support 1 pci x16 slot, so will the sli feature work or not ? If no then pls recomend me a approrite motherboard for this processor considering my extensive work of 3d rendering and programming.
I confirm the Intel(R) Xeon(TM) Processor E3-1245 is not an officially supported one on the Asus* P8Z68-V; see the following URL, from Asus:
