Since you are now on the right track, i will say definitely if you have the options to get a server board with the Xeon CPU, it is best to go for the server board rather a desktop board with Quad Core CPU for virtualisation.
Now regarding the compatibility for the board S5000VSA:
You can check it from the website below:
Dont forget before buying the components, it is best to get compatible compatible hardware so that there is no issues in the future.
Hope this answers your question.
Thnaks for the reply.
I verified the compatibility, both are compatible and support virtualization.
Now, moving a step closure, i have issues with availablity and cost-benefit ratio:
I have three variants of Processor:
E5405: 2 GHz, INR 11000
E5410: 2.3 GHz, INR 15000
E5420: 2.5 GHz, INR 19000
I have 2 Variants of the motherboard:
S5000VSA wih support for 8 GB RAM and S5000VSA with support for 16 GB RAM. Price difference is almost 4K in my currency.
1. Core 2 Quad Q9550 and DQ45CB are 3 GHz clock Frwq with 800 MHz RAM where as Xeon supports just 677 Mhz RAM and 2.3/2.5 GHz clock. Both support virtualization. Would Xeon be able to deliver better performance?
2. Should I go for 8 GB Boad with 2.5 GHz CPU or 16 GB Board with ONE 2.3 GHz CPU? OR should I go for TWO 2.0 GHz processors with 8 GB Board? Which will deliver more performance in the same cost? I have a budget limitation of 30 K.
I highly apreciate your time and support in this regard,
Thank you very much!
