I'm about to buy a Xeon W3680 CPU. Only need a single-physical-CPU\nsystem.\n\nThree years ago I made the mistake of buying a Xeon 5160 and mating it\nto a Gigabyte\nGA-7VCSV-RH board that had nothing more than a 1x PCIe slot for\nvideo. Just try FINDING\nsuch a card. Anyway ...\n\nWhat is the best board I can buy for modest (but with aspirations)\nvideo needs (3D a plus)\nand expansion with 16x PCIe slots or whatever's more modern.\nAlso I want to be able to fit this into my ATX case which is this\nmassive Startech:\n[URL]http://us.startech.com/product/ATXFULL635V-[/URL]\n\n.... even if the board is a CEB rather than ATX.\n\nWhat's your recommendation for the perfect board for the W3680?\nI plan to dual-boot RHEL5 and Windows 7 64-bit edition. Will be\ncompiling C programs on the\nLinux side while doing more multimedia-based stuff and editing on the\nWindows 7 side.
