Default Re: Problem using 3 card system in a mixture of PCI-x and PCI slots

Here's a dual processor board that has 3 PCI-x slots.
I'm just fishing for tips at the moment, but is there any obvious reason it wouldn't work with HD3 PCI?

Thanks.

Apart from the fact that I can't find it for sale anywhere...(!)

If you can find it, it looks like it would work.

When I was shopping, I was specifically looking for an i7 compatible board with triple channel memory.

Are there any specific advantages with an i7 board versus a dual xeon board?
Other than price differential: the dual boards seem to be more expensive, and you have to (of course) buy 2 CPUs...

Price is a big factor. Others factors are heat, cooling, power consumption, noise, upgrade path, and overclocking ability (not a huge factor for me). I also think the Xeon requires more expensive ECC registered RAM.

Maybe some more experienced builders will chime in with some more information for you.

>>>
I already knew from ploughing thru Newegg's listings for LGA Socket 1366 boards that there is no ATX form factor with 3 adjacent PCI-x slots, and have now verified the same unfortunate state of affairs for 3 adjacent PCI slots.
<<<

Adjacent PCI slots are no longer required. I have a solution. Contact me if interested.

Recently, I think some of the plug-in abbreviations were changed to make the plug-in easier to identify. I was using minigrand as well.
