    platform for penryn based xeons

    just a quick question: AFAIK the penryn based xeons will require a new mainboard. Is that correct? Or will they be drop-in compatible with current 53xx based xeons mainboards?

    cannot install XP??

    ok, a friend of mine bought an ACER 5683 WLMi Notebook, which comes with Vista Home Premium by default. He wants to have XP installed on the machine, though (i couldn't care less, so please don't get into a vista/XP fight). Now the problem is, I cannot make the computer boot from his XP CD...

    It's Official - Barcelona to Debut in August!

    No clue who got it wrong. maybe it was xbits'. Let's just hope they ramp up the clock-speed quickly.

    fist time dual socket build - any advice welcome

    Thanks for the input, Slartibartfast. SUpermicro boards are pretty much impossible to get in Austria - I've been looking for one before, Tyan was the second choice for me. Are ASUS boards considered to be a viable alternative, or is their reputation in the server space not as good? Will post...

    fist time dual socket build - any advice welcome

    Hi all, I am currently in the process of speccing out my first dual-socket built. That being said - I'd really like to hear what you guys think about it, as I do not have any experience whatsoever when it comes to server/workstation-class components. There will be a total of three machines...
