A few questions about my first server

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I might be able to get my hands on Xeon-E72870s and i was wondering where i could get a motherboard that supports two of them (as 2 is max supported configuration) and what kind of power supply, cooler and chassis i would need to get this up and running.

 

recommendations or links would be greatly appreciated

Pretty sure they start at about $500 if you can even find one. Don't know if those barebones systems include a board.

I assume a motherboard would be included, but what do you need the server for?

Well all I can say is you probably don't need a 20 core 40 thread machine for that. Also for some games you may want high single thread performance?

im probably mistaken but isnt single threaded performance for playing games as opposed to hosting a server
