is this X58 board compatible with my things?

so i found an Asus P6T motherboard for a reasonable price. i just have a few questions about it. 

 

can i use and overclock a Xeon X5650 with it?

can i use 6 sticks of 4GB ECC DDR3 with it?

can i run dual gpu's, specifically a GTX 690 and Radeon R9 290X?

Yes. ECC Registered RAM will not work though. You will need unbuffered/unregistered ECC RAM.

Nice catch! You do not need a SLI certified board to run a dual gpu card like the GTX 690. The P6T has the capability anyway, so you could run two 690 for a 4-way SLI for maximum bragging rights. Crossfire with the R9 290X also shouldn't be a problem, but when you go 3-way you are limited to PCIe 1.0, which defeats the whole use of Crossfire.

@Furryhead1987 i haben't bought it yet, and i'm glad i didn't. if i can't use my ECC ram then it's a no-go. i don't have any regular ddr3.

Regular DDR3 is not that expensive, why bother with ECC memory? Looking at your graphic card you use it for gaming (pls corrent me if I'm wrong) and ECC memory has no advantage in gaming. Seriously, if the price is good, go for it. The Asus P6T is a quite sought after board and the socket 1366 Xeons still go strong.

i already have a dual-socket machine (see my signature) and yea i don't need the new board that much. i assumed i could use the ecc ram but i can't. so end of story.

What model is your ram? Like I said unbuffered ECC will work.

IIRC if the mobo/CPU doesn't support ECC it just runs as normal RAM... I'd look into that, it should work.

Registered ram won't run period, ECC or not.

@Zando Bob unregistered/unbuffered ECC RAM will run in ECC with X58 and a Xeon, as documented many users.
