Selecting parts for DIY 3 - Avid NLE software
on Jul 18, 2005 at 7:15:32 pm

I am new to this NLE but want to build a system to get started in NLE. I have the below processors, BUT I need a motherboard

2 x Intel Xeon 3.6Ghz 1MB L2 800FSB:

Intel® Xeon™ Processor Intel® Xeon™ Processor

Processor type Intel Xeon
Part number RK80546KG1041M
Package 604-pin FC-PGA4/mPGA
Processor speed (GHz) 3.6
Bus speed (MHz) 800
L2 cache size (KB) 1024

I also have the system specs
Xaser III case, It has 11 fans total. 7 veriable speed in case 2 on cpus and 2 in the 680W power supply.

1 GB of Samsung 400 DDR2 ECC reg! - M393T6453FG0x2

Sony 16X DVD-RW/CD-CW, Toshiba 52X CD-RW, 160GB S-ATA Western Digital HDD, and a sony Floppy drive.

I am planning towards the FX1300 graphic card, so if anyone can help me in selecting the right motherboard for the processors named above, I would greatly appreciate it. I know videoguys suggested a supermicro board, but would that board be a fit for my processors with the part numbers

This is a quality, high-end motherboard from Supermicro that would fit your setup:

It only has 2 SATA ports, though, so you'll need a controller for anything else.

You also should get some more memory for that bad boy.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 3000 with graphic bus AGP 8X NOT PCI EXPRES
on Jul 22, 2005 at 10:34:24 pm

I just bought a graphic card NVIDIA Quadro FX 3000 which uses AGP 8X instead of the PCI EXPRESS graphic bus.
Can I use this card on the motherboard SuperMicro X6DAE-G2 that I am planning on buying for my NLE computer.
What is AGP 8X and the difference between AGP 8X and PCI EXPRESS. Where on the board will the card be inserted.

I did appreciated the answer to my earlier postings thanks
