This review is from: JetWay JATOM-GM1-330-LF Intel Atom 330 Intel 945GC Flex ATX Motherboard/CPU Combo
Pros: Installed ESXi 4.0 on it 4GB cheapo Rendition RAM. Running a 2008 DC VM and a 2003 web/firewall VM for the house. No issues. Very happy with that level of performance. Tried getting by with only 2GB of RAM wasn't enough ;). PCIe slots came in handy.
Cons: Note there is no Intel Virtualization so running 64-bit VMs is not going to happen. Onboard NIC not recognized by ESXi which I kinda knew so bought 2 used Intel desktop GB NICs elsewhere pretty cheap.
Other Thoughts: A 64-bit OS on the bare metal runs fine, just no 64 bit VMs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Installed easily, no bugs.
Cons: none yet.
Other Thoughts: Ordered this for my wife's new PC with the triple G-Skill blue DIMMs. I let her install it and load it with help of course. We just finished a weekend of hard playing Unreal Tournament 3 Black for free on Steam and not one single problem. The only thing we had to do as mentioned was to go set the RAM up to recognize it at 1333.READ FULL REVIEW
