Mr. Stuky Posted August 18, 2010 Share Posted August 18, 2010 Sup Guys, Posted a while back about building a server for hosting game servers. I purchased http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16816152097 this beastie barebone and bought 6GB of Ram. My question is which CPU should I get? It has 2 Sockets for dual quad xeon but Im only going to buy one for now until later on ill buy its twin. Can I buy any LGA 1366? or does it have to be Nehalem? I was thinking of buying a Intel Xeon W3530 Bloomfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Server Processor but the server says its Nehalem ready, so I need a Intel Xeon X5550 Nehalem 2.66GHz LGA 1366? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
