Abit SG-80DC LGA775 motherboard
For me, an ABIT Motherboard delivers exceptional value with their products. I have used ABIT
motherboards for some of my servers for a number of years. When the cost for a "Name brand"
server is prohibitive for the new or small business owner for the everyday
use that the power of a dual processor motherboard delivers.
I currently have
an ABIT dual processor as my main server, it is running two PIII 1Ghz
processors. These are not XEON processors just the regular desktop processors.
The ABIT dual processor motherboard has other features built in that you would
have to pay extra for on other dual processor motherboards.
One of the features that I feel is exceptional is the built
in RAID array controller. It has the High Point RAID array controller built into
the motherboard, this controller as a stand alone card would cost more that the
motherboard. It also was one of the first motherboards to incorporate the USB
2.0 standard, even my two year old lap top doesn't have that!
This Abit SG-80DC LGA775 motherboard is not a dual processor board but with
a Core 2 Duo or Quad processor and Hyper-Threading
capability it would be considered as fast as a dual processor mother board, with
the SATA drive raid, 2 GB memory capacity, and built in graphics I would
consider this board for a replacement for my main server. As a small business
owner I think that this motherboard would serve me just as well as a Xeon
processor motherboard at half the price.
