I am going to build a new server! (I'm excited) below is my shopping list, this
all started with a desire to have a Raid FreeBSD system. RAID led me to 3Ware,
current offerings from 3Ware were of *only* the 64 Bit PCI flavor, my current MB
didn't have it [Cheep SIS with (1) Athlon XP2400+ with WD PATA IDE 40GB] So I
looked for mainboards that had a 66Mhz 64bit PCI slot, from 3Ware's hardware
compatibility list. Found a good one I hope with the Gigabyte board. So now I'm
thinking instead of FreeBSD 5.3 or 5.4 to go with the FreeBSD-AMD64 version.
Comments welcome, anyone see any issues?
Anyone else have a Gigabyte board with (GA-7A8DW AMD 8111/8131)
Chipset running AMD-64?
Also my video card will be a Geforce 4 Ti 4200 4x AGP, I like to run X so
I can see high res real time logs...
