Processor for a PC (not a server) from AMD or Intel.

  1. Hello, I need to know if there is a 64 bit processer/motherboard that I could
    use in a PC to set up a learning lab using Exchange 2003 and Windows 2003
    server software that is 32 and 64 bit compatible for these applications?

  2. Navigate to any of the motherboard manufacturers' websites and choose a
    64-bit capable mobo and the supported 64-bit cpu. I would suggest an
    Opteron or Xeon cpu given that you want to run server systems but there is
    no reason why an AMD 64 or Intel processor with the 64-bit extensions would
    not also work.

    Such boards are made by the likes of Asus, MSI, etc.

    Opteron CPU are fantastic and so are Tyan motherboards. They are a bit more
    expensive than the other boards but in my opinion well worth the extra quid
    and I don't care what charli mussel says..

  5. I wouldn't argue with you. Certainly not about Opteron, and Tyan have a good
    reputation. But then, I wouldn't deliberately belittle your name, either.
