I want to purchase Intel Q9650 but I am confused about compatible MotherBoard. Your website recommends using it with Q45 Series Boards. (http://www.intel.com/performance/desktop/digoffice/index.htm?iid=perf_desktop_lhn+digital_office http://www.intel.com/performance/desktop/digoffice/index.htm?iid=perf_desktop_lhn+digital_office).
I chose DQ45CB but then I learnt that even DG45ID supports the same processor but I could not find the comparison of the same processor with different MotherBoards.
I want to know:
My interest in DG45ID grew because it supports HDMI but I am mainly concerned about performance otherwise. Please help.
Please let me know so that I may make the purchase accordingly.
The only two motherboards available here are DP45SG and DG4DI. Both of them dont support Virtualisation (I could not find it in the product specification )
Guess I'll rather buy Q8200 with DG45ID as its almost half the price of Q9650.
I wanted to but Q45 as it supports Virtualization.
Any suggestions will highly be apreciated. Are you from India?
