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 and has HDMI too but I could not find the comparison of the same processor with different MotherBoards.
I want to know:
- Which MotherBoard gives better performance with Q9650: DQ45CB OR DG45ID?
- Does DG45ID support vpro ?
- If vPro is all about remote control, I perhaps dont need it. I am support professional with Microsoft and want to deploy a virtual enviroment on Hyper-V on a 2008 machine for my host test enviroment. My interest in DG45ID grew because it supports HDMI but I am mainly concerned about performance otherwise. Please help. I am not a Hardware guy so i btw dont understand all this. Will really appreciate your help!
Please let me know so that I may make the purchase accordingly.
Thanks for your help and time!
