I have this task of assembling a workstation, and I have been thinking of what model of system motherboard to use, and what Intel processor type to use and the type of media card to use
The workstation is going to be used to hold large amount of data, and stores some high resolution media contents including specialized software.
The workstation specification is for 32GB RAM, about 32TB disk space.
I have been recommended a gigabyte Z68AP-D3 motherboard....can this board be efficient for this kind of work? Will a single Intel Core i7 3.4 serve a good amount of speed and data use functions?
I have also been recommended an Nvidia Quadro card... will it serves a good purpose or are there better ones?
What other functionalities does the board carries that I need to know that will help me achieve an enhanced usage?
What level of RAID will be better to link the drives together or are there any other technology I can use to link the drives together efficiently and get better results?
Software/Hardware used: window 7 professional or enterprise edition
