Hey Nvidida has just released their pci xpress graphics card. so it is now possible to use one of the tyan mother boards with pci xpress and quad opteron Cpus for a toaster system. I would love for someone to test one of these with a raid core serial ata raid

Except nVidia doesn't actually make "cards", beyond reference ones that other companies then modify and make. According to the article on their website, we're looking at mid-year for that.

Everyone here knows that of all people...you would have the jingle to get one of those systems...:D

We've all heard that you only run dual Xeon compys just for your renderfarm.;)

render farm ??? lol i wish i had one ! i was jsut mentioning hopeing some one else would try it first so if our production company decides to build another toaster this year we could compare specs. but its just been announced that intel will be releasing 64 bit xeon chips in quarter 2 04
