Cool - thanks. I had a cart full of parts ready when the registered/nonregistered question came up.matt_garman wrote:I use non-registered.
My main HTPC just flaked out (again), and I'm suspecting the MOBO now. It's an Asus P5E-VM HDMI that gets great reviews everywhere, but has never really been all that stable for me in the 3 years I've owned it.
So I'm dumping it. I'll swap my existing GA-MA74GM-S2 into the HTPC. And pick up the Biostar A760G-M2+, a 5050e, and some ECC ram for use in the server.
Mine is an unRAID server, and although the Biostar A760G-M2+ isn't mentioned anywhere in the "supported motherboards" list, since my current AMD 740 board is supported, I assume the Biostar's 760 will work. The "supported motherboards" lists includes a bunch of 740 and 780 boards.
Thanks again for all your testing and comments.
[EDIT] Parts on order!
