Hi all,

I have 2 virtual machines, running AMD Phenom II X2 and X4 respectively, each with 4G and 8G RAM and 600G/1T hard drive. They have been running for sometimes, mainly for testing.

I'm prepared to build a new virtual machine to replace the Phenom II X2 box, also for testing Linux servers with following config:

AMD 8-Core FX-8120 3.1GHz

RAM 16 or 32G
Corsair Vengeance CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9G DDR3 1600 16G Kit (4Gx4)
Corsair Vengeance CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10 DDR3 1600 32G Kit (8Gx4)

Hard drive 1.5T
WD Caviar Black 1502FAEX 1.5TB SATA3/64MB HDD

I haven't selected a motherboard yet.

Re CPU:-
I have looked at "AMD 8-Core FX-8150 3.6GHz/16M". The clock speed is faster by 0.5GHz increase but the price is 40% more

Comment and advice would be appreciated. Any suggestion in selecting motherboard to match the CPU? TIA
