    Kano - look again at the two links I posted (and there is more:
    Q8300:
    http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id...es=SLB5W,SLGUR

    one version can do vt, five can't. You buy a Q8300? You have a good change to be screwed by Intel.

    nanonyme: you are right, there is an easy way to get a cpu doing vt in hardware, and google helps you find one:
    just buy AMD.

      Right, maybe be on the secure path an get something from Q9. the diff is very small anyway. Mainly OEM buy those Q8 cpus because they need something with quad cores. The Q8200 is often used there but i would never consider that cpu as usefull - especially in a board which does not allow OC. 2.33 ghz is very low...

I had a few changes made, naturally... like the whole thing went back to drawing board.

          Generally with people like that it's easier to promote them out of harm's way

            Well it depends on the os you want to run if you will like fake raid or not. Win runs without problems on it usually and even if your board dies you can fire up Linux (maybe not Ubuntu if HPA is used) and you get access to your data with any board using dmraid. Maybe do a stress test and replace one hd when you configured raid1 or 5. But of course any raid does not solve backup problems. If your data is really important then best sync it on another pc which could run as fallback and maybe even on external storage as well. Gamer hardware is usally good quality but maybe a bit unusual to have got a cmos clear button on it So bios passwords are really easy to bypass - it would take a little bit longer on another system. But anyway everybody with phyical access can do changes to a system or copy data.

              anyone try kvm -enable-nesting? thats my biggest draw towards phenom2

              im looking at quadcore phenom2 and i7, opterons are too expensive.

                Except that it isn't, you forgot Celeron Dual-Core, there is an E3x00 series that have VT.

                  Ok, i did not look at celeron because the cache is even smaller, but of course it is cheaper you are right.
