    I was thinking that for slow mechanical disk, lzo helps performance because compress/decompress is faster than read/write extra blocks to/from disk. But SSD maybe not.

    Poor performance 177.80

    Maybe I should reconsider Intel? I see newegg has q9450. What MB would you choose to go with this? I'm assuming DDR2, since AFAIK DDR3 is still a lot more expensive.

    recommended MB for phenom?

    I'm about to build a new server for high-performance computing use. I'm planning on a phenom, and am wondering what is the best chipset today, and what would be a good MB.
