Hi,

I want to put it simple straight.

This computer is not for gaming or browsing or flashy stuff or for everyday use. This is a strict Corporate system. I will run a SAP Software on this.

I have no idea about the Processors and suitable Motherboards which run Win. Server 2008 Enterprise Edition 64 Bit Operating System very very well on the machine.

For Processors I have

1. Intel Core i5 2500 or 2500K
2. AMD Phenom II 1090T Black Edition or 1100T Black Edition

PLEASE PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY PROCESSOR WHICH YOU THINK WILL SOLVE MY PURPOSE.


For Mother Boards I have

1. Asus P8P67 Mother Board
2. Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 Motherboard


PLEASE PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY MOTHERBOARD WHICH YOU THINK WILL SOLVE MY PURPOSE.

Let me know if You have any suggestion for the Processor/MotherBoard combination.

Quote :

NO GRAPHICS,GAMES,FLASHY STUFF. ONLY ONLY SERIOUS HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTER CUM SERVER




RAM for this Machine

1. Kingston 1333 MHz
2. Corsair 1600 MHz

I'm in India. We do not have 8GB RAM sticks here. So I'm forced to use 4 X 4GB sticks for now. Once I get 8GB sticks then I will upgrade to 32 GB RAM.



Cooling System

Do You have any idea on the Cooling System. or Casing like that of Cooler Master or any Cooling Fans.
Frankly I do not have any idea.


Please advise.


Thanks,
Masten.

Does this combination run great with Windows Server 2008 Operating System?
I need a Computer which runs my SAP Application Super Fast.

Hope You understand my requirement.

Thanks,

Should run fine. Do you really need a 2500k for that though? You could probably get the same performance out of a 2300/2400/2500 non-k version for a little cheaper.

It should run it more than well to do the task you require.

Thanks a lot for Your super fast reply.

I have few things to discuss here.

1. SAP Application runs only on Win. Server 2008 and You say that this combination will work fine?

2. If Yes, can You please specify which combination Processor and MotherBoard and RAm are You talking about? I'm very new to this Computer building thing. Thanks a ton.

3. I want to overclock to get the maximum out of this processor and RAM and Motherboard combination. What is the best possible combination out there for my requirement.

Thanks a lot for Your help.

Wouldn't a 2600K work out better in this environment with the extra 4 threads?

I use SAP too in my office ,I think SAP is basically network software so the i5 2400 is enough but you can pair it with Z68 based , 4 GB 12800 DDR3 and SSD,,.. and that must be important is super fast internet

I work as a SAP basis engineer - so....

I would go with Intel - HOWEVER, I would probably look more at a Xeon if you have the cash. If not, the 2500k would be OK, but not for a large user/data set.

SAP is a very system taxing product (especially depending on your release 4.6c, ECC, NW7.1 etc...)

Most of my systems run on dual xeons with 16 - 48GB of RAM and upwards of 20+GB swap files.

You will need fast HDD's, a large amount of RAM, and a great multi-core/hyper threaded processor.

Intel is better with virtualization in case your trying to do this in a VM.

(BTW< someone mentioned SAP is "network software", this is false, it is very system intensive and operates in conjunction with oracle, maxdb, db2, mssql DB's. It is a program you log into and perform actions, reports, etc.... It will use a "network" if communicating to app servers or DB servers etc, but is very much a stand alone application)

Also, SAP runs on Win Server 2000, 2003, 2008 (R2), Linux Redhat, Suse, UNIX, HPUX etc....... So you are not limited to just server 2008. Although you could install 2008 and then run a few flavors in VM's testing your personal preference. That's the whole thing behind SAP, it's made to run on virtually any OS and work with any DB. but be forwarned, its not a "Next, next, next...." install process. There are a LOT of system variables that need to be in place, you will need a DB, as well as all of the install media required (Install disk, kernel disk and a perm license key from SAP etc.)
