Yep, I do run a lot of VM's at times.

I added some updated pictures to the first post.


So far I have the RAM up to 1866 Mhz out of the spec'd 2000Mhz.

Nice Shawn, thanks for sharing some specs and pics.

Just out of curiosity, what about your hard drives? You didn't mention those.

Ah, I see. My bad.

I assumed you built a whole new machine, and left your old one intact.

Nar, I just updated the motherboard, RAM, and CPU for now. Everything else is still fast enough for now, but I will be looking into a new graphic card once the prices on them get a bit lower and all the new models are out from all vendors.

Yeah, I am a vm nut as well. I view virtualization as the single biggest improvement in the IT field since I started working in IT almost 14 years ago. In this case, it seems like the box would run out of RAM before it really labored the CPU.

Yeah, that has always been the way that I have done it. One of these days, I'm going to have to just live a little and actually upgrade a mobo, CPU, and RAM. I usually just feel that I can use the older machine to upgrade somebody else in the house so I usually leave it all together.
