Best server motherboard?

I may have some extra xeon 3.0gig 800Mhz fsb chips that I am looking for a dual motherboard to put into an XT chassis.
Any suggestions on a brand?

Thanks

Dave

Get yourself an Iwill DK8N. Lots of RAID options with 2 different SATA controllers. PCI-X slots. Firewire. Gigabit Ethernet.

Thanks for the input, but since I already have the Xeon chips, can you recommend a MB that supports these.

Thanks

Dave

I'd suggest something from the following list, or maybe one of the latest Intel motherboards.

Well if you must go Xeon then one of the SuperMicro X6D* series motherboards would be a good choice. Or a Tyan S2676 board.

Don't forget that these boards are larger than normal and will require a case for Extended ATX boards. And a power supply to match.

Can anyone explain the differences between the Intel 7520 chipset and the 7525 chipset.

I'm in almost the same predicament
