Post ESXi4 on Asus M3N78-EMH HDMI
Motherboard - Asus M3N78-EMH HDMI nForce 8200 Micro-ATX (Socket AM2) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard[/list]
CPU - AMD Phenom X4 Quad Core 9950 2.60GHz Black Edition (Socket AM2)
RAM - 2 X Crucial "CT2KIT25664AA800" totaling 8GB
Storage Controller - Adaptec 2610SA.
NIC - Intel Pro 1000 GT
DISK - 3 X 500GB, configured as RAID 5 via the Adaptec SATA card.

Also have two 150GB ATA drives which are being seen by ESXi 4. No overclocking has been done on the Mobo as I have read a few horror stories about system crashes.

ESXi4 was installed to a 4GB (Hewlett Packard) USB flash drive which I have installed internally via one of the on board USB headers.

This is my first try with ESXi and I am very pleased with it. I have already used VMware Converter (standalone) to move three Intel based guests to the AMD based ESXi server.

The system previously ran CentOS 5.3 with the XEN Kernel. I would say that ESXi seems to push the hardware a little more than XEN as the noise level from the server has risen quite dramatically.

Should have mentioned that this is "What I have ESXi running on" :-)
