Post Budget motherboard suggestions
I hope this is the right sub-forum.

I have been trying to find a cheap (or even the cheapest) compatible ESXi 4 motherboard, ideally with both compatible SATA and LAN (LAN can be replaced with an Intel card if needed).

Has anyone got any suggestions?

On the whitebox HCL the systems with a green OK will have both local storage and the NIC working.

I'm using an Asus P5E-VM DO and Intel DP35DP in the lab which are fairly reasonably priced. Do you have a preference for the MB manufacturer?

Thanks for the input.

I've been going through the list, which is quite comprehensive. I'm just asking here incase anyone knew of any models off the bat.

I don't have any manufacturer preference. I'm already aware of the Intel DP35DP. Will check out the Asus P5E-VM next.
