I have a 1U rackmount server lying around with an old Pentium 4 motherboard (Super Micro P8SCi). To upgrade this server (on a small budget), can I keep the case/chassis and simply replace the motherboard with a newer generation motherboard? If so, which class of motherboards must I look for?
Thanks in advance
P.S. - The motherboards I have in mind for this upgrade are either the Intel XEONs or Core i7's. And yes I'm aware I need new memory too.
