There isn't anything wrong with the Opty. Although if you were to go that route you could save some cash and get the Opty 165 and overclock it to the 170's speed. essentially all the Optys are the same.

If you don't need the extra oomph of a core2 then I think the Opty is a more economical choice. You can boost your speed for little cash in the short term and then next spring go for a quad core if you want.
