Default Best high end motherboard ????

Do any gamers use the TYAN S2895UA2NRF Dual Socket 940 NVIDIA nForce4 Professional SSI EEB 3.5 Server Motherboard??

Can have not just dual core, but 2 processors, I have heard that 2 single core opertons work best on this motherboard, opposed to 2 dual core opertons.

Now this is just hypothetical as it is not financially practical for 99.99% of us, but you could have two opertons, 4 gigs ram, 2 high end video cards, and 2 15000 rpm SCSI drives in RAID 0, correct?

A server with built in sound card and dual 16X PCI-X slots, it may end up being a server mobo in the field but they are aiming at silly gamers with loads of money on that one!

ill never go over about $250 for a mobo, the one i want for conroe from gigabyte is around $220, but the revised version(so it will support conroe) might be cheaper.

PS: why'd you steal nitestick's avatar? we've got too many people with double avatars, i thought you were nitestick, but then i seen the name.
