Default Best high end motherboard ????

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

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813151149

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.
