Why do you have to have two processors? Why not just a nice dual core system?

What are you using the computer for? With 2 DC Opterons (940) you are going to spend a ton on that alone.

Here is the cheapest one:

You also have to buy ECC Ram.

Yes, and how long do you plan on using this before upgrading?

Getting 4 cores will not help gaming at all as of now. It will actually be slower since most games can only use 1 core.

yea i think you're coming across as someone who knows absolutely nothing. 2 CPU's won't get you "Intense" gaming or anything. only a decent server needs that.

Go for an FX-60, thats as intense CPU's get as far as gaming is concerned.

And also get SLI if you want "Intense" gaming.
