As far as I know this is the only dual socket desktop mobo currently available but as TheOtis and Da Viksta already said you would be better of with a good single socket board.

I wouldnt bother. I have a $6k dual socket workstation I use at work and its just not as good as something I could build in my opinion.

With dual socket motherboards you have no overclocking capabilities, limited to ddr2-667 standard, have to use socket 771 processors (not that bad of problem).

Build a quad core, put 8 gigs of memory into it, overclock it - thats my opinion.

yeah get a intel quad core and start with 4 gigs first and upgrade when it is needed also u need a good internet connection to host servers with high bandwidth

LMAO that made my day.

that $600 motherboard is just crazy, looks more like a modified server board in my opionion than a "high end enthuist w/e crap"

The only thing out of a server I'd ever consider using would be SCSI raided Hard drives and redundant power supplies.
