Default Thunder K8SD Pro

I saw this on ebay, Thunder K8SD Pro, it comes with two new Opteron 286 CPUs. It states stuff about being a server board, but my question is this: I'm looking at it for my brother, who does a lot of stuff with AutoCAD and could use the dual processor setup, I can run a regular OS and use it as a regular cpu and not just as a server, right? If it's a stupid question, then I apologize in advance. I'm just trying to do something nice for my brother that won't break me.
Here's the link to the board:

Intel PD 820; 3.36GHz, 31C idle 43C under load
Thermalright Ultra 120 CPU Cooler
3 120mm Delta case fans each @ 146 CFM
ASUS StrikerExtreme, WD Raptor 150Gb
4Gb Crucial Ballistix PC-6400 (5-6-6-21) @ 960MHz
LIAN LI PC-V2100APlus II, Sony & BTC DVD Burners
evga e-GeForce 8800GTX Superclocked 768MB

seems good. Dual CPU's would really work great for AutoCAD. Just because a computer has 2 CPU's doesn't mean that its only used for server apps. Go for it!

Those are server CPUs though, so it wouldnt work as well as say having dual core, or even having 2 cpus.
