Default Best Server MotherBoard

Hey Guys,

Wondering if you can help me out. Don't even know if one exists but if it does does anyone know where I can get a server motherboard that supports the following;

2 x Xeon 3.2Ghz 2MB cache 533 FSB
2 x PCI Express
DDR2-667 RAM (any supported amount will do but approx. 16GB would be good)

Before anyone says anything, I know this would make a monster of a machine, but it is for a sort of learning project shall we say. Thnx very much guys, I look foward to rading your answers.

Thnx for the effort mate, but I really need 2x PCI express slots. I can deal with the lower speed RAM but the 2x PCI express slots are a must. Thnx anyway mate. Anyone else got any ideas???

For two top of the range gfx cards mate. It might sound strange to want to do that with a server, but I am doing research with a computer organisation to see to what extent you can put the pure speed and strength of server processing power into desktop style use. Sounds strange but I would have to go into much more detail for it to make anymore sense.
