Any reason why you need the dual CPU?

Because any thing more is main there for servers, people that need a WORK MACHINE or people that have more money than sence.

my bad.

Personally, IF i was going to build this beast, I would just hold off until next year. Let the new trends in technology sink in.
We have seen a lot of changes this year.
- PCI-Express
- SATA 300 (possibly) at the end of the year

If this machine was a possiblity, i would just hold off just at little bit longer just to let the new trend sink in.

Example :- Socket 423 with Rambus Memory.

I would get the Opteron 850 models instead of the 248's
they do what hyperthreading does, but it is 8 virtual processors. a dual Opteron 850 and you'd have 16 virtual processors!!!!!!

you can only get dual motherboards so far, but a quad sounds nice, just think.... 32 virtual processors
