If you want to spend like $400 on a Motherboard and use two of them, that would be good.

Well, I wouldn't recommend a Xeon for gaming just like no AMDer would recommend an Opteron for gaming. If you want Intel and you're a gamer, get yourself a low-end Pentium M and a DFI 855GME-MGF. When you oc the Pentium M to like 2.45 GHz, it even outperforms an FX-55 for almost $500 less.

Xeons, Opertons are server ideal. My friend has a single Opteron. He uses it for gaming, dont know why he just dident get a Athlon.
