Default Itanium 2

Im looking for some advice. I recently picked up two Itanium 2 processors. I am looking to build a system with these. I have no idea where to start. I have not been able to locate a motherboard, so i am starting to wonder if its possible to homebuild a system. If anyone has any advice or experiance in this situation, please help!

What are you going to do with this computer? I hope your not going to play games.. It will probably be very expensive to find a mobo for that chip witch supports AGP or PCI Express.
Finished With TF.

No games.

My goal was to use it to crunch Seti@Home units. While doubling as a file print server.

I would like to find a mobo that has at the least SATA for the file storage, onboard video and audio will be fine. USB is a must.

are you sure they are Itanium 2's? I thought they were specifically designed to be used in supercomputers
I've seen some Itanium 1's being sold with computers though
