Nah, Opterons are good but only when overclocked.

Get the X2 along with 2 7800GTXs (1 GTX beats any ATi). And make sure you get a A8N-SLI. I've added you to MSN

Was looking at the benchmark tests. The 1 256 GTX gets creamed by the 512 ATI.

System so far.

Tyan Motherboard S2895A2NRF AMD Opteron 200 AMD 8131 Socket940 Dual DDR400 PCI-E16X Audio GBLan SATA RAID 1394
(http://www.tyan.com/products/html/thunderk8we.html)

2x AMD Opteron 252 2.6GHz 1MB 64/32 Bit Single Core
*So not dual core but will have dual processors*

2x 256MB BFG Geforce 7800 GTX-OC's

and

************************************************** *******
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+
(Depends on the pricing of the 4800+ where I am at)

Asus A8N 32-SLI-Deluxe NVIDIA Socket 939 ATX Motherboard

2x 256MB BFG Geforce 7800 GTX-OC's
************************************************** *******

Got the 2 comps down to what I want in each. Which do you all think will be the better gaming comp? Keep in mind that I dislike O/Cin. and most likely wont be doing that.
*Went with 2x 256 GTX's cause it will beat 1 512 ATI. and since crossfire is well a joke right now. I will stick with Nvidia for yet another round*

For a gaming rig, get anything that has dual geforce 7800GTX 256MB or 512MB. Right now, the Athlon 64 FX-57 is suppose to be the major ownage now for gaming, but get the fastest dual core money can buy and that is the Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Toledo. That extra cache is nice but expensive.

Here's my list part for part:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Toledo 1GHz FSB 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Dual Core Processor - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103544

or

AMD Athlon 64 FX57 San Diego 1GHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103558

*Make sure you get a good case for cooling if you are using this motherboard, like the one I recommend below:
ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131568

2 of these:
eVGA 256-P2-N529-AX Geforce 7800GTX 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130237

or 2 of these babies (may be overkill, but you got the best there is):
BFG Tech BFGR78512GTXOC Geforce 7800GTX 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143044

2 of these and set as RAID 0:
Western Digital Raptor WD740GD 74GB 10,000 RPM 8MB Cache Serial ATA150 Hard Drive - OEM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144160

Creative SOUND BLASTER X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS 8 (7.1) Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102189

Hell of a nice case with PCI slot and CPU cooling:
Lian Li PC-60APlus Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112077

CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145524

Total OWNAGE!!! The reason why I like that motherboard is because there are no restrictions on video bandwidth. You are using full throttle x16 speed on both PCI-e x16 slots instead of half speed on all the other motherboards avaialble now.

the one with 2 x1800s. unless you plan to get 2 512mb 7800s. that will be better. but the 512s only cuz theyre better than x1800s.
