Default Dual Opteron with PCI-Express

Hey,

Anyone know about any dual opteron Motherboards that support PCI-Express.

I figure that if I want hyperthreading, the next best thing was to get a dual Opteron System. Since Opterons are basically Athlon FX's with the additional Hypertransport Buses and SSE3 instruction support, basically I'm looking at biulding a rig that has the CPU advantages of both Intel and AMD.

I heard that the NF4 chipset supported Opteron as well, so is there any mobo's with it for the Opteron?

Opterons are for servers my friend. No need to put them into your system.

Now that, coupled with GF6800GT/Ultra's in SLI, 2 x 2.4GHz Opterons, and a nice Scsi U320 raid and a heathly dose of 2GBRAM (4x512 4 channels would it not? dual per CPU?) would make a killer of a machine any techie would be proud to own.

Anyone with that could kill us all...........AHHHHH!
