Holy crap you know how much a computer like that would cost? are you crazy. I would go with itantium or whatever, xeon or opterons. Not athlon 64's. I doubt anyone makes a mobo like that.

The ram alone would be like $1000 bucks. The procesors another $1000. The motherboard would probably be $300-500. And you would have to have a Lian Li case to keep all that cool. $200. graphics $500. hard drives $400. powesupply $200-$250.

You are lookin at like a $5000 computer here. Ah the Xeon would be the best though.

They've tried to make dual 64 bit servers but they were to unstable, I believe I read it somewhere, not sure how reliable the source was lol.

K if money is no object and you wont use the inexpensive xeon you are either stuck with slow athlon mp or the very pricey opteron.

Here is how much the high end opteron is ->Opteron 850

And a motherboard-> opteron dual mobo

have fun you can get xeon for thousands cheaper.

Oh but that board doesnt have agp but you can get a pci ex card i think

This one has agp-> agp + PCIex board
