Oh yeah and the athlon only goes to 2800 on the mp edition. You can use pricewatch to find a board.

1. there is no xp 3400
2. it may be possible run some old athlon 64 fx-53 or 51 using the 940 chipset on that board. The opteron uses the same chipset but the FSB on that board is way too small.
4. You can run a dual athlon mp 2800+ board it will save you tons of money.
5. If you are running a server you will want a case better than 100. A case like that is cheap when you are talking all this money. Here is the nicest one.

if i had $250 US laying around I would get that.

are xeons as powerful as opteron. would 4 mp be the same as 2 opterons and would they be good for high end gaming?

Here is an outdated test of mp vs xeon
http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/200203131/index.html

Here is one comparing xeon vs opteron. There are faster opterons and xeons with faster fsb though.
http://www.anandtech.com/IT/showdoc.aspx?i=1982&p=1

Here is one comparing the dual xeon to p4
http://www.tomshardware.com/motherbo...11.html#opengl
as you can see xeons arent designed for games and neither is the opteron.

Unless you have some need for dual cpus then I would go with a singel socket 939 athlon fx-53

I agree with Airiox, for gaming I believe a FX-53 would perform better than dual processors. Much simpler aswell

In my opinion, it would make more sense to build a seperate medium spec. server PC aswell as a high-end gaming PC. These would probably end up being quicker than you running both on one PC.
