It is likely extremely overpriced for what you are getting.

Almost all workstation / server boards are made for 2-4 CPU's, with some even letting you use huge huge numbers like 16+

If i am correct, mac pro's are EATX which is bigger than the average desktop, and the same size as every other common workstation / server.

Infact, you can get dual quad core in 1U racks these days even.

Mac Pro is the same size as any other dual processor based desktop workstation

And you can get dual quad core's in even smaller rack mounted cases.
