Default Need help building a system

Hi guys
My work has given me the task to build a pretty decent system. I was thinking of getting a dual processor motherboard can any of you recommend any? I wanted to run dual AMD 64bit CPUs preferably. The budget is about AUD$2-3 thousand for the box.

The main use for the system will be 3d animation/rendering, video editing/rendering. Alot of system intensive stuff, we want a system that can take alot of sh*t basically.

If you have any other reccomendations for the system let me know.

Cheers,
Eyes0nly

Yeah thats Australian dollars, I did find a few dual processor amd motherboards on the Australian giga-byte website, but I was looking more for socket 939, and with more than 1 PCI slot.


**EDIT** I was looking for dual processors motherboards not dual core processor, but I might look into this.

This case totally rocks in terms of strength and cooling:

COOLER MASTER Praetorian 730 RC-730-SSN1 Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119084

to go along with this good power supply:

Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550 ATX12V 550W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, TUV, CB, FCC CLASS B, CUL - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103931

Dual core Athlon 64's (X2) work like multiple processors. It has two cores on one die making multitasking more efficient without slowdowns we're likely to see on single core CPUs.
