Default Opteron vs. FX-60

Perhaps Opteron one on one against FX-60, would lose...

...but is it possible to have two FX-60's in one rig, as motherboards today support two Opterons?

So basically, I need to see if there are motherboards out there on newegg that can support either two Opterons, or two FX-60's.

Are those even available on newegg? I looked at so many manufacturing sites, and nada.

Just out of curiosity, why would you need that much power?

Hmmm... looks like this would be overkill after all.

Heh, it would be overkill. There is simply no reason to have that much power.. other than extreme multitasking, I don't think that power can be harnessed at all.

Um that isn't that much power. Maybe for the individual user yeah. Just cause it isn't on newegg doesn't mean it's not out.
