Default What to do with these parts?

So, I've come into posession of some sealed in-the-box parts:

2 x intel e8400 processors
2 x gigabyte 9800gt video cards
4 x 2gb ddr2 800 ram chips

and a case.

Ive received comments to sell the parts online. Others have told me that I could build a relatively powerful system out of what I have.

Does anyone have any opinions?

I tried looking for dual cpu and dual video card motherboards which would support all of the above parts with the hope of combining them into a single powerful computer, but I'm having no luck in finding such a motherboard.

Does a motherboard supporting 2 x dual core cpus and 2 x video cards exist?

I should add that I'm fairly inexperienced/ new to tinkering with computer hardware. Can anyone either offer me a suggestion or direct me to a site that could help me track down such a motherboard which I can then buy...

Any help would be appreciated!!

You could build a pretty nice computer out of that. I would sell half of the ram, and one processor, then build a computer out of the rest.
