tonight we will find out haha.
I only use my gaming computer to play games with the wife, before she was around.. you wanna hear a shocker.. I was on the road to semi pro football but she was a hot nerd that drove me into computers and gaming haha.

This will be a fun change of pace though to try the whole server in gaming, and in time server underwater then server OCing cuz I'm crazy

was able to talk my rep into getting me 32gb of ddr3 1600 ram instead of the 64gb of 1333 we have at the office, think 32 is more then enough and the 1600 will help if I do FSB OCing

Don't think so. Aside of the SR-2, no MP board can be oc'ed.

I had a Tyan dual opteron gaming build back in '05 that was just smoking fast for it's day.
No doubt Tyan had this in mind when they put the board together, since it allowed for SLI.

This was mine. SLI, scsi drives and raptors, plextor dvd burner...

Incorrect, seem's there are users out there doin so for folding reasons, so ocin it for gaming reasons is feasable.

Soullessone21 might want to check it out here: AMDZone.com • View topic - 2p G34 overclocking for F@H

Also the "Quadfather" systems where 2 cpu'ed systems as well back in the day & had oc'ing options.

Incorrect. I've read that thread 100 times. They use TPC, which is not BIOS oc'ing, AND you need Extra Spicy chips. I know, I had a S8812 for about 1 year with quad 6174s.

Unless you have the quad SM G34 offering and you flash your BIOS with the [H] beta BIOS, then it might work. Then again not - ask 4DoorGTZ...

Also as long as he has a SSD drive to run games off of in it will also help too. :)

Throwing one of my 120gb ssd's in tonight and imaging over.
It ran head to head with my FX8150 at 4ghz all games I played only varied from 1-3 FPS and the server was actually faster in DIII :S very odd haha.

I will get real numbers up after my morning meeting
