Default evga sr2 classified 4-way sli motherboard

looking at building a futureproof gaming/mediacenter rig. was looking for a x58 usb 3.0 motherboard and found this sr2 classified at evga's website. whats the thoughts on the dual cpu motherboards? and evga has it listed for only 100 bucks more than the x58 4-way sli classified w/ usb 2.0. the size is pretty rediculous only mountain mod cases support it right now. but pretty sweet none the less.

My System Specs

The only issue I have with it is the price of the processors to put in it. You need Xeons with dual QPI links, which is the E5500 series, I believe. They are easily $100 more each than a comparable i7. Mind you, if you're on a budget, you're not building one of these systems.
