That's enough for me to say no....... not that I have the cash to waste on that anyway.

Wow, I couldn't even fathom to guess what this would cost. Even if I had the money, I don't see the need for such a motherboard, seems like too much power to me.

I think Failegg had it on for under $600 which is decent for a dual socket board.
