My System Specs

Default

The only alternatives that i've seen, have come from 10e. That's going the G34 way.. it seems the dual 6168s only perform as well as the 980x though - but roast through the 2684's much better though.
We've all read the quad G34's.. which is cost prohibitive, but looks fun as hell. It's overclockable.. only by multiplier on the black edition CPUs tho. (im assuming)

A 980x with a $200 mobo and good 2000Mhz DDR3 for overclocking would be a huge bump from a Q9450, and more 'cost friendly' than a dual xeon setup. You also have to think about resale too down the road - selling a 980x and standard x58 ram and mobo will be way easier than selling a dual xeon setup (that doesn't overclock).
