Will post my workstation 'puters in the appropriate section later.
I wish I could have afforded more than the 240 procs but the other hardware was needed as well. For gaming the the Opteron is slow due to the 1.4Ghz proc (since only one instead of the two are being used) At least the BFG does much better than the 9800np I tried on the Opty system. BTW: This Opteron system is very quiet. Good job on the fans on the procs AMD.
