I am building new workstation to edit HDV. Just bought Tyan 2895 board with PCI Express. Have nVidia 6800 GTO EOM board. Looking to buy 2 Opteron 250s. It is possible to buy these processors on eBay but is there a potential for problems? Monarch said to watch out for stepping codes that don't work together. Also, I hear that these processors are manufactured in Dresden but the chip I'm looking at now on eBay says assembled in Malaysia. Does anybody know anything about this stuff? Thanks.
paypal protection now makes it easier to get your money back if someone misrepresented thier products i believe.

Thanks for the feed back. I've looked at all the cases and finally decided the one I want is Thermaltake Armor E-ATX (VA8000BWS). Monarch sells it for $165. No power. I just went and looked at the one you recommend. It's great looking. They only have one at Tiger that can handle this larger mobo.
