Thanks for the help guys.
I managed to pick up a supermicro G34 board and a 6134 for cheap.
I fiugred the 8 cores will come in handy. It's only 2.3ghz, but I think I can push the HT to 210 and get 2.4 if it's really necessary.
I also picked up a noctua NH-U12DO A3. Should keep everything cool and quiet.
I'd have gone C32, but this was actually cheaper. I don't think 300mhz will make that
much of a difference.
By the way, are C32 and G34 the came performance, clock for clock, thread for thread? I can't find much comparison between these opterons and any other chips.
I'll move to BD later when prices drop again.
