I just had a thought of how fast one of those new dual core intel chips on a board that hyperthreads would be.
right now there is only (1) board that will run the dual core w/ hyperthread and the chips are 3.2 ghz. Downside is that the processors are $1100 ea. ( OUCH !! )
Just throwing out my wish list / dreaming to see if anyone else has looked at that combination..
