I wonder what two Athlons in MP mode (in a modded MP mobo) could do... I know it's multicore in a different sense and there's a bus between the two cpu's, but still... two of those chips (512k Bartons) @ 2.8-3.2ghz, 4gb (3.25 addressable) of ECC memory and a 3850 AGP... that'd be interesting. ... it'd certainly run Crysis, especially if 2.8 socket 478's with HT enabled can when coupled with a ~HD3850. ...I like Frankenstein PC's, lol.
