what could possibly be the downside of using a server CPU as a cpu in a gaming rig?
here is the build i have in mind

Intel BOXD5400XS Dual LGA 771 Skulltrail D5400XS Extended ATX Motherboard - Retail

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ - Retail (x2)

Intel Xeon E5410 Harpertown 2.33GHz LGA 771 80W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80574E5410A - Retail (x2)

OCZ GameXStream OCZ1010GXSSLI ATX12V / EPS12V 1010W Power Supply - Retail
EVGA 512-P3-N802-AR GeForce 8800GT Superclocked 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail(x2, maybe 4)

Western Digital Caviar SE WD5000AAJS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM(x2)
and thats pretty much the base of it

1) The Skulltrail won't take anything other than FB-DIMMs. That G.Skill kit wont work.
2) Do you really need 1010W?

~Gooda~

Two cpu's will do absolutely nothing for you in games. There are much better ways to spend your money.

BTW, FB-DIMM's are ridiculously expensive. I think they cost $2000 for a 2gb kit.

not really looking for gaming, more for 3d rendering, some insane 3d rendering though, realistic renderings, doing 3d models of buildings and interiors and landscape etc, gaming also though. crysis maxxed out would be nice
