if you really wanna save some money you could just go with a i3 1155 set up and not the server grade stuff. that would shave a good $125 off.
Ehh I'll think about the i3. I'm just more of an i5/i7 kinda guy. I was first planning to go with a dual-CPU board and I knew it would be costly but to get two 1366 CPUs is a lot of money. I dont need it to be server grade stuff. I just want it to be serve grade stuff in it.

You can save a bit of power and money going with a E1240 instead (or 1230).
I'm not to worried about the power consumption (maybe once I move out I can start folding) I'm actually saving $40 for switching to the ASUS P8B WS board.
