Same here. I tried installing windows 7 back on my PC and everything seems so outdated, the booting time, everything. I had to re-install windows 8 because I could not stand 7 anymore.

I know how you feel... When you want the latest, you just want it tongue.gif

I've spend 3000€ / $4010 on my machine few years ago. After couple months I dropped a pair GTX470's in it, adding another 700€ / $935

Why? Cause I can???!!! (duh) I work for it so...

Anyway it just feels annoying after a year NOT having the latest and greatest hardware anymore (or if you would "rebuy" it, it's half the price redface.gif)

But even more anyway tongue.gif

Why not use this mobo? It has room for dual Xeon's adding moar poweuh for calculating stuff!

The 3930K is not compatible in dual mode iirc. Dual CPU are usually for servers and I think only the xeons are compatible on the intel side. They do perform better than the i7 but are they worth the price? Probably not for gaming and amateur work.

The problem with the Xeon E5's (E5 = dual, E3 = single) is that they are locked, you cannot overclock them.

That's why you probably saw a few people with SR-2 builds back on the X58 days but you don't see those today.

E5-1xxx = Single
E5-2xxx = Dual
E5-4xxx = Quad
