I want to do this because I very much like AMD and its business practices, and I wish to have a very high performance AMD build rather than having to slink over to intel.


I'm dearly sorry if this sounds like a silly question, I'm not very informed on the server CPU market, but I am very familiar with the desktop market, so I hope you can understand why I am asking this question. Please, I don't care about money nor practicality, I just wish maximum performance, and if AMD provides what I wish.

AMD does not provide maximum performance.
It can be pretty good bang-for-buck if you get k10 Opterons.

but umm..My money would go to Westmere-EPs most likely.

Opteron is nowhere in Intel's ballpark from Nehalem architecture on.
