if your board will support it a xeon x series cpu is the best bang for your buck as apposed to a I7.

Speaking from personal experience, the MSI Big Bang XPower X58 DOES support a Xeon X5650 with the latest bios, with a catch.

On the original Nehalem 45nm, the uncore was usually set to 2x memory multiplier, but the Westmere-EP's can run at 1.5x memory multiplier if need be. Given that the stock memory multiplier is 10x (133x10 = 1333), the Uncore multiplier doubles to 20x (133x20 = 2666). This is completely fine at stock; however, when you try to OC it, you will obviously want to lower the memory multiplier (e.g. 200x8 = 1600), but the Uncore won't lower to the "double" @16x (12x or 1.5 times memory multi is ENTIRELY out of the question) and will stay at 20x (meaning 200x20 = 4000). For me this was completely unstable at voltages I was comfortable with, so for that build I was only able to OC the X5650 to 160x20 = 3200, with a memory of 160x10 = 1600, and an Uncore of 160x20 = 3200. I ended up giving this system to a family member for CAD use, and decided to keep my Sabertooth X58 for my own X5650 @4.4

I hope that helps.

It helps a ton, I wish I could rep your response. I've received a few pms about the xeon route. Which sounds great but my concern was stability of my system. Thank you for the insight.
