Then again if you have that much money, you've no need to be running 2900XT's and FX-74's. You're smart enough to go intel/nvidia.... (hopefully.)
Well, if you have that much money, the dual FX-74s actually beat the QX6700 in most benchmarks on Tom's Hardware. The only reason people here don't get dual FX-74s is because of the price tag, but if you want sheer outright performance regardless of cost, the FX-74s are actually a viable option.
