Look at the reviews:

six benjamins for a mobo
Reviewed By: it's all about the on 3/30/2008 Tech Level: high - Ownership: less than 1 day
Pros: Virtual people on internet overclocking forums will be jealous of you.
Cons: See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: yeah, six hundred bucks for a motherboard just so you can use a $1.6k processor. Yeah.

the main problem is that most software doesn't run 64 bit, and not using more than 2 cores on a quad, and the hardware is out to run multi cpu, good way to waste money here

A lot of software runs 64 bit and is multithreaded. Perhaps not your favorite video game, but remember, there exist more people than just gamers than need powerful PCs.

I don't enjoy sitting around for hours on end waiting for my computer to finish a FEA analysis only to find out I need to run it several more times.

This kind of power has application in finance, engineering, and photo stuff. If you work on the stock market and you can get your models done 40% faster on this computer than you beat everyone else to the good buy.

"Only compatible with (FBDIMM) DDR2 800/667 MHz(limit 2 per customer)"

What? Could someone explain this?

You must use fully buffered DDR2 memory. It is much faster than regular DDR2 and scales very well with large amount of memory. However it is expensive and runs hot hot hot.

Ok i see. That would explain why it is only ddr2 800.

This is the explanation from Wikipedia:

Quote:
Fully Buffered DIMM (or FB-DIMM) is a memory technology which can be used to increase reliability, speed and density of memory systems. Conventionally, data lines from the memory controller have to be connected to data lines in every DRAM module. As memory width, as well as access speed, increases, the signal degrades at the interface of the bus and the device. This limits the speed and/or the memory density. FB-DIMMs take a different approach to solve this problem.
