Possibly. Like I said, once I limited the gpu's 2xfermi and 2xg80 to all use only one cpu core, the fermi's PPD both suffered, can't remember exactly but I think it cost them 750-1K ppd each. That was enough for me to give up on running smp on that rig. You will probably want to experiment running the smp on 4 or 5 cores and see how much of a difference it makes. I'm sure an x6 will fare much better then my lowly dual/tri core.

Do let us all know what you decide and how it works out!

I picked up a 790FX-GD70 recently for $60 after MIR at frys. I was told the only down side is you can kill the board with an x6 and going for 4ghz. I currently have an x2 250 in it, I plan to go with an x4 eventually. Otherwise its a solid board, room for 4 dual slot cards is nice.

I'm beginning to lean towards the GD70...it sets up the best for GPU folding. I'll probably stick an x6 on there and SMP fold, but not try to clock to the moon.
