There are mobo's with multiple CPU ports. They will become more readily available as Intel releases their new CPU's, which will come in multi-chip packages.

Games are just beginning to take advantage of Dual Cores. Quake 4 has just released a patch, along with COD2 (which didn't really help). This is just the tip of the iceberg, and it's likely that many games will now take advantage of this. UT2007 will also have dual core support when it is released and should provide a decent boost if you have dual core, as this game promises to be extremely demanding. From then on, I'd imagine the majority of games will be able to take advantage of this technology

Yes, It could support 2 dual core processorshere. I had a motherboard similar to that, but it had SLi. It's a waste of money to get a compy with 2 processors unless your planning to run windows server or some os like that. 1 processor wouldn't go idle, it would share the work between the 2 processors, just working at 1/2 the speed.

Yes, you need a server motherboard, with a special PSU and registered memory.
