Yea and lots of power in the older xeon procs. I saw 2.2 ghz xeons sell 
for $5 on ebay last week.

This means, for the cheap power junkies that with a used $35 603 MB, you 
can have a 4.4 ghz and procs for less than $50.00. Compare that to a 
dual core athlon 4.4 that is over a c note for the proc only.

Of course that means a extended atx case.
