When you stop to think about it... why wasn't an OC-able workstation available last year, uhh, ten years ago? Is stability all that important in a workstation? Yeah, sorta kinda!

But aren't dual-processor workstation/server boards wallet breakers by definition?

I think by the time I'm ready to upgrade again, the prices for both the new 45nm & dual CPU boards will be down enough in price to do it! (4-5 years from now)
Now that's what I would call a major upgrade!
By then the bios will be pretty much perfected for overclocking the system as well...
Then I would again see another 83-100% performance increase in the new system.
