I'd love to upgrade to an Operton processor, but can't find much info about mobo's, overclockability, etc. Anyone got any links, info. I should check out. It seems like it could be the ultimate gamer chip based on the hype, but it needs a chipset and solid AGP support. All I can find are server boards with no AGP support at all and limited other capabilities. I know it is "designed" for the server market. However, having once had a Pentium Xeon setup in a desktop system I like the idea of using server designed chips for regular desktop pc's. You can get some seriously added boosts for the buck when you do this, but you gotta have a Mobo and video, PCI slots, etc. to go along with the server designed chip. I know I could wait till the fall for the official launch of the supposed desktop hammer chip, but why not use the higher performing server designed chip now in a board with the right chipset (like I hear NVidia may be producing as the NForce3 chipset.).
