The link to the motherboard just brought me to a list of a bunch of motherboards. Be warned that some major manufacturers actively prevent you from using Xeon chips in order to push their server boards. Make sure the board you choose is compatible before ordering.
That's a pretty sick chip for $80 though, 4.1ghz turboboost on an ivy bridge quad core, if you can bump up the turboboost that thing is just insane bang for the buck. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
I tried to check out with paypal and it won't let me. Combine that with a lot of bad reviews about delays in refunds, wrong parts being sent, no replys from CS, and some sketchy positive reviews, it seems like a good idea to avoid it. The CPU normally sells for $1,000, definitely one of those "too good to be true" scenarios.
