Does anyone have any suggestions for LGA 1366 Dual Socket Motherboards that might work for building a rig? I'm looking primarily to get rendering done faster in After Effects, so going dual socket is a must. Thanks in advance

I'm basically looking at a few on newegg and trying to match up the NB / SB combos to known working samples, so we're looking at Intel 5500 or 5520 and ICH10R

A couple I was potentially looking at

I couldn't be happier with this build and snow leopard runs flawlessly. This is way more powerful than any Mac Pro you can buy and for a quarter of the cost. Give it a try man.. See ya
