Maybe take that money and turn one of your K9 systems into a bigadv system? The i7 1366 kind.

XFX boards are not known to be reliable (I just trashed a 780i version). That Gigabyte X58 board on my previous is much better. If you're on a very tight budget, go for an Asrock X58Extreme or you might be even lucky to snatch an Extreme3 version for a little over $100 (open box at Newegg for $135).
Newegg has the X58Extreme vanilla version for $105 open box.
Thanks Bog. That kind of information is greatly appreciated and needed.
xbonez, bigadv is now as close as a switch in the SMP client, assuming you have the hardware.
