I think if you go for a third rig, you should use the 16C Piledriver CPUs...64 "nearly-cores" @ 2.8GHz!
These G34 CPU's are actually dual 6-cores(or 4 or 8) fused together, hence the weird shape. Sorta like Thuban on steriods. Piledriver is still unproven, but hopefully it's better than Bulldozer. We will see...

And now i'll try to hold to my poor sr-2...
for the SR-2's that originally cost about the same as this rig(~2k). They paved the way for rigs like this.
