Slap a 4870X2 in it and call it a day. Heres what i come up with:
That will surely result in audio production :)

Nehalem Beckton easly kils a dual socket quad xeon
+ it handels multie socket 2 or 4 or more
true multie scaling
2x beckton = 24 threads
4x beckton = 48 threads
We all know by now how much you love Nehalem, get your facts straight though. Beckton is a Xeon MP, of course it outperforms a Xeon DP of the previous generation. It's far beyond his budget as well.
As for "multi scaling", like the text you quoted says, Nehalem gets raped by two Xeon DP's. Eight actual cores outperform the four Nehalem cores with HTT.
Please stop recommending Nehalem in every thread and thrashing everything else.
