a 3.4/800Ghz P4 system with 1K cache and PCIExpress and its slower

Have you googled already for tyan K8WE? Dual Opteron 200 series, dual
PCI-express ready for SLI and yes both with full 16 lanes when in SLI
opposed to shared 16 lanes as other current bords have.
The bord will go out for about 600EUR (all features), not even that
expensive (still way above my budget).
I just browsed into the topic, but K8WE is fully based on NVIDIA kludge
chipsets, the chipsets company is not open source friendly, I don't
think you will get good support from open source world, based on the
point, Intel is still the best X86 Server platform except its CPU
