Is there such thing or even planned for a motherboard with duel slots? I have (2)Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E6320 and would like to utilize both somehow. Any suggestions?

Supposedly there is no plans for dual socket 775 so for those specific chips, you're probably out of luck. For Intel, socket 771 is designed for multi-processor workstations/smaller servers. It seems Intel has made a much cleaner distinction between its desktop and workstation platforms in the past 6 or 7 years.

At this point, it would be cheaper to sell your current cpus and buy a Q6600 or wait for a cheaper yorkfield (Q9300 perhaps?).

Skulltrail will fit any Xeon 771 socket CPU or the new QX9775 which is also 771 socket...

Skulltrail also supports SLI and Crossfire, which no other motherboard currently does. mobo is about $600 and QX9775 starts at around $1400, then if you want dual your looking at $2800 for cpu's add mobo for $3400... now all you need is hard drives, GPU, case, RAM (ooooh its ECC RAM too) EXPENSIVE build needless to say

There are soon to be some 2.3ghz 45nm socket771 xeons, which will be useful in it.

So the quick answer would be "No" to my question. Thanks

One Option would be to sell both and get a better single chip.
You may just want to see what you could get on eBay.

If you get a good deal, grab an E8xxx or Q6600.
