8 processor PC (i7 Quad core x 2)

I want to build a PC with 2 quad-core i7's ... is this possible? Will Windows 7 recognize all 8 processors? What motherboard should I buy.. i don't see any dual cpu slot i7 motherboards at NewEgg.

Thanks for any advise.

  1. Its possible with Core i7 based Xeons, but not Core i7 desktop chips, no.
  2. Some future Intel processors are to have 6 cores in a single socket. I believe they'll be compatible with socket1366.

    Knowing that most dual-socket boards were (are?) extremely bad on graphics, and very expensive, it could be better to await (2010 Q1?) this six-core instead. And then, don't buy the mobo until you know it works with the Cpu.

    Windows 7 gives licences for a number of sockets, so check it against the version of Windows you plan to buy - this as well may get expensive.
  3. cool.. thx for the help
