you won't need opterons for that, and changhai can only run 800 mhz DDR2 RAM which can slow you down in future games

and that mobo won't support any opterons

athlon FXs are falling behind now, your better off going with an Athlon II x4 propus for 99 USD

it will be plenty for what you do

if you want more you can go with a phenom II
