A single i7 980X outperforming 2 of the xeons I linked on a 2p motherboard with his applications
I seriously doubt it.
No need to doubt.. Its not gonna happen.. Having said that, I too would recommend a 2P setup.. 3DS Max can actually process to a max of 16 threads.. Depending on the project size, a good amount of ram is needed too.. As for the motherboard (assuming OP has not already bought one) the Asus Z8NA-D6C can be a cheap and effective option..
