I agree - I've been doing a lot of research on server hardware of late and
AMD's stuff is simply better, though harder to find. I found a company in
town called Dangeo that was cheapest on the mobo, 4Star was a good bet for
the CPU, and Memory Express has good pricing on the more common stuff like
SATA drives and RAM (they even seemed reasonable on registered).
Look around, you'll save a lot of money.
