    Hi,

    Why do you need 4 physical CPU's. As much as there would be alot of power and there are boards which support this. Your hard drive speed and RAM would bottlekneck your system unless you had SAS 15000RPM Drives and DDR2-8300 or DDR3 RAM.

    Economical, depends on your definition. The board will likely run $700+ and you'd need to buy the series of CPUs that support 4. It definitely won't be cheap, by my standards at least.

    You have no idea how wrong you are. We have 16 core machines that hardly touch disks, and ram is definately not a bottleneck.

    4-way motherboards and processors are about a twice expensive as 2-way. 4-way systems isn't economical at all in their ideology. Correct me if I'm wrong, but you can get 3x 2-way systems at the cost of 1x 4-way system or at least 2x 2-way will be cheaper. I recommend you to think about load distribution across N servers. If you will have good software, you can scale far more than 4-way.
