Well, the contact in the shop can get me motherboards from:

After searching each supplier, Microstar are the only one's who seem to carry 
Opteron boards and Dual Opterons at that.

I've been searching Ireland for Opteron boards for a while. You can get a few 
servers and even fewer workstations, but you know the price of those. I'll 
start with the MB, get a few memory chips here and there, pick up an Nvidia 
card and a big tower case for all my drives, and wait for the lottery to get 
a pair of Opterons to power it all.

That is what I was hoping to hear. At least no one has said that MSI boards 
were crap.
