I can't seem to find any single core Opterons these days - minimum I can find is 2 core, and that's for AM2 sockets (and can only saturate DDR2 ram? Am I mistaken?)
Should I restrict my selection to AM3 Opterons (http://products.amd.com/en-us/opteroncpuresult.aspx?f1=Quad-Core+AMD+Opteron%E2%84%A2&f2=&f3=Yes&f4=&f5=512&f6=AM3&f7=C2&f8=45nm+SOI&f9=75+W&f10=2200&f11=4&)?
Assuming so, would something like an Opteron 1389 (http://products.amd.com/en-us/OpteronCPUDetail.aspx?id=563&f1=Quad-Core+AMD+Opteron%E2%84%A2&f2=&f3=Yes&f4=&f5=512&f6=AM3&f7=C2&f8=45nm+SOI&f9=75+W&f10=2200&f11=4&) (2.9ghz, 4-core, AM3) be ideal then?
Or were you suggesting something more like this:
AMD Phenom II X4 Black (http://products.amd.com/en-us/DesktopCPUDetail.aspx?id=714&f1=&f2=&f3=&f4=&f5=&f6=&f7=&f8=&f9=&f10=&f11=&f12=)
AMD Phenom II X6 Black (http://products.amd.com/en-us/DesktopCPUDetail.aspx?id=726&f1=&f2=&f3=&f4=&f5=&f6=&f7=&f8=&f9=&f10=&f11=&f12=)
