Why would I want that giant beast when a 1U will do for dual
opterons? :)

The V40zs have dual procs on the main board with a daughter board for
the other two procs. Each CPU has 4 DIMM slots. Sun has the daughter
boards for an outrageous price, but you can buy white box Newisys
daughter boards for a lot less.

The 64GB of 2GB DIMMs I am jealous of, other than that, the DL585 is so
outrageously priced I never considered it.
