A deci-core O.o, well the only ones I can think of that you would probably be able to get you hands on are the intel engineering samples on ebay. I do not know of any AMD deci-core CPUs that you would be able to get your hands on. Oct-core woud be easier as there are both engineering samples from both intel and the already available bulldozer from amd that you can get. keep in mind that the intel cpus iirc are hyper threaded so each core can process in a sense 2 threads and the os will detect it as a 20 core or a 16 core cpu. Also motherboards aren't out for the engineering samples so finding them is up to you if you choose to go that route. I do not recommend buying engineering samples of anything as I have never done so myself and I hear its a hit or miss whether you find a working one or not.

Exactly my question as well lol. 32 GB is an insane amount for a computer for any home use. There are plenty of people on the forums that have high end systems and it seems Mackdanny is trying to build something of a beyond high end, something I call enthusiast level lol.

But we go back to the same situation. If you have an old computer with a Nvidia card, the same will occurr. That's you fault, not ATI fault. They won't make drivers compatible with the same card forever. They must make the drivers to the current cards that they are making.
Ati in the past from my builds has given more problems then they are worth driver related and not driver related lol. I have never though needed to do any reg hacks to get a gpu to work. Nvidia driver wise has always worked for me out of the box and only time crashes were present are when my computer was unstable from overclocking or if I was on Ubuntu. With that said both ATI and Nvidia to date have quiet stable drivers from my experience and listing a driver issue as a reason to stay away from either one shouldn't be valid anymore.
