Another company, which was giving out tape measures at the conference 
(can't remember who at the moment), was showing off a really nicely 
designed quad Opteron system, which I think was about $20k list.  They 
payed attention to airflow, PCI busses, expandability, chassis design, 
and memory slots.  It's the only quad Opteron I've seen so far that has 
all 16 possible DIMM slots (4 per processor) actually put on the board.

You should have a look at the new Proliant DL585 machines that HP started 
shipping last week. They have the same 4U chassis as the DL580 and 
supports up to four Opterons. You can have up to two 16-slot memory 
carriers which together can hold up to 64GB of RAM.

They look like really nice machines. Though like all Proliants, they're 
somewhat expensive to populate.
