I've never worked with a BOXX. Aside from the top end Opteron
systems from them, I don't see anything to particularly recommend

I thought that we had finally gotten to the point were lots of people
were doing 8 core machines, both for servers and workstations.
Previously, 4+ core workstations weren't that common.
