  3. Not using it for CADD. Also, I don't need 2 CPU's to run After Effects, Visual Studio 2010, Adobe Premiere, Open Broadcaster, FTP/RDP connections open 24/7, and other intensive visuals / software.

    I never said you did. I just said it's not a Work Station. Work Station PC is a Dual CPU Build.

  5. I still call it a workstation. Also, I didn't want to pay for a dual-cpu mobo and possibly 2 Xeon's or 2 i7's.

  6. i7s don't have the ability to be paired. Hence why the xeons were created.
