    My friend has $750 to blow for his non-profit before the year's end. He is looking at doing a big ass RAID 5, or a dual proc/4 core MOBO.

    Recommendations?

    so he wants cpus + mobo for $750? Good luck. I highly doubt you'll be able to get any Intel setup for that. Unless you buy the CPU's off ebay or something.

    Might want to consider whether an i7 setup, or even Yorkfield, would actually offer better performance before spending money. Don't forget he will need FB-DIMMs if going Intel and an E-ATX case for most dual socket boards.
