Journal justanyone's Journal: IWILL DK8N Motherboard question

I asked a question of the IWILL people, makers of the DK8N motherboard ( see ars technica for a nice description of it in their 'god box' how-to section).

Wondering what maximum speed of processor it will handle, currently and in the future.

If I buy it today, I can plug in the Opteron 250. What about when there's a 252, 254, even 260, say 2 or 3 years down the line?

Also, i'm wondering if both processors have to run at the same speed. Can I buy a 246 and a 250 and run them at their respective maximum speeds, or do I need to run them both at the speed of the 246?

I don't know if you'll know this... But, if I decide to get a dual core when they come out, then it'll be a 4 processor box. Does that mean that 2 dual-core-opterons will run nicely together? If so, do they need to be 250 or do they have to be the 450 versions, since it's a 450 sort of thing? Can I have one dual core and one single core for a 3 processor box?
