dual xeon system

I'm wondering if anyone is building a dual Xeon system? my last system was built on a tyan tiger 133, I'm running a P4 system now and plan on a dual xeon upgrade and any motherboard recommendations would be great. I'm thinking about a TYAN Tempest i5400PW motherboard with the case from the DIY 6 project any suggestions ?

We just added the following ot the end of our article:

For those looking to build the most powerful 8-Core workstation you can, we recommend the latest new motherboard from Tyan the Tempest i5400XT (S5396). Based on the new Intel 5400 chipset this Dual Xeon motherboard gives you two 16x PCIe and one 8x PCIe slots so you'll be able to add all the addition hardware you need for more professional level work.

Not sure the case will be a good fit with the dual xeon mobo

Intel also has a motherboard like that. Check out:

As Videoguy already said, it is an eATX motherboard so be careful choosing a case. 8 cores should really fast!
