Yes, but I very much doubt that you can afford four Opteron 4xx CPUs and a four-way mobo. Even then, the Opteron is a workstation/server chip, not a gaming chip. It requires Registered ECC memory which raises latencies and results in poor gaming performance. That was a large part of AMD's impetus to release socket 939 CPUs (is it any wonder that the FX line is so closely spec'd to the Opteron?).
