Default Athlon XP "server" boards?

I'm specing out a new web server, and want to be able to compare an
Athlon-based system with a P4 based system. It's relatively easy to
find "server" quality boards for the P4, but I can't find any info for
Athlon server boards (except the Tyan Thunder K7X Pro, but I don't need
dual processor and it's twice the price of the Intel S875WP1-E that's
being quoted for the Intel-based system).

If you need server purposes, I'd highly highly highly recommend going
with a dual processor setup. You can always run a single cpu and upgrade
to 2 later when you need better performance. For server purposes, the
AMD 64 Opteron blows any Xeon away. It's actually not even close.

if you must stick with single cpu

Dual opteron boards are OK. Building a system based on a Tyan Thunder S2885
mainboard now... Still waiting on parts so I can't tell just HOW good it
will be but AMD Opterons are definatlely an option.

OK? I think they're a little better than just OK... but that's just me
