Can you use any intel processor? Reason why I ask is because that instructions call for the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 3.0GHz 12MB L2 Cache LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor which sells for $324, but I would be happy with this one: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield 2.83GHz 12MB L2 Cache LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor $259
And can you use other motherboards or do they use what's on that list because of OSX?
Was curious...looking for a motherboard that you could put 2 processors on but can't seem to find them.

You biggest ticket item is the CPU, second is power supply, third is the video card. fourth is the motherboard, fifth is case and so on and on.
I would buy the CPU and motherboard first. then buy the videocard and case then buy the power supply and hard drive. Buy the memory last because the memory is the cheapest really and by then you can decide on how much memory to dump into the system.
