Sorry to destroy your dreams, but quad core xeon is a bit of marketing 
gag, only sometimes with higher power than dual core:

I've got a german artice measuring with CPUspec 2006, the simple result 
is a dual-cpu quad-core Intel platform has the power of 4 cores, which 
means 8 cores running only at half power. Pour quoi?

Sorry for being OT, but I couldn't let that "I trust in god and Intel" 
sentence alone.
